i just made my very first batch of soap, using Maremare's awesome tute, and I added 2 tsp of tumeric, and it colored it a very pretty dijon mustard color ... I don't think it changed the scent of it ... nope, just checked, it smells like rosemary citrus ... the color has lightened, so it's almost dark lemony, but has tiny little orange freckles in it. It's only been curing a few days, so at the end of the week I'll check and see if it's lightened up a bit more.

Just a random note..  a few weeks ago, I boiled down red wine in a heavy sauce pan until it was really thick (but be careful I burned the first batch!).  Anyway, I added the syrup at trace to part of my batch and it was an awesome dark purple color.  Unfortunately the lye turned it a chocolately brown which sucked for a floral batch, but it would be perfect for a cinnamon/coffee/chocolate batch.  Just a head's up, it cost me something like $4 and worked like a charm..

Just ordered 4 different oxides from Oregon Trail. I am a HP Soaper, mainly because my 2 attempts a CP were not good. 2nd one was at least savable. Going to try it again since I have 5 different scents coming in to play with. Will hope to remember to update on the colorants when I get to making CP with them.

Didn't know about that. I was not going to order from them again because Priority Mail shipping charge and the package came in the time frame of first class.  Brambleberry is where I will order from for soap stuff..except some scents we get from Candle Science (love that place .. great service from them so far).
