Nag Champa and Vanilla soap pictures

so here is what I worked on this weekend. Almost out of supplies(lye) till I place another order. I figure I have enough for one more batch and I am just trying to decide what one to make.....
Top one is Very Vanilla with rainbow blue mica, the color may still shift on this one as it cures.
Well sad to report the vanilla is changing to the doomed Play Doh scent, I have hit that problem every now and then(as do other soapers). I am thinking this batch is going to be a goner, such a waste of supplies :(
side note I may be doing a give away very soon, I am thinking a box full of my reject scents, bad cuts, old soap mold(smaller sized), this batch! Still good soap just not great soaps! stay tuned.
The bottom one is Nag Champa with brown oxide and activated charcoal.

~Does the color of the activated charcoal ever bleed?
How does it mix with other colors??

Nice soaps BTW.....

it bleeds some but not very much compared to the black oxide. I haven't really tried mixing it with other colors to darken them down, might have to try that. I have used it in less amounts and gotten some nice grey's like in this Nag Champa batch.

What's up with the vanilla scent changing to Play Doh scent? Is it just this brand of Very Vanilla or all vanilla fragrances?

I have had it happen with other scents. One being Cupid. This FO wasn't the freshest so maybe that caused this one to turn? I swear I made this scent when I first started soaping and it was ok. The cupid wasn't old when I made it. So maybe it was just the soap gremlins getting my batch of soap?!!!
