Are brambleberry fragrances mostly just for soaps? The reason I ask is because it seems the scents are not lasting long at all in bath salts or bath bombs. I placed my salts in a cellophane bag and kept it closed for about 2 weeks and you cannot smell much. Does the scent last longer in a plastic container?
When I used E.O. the scent would last longer.

Essential oils will generally always be stronger as they are a more concentrated form of the scent.

How much fragrance are you using in your non-soap products?

What was the amount of a bath salts to how much scent? Which scent did you use? Did you weigh everything?

Do you weight EO / Fo in Bath salts, because I don't and they are very fragrant. I find some scents to be very loud and those are lavender eucalyptus peppermint , but I think everything is stronger in bath salts. The scent i find the hardest is chocolate scents, especially in the soaps that I buy, they are almost non existent.

I used 8 ounces of salts and added 1 tablespoons of baking soda, and tiny bit of Almond Oil and I added 20 drops of various F.O. I did not measure the F.O. It seems like the fruity and vanilla nut smells stay better but the main ones I cannot smell are the Christmas Scents. Sugar Plum Fairy and Sleigh Ride are not staying very well.
I have one scent from WSP that is called Christmas Cookie and it's not staying strong.
Should I be weighing the FO or EO? I just do drops.
then I thought maybe I am so used to smelling all these scents then my nose is kinda off.

Always weigh everything. Otherwise what you make is not repeatable because you have no idea what is in it. It's no good working in 'drops' or 'spoons' or 'cups' and so on. Proper scales are quite cheap; on EBay for instance you can buy digital scales accurate to 0.01g that weigh up to 200g, and scales accurate to 0.1g that can weigh up to 1Kg, for around $10. Some aromas are much stronger than others.
