If you are using a particular solution rate, pls mention the rate.
lye weight x 2.1 water weight = 32% solution rate
lye weight x 2.0 water weight = 33% solution rate
lye weight x 1.5 water weight = 40% solution rate

Did you add the fragrance alone or was it part of a blend in your batch ?

Size does matter *grin*
Some fragrances do very well in smaller sized batches and then misbehave in larger ones.
