Is your oil or fat fresh? If not soap can end up smelling rancid.

Are you using higher than normal temperatures to mix your oils and lye? My temps are about 100 degrees whan I mix the two.

I do HP olive oil soap. Before I got used to the scent of my soaps, they smelled faintly foodish or doughy to me. Now I am used to it and even like it. Not that it was bad, just different. Is that the scent you mean?
