If you love the sweet vanilla and almond scent of almond biscotti then you’ll love this soap. I knew the soap would discolor so I was trying to create oval embeds that would look like almond slivers. It didn’t quite work, but if you use your imagination and go a little abstract you can see them. Right?? Now available!
I love the small of this soap. I wish I’d picked a different color pink (maybe a much lighter one. The green ended up darkening more than I though (because in part of the fragrance oil). I feel like the neon pink just competes with the green. I was trying to do a drop technique. Not really what I was going for…but the soap really does smell amazing. It’s got this spicy kick to it I love.
Pepperberry: This complex warm blend starts out with traditional Black Pepper notes mixed with Black Orchid. This spicy, sensual mixture is accentuated with All Spice, Wildberries and Bulgarian Rose, finished up with heavier notes of Pine Needle, Oak and just a small hint of Vanilla.
Loved how this soap turned out. I had left over black soap from something I was making and just poured it into my heart molds because they were sitting there. When I was wondering what to do with the soap I though something red/maroon might go well with the black. Went through my fragrances and saw the Pomegranate and Black Currant and knew I’d try and swirl and embed the hearts. LOVE!
Pomegranate & Black Currant: This blend has tart Pomegranate notes, enlivened by citrus zest and intertwined with juicy Black Currant notes with just some light hints of soft florals and leafy greens to give the fragrance depth. It is a surprisingly sweet blend, almost as if the Pomegranates and Black Currants were sugared prior to blending.
I was working with a new fragrance and had NO IDEA how it would react in the pot. This should have been my first clue to TAKE IT SLOW. Nope not me. I had this really cool three layered idea with mica veins between layers. That didn’t happened. The fragrance caused the soap to seize pretty quickly and I was left mashing the yellow into the mold. I unmolded it and wasn’t too happy. It had a very rustic feel. I liked the two colors I’d managed to do. And the scent was phenomenal, but I wasn’t happy.
The soap has since grown on me. It really is a simple soap, but I think maybe it’s simplicity amongst all the other more decorative soaps is what has made it stand out to me! Nectarine & White Ginger is now available!
I made a small 5lb back of Turkish Mocha last year and it was gone within a month. So, I brought it back this year! The fragrance discolors the soap something fierce so there’s little I can do design wise, but this swirl still looks pretty and I’m happy with the soap!
Turkish Mocha: has a creamy top notes of milk, cardamom, cocoa and a touch of nutmeg. The alluring, complex blend winds down to heady scents of vanilla and honey run, and of course, Turkish Coffee.
