Remember about a month back when I got to test out eight mystery fragrances! Well the three that made the cut have been announced and they were all in my top four! In fact my top two made the cut!
Mystery Fragrance #4 was my favorite (I gushed and gushed and gushed over it!) and it made the cut (thank goodness, I don’t know what I’d have done if it hadn’t made the cut! HA! Yeah I’m being overly dramatic!)
Anyway here’s the three that made a cut, their new name and descriptions that will leave you drooling!
Pinot Grigio: This fragrance was a winner of the 2011 SOAP Panel for Fall. It is ideal for wine based soaps and products though stands on its own rather nicely. The main notes to make up this fruity wine scent are sparkling bergamot, peach nectar, apple, Italian white grape, black plum, violet rounding out with supporting notes of warm clove bud. It smells like a very adult, fruity floral grape juice. This scent softens a bit in cold process soap and goes a warm yellow
Bordeaux Blend: This fragrance is designed to be a big, bold spicy red wine fragrance. With notes of tawny port and cognac being sweetened up with lighter softer pinot noir, vanilla and raspberry, Bordeaux Blend is toughened up with spicy notes of cinnamon, clove and vineyard dirt. This fragrance can move quickly in CP soap so be prepared and after a full cure, the spice notes come out more than the grape notes.
Plum Tea: This clean fruity floral has a beguiling soft freshness that one 2011 SOAP Panel Tester described as “autumn rain on flower garden”. After beautiful white tea and damask plum and herb notes, this fragrance is beautifully supported with sweet notes of honeydew melon, quince apple, lily of the valley and chamomile. The fragrance finishes with a touch of black tea to add depth and tamp down on the sweetness.
I think I was the first to order them today…and if not the first, close to it :D They should get here in a week and then I’ll be making THREE more batches of soaps! They’ll be ready in time for Christmas!
