Some soaps just work perfectly. I pretty much new what I wanted to do with this soap the instant I read the fragrance name. Black and purple…it just made sense. The heart bit came a little later. I wanted to add some white to brighten it up a bit. I thought the white embed would pop with the black and purple. Just love this soap.
Black Amber and Lavender: Deep and sophisticated this fragrance blends rustic Amber with bold Parisian Lavender. Combined with these main scents is a mysterious Black Myrrh, dulcet vanilla Tonka bean, and a splash of Egyptian Musk. The fragrance is rounded out with a surprising addition of raw Clary Sage resulting in an earthy concoction with hints of sweetness and pleasing floral notes.
There are only a limited number of these available. You’ll find them in the store the end of March!
Day after cutting: This soap was really soft. I didn’t cut it till 48 hours after I made it. I didn’t discount the water (not sure why I normally always do) and I used a full 4oz of FO for a 5lb batch…which I don’t normally do. So there was extra water/liquid in it than I normally have. Now the outside is getting a layer of ash. I know it’ll wash off after a couple uses but it doesn’t look as pretty. Oh well, still smells good and I’m sure it’ll find some good homes. Just frustrating. I only seem to have this problem with ash when I have soft batches…
