Vanilla Verbena

*super big sigh*

Once again vanilla ruins my plans. I really do like this fragrance.  I’m not a fan of vanilla but this scent had more to it…there’s an earthiness in it.

Vanilla Verbena: Bright Verbena, Sicilian Lemon, Orange Zest, Jasmine, Creamy Helitrope, Amber, White Musk, Precious Woods

I thought the embeds would be fun and a great contrast to a pretty blue…while the fragrance didn’t affect the pink much (it’s a little darker than the original color) it completely morphed the blue.  (I didn’t add any fragrance to the white hearts).

Nothing is technically “wrong” with this soap, but it’s not quite as pretty as I was going for (and after doing all that work for the embeds!)

Will be available in the store about mid-February.

  1. Have you tried using a vanilla stabilizer?

    Normal VCS doesn’t work in CP soap and there is some CP VCS but it’s expensive and I didn’t find it really worked that well. My soaps always still eventually turned brown… Jennifer

    • I have some that I’ve used before in CP. True, it does eventually still turn…but not bad…maybe just a light tan instead of crap brown. I use it more when working with colors/micas, keeps them truer. They will only darken a little.

    So colourful and lovely!

  4. To me it reminds me of denim with patches. I think they came out great……Sherry

  5. I think it looks amazing–like a piece of patchwork!! Those embeds must have taken a lot of time to make. I like that you used some non-tradtional Valentine colors, too.

  6. I’m sorry they didn’t turn out how you wanted! They’re still so pretty though. I still like these 🙂 I know sometimes the vanilla makes me want to scream when it messes up my colors.
