Vanilla Champagne…I had really good intentions with this soap, but it just didn’t do what I wanted. There’s just too much gold. I really like the stamps, but I needed to do something to break up the expanse of gold soap…maybe if I’d added starts or something. I don’t know. I just wasn’t really happy with how this one turned out.
A sparkling aldehydic accent creates a fizzy effect for the citrus top notes of lime and orange to open this blend. Hints of green floral and rum liquor notes from the fragrant heart. Clear woody tones combine with earthy accents while a base of vanilla bean surrounds the fragrance.

The next soap on my list was Winder Garden (but I call it Winter Wonderland). I wanted to create a winter scene of pine trees. As you can see my background was too busy (too much blue) and so the stamped green trees get lost. It’s unfortunate, because I really like this design otherwise. If I ever do it again I know better.
This fragrance begins with top notes of fresh lime and menthol; middle notes of Douglas fir and lavender; with full-body base notes of eucalyptus and pine.

And the last winter scent: Holiday Berry! My favorite and the favorite of many of my customers. I changed up the design again this year. I like this. I kept the pink/green/white color scheme, but only did an in the pot swirl for two colors and end had that pink surround the ITP swirl. I like it! Now listed!
Holiday Berry: Ripe raspberry intermingled with orange zest and warm musk.
