It’s a Black Tie Affair!

May 24, 2015

Here’s Black Tie Affair–a soap for the men!  I love the colors of this soap.  It just makes me smile!

Black Tie Affair: Sophisticated notes of black peppercorn and leather are carefully crafted with warm woods, patchouli, musk and citrus.

Orange Blossom

April 26, 2015

There’s a lot of work that goes into my soap photos.  The set up process takes more than the actual taking and editing the photo sometimes!  This is just one example of what the end set up looked like and then how by manipulating the angle the camera was at changed the whole composition of the soap!

END RESULT:

Orange Blossom:  the blend starts fairly sharp and heavy on the bergamot, and calms to a lovely orange blossom heart with citrus notes and just the right amount of sweetness. It is a sparkling, cheerful, summery blend.


Huckleberry Harvest

April 22, 2015

I was in the mood for purple the day I decided to soap with huckleberry.  Part of why I decided to make this fragrance is because I thought it would work well with purple.  I am really pleased with the swirls in this soap.

Huckleberry Harvest: a bouquet reminiscent of blueberry with raspberry, grape, strawberry and peach top notes with a sweet background.


Watercress & Aloe

April 18, 2015

The design of this soap came about because I was looking at my dry rack and going I don’t have a single blue soap.  I’ll make blue today!  It might not match its name, but I love the rock look of the embeds.

Watercress & Aloe

Watercress & Aloe: a blend beginning with subtle top notes of lemon rind and fresh palm leaves, followed by fresh watercress and aloe notes, and finishing with jasmine & eucalyptus.


Moroccan Mint & Midnight Pomegranate w/ Loofah

April 16, 2015

I did this soap years ago (with a slightly different fragrance blend).  It was a popular one and I’m not sure why I stopped making it, but it’s back again!

Top Layer:

Midnight Pomegranate: sparkling notes of Citrus, Dewberry and Cassis to dress up the deeper notes of Musk, Sandalwood and Vanilla. This fragrance is deep and sensual with a sweet tart twist.

Bottom Layer:

Moroccan Mint: This is a scrumptious blend of Spearmint, Peppermint and Corn Mint, with just a touch of black tea sprinkled in to provide a stable, full bottom note. It’s cool, crisp, and refreshing.

Shredded Loofah in the bottom portion for some scrub exfoliating!

Honeysuckle

April 14, 2015

I’m in love with the design of this soap.  It’s simple and clean and with a reverse embed on the tops and bottom.  I used jojoba beads in the soap for some scrubby exfoliating!

Heavenly Honeysuckle: Notes of tuberose, nectarine, and cherry are picked up on first impression. However, the middle notes of honeysuckle, jasmine, and rose quickly make their appearance.  The base notes of sandalwood and musk give this fragrance a calming foundation.

Chocolate Espresso

April 12, 2015

I’m not a coffee person, but if you like chocolate and coffee then this soap is for you!  I can say I love the tiger swirl in this soap.  It came out better than I expected (even though the white changed to tan which I expected).
