It’s been a number of years since I made pie soap and when I got the peach nectar scent I knew I wanted to make it with my pie design again.

I’ve done more flower scents this spring that I have in a long long time! Even a lot of the fruity ones have undertones of floral to them. This one didn’t quite go as plan when it came to piping the flowers, but you’d probably not guess that unless I pointed it out to you, huh?
HYACINTH: the fresh floral aroma of real hyacinth flowers.
Look at how the green morphed and then turned back to it’s original dark green!

I was in the mood for COLOR! And more specifically neons! I haven’t used neons in so long. I don’t know why that is cause oh man they make some fun soaps!
HAWAIIAN GINGER: is a tropical array containing top notes of tangy pineapple, freshly-sliced summer melons, and crisp apple slices. Middle notes include iris, rose, jasmine, and cyclamen. Base notes of vanilla and musk make this fragrance a perfect blend.
Look at this loveliness! And the final cut version I was happy with too. This soap just puts a smile on my face.
I did a reverse imprint on this one, but it didn’t come out. The soap as you can see just was ashy and soft and isn’t staying to the bottom of the soap. Oh well!

I think I need to rename this one. There’s no lavender in it even though the name implies such. I’m just not sure what to call it. It’s a floral-y/apple-y scent…but since I couldn’t come up with a name to fit the scent has stayed lavender-apple :D. This soap didn’t go at all as planned. I was rushed and didn’t have time for the bottom layer to set up and the top IPS broke completely through and once it started breaking I just went with it and well here’s what I ended up with.
LAVENDER APPLE: starts with top notes of red delicious apple, raspberries, plum, and sugar; followed by middle notes of floral rosaceous green notes, lilac, pear, and eucalyptus; and sits on a powdery, woodsy musk base note.

Let me just preface the upcoming posts by saying my photos didn’t come out great. The spring soaps are prettier than the pictures lead you to believe. I had a rough day taking photos a few weeks ago. So, as I present the spring soaps over the next weeks I apologize in advance for the not so great photos.
Ok! So I really love black and white. I always have. This soap is probably one of my favorite designs of the spring soaps. I really should do black and white more often!
AMAZING GRACE: Italian bergamot and sparkling lemon are sweetened with freshly picked citron and neroli. A white floral jasmine, orange blossom and rose are blended with sheer musk and cedarwood.

This was a blend that I didn’t think would work, but really did! And quite well. Maybe because I know the two scents I blended but my nose catches one and then the other and then back to the other. It’s funny. I do like though. It mellows the sandalwood scent a bit and gives it a bit more of a musky scent.
A woody, lush and sensual note of sandalwood blended with rustic Amber and bold Parisian Lavender. Combined with these main scents is a mysterious Black Myrrh, dulcet vanilla Tonka bean, and a splash of Egyptian Musk.
