Coffee soap has been on my to do list for like a year. I finally got around to doing it. It’s a simple soap with coffee grounds for an exfoliant. Smells like coffee (not my favorite scent but I know many will love it).
So, I’m only slightly OCD or obsessive or whatever word we want to use to describe the fact that I individually places each coffee bean in this picture trying to get the groupings to look like they’d just perfectly and randomly fallen into place! 😀

I’m not a vanilla girl (unless I’m eating it). The smell just turns me off in bath products and soap. But I have to say there is something about this blend that I like. It’s sweet, but the spicy element of the cinnamon makes it really appealing.
May I say trying to “pose” vanilla beans is a pain in the backside! Oh my word I must have taken 15 different photos with the vanilla in different positions trying to get one that looked good. I think these two were the best of them though I still wasn’t 100% happy.
Vanilla Cinnamon Soap is now listed HERE!!

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.
