Lavender Apple

May 22, 2017

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.

Amazing Grace

May 8, 2017

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.

Sandalwood & Amber

April 14, 2017

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.

Wild Currant & Sandalwood

April 12, 2017

I made this soap years ago (a different design) and really liked it and decided to make it again this year.  I just made a small batch.  The design DID NOT go as planned. I know if you’re looking at you probably say it looks great. And it does, but it was NOT what I wanted.  😀

It is a blend with top notes of Clementine, Grapefruit, and Black Berries; middle notes of Wild Fig, Black Currant, and Passion Fruit; all surrounded with base notes of Precious Woods, Sandalwood, Vanilla, and Metallic Musk.

Pineapple Papaya Ginger

April 9, 2017

This is another blend I created and love. I made the soap for me.  I had to really cool intricate design planned and then I added in the fragrance and seizing started and I went into “jam it in the mold” mode.  It still smells yummy!

Sweet, juicy and tropical! A tantilizing blend of citrus top notes, and sweet fruits and sugared base notes. At first sniff, mandarin, pineapple and coconut palms open this bright fragrance. Mid notes of papaya guava and pomegranate are rounded out with a base of sugarcane, sandalwood and cypress. Tough with a hint of ginger.

When soap doesn’t go as planned and turns out better than what you had planned = WINNING!  I love this layered look with the mica lines between each layer.  Mind you this was nothing like what I thought I’d do for this design :).

It  is a feminine, gourmand aroma with luscious rich top notes of lemon, raspberry, honeydew melon, black currants; with middle notes of jasmine, gardenia, and nutmeg; bottom notes of white chocolate, musk, sandalwood, and patchouli.

Dragon’s Blood

March 27, 2017

This is a really popular scent. I’ve never made it before.  I don’t know why, but some how it just never made it to the top of my list.  Then I saw a really cool stamp and I was like I should make this soap!  And there you have it.  I made it more because I wanted to use the stamp, but that’s okay!

This mysterious, alluring blend is difficult to describe. With warming notes of amber, incense, Madagascar vanilla and patchouli, our Dragon’ s Blood Fragrance Oil is lightened up with layers of romantic notes such as rose, jasmine and lilac. Finally, our sensual, deep blend is topped off with the colorful, light touches of blood orange and grapefruit.
