Pumpkin Lager

September 13, 2015

There are 16 bars of this soap and once they’re gone, they are gone. Bramble Berry discounted this scent. I actually like it (which surprised me…I didn’t think I would!). The design isn’t anything special but this soap discolors! I added a lot of white (more than I probably should have) just to get the middle to end up a tan color!

Pumpkin Lager

A warm blend of Pumpkin Puree, Fresh Ginger, Crushed Nutmeg, Warm Cinnamon, Vanilla Sugar and Sparkling Rum.

Pinot Grigio

September 10, 2015

Did you know that back in 2011 I was on the Bramble Berry Tester panel for this fragrance! It was the #1 choice of all the testers (including me).  It doesn’t remind me of wine, but there’s just something about this scent that draws me to it!

Pinot Grigio

The main notes to make up this fruity wine scent are sparkling bergamot, peach nectar, apple, Italian white grape, black plum, violet rounding out with supporting notes of warm clove bud.

Almond Biscotti

August 29, 2015

I have been asked repeatedly over the years if I have an almond soap.  So, last year I made a small batch of almond biscotti soap in the Fall. It sold out in less than a month. I brought it back this year! I changed up the design a bit and I really like how it turned out.  If you like almond this smells just like almond extract to me!

Almond Biscotti

A mixture of toasted almonds, sweet cake flour, and drizzled chocolate.

2015 Fall Soaps

August 26, 2015

I picked out my fall soaps (most of them) back in February this year.  For all that time I didn’t have a clue what I was going to do design wise.  About a week before I was set to start making them (in the end of July) everything just came together and I figured out what I wanted to do.  Not sure why I was so uninspired this year, but ultimately the inspiration kicked in and I think I have a cool batch of fall soaps this year!  Here’s what I went with! Pictures will follow over the next couple weeks of each soap!

1. Turkish Mocha

It starts with creamy top notes of milk, cardamom, cocoa and a touch of nutmeg. The alluring, complex blend winds down to heady scents of vanilla and honey run, and of course, Turkish Coffee.

2. Almond Biscotti

A mixture of toasted almonds, sweet cake flour, and drizzled chocolate.

3. Pinot Grigio

The main notes to make up this fruity wine scent are sparkling bergamot, peach nectar, apple, Italian white grape, black plum, violet rounding out with supporting notes of warm clove bud.

4. Nag Champa

Renowned for its earthy scent, it contains Juniper, Patchouli and Vanilla, Rose Geranium and Jasmine.

5. Pumpkin Spice

Dark, creamy, and rich pumpkin with notes of Cinnamon, Cardamom and Nutmeg.

6. Pumpkin Lager

A warm blend of Pumpkin Puree, Fresh Ginger, Crushed Nutmeg, Warm Cinnamon, Vanilla Sugar and Sparkling Rum.

7. Spiced Amber Ale

 The fragrance starts with a fresh citrus top note and has a warm, exotic finish.  The base is a wonderful synergy of pine, clove, honey and vanilla.

8. Patchouli Cinnamon

I can’t stand Patchouli, but so many have asked for it! I’ve gotten a large number of requests for different blends. Ultimately I decided to go with Cinnamon. The two scents work together!

9. Oakmoss

Wet and earthy oakmoss with green vetiver, vanilla and nutmeg.

 


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!

SET UP:

END RESULT:

orange blossom

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.
