Each year I try and do a couple floral scents (not my thing, but I know others love it). One of the florals I went with this year is Wisteria and White Gardenia.
White Gardenia: begins with top notes of citrus, lily of the valley, and aldehydes, followed by middle notes of white gardenia, jasmine, and muguet; sitting on a subtle note of amber woods.
Apparently I don’t really make blue soap. I was looking at my dry rack and all my standard soaps and I realized there was no blue in my soap collection. For whatever reason blue is just never a color that calls to me and so I never think about using it. It really is a pretty color though and so I’m going to try and use it a little more!

I bought this fragrance on a whim. I like raspberry and I thought why not I’ll try a small batch. In the bottle I loved the smell, and it holds true in the soap so I’m really happy!
Raspberry Porter: It’s a fresh combination of Sun ripened Raspberry, Squeezed Lemon and a winey fruit scent with hints of Green Leaf and Rose.
It’s a clean and simple design (did some soaps like this last year), but I love the look. Added jojoba beads to it for look and exfoliating.

It’s that time of year where I’m starting a new round of seasonal soaps. I’m bringing back a couple I did last year (Honey Almond, Beer Soap, and Huckleberry Harvest) and then trying some new scents! The first of these new scents is Wild Musk.
This fragrance oil by Natures Garden smells similar to Coty’s Wild Musk. Sensual skin musks blended together with exotic jasmine, ylang ylang warmed by sandalwood and amber.
There’s something about the zebra swirl I love. Every batch turns out different, but it still looks so cool every time! I decided to add an exfoliant to this soap and used a grounded vanilla bean. I love the black speckle look.

And the last winter scent: Holiday Berry! My favorite and the favorite of many of my customers. I changed up the design again this year. I like this. I kept the pink/green/white color scheme, but only did an in the pot swirl for two colors and end had that pink surround the ITP swirl. I like it! Now listed!
Holiday Berry: Ripe raspberry intermingled with orange zest and warm musk.
