I messed up the color theme on this soap. I was making two batches and I reversed colors on the two. It ended up a happy mistake. I like the color themed better!
BEACH DAISIES: begins with top notes of Asian lemongrass, dune grass, and daisy petals; followed by middle notes of gardenia bloom, ylang ylang, and clove leaf; sitting on base notes of blond woods, amber sands, and sheer musk.
Top Notes: Asian lemongrass, dune grass, daisy petals
Mid Notes: gardenia bloom, ylang ylang, clove leaf
Base Notes: blond woods, amber sands, sheer musk

I was going to attempt the butterfly swirl here, but I didn’t get my proportions right and the soap would NOT thicken up…which to effectively do a butterfly swirl I really needed it to be “not runny”. I just did a modified swirl with it and I actually do like it, but it’s nothing at all like what I had planned to do!
MANDARIN Tiki: Is a complex aroma of mandarin rind, red currants, strawberries, and blueberries; with middle notes of watercress and palm leaves; balanced with musky bottom notes.

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.
Peach Nectar: fresh peach blended perfectly with a hint of the tropics create this rich, sweet, sultry scent.
Top: Peach, apple, plum, raspberry, coconut, citrus
Middle: Jasmine, violet, lily, cinnamon, clove
Base: Vanilla, caramel, tonka, musk

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!

When soaps don’t go as planned… That would be this one. I didn’t think about discoloring. And my pretty teal and white themed soap totally failed. I was really bummed. The soap isn’t much to look at, but it does smell really good. That brown though…not what I wanted! 😦
Tropical Escape: A playful rendition of the classic tropical mixed drink that blends fresh pineapple and orange with tart cranberries. Notes of vodka and peach schnapps give this fragrance its “true to life” scent.
