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.

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!

If you’ve been following my blog or FB page for any length of time you’ve noticed I love soap stamping. I especially love it when I can create a scene. I invite you to go take a swim in the ocean and admire the fish. 😀
PARADISE REEF: begins with notes of nectarine, bird of paradise, and water lily, followed by middle notes of passion flower, orchid, and hyacinth. A well-rounded fragrance empowered by fresh air and salt water notes.
The picture doesn’t do this soap justice. Again I had a bad picture day when I photographed the spring soaps. But, it really is a cute soap with the fish and shell.
And guess what today’s my birthday! 😀 Use the code 40FREESHIP to get free shipping on orders over $40 plus I’ll throw in a gift lip balm with your order!

I was in the mood for COLOR! And more specifically neons! I haven’t used neons in so long. I don’t know why that is cause oh man they make some fun soaps!
HAWAIIAN GINGER: is a tropical array containing top notes of tangy pineapple, freshly-sliced summer melons, and crisp apple slices. Middle notes include iris, rose, jasmine, and cyclamen. Base notes of vanilla and musk make this fragrance a perfect blend.
Look at this loveliness! And the final cut version I was happy with too. This soap just puts a smile on my face.
I did a reverse imprint on this one, but it didn’t come out. The soap as you can see just was ashy and soft and isn’t staying to the bottom of the soap. Oh well!

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.
Top: Tropical fruit

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.

The simplicity of this design is what I love. I got on a “reverse imprint” kick this go around with soaps. It started with Amazing Grace and spilled over into this one, and once I started I couldn’t seem to stop. I think the dark green is a lovely contrast to the white and pink.
LILY OF THE VALLEY: a very fresh and green muguet de bois; true to name lily of the valley aroma.
PS: Again I apologize for the crappy photos. *sigh*
