"Maximus Marble" HP Dude Soap
The latest in my "Marble" HP Soap series, this soap is fragraced with an EO blend that I concocted for men, my husband in particular. It's a warm, fresh, sexy combination that is quite appealing ...I believe it would make a great men's aftershave or cologne...maybe I'll look into experimenting for the hubby!
Although it smells nothing (presumably) like a hot, sweaty gladiator...the name was inspired by the main character of the Gladiator movie, "Maximus."
I hope you can see the purple color of the "veining"...it's from alkanet root powder, and looks really nice in person. I'm really liking the look of the marbling technique, and I hope others do, too. (Always nice to actually sell some of my creations!)
I really love this HP soapmaking. It's certainly a longer and more involved process, fun and challenging at the sames time. I suppose I'll keep working on my new HP passion until I get tired of it...but I think that may be a while! :)
