I am a LOVER of fragrance...always have been. Please don't misunderstand the jist of this post; I adore cold process soap. Love the moisturizing, love the colors and swirls. Love the artistry. However, I'm really diggin' on this Hot Process thing -mainly because the FRAGRANCE is fantastic! (Gotta work on getting the bars harder, though.)
The fragrances remain so intense and true in the finished bar, that I am hooked...hooked, I tell you! I've always wanted to do a soap that was truly Almond. I love that smell. Well, I've finally found an essential oil blend (previous post) in almond, and a technique (hot process) that doesn't destroy it. Yippee!
I just cut these bars this a.m., and I'm going to try one in a few (gotta hurry this post or I'll be late) but they smell the best, to me, of all the soaps I've made in the last 8 years! They aren't really "pretty" per se, but I can see the beauty in these babies...and I can surely smell the beauty! :)
I may have to do a giveaway or send my soapin' buds samples or something...I have to share this scent!
What do you think about a "Nutty" giveaway? Maybe Almond Soap, Bath Salts & Solid Perfume (been experimenting with that, too) O.K., I talked myself into it. "A Nutty Giveaway" it shall be.
Just comment to enter, and I'll have my son draw the winner out of a bowl....how about on Friday?
Yes, we'll do it Friday.
There you have it! Good Luck, Buddies!
