Six weeks ago when I made this soap I raved about how much I loved the fragrance.
It reminded me of these candies that I had for the first time down in New Orleans. I love the taste and the smell of it. I carried some around in my handbag for years just because it smelled so good.
I only had a small sample bottle of it so I went back for more and it was.....OUT OF STOCK. Forever. I went to every online soap supply store I could think of and it was the same everywhere. OUT OF STOCK FOREVER.
I didn't give up. I kept looking and I finally found it in a candle supply store that carried fragrances that can also be used in soap. They only had two small sample bottles left and I bought them. It seems it is a Lush knock off scent that is actually called Bathos. I did a nose test and I can't tell the difference between Bathos and Twisted Violet so I'm good to go for another couple of loaves when the time comes.
As my shelves empty of the soap I am wrapping I am getting itchy to make more. I also have these three new summer fragrances waiting in the wings.
With that last order of fragrances I also bought several pans of glycerin soap. When it gets hot and sticky out this is the soap I reach for the most.
It was a surprise to see that the usually unscented pans of soap now come in scents. Of course I am going to try these two out. Beer and wine soap? Yes, please.
