If you like alluring, mysterious, difficult to describe fragrances, this might be your new go-to soap. Warming notes of amber, Madagascar vanilla and patchouli, with layers of floral notes such as rose, jasmine and lilac on top of that; this sensual fragrance is topped off with the light touches of blood orange and grapefruit. No one thing stands out more than any other, and you'd be hard-pressed to call this just an earthy, or just a floral, or just a fruity fragrance. Imagine a night market full of spices and foods, with the underlying smell of sandy breezes... and that's what you've got here.
The base of this soap has a creamy, custard color to it; but some fragrances - especially those containing vanilla - can cause the soap to darken to a tan or even a dark brown. I try to wait until this begins to happen to photograph the soap so that you are aware of what you are getting; however, it does get darker over time so your soap, upon arrival, may be darker than photographed.
A great gift for that yarn lover in your life, if you don't know what kind of yarn to give them (although here's a hint: yarn lovers just flat out love yarn - all yarn!). Many knitters and crocheters keep these bars in their project bags so that their yarn smells extraordinary.
