I'd Rather Smell Like An Onion Bagel Than Use A Detergent Bar Soap

Yes, that really is the name of my newest soap. I was listening to Fall Out Boy, and you know how they have those hysterical song titles that don't really sound like song titles? Well, this soap name is in the same vein. Okay, not really, but it's more attention-grabbing than Ocean Breeze Soap (no offense to anyone with a soap with this name, but you know how I roll!)

The real inspiration behind this soap is the scent-why that's a novel idea, huh? Seriously, this scent reminds me of Coast, Zest, and Irish Spring-the blue one, not the green one. BUT, those "soaps" make your skin feel tight and itchy-well that's what they do to my skin, at least. I've noticed that since I've been exclusively using handmade soap, I don't need as much moisturizer-seriously-and my skin is a human ash tray.



Don't ask me about the design of this soap-it's fucked jacked up. I was trying to do that Mantra Swirl-you know the one that one the Saponifier "best in swirl" contest, and it didn't quite pan out. I didn't CPOP this one so it's going to take forever to cure. That's okay because I am making so much soap right now...

I'd rather smell like an onion bagel too! Those common, well-liked bars are evil! Handmade soap rocks!

I looove the way this one looks, Patrice! Very unique and original. I've not seen many side by side layers...mostly top on bottom ;)

I like the colors in this soap and I bet it smells terrific! I like that crisp smell in the morning because it wakes me up.

Patrice, este jabón es muy bonito y estoy de acuerdo contigo, que usando jabón natural todos los días la piel está hidratada y suave sin necesidad de crema, eso lo sabemos bien quienes los usamos.

I'll bet it smells awesome! I have never been a fan of commercially made soaps. I always used body wash, until I discovered handmade CP soaps, that is! Now, I'm addicted to the handmade soaps.

Thanks for the positive feedback:)

I'm going to try this swirl again. A good soap friend of mine just gave me some great tips! Stay tuned...

Hey, if you slice the soap horizontally instead of vertically, you might get a better effect from the mantra swirl. I tried it once and it turned out GREAT, the second time not so much. I think they look pretty cool anyway!
