I’m not waiting til the last minute like I always do to start crafting my holiday offerings. I will have 3 official holiday soaps this year. I usually only do one, but these soaps will carry you into the Kwanzaa season and beyond! For this one, I deviated from the traditional holiday scents like sugar cookie or , or basically anything with vanilla in it and decided to go darker., , and
First up is Nicety. It’s part naughty and part nice. There was also a song back in the day called Nicety. Whatever happened to Michel’le? Oh well, I digress (when don’t I digress…) I wanted Nicety to be “sooty” not entirely black, but I had a heavy hand with the black oxide. I should have only used a pinch instead of 3! You can barely see the poppy seeds in the body of the soap, so I compensated by sprinkling little sooty balls on top. The soap is scented in a blend of sweet orange and patchouli (love this combo-the ultimate naughty meets nice) with a little hint of fir needle to give it an unexpected “Hmmmm” factor. No, this soap doesn’t smell like a fir tree. It smells like a nice romp in the woods with someone you don’t mind getting naughty with..
