Appearances Can Be Deceiving


 

 
 
I am convinced that that Dingleberry soap I made last month is cursed. I made some soap balls out of the trimmings and decided to use them in my newest batch of The Seduction Soap, and they are literally popping out of the soap. I had to “glue” them back in with some clear M&P soap. The soap itself is scented in Black Vetiver Café-a Jo Malone duplication. By the way, Jo Malone is the truth! My favorite scent by her is Nectarine Blossom Honey, and Sweetcakes carries a dead-on replication of it. It might be time to do something with that scent too…
 


Anyhoo, I added some coconut milk powder to the mix, and I didn’t incorporate it very well as you can see by the speckles throughout. It does give the soap character-yeah, right...
 

This scent is very woodsy and incense-y. I don’t smell any “café” at all. I smell pure mystery and sophistication (if you asked me what mystery and sophistication smelled like.) It’s definitely a grown-up scent and for those who don’t like floral, food-y, or sweet scents. Your guy could definitely use this soap, but I haven't decided if I'm going to list it or not. One oops soap is okay, but soon, I'm going to have to create a new category: JACKED UP SOAPS. We've already got a Soap Queen. I don't want to be the Soap Jester...teehee...

Looks like a domino to me..lol. Can't smell it, but it looks good from here. Sometimes what you think is a mistake is someone else treasure. I have learned that in my line of work. Take a poll. Happy Wednesday!

Funny girl! Sounds like you came up with the perfect solution! From the sound of the fragrance, someone is going to want to snatch these up. :)

The scent sounds lovely and I think you should list it and see what happens.
