This soap is a new test run using a paraben and phthalate free fragrance (per many customer requests for these types of scents). It uses one of my favorite, nourishing, lather -rich base recipes. This soap includes the use of natural colorants for a gentle, beneficial, cleansing action and aesthetically pleasing patterns of color. The scent is deep, soft and sensual, including many natural notes (some that are often difficult to achieve with essential oils such as: rose and violet). The manufacturer of the scent combines the use of natural essential oils that provide a depth without an overpowering, synthetic fragrance. Truly done well and a pleasant scent that I am happy to try out!
