Sleigh Ride Handcrafted Soap for Men

"Sleigh Ride" is one of the fragrances from New Directions that I receieved for the more masculine soaps I made this year and I love it!  Their description of the scent includes top notes of eucalyptus, citrus, ozone floral with nuances of strawberry. Floral mid notes of cinnamon, carnation and tuberose blend into a warm base of cedar, violet, balsam, powder and musk.  It may be just be me but when I smell it I am reminded of my grandpas sweet pipe tobacco.
Inspired by the name of the fragrance, I designed this soap in a white base (snow) and added a pencil line of activated charcoal (for the shadows that you would see on a moonlit stroll through the woods)and added a sharp peaked top that shimmer with white glitter (to represent the shimmery snow caps in the moonlight) . This soap is a treat for all your senses. What do you think?

Peppermint Fudge Hot Process Soap

Always a hit with the crowd. Chocolate brownie batter with a hint of peppermint, trust me when I say this, they smell good enough to eat. This luxurious hot processes soap bar is made up of real cocoa and coffee and is enhanced with cocoa butter, peppermint essential oil and is dotted with gold jojoba pockets of vitamin E for some extra skin loving qualities.  These bars were cut to weigh aprox. 4 - 4.5 oz each
