I see something and "Pow!" "well that will look really nice at home" and off to the register I go...
Now my impulse buying has migrated over to fragrances. I browse the online stores and I am amazed at all the possibilities. Just like when you walk into a restaurant and you look at the extensive menu and you just can't decide. Except that I decide, and sometimes failing todouble check on the "ingredients".
Just recently I started my spring shopping...I purchased some florals, some fruity and a couple of clean scents. One of the scents I picked up is called "Hidden Fantasy"
this is the vendor's description:
Fresh citrus and hints of wild cherry intertwine with fresh ozone notes to accent the floral heart of this fragrance. Tropical ylang ylang balance with sensual jasmine and hints of rose to form a rich floral accord which is surrounded with green leafy accents. Cashmere musk undertones are sweetened with vanilla amber to create a dramatic finish for this fragrance.
Well that sounded pretty good to me. I have also been admiring all these delicate color schemes. Simple white and off whites with a dash of color. Well I was envisioning white and pink....creamy white and delicate pink...and this was how to top turned out :
Well I was so excited. Just what I was looking for. I could not wait till it was ready to unmold and cut....
Well a few days later as they were sitting on the cutting rack I noticed a very alarming transformation. My delicate soap was starting to change!!! Gone was the delicate cream and pretty pink. I was now starting to see this:
What I neglected to plan on was the vanilla content of this fragrance. I also did not check on the vendors website to confirm any color change. I went back to the vendors page and there it was:
|Soap (Cold Process Results)||Slight acceleration. Discolors to a tan. Scent strength is good. Soaps beautifully!|
Cashmere musk undertones are sweetened with vanilla amber to create a dramatic finish for this fragrance.
Well, here I sit with my dirty looking soap, learning a new lesson. Do you fragrance research! :(
Thanks for checking out my blog!
