These two had me split right in the middle.
Fragrance #6 had a nice Coconut scent to it. It made me think of suntan lotion :). Definitely a warm, summer fragrance for me. But interestingly as I was soaping with it I detected a hint of masculine fragrance note to it.
Fragrance #7 just smelled like dirt to me...sorry. That's pretty plain way to describe :(
Both fragrances soaped very well. I decided to try the Tiger Stripes technique again with Fragrance #6 and it was really nice. No acceleration or ricing. This batched I did not gel. So far the fragrance is sticking pretty well. It's definitely a winner for me. Here is a pic:
I think the Tiger Stripes came out pretty cool. Much better that what I did with the Tiger Stripe Challenge recently :(.
Now Fragrance #7...I was trying to figure out what colors to use for this soap. It really did smell like dirt. Wet dirt...then I closed my eyes and concentrated, and then I started to detect faint scents of pine...and marsh...interesting. I started to recall memories of walking through Muir Woods Park after a rainy day. I smelled the wet dirt, grass and pines. Interesting...so I decided to used greens and browns for this soap. This is what I came up with:
The fragrance did very well. There was no acceleration or ricing. This one I gelled.
I have one more post to do about these fragrance experiences. I was able to save enough fragrance for each to do a test with just natural soap and no additives added. I am hoping to do that tomorrow night. I want to see if there is any change in color to the soap batter for each fragrance.
I also just soaped my Leopard Spots soap this evening, for the Leopard Soap Challenge. I can't wait to tell you all about that experience...It had me crying, laughing and sweating. :) Never a dull moment!!!
