One of the new fragrances that I receive is called Kimono Flower. The vendors description of this fragrance:
"... mandarin and bergamot blended with soft jasmine petals and juicy raspberry; the heart is ylang ylang, sweet gardenia, and pink orchid; the base is rounded out with nuances of white moss, creamy amber, and vetiver"
I am a little hit or miss with "perfume" kind of fragrance oils. Some can be pretty strong for me and others are too light. This one hit the mark, and its one of the first time that I have thought about doing a perfume. I really like it.
I have also started to browse the internet for color inspiration. I find myself getting stuck with the same color scheme over and over again...partly I think because I only have a small selection of Micas to work with. I am dying to buy some more but my budget for soaping is a little tight this month.
I went online and saw this and fell in love with it...
My reality turned out like this...
Yes...I need a little MORE work with my colors :)
I used powered Buttermilk and as much as I tried to prevent gel it still had some gelling in the middle. The fragrance worked really well...it did start setting on me a little faster than I wanted to and my swirls were not as fluid as I wanted.
Thanks for checking out my blog!
