Scents We Love…


Okay…I’ve been making soap for a long, long time. Because I was working at a really good job when I started making soap, I was fortunate to purchase and test several fragrance oils from different manufacturers without the cost being an issue (oh how times have changed!)

The great thing is this afforded me to find the very best scents – like the New Hampshire Lilac soap above. Everyone that sniffs it says it’s a dead-on lilac scent, and I agree. It’s light and ephemeral like the spring blossom, but it doesn’t have some weird chemical overtones some soaps have. Plus, I am a big believer in using high quality oils, so in the end I actually use less oil and have better fragrance. It’s one of Hemlock Springs Soaps‘ best selling soaps. And lotions. And perfume. 🙂

Cheers –

  1. I hear you on that one. It’s so important that a scent be *right*. The supplier market is anything but static…it’s so important that you found — and can keep getting — high quality scents. Happy for you, even 2 years later!
