I love the new allergen-free fragrances that I will be using this year! They arrived last week and I have made a couple of batches using them. My favourites are the Sweet Milk and the Sweet Lavender, I just cannot stop smelling the soaps that I have made using them. I also adore the Hazelnut and Honey, it discolours the soap, but the resulting shade is lovely and suitable for the fragrance. My fiance even likes that one, he thinks it smells like freshly baked shortbread, and he usually does not have much interest in smelling the soaps. The floral blends that I have chosen are delicate and very pleasant and I am really looking forward to using them all for my flowery soaps. I have chosen to use Vanilla Sugar for a set of Victorian Cakes for my Etsy shop, the cakes naturally turn a lovely creamy brown and I dust them with shimmery pearl, just to accentuate the tiny details. I will be starting to make a few more guest soap designs next week-pictures will follow!
