Honey Mint Vanilla scent of that sugar scrub I'd bought. For the contest I suggested she make soap and each of her other products in that scent. This is the soap she came up with. The sugar scrub version was a very pretty pastel greenish-yellow, so I'd automatically envisioned a similar soap . . . pastel colors, maybe yellow and green and white. I'd forgotten that the vanilla content in the fragrance oils would turn the soap brown though. Kia wanted a design to avoid that so she did bolder green and black swirls. This is a cool looking bar, but reminds me of mint chocolate, and just doesn't seem to match the soft sweetness of the name or the pastel of the scrub.
Oh well! The scent is still divine! I think she said she tweaked it a bit for the soap but it still smells amazing to me. Described as 'Crisp and invigorating Peppermint tempered with sweet notes of golden Honey and creamy Vanilla,' this is a sweet mint scent. I think this soap is a little stronger and sharper on the mint than the scrub was, but it's still softened nicely by the vanilla and honey. It reminds me of the popular Jack Frost scent, but then, anything vanilla-mint reminds me of Jack Frost. lol
So even though this was my contest entry and I was excited to buy it, this is NOT what had me most excited to order. Ohhh no no noooo . . .
It looks like both of these are sold out already. I don't know if she'll make them again or if it was a one-time thing just for the contest. That's a bummer, but I hope she does more themed things like this in the future. Maybe I can get her to do a Hobbit soap, since that movie is FINALLY coming out later this year. Woot!
Petals Bath Boutique is going through some changes right now. She has opened her own website and will be trying to phase away from Etsy. She will eventually have most of her products available on her website, and only a few listed in the Etsy shop, just enough for people browsing Etsy to still find her. As I write this post though, it looks like Etsy is still the main source, so I will link to both . . .
