Vintage Patchouli Handmade Artisan Silk Soap

More soap pics! As promised, this is my new Vintage Patchouli soap - made with my normal blend of Sweet Almond, Golden Olive, Avocado, Coconut, Palm (sustainable source of course) and Castor Oil with lots of Cocoa Butter.  As always, I added wild silk to the mix - I just love what this brings to the party, such silky smoothness.

The fragrance is described as a sensual blend of patchouli, bergamot & white flowers on an intense base of woody incense - to this, I added additional Patchouli essential oil as I love love love it.  The fragrance smells clean yet deep and dark, perfumed and mysterious, a fragrance that makes you think of long held secrets

The style, as I said in a previous post, comes from my spending probably far too much time looking at vintage styled decor photographs... when I sniffed the fragrance, those images just popped into my head and the colours just felt so right to me.  I loved the muted colours, soft but there's something mysterious to them too.  Or maybe that's just me?!

So, here are images of my Vintage Patchouli Handmade Artisan Silk Soap...


  1. Lovely and the scent sounds divine.


  2. I've said it before and I'll say it again, stunning! Simply stunning!

  3. Thanks so much! Something about this fragrance.. not sure what it is but it's like its possessed me, even the soap was telling me what colours to use! Maybe I'm sniffing too much lye LOL
