Deck The Halls aka I'm Crazy for Christmas!

Yep, it's true... I'm nuts about Christmas and I know it's unfeasibly early to be thinking of it but, as I said in my previous post, when you have to work 6 - 8 weeks ahead, you need to start thinking about Christmas stock in September.

So this is the second in our Autmn/Winter Collection and it's called Deck the Halls.  It's unashamedly Christmassy with it's colours and scent and I make no apologies for it!!

Its made with our best selling formula of Sweet Almond & Golden Olive Oils with tons of creamy Cocoa Butter plus Yogurt, Goatsmilk & Buttermilk for their vitamins and minerals and White Kaolin Clay (to help clarify even the most sensitive of skins) and Pure Silk... just cos I love it and it really makes the soap more silky and wonderful.

The fragrance is a rich, festive aroma opening with fig slightly sweetened with warm blackberry, clove and peppery notes resting on a woody backdrop, enriched by aromatic notes of cedarwood, raspberry and sultana. And oh boy, it's soooooooooooooooo lovely. 

I've coloured it with traditional Christmas tones of gold, red and green and used the Celine Swirl and textured tops glistening with cosmetic glitter.
