Off the Curing Rack!

After 4 weeks of curing the verdict is in!
I soaped with Cucumber Melon and White Tea & Ginger,
both scents are from Wholesale Plus.
First is Cucumber Melon.  WSP describes this as an aroma of sweet and sour cucumber and a deep oily green note with hints of violet, with a background of sweet, freshly sliced honeydew melon.  I loved this scent when I first cut it but after 4 weeks the scent has faded.  Still a lovely delicate scent of cucumber and melon, just wish it had stayed alittle bit stronger.  I soaped this at 1 ounce per pound of soap.

The next is my favorite, White Tea & Ginger.
Described as top notes of white tea, yuzu, lemon, bergamot and ginger, followed by middle notes of Earl Grey Tea, rose, nutmeg, and geranium, sitting on base notes of woods, musk and berries.  I really don't quite understand all the top, middle, and bottom notes thing but I know what I like and this smells amazing!  Still nice and strong after 4 weeks.....I soaped at 1 ounce per pound of soap on this one also.

And this is the way they are packaged on my Etsy site.



  1. Both look great but I especially like the colors of the White Tea and Ginger, and it sounds like my type of scent. :-)

  2. Both soaps are gorgeous, Gloria, and I especially like the vivid colors of the White Tea & Ginger. Your packaging is so pretty, too!

  3. Wow!!! The green in the White Tea and Ginger is so striking! I love it without even having to sniff it! :) And the Cucumber Melon looks just like its name--I hope the scent comes back.
