FRAGRANCE OIL DESCRIPTIONS:

Beau Brummel: Tobacco and black tea are the dominate notes with hints of fruit and spice. Many people have commented that they notice a somewhat powdery scent at first. This fragrance is heady and masculine.

 

 

Blood Orange (R&C FAVORITE): Blood oranges have a different fragrance versus Valencia or Navel oranges that we tend to get from the markets. Considered by many to be the most antidepressant of the citrus oils, Blood Orange has a bright yet warm, tangy, fresh, uplifting scent and is perfect for both men and women.

 

Crisp Cotton: This complex, super clean scent is a combination of Juicy Blood Orange, Sea Berry and Passionfruit notes, laced with Raspberry, Starfruit and Rosewater; and underscored by Violet Leaf, Thyme and Musk. It is crisp, refreshing, and oh so fresh...think, Fresh Linens!

 

 

Dragon’s Blood: This sensual, deep and exotic blend carries warming notes of amber, incense, Madagascar vanilla and patchouli lightened up with layers of romantic notes such as rose, jasmine and lilac.

 

 

English Rose: This rose smells like an English rose garden. Not as deep as other roses, this is a true, light rose that adds a nice round rose smell to your soap. One of our customers loves this rose so much she wrote, "This is the best rose I have ever smelled and I give yours an A++++."

 

 

Espresso (R&C FAVORITE): This comforting and familiar scent smells just like the aroma you experience when walking into your favorite Coffee house...coffee & biscotti as well as a tad bit like Bailey's! The opening notes are of bitter-sweet chocolate, coconut, and almond. Middle notes of honey and caramel while finishing off with notes of roasted coffee bean and burnt sugar.

 

Grass Stain: This scent is fresh, clean and vibrant. It's a single note fragrance smelling of, quite simply...fresh cut grass!

 

 

 

Honey (Pure): The feeling of warmth, pure warmth!  This fragrance is oh so sweet and delicious! It is a true, rich and sticky honey scent, rounded out with delicate notes of jasmine, rose and peach tea. Base notes of spun sugar and coumarin bring depth to the blend.

 

 

Lavender & Cedar: This unisex fragrance has bold aromatic notes of cedarwood with crushed pine tips and lavender buds. This is a great fragrance for all year round but this is also the perfect fragrance if you're looking to bring a bit of the outdoors in during the winter and fall months!

 

 

Lavender and Herbs: A twist on the traditional lavender, this fragrance oil is really special! Why? Well, it has notes of Italian Bergamot, Eucalyptus, Citrus Zests (more bitter than traditional citrus notes), Lily of the Valley and of course, French Lavender. With supporting notes of Clary Sage, Nordic Pine, Cool Camphor and Clove Buds!

 

Lemon Extract: Fresh cut lemons!

 

 

 

Patchouli: Musky, earthy. Romantic, soothing, stimulating.

 

 

 

Pinot Grigio (R&C FAVORITE): The main notes to make up this fruity wine scent are sparkling bergamot, peach nectar, apple, Italian white grape, black plum, violet rounding out with supporting notes of warm clove bud. It smells like a very adult, fruity floral grape juice.

 

 

Serenity: Lavender is the top note in this mild fragrance.

Lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, citrus x limon (lemon) oil, citrus reticulata (mandarin orange) oil, citrus x aurantium (petitgrain) oil, rosa centifolia (rose) absolute, citrus x aurantium (neroli) oil.

 

 

Tranquility: This has more of a Rosemary/Lavender top note. Blended with lavender, balsam fir needle, patchouli, palmarosa, geranium and Roman chamomile. Relaxes the body, quiets the mind and soothes the spirits.

 

 

FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions)

 

What is an Exfoliant?

Any substance (chemical or natural) designed to remove/lift dead skin cells from the surface of the body,

revealing fresh, more supple, new skin. This is especially important for the skin to accept/absorb nutrient's and moisturizing!

 

What does Handcrafted Mean and Why Is It More Pricey?

As loosely defined by SoapGuild: "Handcrafted" is the processes of making and selling soap which is complex and involves many steps. These include creating the recipe; measuring and mixing; adding scent and color; creating the shape by molding, cutting and/or trimming; selecting containers and closures, designing and creating packaging; as well as marketing, displaying and selling the final product. Depending on the methodology of the individual, some of these steps are done “by hand” through creative and artistic expression of a pre-fabricated base or all of these steps are done “by hand” beginning with the raw ingredients.

 

What Does Humectant Mean?

A substance (mainly Glycerin) which retains, preserves and draws moisture (from the air)!
