Let’s talk about soap fragrances!
I’ve taken a good hard look at my soap fragrances, and am sort of staggered at how many I offer! Some of my favorites (Frankincense & Myrrh, Orange Clove) are great, but haven’t sold very well for me throughout the year. That and my stint this week prepping for holiday soaps made me start thinking that perhaps I need to evaluate seasonality. So I’ve divided my fragrances up into “regular” and “seasonal.”
|A Pirate’s Life||Fresh Cut Grass||Oatmeal, Milk & Honey|
|Ancient Sedona||Fresh Linens||Pa’s Smokehouse|
|Apple||Fresh Zucchini Flower||Patchouli|
|Basil||Freshly Mown Hay||Pumpkin Lager|
|Basmati Rice||Hazelnut||Rain on the Down|
|Black Amber & Lavender||Honey Ale||Rosemary Mint|
|Brown Sugar||Lavender||Sandalwood Vanilla|
|Buttercream & Snickerdoodle||Lavender Lemon||Sea Breeze|
|Caipirinha||Lavender Patchouli||Spiced Mahogany|
|Cinnamon Toast||Lost in the Woods||Teak & Sandalwood|
|Cocoa Butter||Maple Sugar||Tropical Vacation|
|Coconut Lemongrass||Maple Syrup||Vanilla|
|Columbian Coffee||Maple Walnut Fudge||Vanilla Maple Pecan|
|Marie’s Hearth||Warrior’s Heart|
|Cucumber Melon||Monkey Farts||Wasabi|
|Cucumber Mint||Mysore Sandalwood||Wood Violet & Maple|
|English Ivy||Nag Champa||Woodberry|
|Fresh Baked Bread||Oatmeal Stout||Woodsmoke|
If any of these fragrances look new to you, you’re not nuts — I’ve ordered some fragrances and am just waiting on getting a shipment of soap base before making them (I needed to use what I had to get started on the Halloween soap). Also, some of them are used as ingredients in other fragrances (Campfire, Brown Sugar) and won’t be used just on their own, barring any custom orders.
|Autumn Harvest||Frankincense & Myrrh||Pumpkin Pecan Cake|
|Candy Corn||Forest Pine||Pumpkin Spice|
|Chocolate||Gift of the Magi||Victorian Christmas|
|Chocolate Mint||Gingerbread||Winter Cheer|
|Country Christmas||Gingersnap||Winter Holiday Wreath|
And I’m waffling on adding Woodsmoke to that.
Now, if one of these seasonal fragrances is your favorite, I’m never going to tell you “no” if you want a custom order! But for the most part, these will disappear around January and not reappear again until this time next year. Halloween soaps will start appearing in late July/early August, Thanksgiving soaps will appear in late August/early September, and Hanukkah and Christmas soaps will start showing up around late September/early October.

Autumn Harvest and Pumpkin Spice will definitely see orders from me this fall! 🙂
That gives me an idea, btw, about writing a blog post describing the differences in the fragrances — I mean, “Cranberry” is pretty obvious, but… “Gift of the Magi”…? Does that smell like hair and pocket watches?
Er, edited to add this, in case that was too obscure…
I really love the smell of hair and pocket watches, so count me in for a bar. 😛
I want a hundred of everything that smells like Rosemary & Mint. I have Suave shampoo in that smell and I’ve been looking all over for soap to match it.
