Lavenders Black

The newest latest to hit the Black Bell Alley dept. of the website is Lavenders Black handmade soap.
Inspired by dark back alleys and underground pubs and inns.
Mysterious, dark-eyed men in top hats and tailcoats and shiny boots of leather!
Dark velvet drapes concealing a web of sin within.
An all natural scent created with lashings of Lavender, a lick of vetiver, a splash of juniper and spiked with spicy black pepper.
Something about the scent reminded me of 'Ooh La La' by Lush. A scent which I really like actually....the bubble bar in that scent is so good.
The soap is hard, lathers really well and leaves a nice subtle scent behind. One which is especially good for men so a perfect stocking filler for your spouse or nephew or brother or son or grandpa...anybody!
Or...for ladies who like a bit of masculinity in their scent should try this too.
I think we may bring out a perfume oil in this as well as grains & scrubs.

Just lovely, Tiggy! For some reason I think of Jimmy Hendrix when I look at this soap..must be the velvety purple flair
