I was thinking about this in the shower the other day. I have a morning soap, a fabulous peppermint from Clover Hollow; a bedtime lavender blend from The Soap Addict; and a variety of others from different soapmakers. I realized I have a soap wardrobe. Much like my perfumes and clothes, I pick the scented (or unscented) soap that matches my mood that day.
Interestingly enough, I talked about this with several others over the weekend and they came to the same realization. With all the handmade soap available these days, why would you ever use a store bought bar?
There’s something for everyone, including the men. Hedge Wizards has a wonderful line of men’s shaving soaps. But it doesn’t stop there, just like men have more than one cologne, same goes for soaps. Soap is no longer just a utilitarian bath product.
There are so many moods and events that can be coordinated with soaps, imagine – married date night, single date night, first date, wedding…just like there’s a scent memory for every occasion, now there’s a soap for those same occasions. Do you have a soap wardrobe?
