Hi everyone. The first run of this soap proved pretty popular so I made another 20-soap batch. I've had several people comment that this scent was different than what they expected, but in a good way. After all "Lavender Vanilla" does have a Bath & Body Works sound to it. This scent isn't that.
The sweet lavender is balanced out by sharp cedar and spicy coriander. With bergamot at the top and tonka/vanilla at the base its a well-rounded, rich, and natural scent. The scent is mainly EO, with tonka bean as the only synthetic component.
Formula 20.1C: This formula has proven to be a winner in lather quality, slickness and post shave. It performs as well, if not better, than the 17.x but is easier to lather and far less thirsty.
