Our fragrance soaps are scented with various combinations of fragrances. Some are scent combinations of essential oils or natural oils with synthetic fragrances, and others are combinations of derived fragrance oils into synthetically formulated fragrances.

Most fragrance oils are based on, or derived from, the essential oil they represent. Because of the production costs and/or the availability of certain essential oils, it sometimes becomes desirable to extend an essential oil with solvents or distilled spirits, to stretch or magnify its effect in a soap, or to combine an essential oil with synthetic oils or fragrances, to produce "fragrance oils." If essential oils or natural oils cannot be used at all, fragrances are sometimes achieved using entirely synthetic formulations to closely approximate the original essential oil.

We strive to provide our customers with an all-natural soap product containing only genuine essential oils as often as possible. However, in response to customer queries for particular scents, we have also developed many fragrance-scented soaps that could not be achieved with only organic, natural scenting ingredients.

Since these formulas are usually commercially patented, we are often unable to obtain complete proprietary information on their contents. In the interests of providing our customers with consumer disclosure, however, we have listed the contents or ingredients of every fragrance here to the fullest possible extent.

It is worth noting, for those concerned about using chemical or synthetic products, that the amount of fragrance oil required to scent a batch of soap is generally far less than the amount of essential oil required to achieve the same level of scent. This speaks to both the strength of synthetics, for better or for worse, and to the fact that there is less of it to be encountered, per bar of soap.

We have to admit, some of these fragrances are quite dynamic; we leave it to you to decide upon your individual preferences.


Soaps With Fragrances:

Almond Almond, rounded with a variety of subtle background citrus and floral scents.
 
Aloe Vera Fragrance of aloe vera laced with a blend of fruit and floral top notes, herbal-floral mid-tones, and spicy undernotes, resulting in a strong, fresh unisex scent.
 
Apricot Full fragrance of apricot, with supporting fragrances of black currant, orange, jasmine, rose and vanilla. Not too sweet-smelling; perfectly balanced.
 
Bavarian Air A blend of cypress, sage, armoise, lemon, juniper berry, eucalyptus, rosemary, lavender, lemongrass, sandalwood, and balsam fir. Based on the European 'Badedas'-type bathing formula.
 
Bayberry A "spicy, old-fashioned" traditional holiday-style bayberry fragrance.
 
Bay Rum Combined fragrances of bay and citrus. A true-to-the-original, time-honored classic.
 
Breeze A blend of clementine, bergamot, nectarine, freesia, water hyacinth, orchid, passion flower, rose, magnolia wood, ginger lily, and musk. The result is very fresh and potent.
 
Bubble Gum Experimental; a blend of proprietary fragrances that resemble old-fashioned bubble-gum, made for kids. Remaining stock has very little scent but bars are still fine for typical use. Discounted for close-out.
 
Christmas Spice A spicy blend of clove, cinnamon, cardamom, sweet vanilla, pimento with a hint of rose, strawberry, pineapple, green apple, and Balsam fir - a fresh-smelling, richly aromatic, luscious fragrance reminiscent of the Christmas Yuletide or holiday scents that many of us grew up with.  (Originally called Christmas Spirit.)
 
Coconut-Mounds Experimental; an aromatic blend of sweet chocolate and mellow, nutty coconut. Smells like a gourmet chocolate shop.
 
Country Clarity Contains numerous natural essential oils: peppermint, spearmint, lavender, clary sage and juniper berry. Also includes fragrances of laurel leaf, coriander, mandarin, menthol, amber, sandalwood, jasmine, clove, pine needle, and opoponax resin. Both calming and enlivening.
 
Echinacea Originally intended as a complement to echinacea herbal extract, this fragrance is actually a blended combination of blooming herbs and exotic floral fragrances: fresh-cut privet hedge, basil, heliotrope, geranium, lavender, jasmine, rose, lily of the valley, East Indian sandalwood, Yugoslavian oakmoss, and Atlas cedar.
 
Forest Glen A wonderful blend of spicy mountain pine, white violets, musk, patchouli, vanilla, cedarwood, and oakmoss. "The oakmoss here is the clincher, providing the earthy base note for this highly aromatic foresty-spicy scent. You will want to hold this soap (or whoever happens to be wearing its scent) close to your nose, over and over. We love this one," says our source.
 
Frankincense & Myrrh

A customized proprietary blend of seasonal scents and spices, our source describes this frankincense and myrrh fragrance as "...deep and smoky. Strong middle notes of frankincense and myrrh are enhanced by top notes of tolu balsam, peru balsam, and cinnamon and clove. Bottom notes of amber, musk, heliotrope, and vanilla provide a warm, exotic, and lasting drydown." The frankincense is "a fragrant gum resin exuded from the trunks and branches of the Boswellia tree," ... "Ancient, sweet, and balsamic"; the myrrh is the oleo resin of Myrrh gum that is harvested from the tree species Commiphora myrrha.

 
Gardenia "A strong, true gardenia" single-note fragrance.
 
Heather A subtle, but distinct wildflowers-with-heather fragrance.
 
Holiday Bouquet A blend of cedar, pine and balsam woods, with jasmine, lilac, fresh citrus and vanilla top notes - a delicately sweet, earthy scent. (This was initially called "Alpine Bouquet.")
 
Honeysuckle

Fragrance of honeysuckle, strong, fresh and sweet, supported by a subtle mix of floral, citrus, and earthy notes, resulting in a powerful hit of the true scent as when surrounded by the honeysuckle vine in full bloom.

 
Jasmine A strong, true single-note fragrance of jasmine .
 
Lilac A (very) strong, true lilac fragrance.
 
Lily of the Valley The fresh, strong, sweet true scent of lily amidst a proprietary blend of herbal and floral undernotes.
 
Magnolia Fragrance of magnolia, true and pungent - according to our source, "an innocent, intoxicating white floral..." and we agree.
 
New England Autumn Contains a primary scent of bergamot, augmented by clove, amber, and vanilla. Evocative of late autumn in the north country hills. Our source calls this "A very intense, warm, spicy" fragrance. One of our personal favorites.
 
Ocean Mist Contents unknown. "A fresh, pleasant unisex sea scent." Evokes the fresh scent of the incoming tidal spray and misty coastal air; mild yet alluring.
 
Peach A synthetic fragrance, amazingly true to actual peach scent; contents undisclosed by source. "Tart, sweet and juicy."
 
Riviera Holiday An "unforgettable, intoxicating... strong, complex floral blend." Contains union of rose, jasmine, gardenia, orange flower, sandalwood, patchouli, and chamomile.
 
Rose A very true rose fragrance. Derived from rose absolute, this is a single-note floral rose scent. "Imagine the scent from a hundred different roses in a country garden, wafting up to reach you on your balcony on a fresh summer's morning."
 
Sandalwood - Rose Our custom blend of the essential oil of sandalwood, with rose fragrance (see above). Spicy and aromatic - very nice!
 
Sandalwood - Vanilla A "balanced," mellow sandalwood-vanilla fragrance blend (additional contents not known).
 
Sea Spice A "rugged masculine salt-air" ocean scent, similar in nature to Bay Rum or Spicy Lime. Combined fragrances of fresh citrus, sea kelp, champagne, salt air, driftwood, musk, and a hint of Indonesian clove oil.
 
Snowy Delight An almost laundry-fresh, yet snowy-soft, musky spice and floral blend scented with Balsamic Musk, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Citrus, Carnation, Jasmine, Lily and Violet.
   
Strawberry A true, tempered (not-too-sweet) oil-derived strawberry fragrance.
 
White Tea & Ginger A very unusual, exotic blend: Chinese white tea, ginger, musk, nutmeg, and unidentified floral, citrus and wood scents.
