Scent: A fruity and floral blend enhanced by hints of sugary sweet notes at the base. It's sweet but not overly so and is a fragrance that will be enjoyed by both men and women. Top notes of blackberry and apple are complemented by middle floral notes with melon and sugar at the bottom.
*VERY LIMITED EDITION*
Ally was made for the January Soap Challenge Club where we first designed a "canvas" upon which to pour fluid soap from a dustpan, much like fluid paint pours. I chose to pour very thin layers in rainbow colors for the canvas, then filled in the dustpan with alternating black and white batter interspersed with gold mica in oil. It's a fun, abstract design that I enjoyed more than I thought I would.
This month's challenge was completely blind. That meant that we were not to share anything on any social media prior to the winner announcements. Normally participants will share first attempts and final submissions as they work on them.
I've cut some of the largest bars into 2 smaller, guest-sized soaps.

A note about handmade soap: Each bar is handmade, hand cut, and no two are exactly alike. Your bar will last longer if kept dry between uses. Place your bar on a well-draining soap dish out of the spray of water for best performance. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. Soaps are for external use only and are not edible. You may experience colored lather with dark or brightly colored bars. I have not experienced any staining nor have my testers, but your mileage may vary ;-)
