Q & A

A soap scents question again - do you like your scents really strong (as in you smell it when you walk in the bathroom and it lingers on your hands/body) or do you like your scents mild (you smell it when you wash with a slight scent left on your skin, but it doesn’t smell strongly until you wet it)? We are making our soaps - and the Creamsicle scent smells like Push-ups!

    • Also, please check out the website and let me know any suggestions. Scent wise, or otherwise. Our spa in the boxes have been great hits, and we are almost sold out. I am most curious about soap scents though. Those are the ones that we have to make large batches of, and I don’t want to have lots of inventory. I already have to order more salt/scrub containers! Also, if you’d be interested in masques...we haven’t ventured into those but I’ll probably go that route before lotions.

      And Cynthia, I am liking the island flower smells! Not too keen on Love-Spell so I will probably wait to make that one. But the Mochalata is incredibly edible smelling! I can’t wait to send you a sample of that one! :)

    • I like my scents strong. But then my husband calls me the Clorox Queen because I clean everything with bleach. I even like my floor cleaner to be so strong that I can come back into the  room an hour or two after mopping and I still smell the cleaner.

    • Dee Dee you and I were writing at the same time and your post came up first. lol

      I’m glad you like the island smell. Tropical flowers seem to make people happy.

    • I thought it was strange since I typically don’t like flowery perfumes. I also liked the Rose, Lilac, AND Lavender Fleur I ordered. I typically hate Lavender so all of those suprised me!

    • I don’t wear much in the way of fragrances because I’m allergic to so much, so I do appreciate cleansers and hair products with a ‘lingering’ scent.

      Now, that being said, I wouldn’t want to smell like a push-up pop, lol. Woodsy or clean smells, but I wouldn’t want to smell food-y.  

      Others probably have different preferences.

    • LOL Heather, me either! Someone (Vikki I think) asked for a soap that smelled like push-ups. So, aiming to please, I ordered the scent. We may make a very small batch of that fragranceestatic since I am not sure how popular it will be. I am sure my kids will like it though!

    • That might actually be a good kids’ scent, Dee Dee! Maybe market it as such as see how it goes?

    • I prefer a soft and subtle scent. I love white Dove soap. It just leaves enough of a scent to let you know you are clean.

    • Leadinlady, Dove white is my choice because it doesn’t irritate the oh-so-sensitive girly parts.  But, otherwise, I prefer strong shower gels that I use with my daily loofah.

    • Robin,
      Goat milk soap is so much milder. Doesn’t irritate any parts, girly, baby, or otherwise. :) No preservatives. No colorants (unless they‘re special ordered.) Sometimes we even whip it so it floats like Ivory. Goat milk soap is usually a light cream to a cocoa brown, depending on what oils and additives are used. We just made some that would have made a great chocolate soap! LOL We added honey and the chemical reaction turned it hot chocolate brown. If I’d had my Mochalata scent, it woudl have made some lovely soap. As it is, we‘re keeping it for home use. hehehe

    • The white dove soap ONLY for the girly parts for me too. Thanks Robin for the right words. lol
      Any scent that is too strong is like having too much of a good thing. lol   I like vanilla and coconut a lot.

    • Dee Dee, too bad you can’t  use Emu Oil. It is wonderful for the skin.  It helps strengthen the skin. It is great for the elderly in that it does help strengthen and thicken the skin. You know how they bruise so easily,etc.? We certainly could benefit from it... starting now...before our skin gets thin. lol

    • I can use Emu oil, but haven’t purchased any because of cost. We use sweet almond, jojoba, coconut, olive, and several others as our base oils. I add cocoa butter and shea to superfat them. I might try an emu oil. We also use avocado oil in small amounts.
      Robin, the website is www.hannahmadesoaps.blogspot.com - but we can custom make different scents. I have a really nice warm vanilla that I love. It has a hint of coconut and musk.

    • Well we made some of the Creamsicle scent. In the bottle it is way to strong to think it would smell good in soap, but I really like it!
      I think I am going to do something similar to what Lucinda did and send out samples. But, I will do it a bit differently in that I’ll let people pick the scents they want to try. And as a reward for their input I’ll offer a 10 percent discount for a future order. Anybody game?
