Spa Fusion Glitter Soap

I had the hardest time finding a fragrance that would match our Denim Blue Fragrance Oil. I scoured the catalog, perused our fragrance oil drawer and was about ready to tear my hair out! I was completely lost. There was no personal inspiration for using a particular fragrance with our Denim Blue Glitter. I went back through about an hour later hoping I had a fresh perspective.

With one hand full of perfume testing strips and the other holding a pencil, I took a sample of any fragrance that might possibly be acceptable. Then I went down to the warehouse to get some help and suggestions. Now most of our staff is female but for inspiration for this particular soap, I went to the males. They tend to give me a brutally point blank answer, just what I need when I can’t make up my mind. LOL.  They are so wonderful for putting up with me and my pestering. :-D Their pick was Spa Fusion. Wow! That kind of surprised me. However, I listened because I not think of anything better. Can you think of something that would be great with our Denim Blue Glitter? All suggestions for fragrances to go with the Denim Blue glitter get a free sample of glitter! How cool is that? Come join me in the kitchen for this fun soap with a story.

  1. Well, my choice may be all too obvious but Crystal Blue was the fragrance that immediately popped in my head. :D

  2. It’s funny that you mention that you couldn’t think of a scent- I saw the blue in the picture before I’d read your post and thought “that looks ‘oceany’! That would go so well with a good strong amount of Crystal Blue!” LOVE that fragrance. :-)

    You said that it volcanoed though… sorry about that! What do you think was the problem?

  3. A blue soap reminds me of masculine or watery/fresh scents. Maybe Bay Rum, Jasper, Emmett, Carlisle, Cool Water, Crystal Blue, or Ocean Rain. The Spa Mint Medley might work, too. Red Grape & Blueberry is a different option and a little more appropriate for soap with glitter in it, I think. My favorite ideas though are Snow Drops, because blue seems cool and icy and a mixture of Coconut and Cotton Candy. It makes me think of a mix of a blue coconut snow cone and blue cotton candy. And both would fit just fine with glitter.

  4. I think the volcano happened because making soap is so addicting that we sometimes forget to allow the mixture to cool at all! Blog photo sessions are the craziest soap making time. WHERE DID MY SPOON GO?!?!
