The Lather Project: 30 Soaps in 30 Days - Day 21, Soap 21

It’s Day 21!

Three weeks down, only 9 more soaps to go! And to put it in different terms, over 60 lbs of soap down and almost 30 more to go!

For Soap #21, I wanted another masculine scent for Father’s Day. I’m not so sure this one succeeds as a manly man’s soap, but the scent reminds me a bit of those commercial ‘deodorant’ soaps, so it should appeal to men who like Irish Spring!

I had acquired this Fragrance Oil at the beginning of the year, and have been using it to scent my homemade liquid laundry detergent - yes, it smells that fresh and clean! And yesterday I went back to the supplier’s site that I bought it from to get a peek at the fragrance description, and it’s been discontinued.

This happens all the time, so I’m not terribly surprised, just s bit disappointed. I have a full pound of it, so I’m not likely to run out of it anytime soon, but I can’t access a description for the scent. It’s been completely eliminated from the website as if it never even existed! I always go back to the supplier for the manufacturers’s scent description so that I have all the elements of the fragrance correct, and then add my own take on it. So I really felt at a loss on this one….

However - I absolutely stunned myself by doing something with amazing forethought and unbelievable organization and planning. Back when I first started buying fragrance oils, I wanted to document my initial sense and thoughts on each one as they came in. I actually made a list and wrote down my impressions of - and renamed as I saw fit - every fragrance oil I’ve ever bought!

I had stopped doing it a few purchases back - but believe me, I’ll be continuing this practice religiously now that I realize how important it is and how being able to refer back to the list comes in extremely handy!

So, here’s the description for Soap #21:
