Growing up, we had lots of fruit trees in our backyard - peaches, apples, even red grapes!

This was amazing to us, since our house sat right on the water - a little inlet off Narragansett Bay named Warwick Cove (and my Mom‘s still there). We always thought our land would be too highly saturated with salt water to sustain much growth, but we had lots of trees, bushes, flowers, plenty of weeds and our gardens usually did pretty well.

The biggest and the best fruit tree we had, though, was a huge wild blackberry bush! We‘d be so excited as we would check and check to see if they were ripe yet! And when they finally were, it somehow always caught us by surprise, so we’d stretch the bottom of our t-shirts out, making a cotton ‘bowl’ out of it and fill it with as many juicy berries as we could possibly fit!

Of course, the problem with this method of berry-picking was the big purple stains that inevitably covered our fingers - and the front our T-Shirts! We didn’t care, but my Mom would give a big groan and then an even bigger sigh when she saw us coming in the house with the first blackberries of the season!

And it was worth the scolding - they smelled and tasted delicious! So I’ve chosen Blackberry Grapefruit for the scent for Soap #24.

And here’s the description:

Bellissima Triple Milk Blend Soap in Blackberry Grapefruit

Our amazing Triple Milk Blend Soap in Blackberry Grapefruit is incredibly creamy and full of lather with our triple blend of protein-rich milk (goat, cow & coconut) and luxurious all-veggie oils like olive, high-oleic sunflower seed and rice bran to leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated.

Blackberry Grapefruit delivers the aroma of tart wild blackberries and tangy grapefruit - and that’s just the beginning of this wonderfully complex fragrance! Sweet mint, herbal sage, citrus-y lemon, fresh greens, spicy vanilla and tropical floral notes elevate this to a most sophisticated, fruity fragrance!

  1. I always wanted a peach tree in my backyard! We had an apple tree but it didn't produce good ones. This sounds like it would smell delicious! I just loved to go blackberry picking as a kid and I would come home all scratched up (I'd get in the middle of the patch if I could) but it was worth it!

  2. omg blackberry AND grapefruit? WANT!
