Let's talk soap. Quite simply - this is my favourite soap and I haven't found another that can come even remotely close. They are Roger and Gallet Carnation soaps and I did want to show you the wonderful box they came in but alas I cannot find it (though I have just found this - a picture from Amazon fancy being able to buy soap from Amazon; I never knew you could!) and double 'alas' again because this is my last one. Such a shame.
Their scent is strong, like an exaggerated version of the sweet but spicy fragrance of Garden Pinks, and oh so good. The soaps themselves are large and hard so they last a very long time and will also scent the room. I don't keep mine in the glass jar in the bathroom either; but in my underwear bag (no drawers for me..no pun intended!) or linen cupboard (which doesn't look anything like this now, not at all, it's so, so messy. Very, very much.)
My mother has always used them and I originally bought my first bar many years ago because I was missing her in what ever part of the world I was in, and knew the scent would bring her close. I'm hoping that Lucy and Alice might carry on the tradition, but we'll see.
And because I so enjoyed hearing about your favourite candles (and discovering new ones) - can you humour me once more and now tell me about your favourite soaps. .oh, and of course where you keep them!?
