Ciento is curing


A new Latherati soap is on the curing rack! Inspired by One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Ciento is a blend of bananas, smoky almonds and the surprise zing of peppermint! Sounds strange, I know, but one thing I've learned blending fragrances...don't be afraid to try something odd, it just might work...and this works.

Thought you might also enjoy this snapshot of a flower (what is it???) that my neighbor has in her garden. It's the most delicious dark plum color.

Now, I could use your opinion: In trying to find the perfect name for Jane Austen's Mansfield Park soap, I found the word "milquetoast" - definition: a timid, unassertive person, easily intimidated. I thought this the perfect description of Fanny Price but am wondering if it's too odd a word. Your thoughts?
