The much anticipated Jane Eyre soap is on the curing rack! A gorgeously complex blend of bergamot, pine and wild violets with hints of tangerine, neroli, green moss, florals of heather, hyacinth and jasmine and a touch of pear and chamomile. Base notes of fall leaves and Mr. Rochester's cigar make this an intriguing scent.
I'm tentatively calling the new Jane Eyre-inspired fragrance Thornfield. A number of you suggested it so those that did will be getting a free bar! (I'll email you soon). I truly appreciate those that took the time to respond to my quest for a name.
On to make the companion products in this fragrance. I'll keep you posted :-)

Our hotel was near ground zero and so was this sign. It was four times as long as this pic. Eye opening.Mine Until Morning, along with a bar of soap and solid perfume inspired by the book. Kasey was the winner! Congrats Kasey :-) I've notified her and she'll be getting her Latherati package soon. I hope she loves it. I have a couple more bars left and a number of signed books so I'll be coming up with ideas for giveaways soon.
My latest tattoo..."Find your strength". It was the right time recently for me to get a new tattoo and this was exactly the phrase I needed. I feel that when you have a struggle in your life, whether it be about love, friends, family, work, etc., you need to dig down deep and find a strength you didn't know you had to get through it. The human spirit is incredibly resilient and I'm learning that finding that strength is empowering and you come out a stronger person for it. Hope it inspires you to get through whatever challenge you may be facing.
Just noted: Nothing too work-related in this post. But I have news I'll share soon!
