Gardenia Tuberose Soap from Santa Barbara Aromatics

Remember a few weeks ago when I had the opportunity to try the Montecito Candle from Santa Barbara Aromatics? (If you missed it, click here!)

Well, thanks to generous shop owner, Seana, I also got to test drive her amazing Gardenia and Tuberose scented soap!

The soap arrived impeccably packed, wrapped in a cello bag and placed in a pretty organza bag tied with a tag. I love it when artisans use wrapping that can be re-used. It is good for the environment and makes me extra happy!

The soap is a luscious buttery-yellow color and features a little bit of golden shimmer to give it that extra special and glamorous touch.

The scent of this bar is intoxicating -- it filled my entire bathroom with the glorious fragrance of gardenia and tuberose. The fragrance transported me to a field of fresh dewy flowers. If Spring had a smell, this would be it! I even found myself smelling my skin throughout the day (don't laugh) and I was still able to pick up on the floral fragrance long after my shower. 

Winter wreaked havoc on my skin, leaving me dry and itchy, but after having used this soap for two weeks straight I have noticed an incredible difference. The soap's rich and luxurious lather left my skin soft and smooth thanks to its coconut, palm, and safflower oils.

 I can't say enough good things about this soap! It is absolutely incredible and such an amazing bath time treat! Be sure to pick one up for a friend or yourself. Your skin will thank you! Santa Barbara Aromatics also creates soaps in sandalwood cedar and honey orange! Both of which sound delicious!
