Our harvest celebration - an indulgence of warm, leafy comforts. The orchard expands a bit this year, featuring Smooch!, Whipped! and Wax Tart products in your favourite apple scents. One bad apple…
Discord - Golden apples fairly glowing in a resinous haze of amber and myrrh and dripping with dragon’s blood. Previous incarnations of Discord were a far less-complex range of apple and pear notes. This re-invention almost reads like an apple version of our best-selling “Trauma” soap, and is exquisitely under-spoken. Available as both a soap, our signature Whipped! creme, and a resin-heavy Smooch! scrub. This year, we are proud to collaborate with our friends at Two Timing Tart, and offer you the Discord wax tart clamshell (go on, treat yourself to a few wonderful room smells at TTT).
Just Right - Apples done up in honey and grandma’s own buttery pie crust, steaming Earl, and warm milk so sweet you’ll never want to leave. A warm cottage, or a warm prison? Our gourmand contribution to this collection is deliciously sweet and crisp - perfectly balanced. A honey-n-cinnamon heavy soap, our classic Whipped! creme, and a honey-sticky Smooch! scrub. Room scent? Try the Just Right wax tart clamshell (from TTT).
Proscription - Apples. Or pomegranates. And does it really matter which? Just out of reach behind a wash of earth and bitter herbs. Why would you even want something you shouldn’t have? A typically Villainess approach to a rich, depth of red fruits, this one has intriguingly unpleasant notes to make it memorable. Classic silken soap, moisturising Whipped! creme, and a pomegranate seeded Smooch! scrub. Wax tarts? Try the Just Right here….
Twistappel - Green apples, sharp and discordant with fresh ginger, acrid leaves and blood-deep wines. Just as mischievous as a crisp autumn breeze, playful and outdoorsy. Because strife is nice? Shimmering green-n-blush polished soap, lightly-spiced Whipped! creme, and a ginger heavy Smooch! scrub. Finally? Wax Tarts.
The usual Smashing soap, loaded with pumpkin pulp, is “Creamy sweet pumpkin pie with a full complement of spices - cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.” The matching Smooch! ? Much like pure pie filling. Pick up the Whipped! body creme for layers of all-day sugar and spice.
Returning first! The Killer Treez soap, The bleeding sap of a thousand fallen conifers covered in maple syrup. Loaded with gooey pine tar and silk, this one is bound to thrill tree huggers/lovers/phobics.
This month’s Staff Pick Smack! is designed to complement our apple orchard, Bonfire Days features equal portions Bonfire, Bluegrass, Redwoods and Vanilla Bean.
And I’m out, guys! Enjoy!
