I did it.......#FAIL

I HATE....simply HATE to waste product.

I mean, would YOU buy this soap?

Here is the fragrance description, 
which is named for it's sweetness, 
See it's pretty little cousin in the glycerin version sitting here so demurely?  
A simply perfect rendition of what the fragrance is like; so sweet, so feminine, 
so beguiling but in an innocent, sweet 16 
in a pretty pink dress eating a big pink cloud of cotton candy sort of way.

The main notes are Vanilla, Sandalwood and Sweet Heliotrope. 
It seems to have a fruity note in there - 
maybe a sweet maraschino cherry too?

Nope, NOT the look I was going for.  What I was going for was a gorgeous 

melange of

swirled chocolate  with  rose swirls.
Something you just want to dive 
into and slather all over in a hot steamy shower.

The above soap would look good as a Cold Processed loaf in the
 Christmasy fragrance that I am loving right now 
in the tart clean and fresh fragrance of Cranberry and Fig -   
here is the Glycerin Version and it is beautiful:

DANG IT!  (sorry)

OK, now I have ranted and raved, I feel better. 
Writing is cathartic sometimes;  well, most of the time  =)

So now I have 5 POUNDS of this soap and I have two options:


 add to my Shelter Soap Bucket:  

It's a 5 pound bucket I keep in my kitchen and add
to it all the scraps and scrapings of every batch of soap that I make.  One
Day I will take it down to the Conroe House of Prayer and 
donate it to them as they feed, 
clothe and minister to the homeless in our city.    
It will be a luscious, fragrant and
 good for you melange!

Oh well, chalk it up to experience, and log mistake for 
future generations of soapmakers.

Happy Tuesday, dear reader!   Seize your day!

Don't be so hard on yourself, even if the color isn't what you were aiming for, these still are not scrap soap! Pink Sugar is such a sweet scent too. :)
