Where’s the soap?

Firstly, my apologies to all those who emailed me asking where I’ve been these last few weeks. Unfortunately, due to family illness I was unable to keep up with my blogging and hence it’s been several weeks since my last post. I was shocked into doing something after someone kindly pointed out that my last blog (and the one that people were landing on) featured a large bottle of Brut. Not quite the contemporary image I have for this labour of love.

So I return to the fold with a small update about a comfort purchase. You see, when times are hard and The Black Dog bites I resort to the one thing guaranteed to cheer me up – soap. Yes, some people do drugs, some cane their credit card. I do posh soap.

So off I trundled to Liberty yesterday and treated my self to these three soapy treats. Liberty’s own brand Lavender & Eucalyptus soap has been a favourite of mine for many years and is great for men since the Eucalyptus takes the old-lady edge off the lavender perfectly. And I’m trying for the first time a couple of Dei Colli Fiorentini soaps which smell absolutely fantastic – Cypress Tree (which has a fantastically masculine frgrance) and Ginestra (aka Broom) which is sweet and smells like…..well, Broom.

To me, smelling soaps is a bit like wine tasting and you can spend hours at it. Seriously, next time you’re a bit under the weather give it a go. I guarantee you’ll come up smelling of roses. Or lavender. Or eucalyptus…..

    Posh soap truly is the way forward . . I have some similar to the above that are hand-made in Italy. Bought them from a well-known high street store . (Cough) TK maxx (Cough).

    I probably garnered some funny looks whilst sniffing my way through the pile of soap bars in the clearance section tho’. The security guard was poised, ready to evict me from the premises for crimes against normality.

    Tis worth it- the supermarket stuff is too ‘chemically’ for my liking.

    Come back carbolic, all is forgiven.

    Thanks
