True lavender blends with patchouli into a light pepperish and totally refreshing fragrance. If you find lavender is usually too floral, and patchouli is too musky, you may want to give this a try - it really does mix perfectly together.
The base of this soap has a creamy, custard color to it; but some fragrances - especially those containing vanilla - can cause the soap to darken to a tan or even a dark brown. I try to wait until this begins to happen to photograph the soap so that you are aware of what you are getting; however, it does get darker over time so your soap, upon arrival, may be darker than photographed.
A great gift for that yarn lover in your life, if you don't know what kind of yarn to give them (although here's a hint: yarn lovers just flat out love yarn - all yarn!). Many knitters and crocheters keep these bars in their project bags so that their yarn smells extraordinary.
