I've been trying to come up with one more soap for Longcroft Soap Company's 2008 soap collection, but nothing took my fancy. After sniffing at least fifty different fragrances, I decided to try a spicy plum fragrance. I remembered liking this one a lot when I tested it, but I didn't realise until yesterday just how much. I think I might be in love!
I'm calling this soap Spiced Umeshu after the delicious Japanese plum wine. It has light citrus notes, but the main scent is rich plum resting on a base of patchouli and amber. There are touches of cinnamon and and clove which add a warm spiciness to the fragrance. It makes my nose very happy.
