Hi everyone! As promised in my last post, I have Alter Ego's offering for November's Indie Pickup (IPU) to show you!
Like Polish Pickup, the November theme for IPU is Bad Ass Women. Like for her polish, Cynthia has created a soap inspired by inspired by Hel, the Norse Goddess of the Underworld.
This is a glycerin based soap with a sweet and spicy scent. Here is the maker's description of the scent as it is much more detailed than what I could do! 'Cool morrocan nights spill their spiced winds into the vastness. Become a part of this majesty! Crushed peppercorn, floral-fig and port wine. The notes--Fresh orchard, zesty citrus and black currant top-note, a jasmine, lily of the valley, hibiscus and tuberose middle-note, and a figgy-patchouli, peppercorn and soft white-musk base-note with a deep port wine.' I really like the scent of this one! Very pleasant and not too strong or overpowering. I love anything patchouli or fig so this one is definitely my cup of tea!
Cynthia did ask me to note that after sending out blogger samples, she has re-evaluated and modified the packaging to avoid the black lettering rubbing off. Purchases from IPU will be triple wrapped (shrink wrap, bubble wrap and bag). Retail price will be $8.
This soap will be available for purchase from November 16th until November 19th along with a wide variety of products from other brands with the 'Bad Ass Women' theme!
