Moonlight Sonata

My son decided he wanted black soap as soon as he saw the colors in the sample package I got.  “Not red or blue?” I asked, his favorite colors since he was something like two.  “No!  I want black soap!  That’ll be cool!” 

So, black soap.  It’s not all that unusual, actually, in soaping circles.  I’ve seen it a few times, and when soapers make blends with it, like black and white swirls, it can be gorgeous.  (Future soaping goal, black and white swirl soap*) 


My son chose a scent called, Sunlight, Moonlight, and Starlight for his soap.  I thought he might like the Drakkar Noir copy-scent I got, but he didn’t care for that one quite as much.  It really does smell like Drakkar Noir, too!  He thought the Moonlight Starlight thing would go nice with a nighttime colored soap.  I was kind of thinking the same thing with the Noir reference.  Either one would have gone well, I think. 


This is how it looked after unmolding.  He’ll be able to start using it in about another month.  He seemed kind of excited, actually.  You know, as excited as 14 year old boys can get about soap, lol.

  1. Wow! It looks AMAZING, Babe! Bet it smells good, too!

    Drakkar Noir, huh? I don’t think I’m familiar. I’ll have to check it out. I like my soap to smell like soap, but maybe that’s a nice one too. 🙂

    1. Ummm … huh … it has a little bit of a spicy scent to it but not too strong. It reminded me a little bit of a very mild men’s cologne, but not so masculine that a woman wouldn’t use it.
