Lyssa Soap , AS, EDT, Despite no longer possessing an olfactory nerve, zombified subjects are inexplicably repelled by certain odors. We have combined several of these, notably rose, geranium, ashes, nutmeg, saffron, sage, oud, labdanum, oakmoss, patchouli, tobacco, and violets (specifically those taken from deceased persons) to produce a working zombie repellent
Hallows 2020, Soap, AS & EDT Taking inspiration from the swamps of Boston, we combined vetiver, oakmoss, black pepper, cocoa, labdanum, and cedar to produce a deep, cold scent suited to the chilly, bitter days of late October. Gloomy, rich, and perversely elegant, Hallows is a reminder of why men once feared the dark.
Frankly My Pear Soap and AS:
Frankly My Pear is my tribute to this pie, a sweet, inviting blend of pear, ginger, lemon, currant, and the lightest touch of balsamic sugar. While not an exact duplicate of the flavor from my memory (fresh pears are a delicacy like no other), it’s a perfect way to greet the cool weather of Autumn, and one of my favorite gourmands to date.
