Mother's Day Special

Mother's Day is fast approaching! What is your plans for your beloved mum? Gifts? Flowers? Dinner at a special restaurant? My mother and I have always been extremely close - with her looking much younger than her actual age (fingers crossed its been passed down to me!) - we have always shared this special bond as mother/daughter, big/young sisters, best friends and lots more! So, Mother's Day has always been a special occasion for both of us, during which I always enjoy spoiling her rotten! Remember, our mumsies are really just girls at heart =)

So, Soap 'n Sorbet is pleased to help you pamper your mother to the fullest this Mother's Day! We have concocted 3 special gift sets at GREAT DISCOUNTS including beautiful make up clutches from Caro London, handmade Soap Sacks from Nostalgia Organics (remember you can upcycle the soap sack fabric to cute goodies!), lip balms and parfums from Tokyo Milk/Love & Toast, and body loving goodies from Lalicious! Mix and match the designated scents to show your thoughtfulness!

Only for a limited period of time! Enjoy!

Limited items from Lollia Life

Been away from this blog for longer than I'd like! But it has been an extremely busy period...stock taking, liaising with our new stockists, arranging giveaway activities and so forth! So it has only been today that we are able to upload Lollia Life goodies on our website, apologies!

Anyways, many customers have been very intriqued by the various creations by the talented Margo Elena and we constantly get asked when will we bring Lollia Life? Well, we thought we'd start off with just very limited number of goodies first as the range is very extensive and we really don't want overwhelm customers..So we have cherry picked our favourite scents called Imagine and Breath - and of course who doesnt need a hand cream or two especially when they are breathtakingly beautiful in texture, packaging and scent??

Imagine: Enjoy this handcream depicting this dainty bird in blue and pink. Mandarin, Jasmine, French Verbena, Coconut Milk
Breath: Beautiful depiction of graphic roses in yellow, orange and red. Rose water, Crisp Apple, and Bergamot.

New Tokyo Milk Parfums

As huge fan of Tokyo Milk, I just love the creative range of scents available from this niche brand! We originally started off by carrying 9 Tokyo Milk scents, and after 4 months into biz, we gradually have a good sense of what our customers like - and so we decided to bring in 4 additional scents that (hopefully) will be to your taste!

Having liberally spritz myself with these new fragrances, here are my humble takes of what they smell like:

Cherry Bomb: This kicks off with a burst of chocolate - nothing too sweet at all, but rather (in my imagination) like the kick from putting a nice indulgent piece of praline or truffle in your mouth! (yup, I am a chocoholic!!). Slowly this fades into the background and the rose/fruity scent creeps up. I do seem to detact a tinge of vetiver too which balances it nicely to be something feminine, but deeper and not overly girly/sweet. A very subtle/easy scent to carry.

Honey and the Moon: Something entirely different! This scent is delicious, sweet, warm, and with a bit of spice. The honey note lasts all the way and smells like something straight out of the jar! Not the processed stuff but something raw...Mixed with a bit of woody scent and it feels earthy, but at the same time blankets you with a warm fuzzy feeling. It has jasmine in it although it was faint on my skin.

Sparrow: As it's name suggests, this is a light cheerful scent just like a little sparrow! Something perfect for daily use with its pretty florals coupled with some grassy freshness. The citrus base was not strong on my skin though. Gradually a tinge of wood will creep up giving it a slightly deeper sensation.

Waltz: I love how they match the name to the scents! Unlike Sparrow's pretty florals, this one is floral but in a crisp, fresh way, just like how waltz dancers swirl to the rhythm! I love the linden in this which gives it a more "decisive" feel to the underlying florals that also makes it an uplifting, slightly energised floral scent. Very clever!

To throw in my personal preferences, I usually like light, feminine, refreshing scents. Gin & Rosewater remains one of my favourite with its uplifting rose/citrusy scent. But Cherry Bomb - something I never envision myself liking - is coming close! So for daily uses - I'd go for Gin & Rosewater or Waltz; for a more romantic mood - I like Le Petite's florals and vanilla; and for a little mischief/indulgence - definitely Cherry Bomb! I am not a woody person, but Song in D Minor gives a little twist from white florals into wood - a pleasant little surprise!

I think the whole experience with Tokyo Milk is about fun and be constantly surprised! If you are lost for choices, you can buy our Perfume Trial Set, which will give you a good taster of how amazing they are! Enjoy!
