Photos For The New Cubano - Now Curing

Cubano, First cut, just exposed to air. Looks all caramel-like. It's too bad it doesn't get to stay like that, but it gets darker the longer it's exposed to the air.


This is a picture of the regular sized bar and the jumbo which is the one I cut samples from or chop up for my own shower.

Cubano - I am enjoying the strange maze/granite-like designs going on in there.

I improved the scent: now with thick rich French cocoa absolute, Brazilian pressed coffee oil, instead of the fragrance oils and I have added a few drops of patchouli oil to add a bit of depth. Can't smell the patchouli essential oil, but the depth its created is there.

I am happy with it.

Curing. Will be ready for sale: My BIRTHDAY: July 11th!!

Your soaps are so visually interesting. They're more like little works of art. Great photos too!
