I made a perfume oil inspired by (and I hope reminiscent of) Bois des Iles by Chanel. By far the most complicated blend I've put together so far, but it smells pretty good. Probably will smell even better after a few weeks to meld and mature. I'm going to use part of the bottle I made to scent my challenge soap, if I can find/make time to make it before the entry thread closes. Seems fitting, Bois des Iles was introduced in 1926.

Packaged my finished healing herbal infused soap. Thinking about making tangerine in a few days.

I made the mistake of photographing one of my soaps a little too early; it turns out the red (and, by extension, the purple) needed some time to oxidize to hit electric pink and purple...

Yesterday I wrapped and labeled soap I made the first night of the Northern California wildfires. I will be giving these bars to my DIL's family when we go there for Thanksgiving in a few days. The other two soaps I made on this trip are not ready yet, so they are still curing in a plastic basket.

Also read back several pages on this thread, but still not caught up.

And The Last for Christmas. It's a high-lard formula, which really only requires 4 weeks. It's in the oven enjoying a CPOP session at 170. Predictably, it's peppermint with a dash of evergreen and a drop of musk to anchor it a little bit.

oooh you know I LOVE Channel. Their perfumes are exquisite. I wear No 5 since I was 15, I think it has become part of my natural smell.

Very clever and fitting to use that combination for the challenge!

I am somewhat slightly handicapped in that I've never smelled any of the Chanel perfumes, including the one I'm trying to approximate. I'm just going off of reviews. It needs some tweaking still, I think, but the fine tuning is going to have to wait til I can order a couple of EOs.

Just finished my last Christmas soap, right under the wire! It's my yearly staple, too. Scent O'Claus.

If you participated in the 2011 Christmas swap, you've gotten one!
