Is it normal to just stare at your soap and sniff it?

I’m happy to see this post! I thought I was just being obsessive. Whenever I get home from work I smell and touch my bars of soap curing! Thanks for letting me know I’m not alone...

I do it for “serious scientific testing quality control and marketing purposes!”

then I do it again for the fun.

Stuck in my head
:) It was normal for me to do that when I was new, and even a few years into it, but now I dont' really stare/sniff them other than to see if the color has morphed or the scent faded after a cure.
I do however, still get UBER excited when unmolding and cutting to see what I have going on on the inside. :)
