We Have Tried It

We have tried it and we like it. Natural Impulse is our first experience using handmade soap. Hubby likes Bay Rum. I'm enjoying Too Sexy for my Soap. It's supposed to be irresistible to men but I haven't experienced that as my husband hasn't stopped smelling himself. We are a fragrant couple -- but in a good way, lol.

Scratch that--my husband just noticed the scent. I think he likes it.

Edited to add: I chose Too Sexy for my Soap because I absolutely love the smell, not because of its reported male-irresistibility properties. So when I wrote the above, it just tickled me how my husband was enjoying his Bay Rum scent. He's a "manly man" so I never would have imagined he would take to a bar of soap like he has.

Glad you like it! I got the idea for the "Too Sexy" scent from a story I'd seen on 60 Minutes or 20/20 - one of those shows like that. They did a study, taking college students and hooking them up to all sorts of sensors. Then they had them smell all kinds of different things... the one that set off all the bells and whistles for the men was the combination of Lavender and Pumpkin Pie Spice! So I made a soap from that.

That scent combo was high on the list for women too. :)

What an interesting experiment. I wondered what made you think to combine the two. Both lavender and pumpkin spice are scents I love but it never would have occurred to me that they would smell even better together. The bathroom smells good just from the bar of soap being in it. It's like I put potpourri in there, which in a way I guess I did. :)
