I have to confess that although I enjoy holiday baking (and eating), I’m not crazy about my house smelling like cloves and cinnamon all the time. For one thing, the Mister, Big, and Middle are convinced that if the house smells as if I’m baking something, then I actually should be baking something, which would clearly cut into my blog-reading, magazine flipping, and bon-bon nibbling time, mighty scarce as it is!
Still I don’t want the T&C House smelling like athletic shoes and Clorox either. So, welcome my new favorite scent—the perfect blend of pine and paperwhite and peppermint with the smallest whiff of spice. Yes, it’s a soap not a candle or potpourri, but once it’s unwrapped from the lovely packaging, the scent fills a room without overwhelming.
Made by the family-owned Greenwich Bay Trading Company in Raleigh, North Carolina, the soap is made of domestically sourced vegetable oils with no animal testing. Inks are soy-based and printed on post-consumer recycled paper. The entire product is designed, manufactured, packaged, and shipped from Raleigh. It is available in a hefty 10.5 ounce bar as well as a petite 1.9 ounce bar, which is perfect for unwrapping and placing in bowls on a bookshelf or on the top of a cupboard to let the fragrance bless the room.
Heck, you can probably even wash with it.
What’s your favorite holiday scent?
