I have been using handmade bar soaps exclusively for almost 6 years now, and I just cannot get enough! I like my soaps to smell reminiscent of the season, but nothing too perfumey (instant headache), and I’ve never been interested in the soaps that smell like desserts. My years of scouring Etsy for scents and sales eventually landed me at Abbalope Handcrafted Soap.

She has just about every scent combination you could possibly imagine. Which brings me to perhaps the best part: 50-CENT SAMPLES!! You can select any scent from her shop and try it before you buy it!
I’ve been burning through samples for many months now, and have a long list of scents that I love. Here are the soaps I have chosen for the upcoming fall and winter seasons:
