- Pure and Natural, Nothing Synthetic
- Patchouli’s earthy aroma is said to enhance stability and heighten one’s sensuality. The perfect soap to use before meditation or romance.
- Its lingering aroma stays on the skin and is excellent for dry, cracked, chapped, inflamed or aged skin.
- Gentle enough for all skin types and a good soap for men.
I bought several bars of different kinds from this company. I love the patchouli and am ordering several more bars today. People stop me in stores and tell me I smell good! I also have the patchouli foaming hand soap, and everyone who comes to my house wants to wash their hands in it. I use the soap for shampoo, since I have very soft water, and it works great! I highly recommend this product!
The soap arrived promptly and it smelled wonderful. I used it several times and the scent was great; at least to me. Some people I know don’t like that scent. However, about half way through the bar the scent had faded and I didn’t really like the smell of it at that point, so I threw it away. I would have been happy if the patchouli had lasted all the way through the bar, but, to me, it didn’t. I think the purchase was too expensive to have turned out this way.
Square shape can be hard to hold onto
Everything about this soap, except its shape, is terrific. I love the fragrance, it lathers moderately well in hard water, it leaves my skin soft and lightly fragranced, and I have had no allergic reactions as has happened with other soaps. That said, the square shape can make the soap difficult to hold (I have small hands) when it’s slippery in the shower. I would prefer an oval or rectangular shape, which I did not know until I purchased and used this soap. Lesson learned in a mostly-pleasant way.
most wonderful scent
the bar is so big i cut in to 2 pieces. my skin feels like silk and smells wonderful. love love this product.
Popular with some- too pungent for others
Scented soaps, just like perfumes and colognes, are a subjective matter and as such; I cannot actually criticize or say this is a bad soap, because in and of itself- it is a quality soap-just too strongly scented.If you like Patchouli or know others who do and would like to consider this as a something for your personal use or a gift, keep in mind that this soap bar is heavily scented.I bought it and the response from those who used it, was that the scent was too overpowering for their taste(it actually permeated one floor of the home after someone used it in a shower).Now- if you like this scent and you like it on the strong side- this could be a good thing.If you like it more subtle, than this bar of soap is going to smell overpowering to you.All in all- if you consider buying this, think of the Patchouli scent and how strong you enjoy its essence, because this brand is definitely not subtle.
It was the worst
I loved the oil, but the soap had barely any scent, and felt as though it was going to fall apart in my hands. It was odd shaped and very fragile. Not buying this again.
I love this soap!
I have previously bought this soap in lavender but decided to try it in patchouli and I am impressed that I plan on buying more.
nice. scents the house.
Another imaginative Valentine’s Day gift for a patchouli loving aging hippie-really I should give up! Except he liked this. It has a tolerable floral scent that wafts from the downstairs shower bath all over the house. It likewise scents the skin. I’m not sure I could tolerate that scent all day and night. Odd that the essential oil dissipates in an hour or two, and this soap lasts so much longer, lingering if you like patchouli, this is worth a try.
It’s another try of a patchouli soap and nope it’s not what I can call patchouli smell! I like it strong and it doesn’t smell strong and the patchouli smell sort of is really too mild. I’d describe it more of an essential oil.
I like it, I just didn’t love it. I love patchouli, but this smelled alot more like dirt or earthy than I would have liked. Just a preference. I loved using it, very fragrant and lathered well. Kind of an awkward shape. Next one I might cut in half.
Wonderful way to start the day. Smells just lovely. If you love patchouli, you’ll love this soap. Make the smell last longer by just cutting bar in half (STILL bigger than little sample bars so I have no problem with the size) and use half and put other half in a baggie for later. Will keep the scent and your soap will last a lot longer.
Strongest scent of all the others
This is by far the best and strongest smelling bar of soap made by Plantlife. I put the bar in my guest bathroom and even after washing my hands, the whole restroom smells very good! The size of the bar is quite bigger than I thought. If you arn’t sure which fragrence you like, i’d recommend first buying the sampler pack, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002NV8Y3E/ref=oh_o03_s00_i01_details To see which smell you like best. Just be aware that the sampler pack has much smaller sized soaps that if you buy the bars individually.
