LEAF Your Love, a review of a remarkable soap from Senteurs D’Orient
by advicesisters.com staff
Did you ever give your dad a soap on a rope?
Senteurs d’Orient Mint Soap Leaves isn’t one of those.
You’re grown up now and have more than one special man in your life.
This other guy — he’s not your dad, and he deserves something unique for Valentines Day.
Of course, your dad deserves something special as well, but we think this idea is really for that “other guy.”
We discovered a modern and luxurious take on that soap on a rope to please his senses (and think of you) every time he uses it: Senteurs d’Orient Mint Soap Leaves ($40/box of 30 soap leafs).
The soaps from Senteurs d’Orient are handcrafted and individually cut by artisans in their Beirut atelier. The fragrances are sensual and sophisticated.
An intense, spicy, beautiful and aromatic Senteurs d’Orient Hammam Soap impressed us so much we included it in our gift guide for men. But these are not really just for men — you will end up “borrowing” them back.
It’s just that men will find these fragrances exciting, especially after the same offerings from the fragrance world of lemony or a “wood-centric” fragrances, without all that much variation.
Presented in a hard-sided box (great if he travels) featuring a tranquil mint green design, each hand-cut soap leaf sends the uplifting scent of mint plus green tea to his nostrils as he washes his hands and face.
The soap leaves themselves contain a blend of precious essential oils, fine fragrance and moisturizing olive oil, vitamin E, shea butter and glycerin to leave the skin clean, soft and the body feeling relaxed.
A great smelling guy isn’t a bad bonus for you, either!
LEAF him on Valentines Day and maybe he’ll LEAF you, too!
