Citrus Fun!!!

Good Morning Everyone,
Alongside the "Original Sin" Soap batch, I made another batch of gourmet soap with a new fragrance.  I receive catalogues, full of sensational fragrances but no samples, so I have to choose from the description I am given and this one was special.  This is the catalogue's description:

     "This fragrance opens with a refreshing burst of sweet mandarin and exotic yuzu, intermingled with touches of unripened grapefruit, lemon and orange peel. All this is enhanced by a light floral blend of lily, rose, orange flower and gardenia, while in the background, notes of woody amber, sandal and blackberry leaf emerge."  

Anyway, so all my senses say "Yes" and gosh, it is divine...  It is very fresh and fruity with a citrus punch that translate into a fun and vibrant scent.  That said, I wanted to represent it as such, so off to the drawing board and here are the results: 

This is a close up of the top of the log.  We can even see the orange and white glitter this time...

Tah-Dah!!! This is one of the slices.  It is cute, fun and vibrant!!!

This soap feels fun and smells absolutely divine.  It reminds me of the picture of a city as the sun sets and the lights go on in the buildings.  So dramatic and enticing.  
With added olive oil, it is also super moisturising and conditioning for the skin.  Perfect for a fresh start in the morning..
