WSP Adds a Team Member

FR0029Everyone, meet Desiree. Desiree is in charge of soap-making, packaging, & will soon start making aftershaves & colognes. Desiree joined the WSP team in January. I needed someone to take over soap production & packaging to free me up to actually run the business and focus on new product development. Prior to joining the team, she ran Wee Irish Soaps, and still does so in her spare time. She picked up the soap-making process quickly and she’s been with WSP ever since. She enjoys connecting with fans on our social media platforms, and I’m ecstatic to have her as part of the team!

New Scent Profiles

IMG_2514Some of you have been asking about the new scent profiles. Here they are!

They’re being rolled out slowly and will become available to purchase through Amazon as they receive them.

Blackbeard – We started with tobacco, then added some cherry, vanilla, patchouli, cloves, and other spices.
Spring Rain – Spring Rain is meant to capture the essence of spring. Basil, green leaf and ozone are combined with violet, sandalwood & tonka bean.
Gaelic Tweed – Based on the iconic Green Irish Tweed by Creed. Just without any of the top notes. Middle notes of iris & violet leaf; bottom notes of Mysore sandalwood & Ambergris. A very expensive blend to create, but well worth the extra cost.
Lavenderwood – A blend of lavender cedar wood.
SandalRose – Sandalwood with a hint of rose.

October 3rd Updates 2014

So what’s new at WSP? Mostly soap news again. In today’s update: packaging & labelling, Pumpkin Spice soap, amazon update, the end to the introductory pricing.

Packaging & Labelling

I am still working on locating the rust proof tins. I’m even thinking about switching to plastic jars. But, some of you have told me you’d like waterproof labels. I can now tell you that they are in the pipeline.

In addition, I’ll be updating the labels to add some color. For example, lavender will be lavender and so forth. What I can’t figure out is: fougere noir, black amber & vanille, sandalwood & tobacco (what shade of brown (if any)). So, if anyone has any input, do let me know. Otherwise, they may stay black & white.

Pumpkin Spice

Ah, pumpkin spice. Smells like pumpkin pie. Perfect fall scent and it will be available just in time for Halloween.

Unfortunately, it contains cinnamon. And some people are allergic to it. Therefore, I only made a very small run of 50 pucks. Available early next week.

Now Available at Amazon & the webstore

Most of the best sellers are now available at amazon! Use the discount code: JRDFER3I for 40% off! Mahogany & Marrakesh are on their way.

All Good Things Must Come to an End

Finally, the bad news. The era of $6 soap will come to an end this month. Originally I was planning for the 15th, but it’s looking like it will happen closer to the 31st. So, sometime between those dates the price will go up. Get your orders in before then!

And sticking with the theme of things coming to a close, I will probably be ending the rose scent and replacing it with rose & sandalwood. Haven’t made any final decisions yet, but that’s where I’m leaning.
