Top 10 bar soap for fall
After an old Dutch summer, we rolled into autumn quite quietly. A period where the leaves fall and some of us always have to adjust firmly to that. The days shorter. killer. Getting up shivering in the dark when a new (work) day starts. It always takes some getting used to.
But it is also a wonderful season. Turn on the fireplace. Candles that flame and the Bock' that flows freely. Making kilometers in the scented forest and rolling a good glass of Malt when you get home. Or a Cognac. Hot tea is of course also possible. With some rum.
The changing weather type not only requires different drinks and food, but also a next step in body care. With some deeper scents. Spicy. That is exactly what we have designed our fabulous block soap collection for. Quality that goes so much further than the regular commercial liflaf soaps.
Internally we didn't even have to play around a bit to shape the top 10. Of course everyone has his (or her) favourites. The fact remains that we have positioned ten top soaps in a vertical row here.
- Small Batches
- The best (organic) ingredients
- Sublime fragrance palette
- Perfect skin care
- Cruelty free! (No animals involved)

You imagine yourself in a typical British tea garden. But in the middle of autumn.
