FuturePrimitive Soap Co.: Spring Order

I was slap clean out of hair conditioner. I popped over to FuturePrimitive Soap Co. and Tiggy just happened to restock all her general catalogue scents so I took that as a sign to splurge a bit. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I moon over Tiggy's Conditioning Hair Rinse. It is light on my curls but moisturizing and smells delicious. They run 9.25 pounds which is about $12.95. I don't keep up with economics like I should be either the dollar is failing or the pound is gaining or a mixture of both because it is gettin' on up there. Ah well. It won't stop me from enjoying my FuturePrimitive, I am here to say. Let's discuss scents...

Sylph- Notes: Clouds of fluffed up marshmallows infused with a glug of classic French lavender oil. 
I love Sylph. In perfume oil, wax and bar soap. If lavender vanilla combos speak to you, you will want to try out Tiggy's. The lavender embodies herbal steel coolness that holds a touch of jammy rosemary and pine in its aroma. The marshmallows sweeten it up with a crystalline vanilla syrup that pairs so well with the French lavender. I am thrilled to pieces to have this as a conditioner (and shampoo!).

Cordwainer- Notes: Rows of brand new button-up shoes made with the finest new leather, vanilla scented handkerchiefs, a splash of amber cologne and rich resinous patchouli.
Cordwainer first tickled my fancy as a wax tart but really, I knew this leather patchouli would be divine as a bath and body scent. The patchouli comes through in the hair rinse and whipped soap much more than it did in the wax and that is just fine by me. This is a calming and polished patchouli accented by supple leather and amber. Earthy yet refined.

Orange Coconut Mallow- Notes: Sweet orange with a splash of coconut water and a dollop of marshmallow cream.
I have not had the pleasure of trying this scent yet and I must admit that I might not have if I hadn't had such great luck with Tiggy's Clotted Peach Cream and Strawberry Patch. I tend to shy away from fruity scents but Tiggy works magic on them. They are never artificial or cloying. I never get cavities just by smelling them. Orange Coconut Mallow is brilliant. Juicy and tart orange segments mingle with light and airy coconut shavings. 

I like to pick up the matching Three In One Whipped Soaps to be my shampoo. They make for nice shaving creams too. Don't let the super light and airy texture fool you... these bad boys go a long way. They cost 6.95 pounds.

Light yet surprisingly dense goodness.

I also picked up one bar soap. It is my weakness. I chose Gothica which is a Clinique Aromatics Elixir dupe. Notes of heady florals, soft aldehydes, bluebell sap, dusky rose, heliotrope, patchouli and dark woods mark this fragrance. It smells boozy and rich like a spiced oriental fragrance. A joy to bathe with in the shower.

Tiggy's soaps seem to just get better and better. 

What types of scents are you craving right now? I ended up deciding to use the Orange Coconut Mallow first since it radiated spring time to my nose.

I also find I am craving florals and light woods and amber and honey at the moment. 


  1. Ooh, Orange Coconut Mallow sounds great! Enjoy your scrumptious sounding goodies. :)

    1. It is pretty great! I love the fresh sweetness and pillowy tropical feel of it. Thank you. I am doing the whole Herbal Essences moaning thing in the shower. It is quite scandalous.

    2. Haha. I thought of you when I saw the description for Moon Fruit in the upcoming release. How's your soap stash?
