Bohemienne Life: Folktale Raptures


Bohemienne Life still lives. Kyme is definitely taking it slower but she still plans on creating odds and ends, popular soaps and wax as her schedule will allow it. She mentioned leaning more towards using essential oils and that excites me. In fact, the scent I am featuring today is an all essential oil creation that I simply adore. 

Months and months ago my sister Darby had Kyme make her a body powder with lavender, peppermint and patchouli. When I was over at her house I was sniffing it and got all starry eyed. Fast forward to about a month or so ago when Kyme mentioned slowing down and possibly closing shop, I knew I wanted to get an order in. By the time I was able to get on the site most of the wax I was wanting was sold out so I figured I would pick up some body care instead. It turned out to be fortuitous because I noticed that Folktale had just those three notes in it and was available in a few different products. 


Folktale- Notes: A blend of all essential oils... lavender, peppermint and a grounding bit of dark patchouli. 

I really do love this scent. Icy tendrils of peppermint marry beautifully with dusty wooden patchouli. The lavender is herbal yet serene. The push and pull of the cooling mint with the earthy patchouli and steely lavender make for a fragrance that touches upon the senses in a multitude of ways. 

I wasn't sure what to expect from the Bath Buttah but it is pretty darn amazing. I used it like a whipped soap in the tub. It lathers and bubbles up into a silky cream but it also has a bit of fizzing action to it. I have not tried anything like it before. It left my skin feeling clean and refreshed. 


I was remiss not to try the Sugah Buttah before this either. It is a pillowy sugar scrub that feels more fluffy and whipped than most I have tried. It certainly exfoliates well and it also has a creamy texture that lathers up.


You know me and my bar soaps. I am a bar soap kinda gal and my whole family is too. Kyme crafts a beautiful soap. And I just love her branding and touches, like the wax seal and printed vellum paper. 


Folktale makes a brilliant scent as a soap and creates a spa-like cleansing experience. 


It lathers well, possesses a rustic charm and smells deep and rich. 

I also have this scent in a clamshell and it melts wonderfully. If this was in a lotion and a pillow spray and body spray I would have bought all those too. And then surrounded myself in the peaceful haze that is Folktale. 

Kyme is restocking Bohemienne Life in her Big Cartel store which is linked above. It is slated to open today at 6pm CST. I will certainly be popping over to see what all will be released. What is your favorite Bohemienne Life scent?

  1. I will keep an eye out for this, I hope it returns. Lavender mint is my favorite combo!!

    I picked up a bunch of eo soaps from Fatty's Soap Co recently (despite the head scratcher choice of shop name), ordering 8 or so bars to get free shipping, the standout for me was a Ylang ylang bar. Ready for florals now that spring has finally arrived.

    1. I hope it does too. I bet Kyme would make it again as she mentioned wanting to do more essential oil based blends.

      Fatty's huh? :-) I will have to check them out. Ylang ylang can be such a gorgeous scent. I love Laurie's Yin and Ylang scent she made. <3 Spring has been beckoning to me too via the florals. Violets have been my craving.

  2. I am behind on my indie scrub/body care game but these look incredible! I love me a good fluffy, whipped scrub. Scrumptious! I would even be willing to look past the patchouli in Folktale for the lavender and peppermint. Gotta love a good peppermint and lavender blend.

    1. I have a weakness for lavender mint combos as well. The patch is pretty smooth. I found the other day that I was down to only one Bathing Garden scrub and one Cosmic Cleanse scrub so it was time to grab a couple. <3

  3. Oh man, I just can't get on board Team Bar Soap, and I so want to, because bar soap is the prettiest! But I can't keep it from getting all gummy and goopy, and it tends to run out SO QUICKLY. Like, what am I doing wrong with the stuff that a giant bar only lasts for two weeks?! Okay, time to end the bar soap freakout!

    1. Wow! That is crazy to last only a couple weeks. We have slivers that last for months. But we are picky about storing them in the shower out of the water and on special soap holders that drain. Adam loves his bars and got me hooked on them too. I just don't feel as clean when I use a shower gel now. But I may slather some on just for scent purposes. I like using shower gel as bubble bath now.

  4. I still have plenty of Bohemienne Life wax to melt for the first time, but so far, Dragonfly in Amber is my ultimate!! It's a scent I just want to be slathered in! :D
    I had a Leatherosa sliver of soap that was to die for!
