A good friend a customer told me recently that though her husband tells everyone to buy our soaps, he won’t use them himself. When asked why, he said that they smell too “foo fooey”. I told him that we have several manly scents that he could choose from. But he said that they smell “foo fooey” too. So I told him, I was sure that I could make him a soap that smells like dirt. He said “Go for it! I dare you. I double dog dare you!”
Not one to pass up a challenge, I went in search of a dirt scented fragrance oil. Founding just what I wanted, I’ll be heading out to the shop one day this week to see what kind of dirty trouble I can get into.
Will post pics of the end results here when I’m done :)

Walmart loves to shock and awe. City-size stores, absurdly low prices ($8 jeans!) and everything from milk to Matchbox toys on its shelves. And with the recession forcing legions of stores into bankruptcy, the world's largest retailer now apparently wants to take out the remaining survivors.
Thus, the company is in the beginning stages of a massive store and strategy remodeling effort, which it has dubbed Project Impact. One goal of Project Impact is cleaner, less cluttered stores that will improve the shopping experience. Another is friendlier customer service. A third: home in on categories where the competition can be killed. "They've got Kmart ready to take a standing eight-count next year," says retail consultant Burt Flickinger III, managing director for Strategic Resources Group and a veteran Walmart watcher. "Same with Rite Aid. They've knocked out four of the top five toy retailers, and are now going after the last one standing, Toys "R" Us. Project Impact will be the catalyst to wipe out a second round of national and regional retailers."

Needless to say, the fall scents may run into the release of winter scents. I hope that my recovery is quick and I can get back into the shop soon. But after over doing it yesterday, it seems that recovery will not be as rapid as I would like.
So please bear with us as my daughter and myself try to keep up with orders and production at my much delayed, and slow pace.
