Lychee is a popular fruit enjoyed extensively in Vietnam, China and Thailand. It is gaining in popularity in the US in food and I love it in this blend because of its intriguing exotic fruity sweet note. It has a subtle nuance of dew fruit and a unique finish that makes your mouth pucker and water at the same time. Mixed with Red Tea (also known as Rooibos), this blend finishes with the white florals of geranium and lily.
When my dear husband smelled it, he said, “Yum, it smells like Fruit Punch.” Make that a sophisticated, slightly tart Fruit Punch and he’s hit the nail on the head.
Look for photos of the first cut of the loaf soap and a video later today.
