When one is known for one's elegance, fashion sense, and impeccable taste, it would not be unusual for personal hygiene products (for example), that reflect those qualities, to be named after the person involved (ahem....Cro).
We would be quite happy to wash our hair with luxurious O'Hara Suds, or bathe in warm water scented with Bardot Bath Oil.... So, it would come as no surprise to hear that a certain 'artist', known for his way with words, and his sartorial elegance, should be honoured by the naming of an exclusive, perfumed, hand-made 'savon';..... Viz CROBAR.
This rare and highly sought-after soap is the creation of Maitre-Savoneur Donna O'Shaughnassy of Illinois USA (midlifefarmwife.blogspot.com). And its catchy name 'CROBAR' the snappy prize-winning invention of fellow Maitre-Savoneur, the lovely Ms Cocobong (cocobongsoaps.blogspot.com).
I am thrilled to say that I have just received a selection of CROBAR soaps, for myself, Lady M, and the Magnonettes, for which I am sincerely grateful. Blogging is full of surprises, and my chance encounter with Donna has proved to be one of the most inspiring and informative. (She is not only a soap maker, but also a tireless campaigner for organic foods and natural farming methods)
All that remains for me to add, is that Donna's 'Crobar' soap is scented with Clove Powder, Cedar Wood Oil, and Beer (beer being the most important ingredient.... obviously), and is available, along with many others, by mail order from email@example.com.
I can recommend it wholeheartedly; and a HUGE thank you to Donna.
Cro (just call me Bubbles) Magnon.
