Once inside the store, you become intoxicated by the aromas, intrigued by the artisan soap designs, and enamored by the unique soap furnishings. Then you begin to imagine yourself in a deep hot tub full of suds surrounded by an elaborate display of soap dishes filled with luxuriously scented bath jewels.
The shop inspires many ideas for redecorating your private bath. But once you get home and look around, sometimes there are conflicts between ideas and reality, leaving you with thoughts about where to begin. Buying soap is relatively easy.
