Villainess Antihero and Pyromania Soap Reviews

Are you ready for some soap reviews? Here’s reviews of the “dark” soaps by Villainess.

Villainess Antihero soap

Antihero – “Well-worn sweaty leather, the acrid smoke of cigarettes, and a soft side of vanilla and honey.”

Antihero is a badass fragrance. It may scare your Ivory. The scent smells of black leather motorcycle jackets and vanilla cigarillo ashes. I love the fragrance but I do have a problem with the soap. All of the other Villainess soaps that I have tried have a nice lather for a handmade soap. This one doesn’t lather. And the soap is pitch black. It leaves this charcoal foam on the skin before rinsing because Australian black clay is swirled in the ┬ábar. And this doesn’t make me feel clean at all even though my skin feels “clean”.

Villainess Pyromania soap bar

Pyromania – “A highly unique fragrance based on black pepper essential oil. Peculiarly spicy, warm black pepper, sweatened with brown sugar, and touched with a veil of smoke.”

Pyromania reminds me if you had gingerbread covered in spicy, freshly ground black pepper. It’s a spicy, warming fragrance. It has poppy seed “scrubbies” which are a bit too abrasive for my sensitive skin when used directly, but my husband like the scrubbies. Like I said, my skin is sensitive. It’s a great unisex soap bar and if you are a fan of Serge Lutens 5 o’clock au Gingembre, you may like this scent.

I love the scent of Anithero but if I were to repurchase, I’d buy it as a body cream (Whipped!) or the body scrubs. I love the fragrance but wasn’t crazy about the soap for the reasons listed above. It’s a must try fragrance for anyone that likes leather scents.

Soap bars retail for $5.50 at Villainess.
