Are you ready for some soap reviews? Here’s reviews of the “dark” soaps by Villainess.
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… Continue reading | 2 Comments
I’ve reviewed a few Villainess soap bars in the past. And here are 2 quick reviews of the “green” bars.

It’s decadent and I feel decadent bathing in it. And… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Here’s my review of three of the fruity-floral scents:
Datura – A intoxicating blend of crisp, regal gardenias, sweet frangipani, verdant tuberose, and soft, beguiling pikaki lani.
Datura is a beautiful, heady white floral. I… Continue reading | 1 Comment
It’s time for me to tell you that I love Villainess Soaps. They are highly fragrant, aesthetically pleasing, lather nicely and leave the skin lightly fragranced. I also love the packaging and the look of the entire line. Here’s my review of two of the more “boozy” scents:
Blood – “Merlot grounded in dry fig and inspired by a ripe bouquet of berries“. Blood is a fresh fig poached in tart red wine. It’s dark and mysterious. Blood isn’t overly “fruity”… Continue reading | 2 Comments
