My Happy Soaps




This post should have been online for such a long, long time but there was something about the white packaging of the soaps combined with the colors, I just couldn't capture it well in the photos. So I shot it multiple times and I just gave up, this has to do it. 
Meet a brand with some very pretty and amazing smelling soaps: My Happy Soaps. Soaps that make me truly happy!




My Happy Soaps is a really cool label that only makes these cute, pretty soaps.

My Happy Soaps was founded with a single target in mind. Create a luxury collection of pure vegetable soaps uniting tradition and modernism appealling to all ages. They also wanted to turn everyday essential into an enjoyable multi-sensory experience. 

There are 24 different scents, and they all are so original (and smell heavenly). On the website you can get all the info you need about the scents, there even is a olfactive pyramid of every scent with all the notes. How handy is this? 




The first four that I'm going to show you are Rose, Santal, Monoï and Fraise.

Rose (Rose): 'The freshness and the elegance of a delicate rose.'
Family: floral
Top note: Bergamot
Heart note: Rose, Geranium, Violet
Base note: Mint, Clove

Santal (Sandalwood): 'The warm, sweet, woody richness from the Mysore region, India.'
Family: woody
Top note: Bergamot and Orange
Heart note: Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Rose
Base note: Vanilla, Musk

Monoï (Monoi): 'The sensual and spicy fragrance of the Tahitian gardenias.'
Family: floral
Top note: Monoï, Jasmine, Ylang Ylang

Base note: Vanilla, Musk

Fraise (Strawberry): 'Small jewel of the garden, the strawberry steeped in sunshine share the fruity and gourmand fragrance the hole year.'
Family: fruity
Top note: Red fruits
Heart note: Strawberry
Base note: Brown Sugar

All of these soaps are a perfect harmony. When you think of a strawberry soap, doesn't a artificial strong strawberry scent comes to mind? Well, this sure isn't. These scents are made like perfumes, different notes to make a whole. 
My favorites are Monoï (it's amazing) and Fraise.

My Happy Soaps - Soap Bar (€8)

Why do I love this brand? 
They don't test on animals.
-They care about the environment. MHS is an eco-conscious company at heart, so they utilize renewable, responsibly-sourced ingredients respecting both plant and animal life. They do not use any preservatives and their minimalistic packaging is print-free. Thumbs up!

But of course also for their amazing scented soaps. Every scent is unique and I just really, really like these little soaps.

I'm already a bit in Christmas mood, but these would make a perfect smaller gift. Or buy three, put it in a cute box and you have a great gift for the host of a dinner party for example. (You can get these on their website or at Smets or Cosmeticary.)

What do you think about these little soaps?

Love, Rani
