Pipe Dream soap is a handcrafted, small-batch cold processed soap. It has an aromatic smoky aroma of tobacco that finishes with a creamy sweet vanilla fragrance. This soap is the perfect mix of savory and sweet, and has a beautiful smoky brown, cream, and dark grey swirl pattern with a patina on the top of the bar that will remind you of aged leather. Pipe Dream soap is also available with Pipe Dream soy candle in the Pipe Dream gift set.
My Dad smoked a pipe every day for a number of decades. When I was little, he would blow perfect smoke rings for me to stick my tiny fingers through before they disappeared. My Dad’s pipe tobacco of choice wasn’t vanilla, but it was a sweet variety, so this sweet and creamy tobacco scented soap takes me back.
The primary ingredients in Pipe Dream soap include olive oil, coconut oil, water, palm oil, sodium hydroxide, sweet almond oil, castor oil, and cocoa butter. This bar produces big, fluffy lather.
To produce its lovely swirl pattern, I colored Pipe Dream soap with titanium dioxide for the lighter part, mica for the dark grey, and the brown is a result of the natural discoloration of the vanilla in the fragrance oil. Each bar of Pipe Dream is unique with variations in swirl pattern and slight variations in size. However, the bars are approximately 5.0 oz.
