We couldn't create a 'Marie Antoinette' without having a 'Louis'. The ideas for Louis came from the Palace of Versailles.
Louis XIV had Orange trees brought in from Italy, Spain, and Portugal for his Orangery. So many that Louis XIV could boast the largest collection in Europe. Because of this, we couldn't think of anything better than Orange EO to scent these Soaps.
Louis XVI, the husband to Marie Antoinette, loved science and mechanics. He had laboratories built and a working forge. He also had workshops devoted to mechanics, physics, woodworking, and more. We added 2 lines of Activated Charcoal to represent Louis' interests.
If you've ever been to Versailles or even seen pictures, there's a lot that looks like gold. Well, if it looks gold, it probably is! I couldn't create the 'Louis' without adding a touch of gold. We have a line of gold Mica through the middle of the bar and swirled into the top for some extra sparkle.
