But the fancy soap is getting used. You know the soap I mean, right? Someone gave you a bar of fancy smelling soap as a gift. They probably stood in that store or at the farmers market and sniffed every bar, with all the fancy names, like "Orange Sunset" or "Pine Forest Breeze". Made with Oregon rain water, organic goat milk, raw honey, etc. They are amazing soaps. They smell amazing and they lather beautifully.
I now buy fancy soap for people as a gift. It is a necessity in life (there is always dirt) and I take time to find a scent or a type that fits their lifestyle. Gardener's soap for my farming friends, lotion bars for friends who do a lot of rough work with their hands and beautifully scented soaps for special people.
As a kid and young adult, when I got fancy soap, I'd spend a couple of days smelling it and then tuck it away into a drawer to make my undies and t-shirts smell nice. Or, I'd set them in a decorative basket on the bathroom counter.
Eventually they dry up, lose their smell and while they still get the dirt off your hands and body, they don't lather up nicely.
