Want something special for all your girlfriends? Something they would never buy for themselves? These giant perfumy soaps are luscious and decadent.
These are Claus Porto Soaps from Lafco New York. Their website shows that the Claus Porto's family-run factory in Portugal for the past 117 years.
The one shown here is the (Citron Verbena) Bath Soap.
They each look like a hand wrapped gift all by themselves. Have you seen the shops in the mall that have shelves lined with colorful French linens? All of them imported and looking like a huge field of flowers. Well... you will be reminded of that when you see these soaps.
I used to receive gift baskets for my birthday filled with tiny soaps that only smelled good for a while, and I never used them to wash my hands or take a bath. For some reason... I wanted to preserve the gift.
These gems of luxury will get used. Filled with Shea Butter... they leave your skin so moisturized you might not need to use lotion. These are not soft glycerin style soaps that melt away quickly... these babies last a long time. Oh... and the bathroom smells so good!
"They make great hostess gifts," Oprah says... She added them to her Favorite Things List.
