With summer just around the corner, it’s time to start talking about summery fragrances – although, really, Blackberry Sage is popular year-round.
The description on the listings is short and to the point: “Berries galore, with a subtle undertone of sage: A glorious combination!” Well, that’s true, there’s no denying it. It’s bright and fruity, fresh and delicious, juicy and sweet, but with a slight herbal note underlying the whole picture to keep it from being cloying or overpowering.
It’s a very popular soap, but – and this surprised me when I realized it – it is my absolute best-selling solid perfume, at least in the last six months. Also popular in lotion, sugar scrubs, body butter – well, basically, the fragrance is very versatile, and loved by pretty much everyone who likes fruity scents and about half the people who usually don’t.
It was also a fairly early addition to our soap lineup, and while a good third of the fragrances that we offered at that time have fallen by the wayside, Blackberry Sage is still going strong and there’s pretty much no chance I’ll be discontinuing it any time soon.
