Introducing ... Scents & Sensibility

We confess. We at Swan Mountain Soaps are among the millions of Jane Austen fans who could watch the BBC version of "Pride & Pejudice" at least once a month.

Is that wrong?
If, instead of answering, you are still sighing over Mr Darcy, this post is for you.

We are introducing our new line of Scents & Sensibility perfumes, dedicated to our favorite Austen characters ... Elizabeth, Jane, Charlotte, Georgianna, Emma, Harriet, Elinor and Marianne.

We begin with Elizabeth, arguably one of the best-loved characters of all time...

We got to thinking about what kind of scent Elizabeth would wear to compliment her prettiest dress at a dance at the Assembly rooms at Meryton. Something fresh, clean, cheerful and feminine, of course. We've created a perfume oil in Elizabeth's honor, with strong notes of white roses and light citron notes of bergamot, violets, lily of the valley and other florals.

Our Elizabeth perfume oil comes in a 6 ml glass bottle with a roll-on applicator - the perfect size for travel. The fragrance is blended with skin-loving and vegan-friendly coconut (fractionated) jojoba and palm oils. Just a dab on the pulse points (wrist, behind the ears, neck) will carry the scent on your body for hours ... or at least through the second quadrille.

Watch for more perfumes named for beloved Austen heriones in coming weeks!
