Joining Dayle's Simple Pleasures party from A Collection of This and That. Every week participants tell about something small or insignificant that adds joy to their lives.
Today's simple pleasure appeals to several of the senses.
It is scented liquid hand soap.
Containers of the soaps in different scents sit on counters near every sink in our house.
Using liquid scented soap is really such a little thing but it brings a bit of pleasure several times a day.
Sometimes I find lovely scented soap at Marshall's or T.J. Max; other times it's in specialty boutiques or even off-the-beaten-track gift shops.
Liquid soap made in different countries such as Therapie de Provence's "Lavender" from France and Pecksniff's "Grapefruit and Citron" from England peel tend to be very nice quality. It's worth it to pay a little more for these.
My absolute current favorite is "Orange Blossom Honey", found in Trader Joe's. The scent of blossoming orange trees is incredibly intoxicating, in a positive way. This hand soap reminds me of spring nights and a lane of orange trees in bloom. Mmmmmmmm.
It's important to note that I do not promote any particular brand of scented liquid soap nor am I compensated for mentioning any.
It's just that delicately scented liquid soap is, for me, a wonderful simple pleasure.
