Each Month, a New Soapy Scent Pops Up

What do you get when you take a former drag queen and a doctor to a 200-year-old farm? Beekman 1802, a concept that aims to get people connecting with old-timey pleasures such as cooking, gardening, and crafting. Writer Josh Kilmer-Purcell and physician Brent Ridge (a former VP at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia) live on a farm estate in upstate New York, where — among other things —  they have a line of handmade soaps ($12.50/set of two) made with milk from the farm's freely grazing goats. The soapmaking process avoids using harsh chemicals, and each bar is scented with essential oils. Nice. What I love about this concept, though, is that there's a different scent for each month. Each bar incorporates scents found on the Beekman 1802 estate — think fresh grass for March, apples and firewood for October. Such a cute idea for gift-giving, and an affordable luxury for those of us who miss a whiff of country air now and then.

Yogaforlife, you can order any month's soap whenevah. That's kind of funny when you mention the bar soap thing... I grew up using bar soap, and I can use someone else's at a sink, but not in the shower.

Do the different scents only come out on a particular month? If so that would make a great "soap-a-month" club gift. I love bar soap because I feel it's more environmentally friendly than liquid soap that comes in plastic bottles and it lasts so much longer. However, I find that no matter how luxurious the bar soap is, almost none of my guests use it when they use the bathroom, which grosses me out to know they probably are just rinsing their hands and not actually scrubbing with soap. So I caved and bought liquid soap and everyone uses it. Very frustrating!

I agree, yogaforlife. Could be an unusual (but usable!) birthday gift, or the whole set for a New Year's present.

This sounds like it would be a great gift idea.
