I was completely won over by this soap packaging from the brand Saipua, stumbled upon in good, a charming boutique in Beacon Hill.
I love vetiver anyway, and I am a staunch believer in fine bar soaps (I don’t own any liquid hand soap, in fact). Saipua makes olive oil based castile soaps, a family business out of Brooklyn with the mother and father making the soaps and the daughter designing the packaging.
This soap dish is everything I want it to be, too. I picked this up as a gift but I’ll be going back for my own.
The packaging for each scent is different, each with it’s own charm. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it here before but I’m into tarot (I’m into all manner of endlessly elaborate symbolic systems), and if I weren’t already sold on the vetiver I would have been by this Marseille deck inspired wrapper.
This is the Pamela Coleman Smith Commemorative edition of the Rider Waite Tarot, if anybody’s wondering.
A favorite deck of mine for the muted color palette.
Here is the other that caught my eye. Always love a good Alice reference.
This is how good packaging is done.
