If you are a soap fan, you need to try a Jo Malone Soap.
They are packaged beautifully in thick cream paper and a black bow. Inside is solid bar of soap which produces a creamy lather that makes it a joy to wash your hands with. It is defined as a bath soap, but I would only use it on my hands.
The rose fragrance is authentic and the bar is not overly perfumed so as you wash your hands and then dry them the subtle fragrance stays with you for more then ten minutes.
Despite the shea butter in the formula, the soap did leave my skin a bit dry but this is not unusual for a hand soap nor an issue for me as I always use a handcream afterwards. The Jo Malone soaps are a great way to layer your favourite fragrance from the range.
