How ardently I admire and love you…

Inspired by Mr. Darcy’s extraordinary words, this romantic artisan soap denotes those ardent feelings with a riot of red and pink hues.

We took inspiration from the 2005 film adaptation where the proposal takes place outdoors in the rain (in Kent). We call the fragrance “Garden Rain.”

“In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” ~Mr. Darcy proposing to Elizabeth Bennet, Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.

*Please allow for natural variation in design between batches.

Handmade in small batches with gentle, moisturizing ingredients. It is made from a saponified blend of lard, olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil, and castor oil, with fragrance oil, colorant, and rosemary oleoresin. Net weight 4 oz (113 g).

All our soaps are elegantly wrapped in handmade lokta paper and boxed with care in historical Jane Austen style with a stamped wax seal, tissue paper, and muslin. (Learn more here.) They are perfect for gift giving and may also be shipped directly to the recipient with an optional hand-written gift message. Each soap is individually labeled and bundled with its origin story, similar to what you see here. See product photos for packaging examples.

    I love this soap. It’s so pretty, smells great, and doesn’t leave any residue when rinsing it off. I can smell the flowery scent on my skin for hours afterward.
