Cotillion

$10.00

COTILLION bar soap is named after the fancy ball in Northanger Abbey. It is scented with rosewood and musk. Mysterious and deep, and feels perfect for an elegant party full of hope and uncertainty–a black tie affair of 200 years past. The black accent is dancing through the white, and if you look at the mirrored effect of two soaps together, it looks like a big twirling skirt! (of course with petticoats underneath, one must take care of ones reputation!)


INSPIRATION for COTILLION soap:
“I consider a country-dance as an emblem of marriage.” ~Henry Tilney.
“To be sure not. People that dance only stand opposite each other in a long room for half an hour.” ~Catherine Morland. Excerpt from Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey.

In late January, Catherine Morland travels to Bath with Mr. and Mrs. Allen. In mid-February, she attends the Cotillion ball where she dances with Mr. Tilney. They have a lovely chat too and we all fall hard for Mr. Tilney.
