Half Agony, Half Hope


In Captain Wentworth’s love letter to Anne, he wrote that he felt “half agony, half hope.” Those stirring words inspired this half black, half white bar soap. Scented with sandalwood and lemongrass, you’ll love this elegant bar.

“You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever.” ~ Persuasion, by Jane Austen.
