Queen d'Arquien Soap is something for a true queen, although kings will also appreciate it. It looks and smells royal with cashmere woods, beautiful blend of flowers and fruit combined with a warm base of woods and amber. Seductive white patchouli flowers mingle with sweet vanilla orchid and citron peel are followed by oudh accord, and heliotrope. This lovely fragrance is completed by sun-warmed tonic beans, and crystal amber. This scent is not really a floral soap. It is warm, alluring and seductive without being overly heavy. Beautiful gold mineral complete the look of this soap.
You may wonder: where does the name come from?
Marie Casimire Louise de La Grange d'Arquien (Polish: Maria Kazimiera d’Arquien), known also by the diminutive form "Marysieńka" (born in 1641, Nevers, France –died 1716) was queen consort to Polish King John III Sobieski, from 1674 to 1696.
She was known for many things. One of them was great love between her and the king and the love letters they wrote to each other showing not only authentic love, so unprecedented for the time but also their reflections on contemporary issues and difficulties, as well as down-to-earth matters concerning the royal household and little day-to-day decisions made by the monarch, who often consulted his wife about them.
This soap is a nourishing soap packed with shea butter, goat milk, lard (which gives the soap lotion like feel) and skin loving oils. The lather is dense and creamy.
