Snowflakes were first photographed during the Victorian period and the world went wild.
Wild for snowflakes, that is.
After a Vermont farmer first photographed a snowflake in 1880, Victorians were stunned and facinated by the unique beauty of each snowflake. They looked like six-pointed stars, each one a work of art.
These Victorian snowflake soaps celebrate the delight that Victorians found in the photos of these tiny frozen crystals. The pattern in each soap is displayed against a deep, blue background--just like a snowflake falling from a dark sky on a winter's night.
The soaps are scented with a fragrance that smells like a Victorian kitchen--notes of the wood hearth, cinnamon, a hint of clove and vanilla, plus aroma of bread and pies baking. The scent is downright delicious.
A blue flower bath tea is included with each set. When tossed into a bath, these little bags of butterfly pea flowers turn the bathwater a delightful blue.
Mailed in a sturdy white box, wrapped in beautiful tissue paper, and surrounded by dark green fluff, the Victorian Snowflake gift set is sure to delight everyone.
