This month, there are two richly scented soaps in the box, as identified on this card. I found some of the perks of these soaps a little unexpected, so it's nice to have them explained on this card.

Blackberry Loofah Soap - Value $9.99? (based on other Saffron soaps)

The first thing I noticed about this translucent, vegetable-based soap is the vibrant fuchsia color. It's really pretty, especially when the light passes through it. Inside this puck-shaped soap is a loofah sponge, which as the card explains, is meant to exfoliate your skin as it begins to peek through the soap. I love exfoliating soaps and scrubs, so I appreciate that this soap (literally) contains an exfoliating element. The smell is juicy and sweet, and while those types of smells aren't my favorite (I feel like they can be a little overpowering), this one lacks the saccharine, chemical undertones that other berry-scented products often have.

Bluefish Soap - Value $9.99

This soap has a lot of different elements to it. First, the name of the soap is Bluefish—a nod to the Omega-3 fatty acid that's found in fish and in the recipe for this soap. Omega-3 fatty acid is apparently very good for keeping skin moisturized, happy, and young, so it's a key feature of this handcrafted "anti-aging" soap. Given the oceanic themes of the soap, you might expect the scent to be something salty or beachy. Surprisingly enough, this soap's scent is "Ginger Ale", and it's extremely accurately named. The soap smells as sweet and fresh as a glass of soda. Unexpected? Yep. And maybe not my first choice for a shower scent. But the moisturizing benefits of the Omega-3 definitely made me curious to try it.

Here it is outside the box. The color is pretty—almost like topaz.

Verdict: Saffron soaps are definitely out of the ordinary, in terms of their fragrances and upscale ingredients. The scents in this box were quite powerful, in my opinion, so if you're a fan of subtle aromas, you won't find them here. Still, the functional benefits of the soaps put them on the nicer end of the spectrum, as do the beautiful colors. Saffron prices its soaps at about $9.99 a pop, and they don't seem to be for sale anywhere else. That means that for $14.99 per box, you're getting about $20.00 worth of sophisticated, hard-to-find soaps. If you're passionate about unique scents and serious about high-quality ingredients, this would be a fun monthly box to receive.

Which of these Saffron soaps are you most curious about?

Keeping an eye on this one-sounds unique (ginger ale soap-?).
