I remember when my friend Joanne asked me to go to Anthropologie with her. I had no idea what the store was like, and she said, “It’s kind of indescribable – it just has the coolest stuff.” We walked in and I went straight to the display of Soap and Paper Factory, which was the coolest looking stuff in a sea of retro coolness.

The Soap and Paper Factory is the creation of three women who had a vision – a combination of earth friendly products with an artistic flair that stimulate the mind, body and spirit. Everything is made with care, precision, and love, resulting in unique, gorgeous items that will truly express your own distinct taste and personality.
The Hand Cream ($18) is beautiful inside and out. I adore the packaging, it just looks like something that belongs on the set of Mad Men. The hand cream is thick and rich, with an elegant formula that totally soothes dry skin.
I tried the Bella fragrance, which was inspired by the daughter of one of the owners. It has bergamot, grapefruit, and black pepper in it, so it smells of juicy citrus with a kick. There are several other beautiful fragrances available, like Tuberose, Neroli, Marine, and Fleurs D’Hiver. There is bound to be something you think smells amazing and it’s worth getting every scent for the packaging alone.
And how about a matching diffuser? Check out this drool-worthy Aromatic Room Diffuser ($32). Mine is in the Green Tea scent.
The Aromatic Room Diffusers are all oil based, biodegradable and phthalate free. They are a great looking alternative to candles or plug ins.
Like the Bella fragrance, the Green Tea scent is a sweet citrus and it makes a room smell beautifully clean. It’s a great choice because it’s neither feminine or masculine, so everyone loves it.
Right now there is an online special at Soap and Paper Factory for the room diffusers, just enter the code DIFFUSEME12 and get $10 off any diffuser.
There’s a lot to love in the Soap and Paper Factory line, so go to Anthropologie or the Soap and Paper Factory online site to check it out. Everyone can always use a little more retro coolness! – Lisa
