I met "Charlie" a few years ago during one of my vacation trips to Rome. I went down to the Amalfi Coast for a few days. Pictures do the Coast no justice. I need to get back there.
At the time she was working at some chi-chi store. She decided to quit her job and do her own thing.
What a glorious thing it is. She comes from an art/cosmetics background and put those skills to good use.
These soaps are.the.bomb! Really. My favorites so far are the "Crema di Limone" and the "Rosmarino e Menta." (The latter is pictured above). She uses natural ingredients found on the coast. The smell is light and amazing.
Price wise of course they are more expensive than mass produced bar soap you buy in the supermarket. However, I think her prices are lower than L'Occitane.
Anyway, both Carol's Daughter and Jo Malone started out the same way. Check out her site. They would make great, unique gifts as well.
