Delicious little shop on the market square in Portree, selling mainly handmade glycerine soaps with wonderful smells, like lemongrass. They also sell gifts, and bath oils, etc A pity there were no other type of soaps, only glycerine.

Very friendly staff and some terrific soaps and knick knacks. We found this place after receiving some of their soaps in our hotel. We found many items worth shipping home to the US.

What a wonderful little shop, if you can't find something here as a present, you're not looking .... or sniffing. The soaps are wonderful and get used regularly back home

I purchased a couple of soaps to take home as souvenirs. I make soap myself (as a hobby) and so handmade soap is always a favorite of mine. Those I am loath to use them up I did try one bar and it was wonderful! And the store smelled so good inside! The lady behind the counter was very friendly... More

I can't resist good soap, this is a beautiful shop with a lovely range of quality products. I love citrus soaps and those and a lovely hand cream were added to my collection. As I use them they will remind me of a wonderful trip.

These soaps smell absolutely divine! There is lots of flavours and some very unusual ones too! I got a mango and mint one which I love. They do quirky things like soaps in the shapes of animals and crystals which you can use to scent drawers or use in oil burners. Worth a stop by!

Shop was fabulous but very disappointed in product 😢 Walked into the most amazing smelling shop, set up beautifully, staff warm and welcoming. So so hard to choose what I wanted to buy. Settled on a lime bath bomb and I have to say I've never ever been more disappointed. Yes I had had it for a month but I... More

Hi thank you for your feedback regarding bath bomb. In over 15 yrs of trading we have never received a compliant regarding smell. All our baths only use pure essential oils in them with no colourings and are freshly made in our premises every week, in fact this is the lovely smell you get on entering our shop. If you... More

Glad to have found this little hidden gem situated next to the Church on Portree High Street. We came across the brand at the Canowindra B&B we stayed at. The scent of the shop was absolutely attractive and we enjoyed perusing (+ sniffing) and selecting the products for our families and friends - the soaps are made very well, and... More

As soon as we walked into the shop the smell of the soap hit you. The best smell ever!! The lady that served me was lovely and very friendly. Actually went back the next day to purchase more.
