It was the middle of winter, and the snow-flakes were falling like feathers from the sky, and a queen sat at her window working, and her embroidery-frame was of ebony. And as she worked, gazing at times out on the snow, she pricked her finger, and there fell from it three drops of blood on the snow. And when she saw how bright and red it looked, she said to herself, "Oh that I had a child as white as snow, as red as blood, and as black as the wood of the embroidery frame!" Not very long after she had a daughter, with a skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood, and hair as black as ebony, and she was named Snow-white.

And when she was born the queen died. After a year had gone by the king took another wife, a beautiful woman, but proud and overbearing, and she could not bear to be surpassed in beauty by any one. She had a magic looking-glass, and she used to stand before it, and look in it, and say,
"Looking-glass upon the wall,
Who is fairest of us all?"
And the looking-glass would answer,
"You are fairest of them all."
And she was contented, for she knew that the looking-glass spoke the truth. Now, Snow-white was growing prettier and prettier, and when she was seven years old she was as beautiful as day, far more so than the queen herself. So one day when the queen went to her mirror and said,
"Looking-glass upon the wall,
Who is fairest of us all?"
It answered,
"Queen, you are full fair, 'tis true,
But Snow-white fairer is than you."

from Little Snow White, by Brothers Grimm

 

Magic mirrors in folklore, from the talking mirror in Snow White to the cursed mirror in the Snow Queen that distorts the appearance of goodness, beauty and truth, are objects of mystery and seduction....and generally not in a good way! The distortion of truth and innocence always leads us down a dark path; some do not return from such a journey. 

 

Fairest of Them All reflects both the sweetness of a floral heart of rose and blackberry against the mysterious, intoxicating edge of distinctly smoky oud, spicy peppercorn, velvety myrrh, warm amber and dark musk. It's captivating and intoxicating.....and completely unexpected. It may not be the prettiest soap (or is it??! LOL!), but it will defintely make you see rose soaps in a new light.
