Yorkshire Soap Company was first established in 2004 by Marcus & Warren, who took inspiration from artisan sweet shops and the travelling circus. Using Marcus' experience as a chef, and Warren's retail experience, they began creating soaps around their kitchen table using only cake moulds and baking cases which then soon grew into something more, and 8 stores later, Yorkshire Soap Company has finally arrived in Harrogate! How it hadn't arrived earlier, I do not know...
I had been invited along to their Boutique Opening in Harrogate and having visited their Leeds store several times, I was excited to attend! One of my personal favourite items is the 'Amber' Luxury EDT, that they stock, proving that they stock only the very best. Sarah and I both went to the event together and as we were walking up, I couldn't help but notice a sweet smell radiating from the shop out onto the street!
The first thing that I noticed when I entered the Boutique was the wide array of soaps all beautifully presented across a table and in the far corner of my eye, a unicorn! You could be forgiven for mistaking the soaps for mini cupcakes and other dainty treats as I know I certainly did...
I worked my way around the Boutique and one scent that stood out to me was their 'Yorkshire Lad' Soap Bar, primarily because I found the name to be charming and the scent itself woodsy yet refreshing and epitomised how I would imagine a 'Yorkshire Lad' to be! The Boutique itself felt intimate and with many delicious scents to choose from, you could easily find an excuse or two to pamper yourself, and what's better still, is that Yorkshire Soap Company products are all;
- Made in Britain
- Suitable for Vegetarians
- Never tested on animals
- Delicately handmade
- A proudly independent run business!
