West Indian Mango
Guilty! I searched far and wide to find the mangoiest mango scent, and I know I've got it. It's sweet for sure, but with a lemony top note. Batches are infused with Jamaican annatto seeds for a warm, ripened colour.
The family mango obsession is attributed squarely to my parents. Their favourite is the aromatic, firm-fleshed Julie mango (and there's always been a tree growing in their garden, planted and replanted after some memorable hurricane seasons), though I am partial to a juicy Bombay myself. Because I can't get into the particulars of the smell with any decent description, we decided to call this one simply 'West Indian' mango.
Our Sargasso Botanica soaps begin with a base of coconut butter + aloe vera. To this, we add olive oil, mango butter, and wildcrafted murumuru butter.
Though eating it on its own is a treat . . . especially after a long and patient wait for mango season. . . we also love mango as a savoury at our dinner table. Try a Trinidadian mango chow with your next curry.
