If you got into the super-viral Lake & Skye fragrance and are looking to take that relationship to the next level, get excited: You can now experience the fresh fragrance throughout the day as you wash your hands. Launched just this week, Lake & Skye hand soap is now available to you as you aggressively sanitize your hands every couple of hours.
People who have the fragrance love the fragrance. The original unisex scent, called ‘11 11,' is made with notes of white ambers and musk, and was “inspired by the color white and the teachings of Kundalini yoga.” Fans describe the scent as "ethereal," and people who have tried it tend to become so intoxicated by the scent that it has a 90 percent reorder rate. To boot, it has killer reviews on Fragrantica.
The new 16 ounce liquid hand soap pump retails for $36, and will have the same signature sheer, clean, uplifting smell as the spritz. One reviewer reports, “11 11 is the olfactive definition of inoffensive,” so chances are, you’ll like this even if you’ve never smelled it before (and even if you're "not a fragrance person"). Another reviewer notes that he bought the perfume for his wife, but ended up loving it for himself, too. “You just smell clean—like clean air or clean laundry,” he says.
After testing the soap myself for about a week (a lot of handwashing goes down in a week!), I can confirm—it smells fresh, light, clean, soft, and absolutely lovely. What I love about the fragrance is that you get an in-the-moment perfumed experience, but it doesn’t linger too long, so it won’t interfere if you’re wearing another kind of perfume or fragrance. Its texture is a silky gel, which doesn’t strip your skin or dry out your hands. And the sleek black glass packaging? So chic on the bathroom counter. All around, a luxury experience made from something otherwise mundane.
According to Lake & Skye, hand soap has been continuously requested by their “rabid fan base.” And if all this praise wasn’t enough to get you to drop over $30 on a luxury hand soap, consider this: the brand plants a tree with every online order and “only uses transparent ingredients” and the product is vegan, cruelty-free (zero animal testing), and free of parabens. Lake & Skye is also PETA certified.
And, if you’re thoroughly enticed by this fragrance and want more than just a hand soap, you can snag a bottle of the 11 11 eau de parfum for just under a hundred bucks.
