It’s not often that I stray from my beloved Mrs Meyer’s Lavender Dish Soap. But when I spotted the unmistakable boldly patterned bottle at my local Target, I knew I’d be taking a pump-bottle of the Method Orla Kiely limited edition dish soap.
Once I got it home, I was even happier, because the scent I purchased — tomato vine — was one that transported me to a much happier place. Where it’s warm, sunny, and the days are long — tomatoes ripening slowly on the vine, bees abuzz. This aroma, though a limited edition for spring, has summer written all over it. The olfactory effect on my housework has been much appreciated, as I almost look forward to washing dishes on these gray late winter (almost spring) days. It’s like a promise of what’s to come.
At $4.95 a bottle, I better get a few (that limited edition thing) since those warm summer days are still a while away from us here in the Pacific Northwest.
