Give Us All the Scents: Every Zum Bar Soap Scent

If you’re here, you’ve probably smelled us wafting down the body care aisle. We sure hope we made a good first impression. Bet you didn’t know there were so many more wafts where that came from.

Since they haven’t invented click-and-sniff technology yet (though we may start developing it in our Kansas City Zum factory, stay tuned), we’re here to give you an idea of all our scents, for your nose to imagine. It’s kinda like painting a picture of aromas with words. You might be thinking, “Wait! You can’t paint smells.” A mere technicality. Let your imaginative nose lead the way, and we think you’ll be able to take in the deeply entrancing aromas of the Zum Bar store display without having to get out of your pajamas or the bathtub. Plus, you won’t be asked to leave when you’re still sniffing soap at closing time (again).

Below is a complete list of all the Zum Bar soap currently in our lineup, from Almond (nutty, with candy-like sweetness) to Tea Tree-Citrus (spicy and crisp). With complete scent descriptors, you’ll know what you’re getting into smell-wise before you hit that checkout button. And since there’s so much variety in our aromas, you’re sure to find the one (or several) that match your personal style as well as your different moods. It’s always fun to experiment with whiffs you haven’t used before. Who knows? You may find a new love. Honestly, there’re no bad choices here.

If you’re a devoted fan of everybody’s fave aromatic wavy goat’s milk soap – go ZUM – then print out this page to mark off the ones you’ve tried. Better yet, make it a wish list for your loveys to lavish and lather you with! 

Remember, as J.R.R. Tolkien once wrote, “Not all those who wander are lost.” So jump in — and out of your comfort zone. With Zum’s simple, natural goodness, there’s really no discomfort zone, just assorted versions of awesomeness. (Oh yeah. You might wanna step instead of jump if you’re getting a Zum Bar, so you don’t slip.)

ALMOND

Please your body’s sugar cravings with this bar’s candy-like sweetness and nutty undertones. Though you may be tempted to nibble, we recommend you share the wealth with your skin. It’s the ultimate confection to help your complexion.

ANISE-LAVENDER

A psychedelic swirl of black licorice with herbaceous, somewhat floral, lavender. Calm and well-being are lavender’s calling cards. Paired with black licorice, the effect starts off fiery, ends up soothing. Yin and Yang, man.

CEDAR

Eau de lumberjack — the scent of campfires, #2 pencils, autumn and prairie grass, all rolled into one. It’ll put hair on your chest, and then wash it. Relax and clear your mind as you take in this aromatherapy fave.

CITRUS-MINT

Oranges, grapefruit and spearmint, oh my! A two-fer of citrus freshness and stress relief, coupled with invigorating mint, shown to increase alertness.

CLOVE-MINT

Lusty and unmistakable clove freshens up a bit with nuances of cheery spearmint. A bold flavor, but spicy-sweet nonetheless — for the bather who defies definition.

COFFEE-ALMOND

Our bar-istas pour this luscious and cleansing cocktail. It’s our version of a vanilla latte (without the caffeine jitters). We even leave the coffee grounds in for that revitalizing pre-breakfast exfoliation.

DRAGON'S BLOOD

Rich, earthy and herbaceous team up with the moisturizing powers of Dragon’s Blood resin. The resin been used for thousands of years to soothe dry skin. With Dr. Oz preaching about its powers, Dragon’s Blood is one phenom that’s not going away. Yay!

EUCALYPTUS

Smells like spring...if you're in Australia. Pungently clean with citrus undertones. The invigorating camphoric scent revives you from fatigue and exhaustion.

FRANKINCENSE & MYRRH *

Tall, dark and sexy as ever. How to describe it? Syrupy and robust, rich, full-bodied, decadent and indulgent. Year in and year out, it’s our MVB, Most Valuable Bar. All hype aside, you’ll seriously dig the concentration-improving, mood-lifting effects of this pair.

FRANKINCENSE-LAVENDER

In the Zum family tree, this is the quiet half-brother of Frankincense & Myrrh. Delicate lavender balances outspoken frankincense in a beautiful relationship. For lavender lovers with a mysterious side.

FRANKINCENSE-PATCHOULI

Slivers of our beloved Frankincense & Myrrh swim in bath of patchouli, creating a perfect dance of earthy and sensual. Patchouli — believed to help stress, anxiety and depression — is a VIP in this mix. 

GERANIUM

Smell like a summer flowerbed — crisp and botanical, but never overwhelming. The best thumb is a green one. And particularly great for maturing skin.

GRAPEFRUIT

Tangy citrus with an oh-so-sweet after-smell — delicious to eat, but even better to bathe with. (How do we end this sentence without a preposition?)

HONEY-LAVENDER

Dripping with the scent of sweet honey and buffed up with the lusciousness of floral lavender, this scent bares all.

LAVENDER

The granddaddy of aromatherapy. Take a sniff and immediately bask in its calming, lush caress. Not too floral, not too zesty, it’s just right. Great for all skin types.

LAVENDER-LEMON & PATCHOULI

If the swirling sunset of colors doesn’t grab you from the get-go, the scent will. Three favorites are woven together to offer a little bit of everything you could want in a bar of soap. Refreshing, calming and earthy — now that’s a winning trifecta.

LAVENDER-MINT

With the silky combo of rich lavender and brisk spearmint, this bar is a no-brainer. All the exhilarating powers of mint that you love, but gentle enough to shower you in sensuality.

LAVENDER-ROSEMARY

Mellow lavender and energetic rosemary offer a dynamic duo of soft and piquant, wrapped in a deep violet body. The calming effect of lavender only gets better with the mood-enhancing, concentration-improving aromatherapy bennies claimed by rosemary. Sure to make every shower a sensual experience. Can you say, “Purple Rain”?

LEMONGRASS

Lemon’s pungent cousin offers the bright, grassy tartness of citrus, but without the puckered lips. The aroma inspires mental clarity. A great soap for acne and oily skin.

LIME-BASIL

Sharp, savory and incredibly refreshing. Squeeze some of these suds on yourself for the ideal cool-down. Going green never smelled so fabulous. Inspired by the famous Jo Malone perfume.

MINT

Pure. Simple. Spearmint. Does for your body what chewing gum does for your mouth — makes you extra kissable, that is. Starts out soft, but…wait for it…has a tingly finish.

OATMEAL-LAVENDER

Lavender provides the bass, while a hint of citrus gives just that perfect amount of treble. Finely ground oatmeal handles all your exfoliating needs. A perfect bar to rejuvenate sensitive skin.

PATCHOULI

For all who enjoy rich, earthy smells — think freshly potted plants, autumn leaves and mud baths. Just a bit hippie-ish, but still delish. An ancient remedy for everything.

PATCHOULI-MINT

It’s not like two-bars-in-one. It is. A seesaw of dusky patchouli and pristine spearmint — if you could flip this bar like a coin, you’d win every time.

PATCHOULI-ORANGE

Patchouli and oranges: you know ‘em, you love ‘em, and people like you better when you smell like ‘em. For those who want to smell clean, but not too clean.

ROSEMARY

Savory sprigs of this culinary mainstay in every bar make it the perfect kitchen soap. And great for the face because of its astringent and rejuvenating qualities. Plus, heaven-scent rosemary loves to lift a mood and stimulate attention. 

ROSEMARY-MINT

Normally, getting this fresh might land you in some trouble — and it still might, but with peppermint and rosemary’s one-two punch, your back is covered. Sharp and stimulating for a pristine clean.

SANDALWOOD-CITRUS

Sweet, sweet wood, known to soothe body and mind. The balsamic smell of freshly cut branches mingles with carefully crafted essential oils in this rugged, sporty scent. So sultry, it’s a good thing you’re not expected to keep your pants on while bathing.

SEA SALT

Where there’s salt, there’s water. But nothing fishy here. We take the fresh, silky elements of a sea breeze and throw in actual sea salt to moisturize the briniest of skin. 

SEAWEED

This bar uses its natural talents of organic, raw Nori seaweed to soothe and tone skin. New wave and ready to put a hydrating notion in your ocean.

TANGERINE-ORANGE

Make yourself a little juicier with nothing but the essence of your favorite nectars. You may not be able to tell them apart, but you’ll smell the harmony. Pulp lovers unite!

TEA TREE-CITRUS

The superhero of essential oils, tea tree not only fights roving gangs of microbes, but works wonders for dry skin. Its spicy-crisp scent goes perfectly with a splash of citrus.
