Feed Your Skin.

 

Blended with luxurious oils, Sweet Olive Soap Works brings you the best of Louisiana-grown and skin-loving ingredients for gourmet soaps, dead sea salts, and body butter products.

 

Every batch of olive oil based soap is handmade using the cold process method and then cured for one month because quality takes time to reach perfection.

HANDMADE GOURMET BATH PRODUCTS BY LOCAL SOAPMAKER

 

Soap maker Emily Manger handcrafts each bar of soap using the traditional cold process method passed down through generations of her Louisiana ancestors.

 

By creating soap the old fashioned way, this southern soapery produces each batch from scratch using gourmet recipes that have been formulated to naturally nourish and moisture your skin.

 

Handmade in New Orleans and beautifully packaged, Sweet Olive products are luxurious treats for people who love Louisiana and her culture.​

LOGO DESIGN

 

Sweet Olive Soap Works recently celebrated its eleventh anniversary in business. After ten years, the soapmaker decided to update the company logo and rebrand the products by collaborating with Midnight Boheme to create new designs.

 

Midnight Boheme was more than honored to work with Sweet Olive in refreshing an already well-established brand by giving it a "digital facelift" and stylizing the new logo similar to the original but with new panache!

REBRANDING

AND NEW

MERCHANDISING

 

Inspiration was abundant in supply as Midnight Boheme began rebranding Sweet Olive Soap Works as the soap company's existing brand had a youthful, bright, handcrafted ambiance and just needed to take it to the next level of a more boutique-style, gourmet southern soapery shop.

 

Stacking the soaps along her desk, designer Laura Kuhn inhaled each scent as she designed the new brand and packaging to ensure an authentic source of muse for the visual artwork.

 

Launching the new brand in 2018, Sweet Olive promotes on Facebook and Instagram along with e-blasts to customers past and potential to announce special sales and discounts on merchandise. The response has been extremely positive to the new brand and the updated packaging with the fresh gourmet recipes for soaps, bath sea salts, and body butter.

ABSINTHE ORLEANS

GOURMET SOAP

 

Keeping in the French spirit of the city, Absinthe Orleans offers the sharp blend of anise, peppermint and lemon balm essential oils for an invigorating lather popular among artistic bohemians and New Orleanians alike.

 

Packaging design by Midnight Boheme, inspired by the soap's gourmet ingredients of anise, peppermint and lemon balm.
