Soap on a rope is back, and it's no longer just your dad's toxic-smelling cologne kind either. Nope. Now soap on a rope is made with good-smelling, sometimes fresh cut, and often handmade with all-natural ingredients, and it looks good. An adorable addition to your bathroom decor and no more sudsy bar cluttering up your sink.

We probably owe the return of soap on a rope's coolness factor to the folks at the Ace Hotel and their modern, in-room soaps on ropes. The Ace's exclusive soaps are made from crushed pearl and natural ingredients like olive oil, coconut, palm, rice bran, shea butter, pearl powder, and pearl butter.

And trust me, everyone is talking about these soaps on ropes.

Even Jamie Oliver is selling soap on a rope these days. Who'll be next? Closet candle maker Sandra Bullock?
