Beginning this month L'Occitane expands it's Bonne Mere line in celebration of the brand's Provencal heritage.
In addition to the Marseille Cube Soap , there are new stackable shower gels and a Marseille Liquid Soap.
The Shower Gels ( $ 14) come in 5 scents -Peach, Honey, Lemon, Rosemary & Olive . I have the peach and it's delicious. It's a soft peach , definitely peach but not heavy, sugary peach. The gel is lightly moisturizing and comes in a cube with a big indent in the bottom- that's for stacking with other scents if you want.
The Marseille Liquid Soap ($20 ) is a little spot of luxury for the bath. This perfume free soap can be used for body as well as a hand soap. I love high end hand soaps. They just glam things up a bit and the retro look on the Marseille label has a French apothecary feel.
A duo of the soaps or mixed with another product is a great gifting idea. If you need hostess gifts , have birthdays or want to start holiday shopping , hand/liquid soaps like this manage to cross a tricky line- useful and practical but luxe at the same time.
