The 'Compagne De Provence Extar Pur' natural collection captures & reworks the fragrances as well as the colours of what is described as France's most legendary region. With the sleek design, modern, bold & colourful typography these make a fashionable chic statement to any bathroom and with irresistible fragrances including wild rose, grapefruit, orange & cherry blossom, verbana as well as olive & lavender they add a new twist to natural bath & body care.
Their brightly packaged liquid & bar soaps also pay homage to Provence's most famous export which is the iconic 'Savon De Marseille' cubes, these were blended in cauldrons according to techniques that were passed down over 400 years. The 'Extra Pur' bars are made from natural glycerin with pure olive & palm oil, the body lotions & hand creams are formulated using a blend of sweet almond oil, shea butter & vitamin e. The hand lotion unlike many others absorbs instantly giving a fresh feeling as well as moisturising the skin leaving it feeling soft & smooth, as with the body lotion too which again leaves your skin feeling fresh as well as soft & silky. The soap cleans & freshens the skin while preventing any dryness as many soap bars can do, all these products have a very striking fresh & natural scent, definitely reminiscent of the French countryside!!!
The range also includes Shower Gel, Foam Bath as well as relaxing & soothing Candles, retailing under £13. Available from John Lewis, The Conran Shop, Cologne & Cotton and Harrods. Check out the site on www.lcdpmarseille.com
