You'll find a wonderful memento here, as well as see firsthand how it's made.
The unmistakable fragrance of Marseille soap.
Marseille has been famous for its soap for centuries, and a whiff of it immediately evokes the freshness of clean clothes, soft hands, welcoming homes. If you're looking for an original gift - or just wish to learn more about the history and artesenal techniques behind these reknowned traditional soaps, head for the Savonnerie Marseillaise de la Licorne in Le Cours Julien. In additional to the original recipe based on extra virgin olive oil, new versions have been created based on natural ingredients such as green tea, honey, lilac, lavender, vanilla, violet, and roses. Here you'll also find other cosmetics such as balsamic oils, liquid soaps, and perfumes, to mix and match with delicate wicker or metalic gift boxes. The perfect gift for sybarites (including yourself).
