Product Description

Scent Name: Orange Flower

Absolute bliss. Pure, moisturizing Savon de Marseille soaps with the regional flowers of lavender, orange, rose and verbena. In the Middle Ages, big blocks of gentle soap were first crafted in the Mediterranean port city of Marseille with olive oil from local groves, marine ash and sea salted water. The quality of these soaps were immediately famous throughout Europe and in 1688 French law declared that only soaps made according to certain ancient methods could bear the important mark Savon de Marseille. Now the most prized of all soaps in the world, our Savon de Marseille is still crafted by hand, in Marseille, just as it has been for hundreds of years. It takes the Maitre de Savon (soapmaster) two weeks to make Marseille Soap. The purest ingredients (mentioned above) are heated for ten days in antique cauldrons. Know-how passed down through the generations will reveal to the soapmaster the right moment to pour the mixture into open pits where it slowly hardens. Cut into cubes and stamped, without machines of any kind, the soaps are then set out to dry in the sun and cool winds. Savon de Marseille (also known as "Marseille Soap") is once again being rediscovered for its extraordinary purity, gentle skin care and ecological value. Savon de Marseille is recommended by dermatologists throughout the world for dry or sensitive skin, eczema and other ailments. In France it has been trusted for generations to cleanse everything from linens to little faces. Marseille Soap is totally biodegradable, requires little packaging and its manufacture is environmentally friendly. Authentic Marseille Soap is stamped with its weight in grams - allowing households to compare prices and plan their inventories. No soap is "greener." In France they are sold piled high on open-air market tables like produce, wrapped in craft paper. Your Savon de Marseille will be delivered without plastic packaging, carefully wrapped in paper stamped with the famous marks to prove its authenticity. © FSL

This fragrant line of "Savon de Marseille" is sheer bliss! I bought the Lavendar and the Rose. Each has a wonderful fragrance that permeates the senses, and provides for a very satisfying and luxurious bath and shower experience. The moisturizing qualities of these pure "Vegetable Oil" base soaps are combined with heavenly fragrance. Not the cheap smell of ordinary lavendar and rose scents often found in bath products; but rather, the intoxicating aroma of "Lavendar Flowers" growing in a field, or the unmistakable delicate yet rich perfume of "Rosa Damascena", the Old Damask Rose. Service provided by French Soaps (the vendor) is also excellent! Products arrive fresh, well packaged, and with lightning speed.

Scent Name: Lavender
I got tired of cleaning soap scum off of sinks and tubs from traditional American deoderant soaps. I tried a non-Savon de Marseille brand of olive oil soap from Amazon which ended up smelling wierd and feeling slimy; though the label said that it was only made with olive oil and sea salt, one of my daughters broke out after we started using it and quit breaking out when she quit.

Then I found these Savon de Marseille French soaps. I like the pure ingredients, which do not result in huge amounts of scum on the tub after use and which rinse well off of the hands and which do not dry the hands even after frequent handwashings. I like the flowers in them, which do really aid in exfoliation. I am allergic to most perfumes, but the scent from my two favorites--rose and orange--come from the real flower and thus do not set off my allergies.

Some people complain about the cube shape. We've found appropriate soap dishes and gotten used to the shape. Don't cut the cubes! Just use them! They wear down soon enough. And the cubes last a LONG time, even as much as I wash my hands. Hey, my 20-year-old son has never complained since I introduced these soaps, and he WOULD complain if he didn't think they were OK.

This isn't just a soap. It's a pure formation of flowers and fragrance that you never want to be without. The block shape reminds one of its pedigree: the famous, centuries-old "Savon de Marseille" French soaps. But then this company (called "French Soaps" simply enough) started adding crushed lavender flowers from the countryside of southern France along with pure lavender fragrance. The result is the most beautiful, rustic, heavenly soap on the planet. As the flowers lightly exfoliate, the olive and palm oils moisturize and nourish. I buy 10 at a time and share them with my closest friends. By the way the verbena and rose petal varieties are just as wonderful. I haven't yet tried the orange flower (might just order them today!).

I have decided that this is my new 'must have' soap. I purchased the Savon De Marseille in Rose and the scent is heavenly (not at all like the 'rose scented' bath products you might find in cheap holiday gift baskets).

Bathing with a big block of soap is a little awkward and clumsy but I found that if I swipe it a few times on my shower pouf, it creates a nice thick lather with very little product (bye bye shower gels). Skin feels clean, not dry, tight or itchy. In my opinion, the only con was that this soap had such a 'strong' scent out of the box (I think it could be 'headache inducing' for certain individuals). I was happy to find that the fragrance was toned down significantly after using it in the shower.

P.S. There is a fifth scent not listed on Amazon called 'Grape Vine', but you can find it by going directly to the Frenchsoaps website. I wish I had gone to their site prior to making my purchase because I would have taken advantage of their special pricing to purchase all 5 varieties (then I'd know which ones are my favorite, though I am very happy with the Rose). Also, don't throw out your 'Order Receipt' without checking the bottom right hand corner of the printout. Mine came with a promotion code for Free Shipping with my next order over $45.

Scent Name: Verbena Verified Purchase
i didn't think i'd like the square at first, but it is perfect in the shower as it doesn't slide out of your hand so easily-once i tried a bar of this- i was addicted to it. i am addicted to this soap. fair warning to anyone who tries it- you may never again buy any other kind of soap and might go into withdrawal and depression if you should happen to run out or be away from home and didn't take it with you.

Scent Name: Rose Verified Purchase
This soap is pretty good. It lathers well for a good cleaning and keeps the skin moisturized. One thing I really noticed about it is that it rinsed completely off the skin. Some soaps can leave the skin itchy feeling. This soap did not do this at all.

Scent Name: Orange Flower
I got the Savon de Marseille 300g Orange flower soap. It seemed like a small square of soap but it lasted for a while. Be careful when cutting into smaller blocks as it is very crumbly. The soap smelled fresh and the foaming action was very creamy. It rinsed off well and left my skin feeling very clean yet not dry. I would recommend this to anyone.
