I have shopped at L'Occitane for many years, and among my very favorite purchases are their Traditional French Milled Soaps. I grew up using handmade French Milled Soaps, and buying them was a family affair. My mother, sister and I would make the trip to a local store, near my hometown, that specialized in these soaps and packaged them in clear plastic pouches filled with potpourri punctuated my tiny little rose buds and lavender. The aroma when you walked through the doors transported you to Province, and the whole experience was so delightful that one couldn't help but feel happy.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise that L'Occitane's beautiful Traditional Soaps are among my favorite picks from their gorgeous selection of products. Here are my very favorite soaps from their impressive collection:

The Roses et Reines collection uses rose extract derived through enfleurage, a traditional process made innovative by the L’OCCITANE research team. The freshest of rose petals are steeped in oil, allowing it to become saturated with the natural fragrance of the rose, resulting in a fruitier scent.

ALMOND SUPPLE SKIN OIL ($42.00 3.4 oz.): Formulated with more than 50% almond oil, this light, fine body oil effectively helps skin feel supple and smoother.
