Here are the most luxurious French bar soaps to elevate your bath ritual. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with perfumed bar soaps! Whether from fragrance houses like Diptyque or luxury skincare brands like Sisley Paris, a beautiful bar of soap can definitely transform your daily shower into a serene act of self-care. Not only bar soaps are a more environmentally friendly option —they eliminate the need for plastic bottles and pumps — but they tend to last significantly longer than their liquid counterparts. What’s more, a delightfully odoriferous soap will impart a pleasant scent to your bathroom.
So trade your body wash for these French luxury soaps below and transform your daily shower into a spa-like experience. Also, if you prefer more traditional French soaps, see my previous article on the Marseille soap (Savon de Marseille in French).
