Savon de Marseille

I know. I've been away from here for a couple of weeks, and now I'm back with a post about--soap. Not just any soap, though; it's savon from the famous perfume town of Grasse, where we took an excursion on one of our spring break days in Southern France. Notice this soap; it's pastis-scented! What's not to love? I picked up a couple more at the shop, too--in "olive" and "cedre" scents. I got a little overwhelmed by the many choices available on the rack in the front of the shop, but I settled on three that really say "Provence" (and "Riviera") to me. They're from L'Eau de Cassis, and they're delightful.

In non-soapy news, I didn't quite make it into the Top 25 Expat Mom Blogs, but I came pretty close (41st?). Thanks to those of you who voted! It's an honor just to be nominated.

Savon de Marseille is always so mysteriously appealing to me... So French and old school.

It is hard in the spring/summer to much to do in the outside world. I LOVE Grasse...that area has had a profound effect on our life. We use those soaps all the time, for the shower, the 3yr old son smells it and asks me "Mom, is this soap from France?" I am raising a whole new generation who love this soap too! Thanks for sharing!
