I'm a sucker for fancy soaps. I don't know whether it's the ingenious packaging ... the delicate carving ... the beautiful aromas ... but whatever the case may be, I'm in love with them. And I've recently found my new soap soul mate in Roger & Gallet's Magnolia Perfumed Soaps.
From top to bottom, left to right, backwards and frontwards -- any which way! -- they're absolutely gorgeous. Let's start with the box itself, which is emblazoned with a sweeping floral motif and accented with gold leaf. Slide the top off and you'll find three round soaps inside (each 3 x 3.5 oz.), emitting such an amazing scent you'll feel as though you've died and gone to heaven. Each is packaged just so, in crinkled white paper with a signature Roger & Gallet sticker to keep them in tip-top shape for you. Once you peel back the paper, though, you have the coup d'etat -- beautiful round soaps hand-cut with the Roger & Gallet logo. This box set is definitely one of the greatest beauty gifts any woman could receive.
Hey, the company has been around since the late 1800s, so they must be doing something right!
