Lime, Raspberry, Lemon, Apricot and Lavender.

A large batch of new soaps!

Ok we want here to go directly to the point : we have a lot of new soaps with new fragrances. So I guess I should just make a list here so you can judge for yourself and shop one or several of those really nice products from France.

In the "classical" shape (and weight) section of our Provence soaps; here are two new great fragrances : Lime and Raspberry.

Lime - 100 g (3.50 oz)

Raspberry - 100 g (3.50 oz)

Want soaps with grains? You might love our exfoliating Bran and Lemon soap and the soap with embedded Apricot pits as well. Ouch!

Bran & Lemon - 200 g (7 oz)
Apricot pits - 100 g (3.50 oz)

Also we thought this little lavender cube is too cute to be left alone in Provence. Poor baby. So we brought it here in Canada!

Lavender cube soap - 100 g (3.50 oz)

One last gift for the road : we offer a 50% discount on our 100g blue lavender Provence soap and 250g bags of rose soap flakes. Well, while it last.

Enjoy summer time!

Marseille soap flakes.

Nearly two weeks ago we had tons of soaps that arrived from Marseille. Among our regular products we also received some new ones which will be put online as April unfold.

Just like this 1kg bag of Marseille soap flakes.

Basically, those soap flakes are grated household Marseille cube soaps made on a olive oil base.

Dye and frangrance-free.

hoist up the sails


Finally, our heavy load of household Marseille soaps has left the soap factory and is en route to Canada.

Unfortunately it will take longer than expected since the cargo is planned to dock on March 26.

Meanwhile, we still have enough 300g olive oil cube soaps to hold on until the end of March, so please enjoy them :)

Thank you.

So all those Marseille cube soaps for the body will be tag as "in stock":

- L300OLI
- L300PAL
- L600OLI
- L600PAL

Plus, the following 300g scented cube soaps : orange blosson, lavender, rose.

Thank you!

Here they come!


The ship carrying our Marseille soaps is going to dock next week at the Port of Montreal, on Thursday, January 14th to be exact.

Of course, that does not mean we will have our missing soaps right away since they must be unloaded and go through customs clearance. So, we hope to see many of our soaps available again sometime during the week of January 18th.

Note that only soaps whose reference (or SKU) starting with the letter "L" are going to be restocked at this time.

There will be a couple of new products, but we will unveil them later on. :)

Mystery and patience.

Gone with the soaps


The watchful eye will have noticed the stock level of our Marseille soap which seems more like the level of available water in California.

Handmade Marseille soaps and cornucopia will obviously never match.

So what's next?

The good news is that we are having right now a load of soaps on their way to the boat. This merchandise should arrive in Montreal around mid-January, perhaps a little earlier. This applies to all Marseille soaps with the reference code starting with the letter L, like this one.

The bad news is that Marseille soaps with code beginning with the letter S are not yet manufactured, for example cubes soaps for the laundry (household). As I am writing those words, we can not give an estimate of arrival but it would be surprising to receive those soaps before the end of February.

Of course and as we often hear in the Montreal's Metro: other messages will follow.

Meanwhile, we will take care of our website, improve a thing or two and take it easy a little bit. Part-time Holidays are perhaps not such bad news after several years without taking any.

Thank you for your patience and see you soon!

Household Marseille cube soaps reloaded.

We just received household Marseille soaps from France!

As you may know, when a household Marseilles soap has just been made, it contains a lot of water. Our soap makers put them on wooden shelves in order to let them dry.

However, when those soaps arrive here in Canada, they are still a little bit wet, so we too have to let them rest on wooden shelves for a bit.

Here is what a "wall" of olive oil soaps look like!
