Covet: Compagnie de Provence Limited Edition Marseille Soap

Screen Shot 2013-11-02 at 6.11.27 PM

Compagnie de Provence specializes in liquid and solid soaps inspired by traditional Marseille soap-making recipes; I’m quite partial to the liquid formula. And this limited edition version, which “celebrates Marseille-Provence as the 2013 cultural capital of Europe” and is offered in a “black silkscreened glass bottle, which depicts iconic images of the region,” is something I’d want to own just for the packaging, even if I didn’t like the actual product so much. The bottle is designed by Marseille artist Stephan Muntaner, who has worked before with Compagnie de Provence. “From Marseille’s harbour to Arles amphitheater, from Cézanne to Van Gogh, from the sardine to the cicadas, rediscover Provence in a new light,” reads the promotional text.
