Who are Compagnie de Provence?
Two friends from Marseille founded Compagnie de Provence in 1990, kicking things off with a modern version of the iconic Marseille soap (a favourite since the seventeenth century). Compagnie de Provence offered a simple and luxurious interpretation which flew off the shelves. The brand has since become synonymous with authenticity, simplicity and quality, offering up hand creams, body creams and body wash sets to name a few.
It’s not just beauty products that Compagnie de Provence are renowned for but their luxurious range of homeware products. From candles to diffusers, they’re just the ticket when it comes to relaxing and unwinding in the comfort of your own home. Let’s dive into our top picks from the Compagnie de Provence collection…
The Scented Candle - available in 3 scents!
Glassmaking craftsmanship and high-quality fragrance make this scented candle a pleasure to own and use. Luxurious essential oils sourced in the French city of Grasse combine the downy skin of almonds with the subtle essence of white musk. The extended burn time of this 260g candle ensures you will get countless uses from it. Choose between Rose Bay, White Musk or Green Verbena for hours of well-deserved pampering.
Hand Cream - Black & White Collection
Compagnie de Provence’s Black & White Collection celebrates the power of everyone’s favourite beverage - tea! Both black and white tea enrich the range of hand creams and body creams with their antioxidant superpowers. Black tea and blueberry create a succulent depth to the moisturising creams, while white tea adds a zingy, citrus quality. With all the class of a perfume and the deeply nourishing qualities of a far more expensive moisturiser, this lovely hand cream is a must.
No girl’s bedroom is complete without a gorgeous diffuser. These clever devices take the scent of your favourite essential oils and spread them into the air around you. The Compagnie de Provence Fragrance Diffuser comes in a choice of Rose Bay, White Musk or Green Verbena. Opt for Rose Bay if you like the thought of pink berries blended with musky notes, or White Musk if you’re a fan of white almond and vanilla. Green Verbena is the freshest of the three scents, boasting a bouquet of jasmine and lemongrass. If you don’t have a diffuser in your bedroom already, it’s time to make the change!
Soft Skin Set - Fresh Verbena (Limited Edition)
For the most luxurious body wash set you’ve yet to encounter, dive deep into the Soft Skin Set from Compagnie de Provence. Containing a bottle of the famous Liquid Marseille Soap, a luxurious Hand Cream and a fragranced Body Cream, all three products are scented with delicate verbena. This elegant flower boasts a subtle, floral scent that will gently enrich your skin, whilst also blitzing away bacteria and body odour. The Hand Cream and Body Cream will also deeply nourish and repair dry skin for a smoother, softer you.
Rattan Sticks for Fragrance Diffuser
When picking up your favourite fragrance diffuser, don’t forget to purchase a few extra rattan sticks. These handy sticks dip into the fragrance oil and help it transition from the jar to the air. To get the best possible results from your fragrance diffuser, turn over the sticks every few days and replace them after three months. To up the intensity of the fragrance, pop extra rattan sticks into the jar. Five rattan sticks will really help the fragrance reach the senses of your guests!
