My favorite soap, as much for its color as its smell. A super minimalist gift! Pears Soap.
mmm …ça donne envie! je sens presque l’odeur d’ici!
Oh qu’il est mignon ! ” That is a sweet baby ” comme dirait une de mes amies !!
p.s/ dans mon imaginaire, il aurait une odeur un peu épicé (laisse moi rêver Garance …;)
I prefer the original Pears Soap (before Unilever changed the ingredients). The original is hard to find! *sigh*

Aurais-tu par hasard achete un libre de citations de Mae West?
very pretty photo. I love these clear soaps when the light hits them.
love mae west.
savon pour les mains?
My fave too. But in Australia, packaging does need a re-brand. Something that embodies that magical, warm, soapy aroma!
à Paris, il est 00:32, il fait froid il pleut, je rentre s’une soirée de boulot… mmm !! ce beau savon… je file sous une bonne douche bien chaude !! dommage que l’on est pas l’odeur avec la photo, ce savon ressemble a un bonbon au miel… bon arrêtons les divagations nocturnes… au lit !
bonne nuit ;)
Bonne idee -ou se trouve la salle de bain?
Soaps can be some of the most wonderfully smelling gifts to fill a stocking. LOVE IT!
I’ll bet that smells amazing!
It must smell amazing!
The smell always reminds me of my grandmother. She always had Pears in the bathroom. I miss her.
totally wish i could take a bath right now! what a relaxing luxury.
Good old Pears! Brings back good memories too!
Au premier regard, j’ai cru que c’était un bonbon au miel recraché, tout plein de bave blanche ! Mais en réfléchissant 1/2 seconde, je me suis dit que ceci n’avait pas sa place sur le blog de Garance Doré, alors j’ai compris que c’était un savon ! :) Mais un savon qui donne envie de croquer dedans !!!
hoo quel joli savon =)
Je me demandais si une douche à l’italienne, bien grande et sexy, suffirait dans la salle de bain de mon appartement à moi que j’ai acheté et qu’on va tout casser pour refaire top… si si, celui qui justifie le no-shopping fashion pour les 30 ans à venir… et ben tu m’as convaincue. Il me faut une baignoire !
The best and relaxing moment after a day of work…
A really warm bath that’s luxury ! http://www.fut-il.com
@Sarah – hah! I just brought a couple of bars back in my “expat supplies shopping” – and was disappointed in the smell, thinking it seemed different, but told myself it was just me.
I WAS RIGHT! THEY”RE OUT TO SPOIL EVERYTHING!
I agree with Sarah!
ahhh mon savon préféré! je l’utilisé quand je vivais en Angleterre…
ooops, je l’utilisAIS!!!! pas é!
Ah j’adore les savons et j’adore les offrir. Il y en a tellement de supers dans tous les genres!
Mine would be from Compagnie de Provence.
Ah yes! That is exactly why I absolutely adore those few precious moments of soliture in a bath.
Have a beautiful weekend Garance.
this has always, always been one of my favorites too. and now unilever has changed it?!
French eco-friendly fashion
oh i love the photo :) you captured the soapiness perfectly :)
Il m’a l’air de sentir très bon ! Chouette photo :)
tout à fait d’accord avec mae west. j’adore la photo garance! c’est de ces savons que l’on a envie de manger. j’aimerais bien l’essayer… juste pour le bain bien sûr .)
I love this soap also! But everyone else in the house hates it so I have to use it separately. They say it smells like medicine at the hospital but it relaxes me and I love how long the scent stays on my skin!
Minimalist I’ll say…they sell it at The Dollar Store here in the Midwest. :)
that’s my all time favourite, i use it to wash my face too!
My mum has always made sure my siblings and I used Pears since the beginning of time!! Still use it to this day! Lovely picture Garance!!
I love all the Mae West quotes lately :) Very appropriate. I also love gifting soaps for the holidays. Indulgent, yet useful- but not “practical” (because, really, no one wants to receive a practical gift).
Dear Garance Dore,
I wanna be just like you when i grow up! :D
You are funny, smart and beautiful. Who needs more? :)
Clear soaps are beautiful. And I can imagine how great it smells.
Have fun while bathing, now in winter every day is great for a bath. :)
Amazing blog !!!. Would you like to follow each other? My blog is abiut fashion, as I promote spanish designers in the Middle East, style and my experience as a western woman in Qatar!
so true! I use to use them when I was little and recently got one of the blue ones for my apartment and it always reminds me of my childhood days at home :)
haha…this is my mother’s quote!!! And it works for me each and every single time! <3
thanks for featuring Pears… especially since, as Ursula notes, it’s now relegated to the drugstore with L’Aimant & Emeraude. though we at the dollar store deserve any luxury we can get nowadays…
right out of the package it DID smell different (and when they used to make it ‘by order of her majesty the Queen’s mother’, wasn’t it made in Britain rather than India?) but after a few washings it settled down to the more subtle aroma… which I still adore.
personally I prefer ye olde stamp on the reverse, but thanks for capturing the simple exquisiteness of it.
Preparing a relaxing bath means candles, hot water, bubbles, essencial oils, soft music,…….so to much time to practice every day. I suggest a 10 minutes massage with the massage device called Masster Plus, tme enough to relax all your muscles and daily cervical pressure. How it works? Look at the website http://www.fit4ever.es and ask for a personal demonstration.
