Sometimes, it’s the most simple of things that provide the most pleasure. I’m liking this brand more and more by the day as I uncover their products – Durance Summer Fig Soap is the embodiment of a simple joy. The soap has that really clean scent that French soaps tend to have – but also very gentle notes of sweet fig that are released into the lather. When I think about the handwashes and soaps we already have in the house, they’re actually quite highly scented – I have Molton Brown Rhubarb & Rose in the kitchen and much as I like it, even Mr BBB is asking how long it will take to finish because there’s only so much rhubarb any one man can take!
It’s only a little soap, but Durance Summer Fig Soap is packed with elegance – it smells of clean, summer days in the garden. At EU4.90, a perfect treat. Durance used to be in John Lewis – why they let it go is a mystery because it’s such a lovely brand. As things stand, you have to get it from the website.
