We’ve all got a memory or two of hopefully what is a fun or poignant time in our lives. Dancing on the beach with family, long, lazy lunches with your best friend, or just that random occurrence that turned into a “memory”. Typically attached to that memory is a scent. I, for example, have instant memories of my grandmother whenever I get a whiff of the famed Chanel no. 5 fragrance. It’s all my granny wore and it consistently takes me back to my younger days of watching her get “dressed” up.
How about sweet oranges and lemons combined with the craftmanship of soap makers in Grasse, France? Abby Fazio, pharmacist and owner of New York City’s New London Pharmacy and all-around lifestyle enthusiast has channeled her favorite childhood scents into a generous, triple-milled bar soap that works for face and body. Being Greek, she is no stranger to the power of things natural. And while Greece may nearly have it all, a French family of soapmakers have perfected the craft and worked with Abby to produce a signature soap for New London Pharmacy.
“I wanted the best”, Abby told me. “The organge verte scent instantly reminds me of the orange trees in my backyard in Corfu, Greece, where I grew up. The freshness of the orange combined with green earthiness is a smell like no other and instantly transports me back to the time and place.”
This luxury soap is 100 percent natural, vegan, and contains sweet almond oil which will work to sooth even the dryest skin and is also suitable for eczema sufferers. With winter howling down on us, there is no better time to give (and receive!) this bar soap a try. Packaged in a sturdy, signature New London gift box, it is a generous gift to give year round.
