The best longest lasting soaps out there hands down!
September 13, 2016
Can't beat these French soaps. They look all foo foo but smell good and more importantly work well and last at least 5 times longer than store soaps. Also if you still use bar soap for showering like I do don't you hate how little the store soaps are now. Even safeguard that used to be a large soap has shrunk to a useless size. Some of these soaps are almost too large to hold in my large mans sized hand. They cost around $8 to $9 dollars each but are worth it because of how long they last and how good they smell. The lady's will like the feel and smell of you skin as well. There are some nice herb and citrus fragrances but even the rose is nice. Are you manly enough to try these? You won't be disappointed.
Amazing Gift Idea!
May 1, 2016
I picked this up for my Co-Worker as a supplement to a birthday gift.Verity is great, soaps smell amazing, she loved the idea of using different soap each week.Packaging of the idea is great too! I would not even gift wrap it. just tie a bow around it!Highly recommend this item!And this companies soaps.
EXCELLENT FIND FOR THE PRICE.
November 25, 2015
Was looking for a small gift for a friend. These soaps are packaged nicely and smell lovely. Perfect for a powder room.
Will buy again

My girls love choosing a scent. They are finely milled and lather very nicely.
The soap set is small but quite nice (high quality soap/scents)
April 3, 2015
The soap set is small but quite nice (high quality soap/scents). There had been some reviews mentioning size, so I've attached photos showing the actual size. I think they're perfect for guest use and certainly on par with guest soaps found in hotels, although a much higher quality.The soaps are not individually wrapped but I didn't find this to be an issue.
Beautifully fragrant!
May 30, 2013
Purchased this set for two reasons...first I wanted to try several scents of this soap, and secondly, when traveling, I hate using horrible hotel soaps which irritate my skin, and wanted to add a little comfort and luxury to my travels. The perfume from these soaps is amazing, It just flooded out and hit me as I was opening the package...even before I had even opened the plastic bag and beautiful storage box inside. I loved all the scents, which I did not expect, as I'm more of a floral girl, and did not think I would like the sage, verbena or coconut much...but they were all beautiful. I am planning on using traditional Savon de Marseilles soap for daily use, to see if it will help my dry itchy skin, as I expect the Pre de Provence soaps may be a little drying, but absolutely perfect for use while traveling...and of course don't count towards your 'liquids' allowance, leaving more room in that quart Baggie for other stuff! Ordinary shower gels only leave you feeling clean for a very short while, but I find traditional soaps give you a clean feeling that lasts for hours....as a nurse working 12 hour shifts and getting exposed to unpleasant smells and body fluids, I really, really appreciate that lasting feeling of clean, and it is also so lovely to use when I get home from a long shift and need to feel like a girl again :)

Love them.

I keep several of the on hand to use as house gifts, hostess gifts and for other occassions. People love them.
Nice small soaps
November 9, 2016
Smell great and are high quality, I wish they were a little bigger, but I used as a stocking stuffer for my daughter in law. She used them as guest soaps. I am big on the French soaps in my home, so these were perfect to introduce a love one to the world of high quality French soap.
Perfect small size for guest bathrooms
July 20, 2016
Perfect small size for guest bathrooms. I hate throwing out soap, but it seems rude to expect guests to use a soap that someone else has used first. These are small and smell good, so I can change them out after guests leave. (We get a lot of company!) I have liquid soap, but sometimes people like bar soap. This fit the bill!
Great gift idea, and good price
July 3, 2016
This is a nice selection of scents. The soap lathers well and doesn't bother my sensitive skin. The samples aren't that small. I get several showers from each one. Of course, there are a few scents I don't care for, but I really like the milk and linden soaps. It's a good way to sample before buying a full size bar. The package is very pretty. This would be a grand gift for teachers or anyone you want to thank. Definitely worth it.
Great product but unfortunately changed since my last order
May 2, 2016
They've changed the box since I ordered mine. I do not like the current box nearly as much as I liked one that I got with my order. And when I ordered they also offered gift wrap. The giftwrap was a great option and I really appreciate it. But apparently it is no longer available.I found the gift wrapped box to be a great reserve gift, that I could store and have available whenever needed.The soaps are great and I would reorder around a dozen of these again, if only they were still using the same beautiful box and still offering gift wrap.

I ordered sets of the full size bars last year for Christmas. They come sealed in plastic but you can still smell them, even then. I haven't actually used them, but they make a nice gift. I decided to get a set of these for my boyfriend's grandma this time. The only thing I didn't like is that even though I had expected them to be small, they were even smaller than I had originally thought. There are, however, so many different scents that I think that makes up for them being so tiny. I would say they kind of like hotel soap size, so if you're wanting something a bit larger I would just go with a full size bar. Also, the packaging is always beautiful on these products and that alone makes it very easy to gift.

Very small size!
September 7, 2016
Didn't realize it's so small!!! Very small!!!
Ok, but nothing special
July 14, 2016
Very mild scents, and I can't tell one from another. Fine as guest soaps, pretty without being fancy-schmancy looking. If you are looking for a size comparison, they are about the size of a Triscuit cracker, maybe about 3 crackers tall.They do have a very nice feel to them and don't leave a soapy residue feeling on your skin. The packaging was nice, but this would not be a good gift.

February 29, 2016
We like the soaps but they were meant to be decorative and the packaging let the soaps bang around and chip each other. Once we opened the box a bunch of soap flakes poured out and several are attached to the other bars in the pack. Would have been nice to see them individually wrapped to avoid this. Not the fault of the shipper more the manufacturer packing.

February 7, 2016
I was in a rush so I ordered this product with a one-day shipping. It arrived on time which is great, but I wasn't very satisfied with how the box looked. The soaps smell very good and come in a set of nice colors. Their size was what I was expecting; the soaps didn't seem tiny to me. My problem was with the box the soaps were in. It seemed to "have lived". It didn't seemed new. The lid was very loose with a side a little bit misshaped. Also, I would have expected this product to be wrapped and sealed in plastic but it wasn't. I was very disappointed as I had ordered this item as a gift. I didn't have time to order a new one so I just kept it and found a nice way to wrap it. I liked the product but was disappointed with the package. I would probably order it again if it is for my own use, but not for a gift.
Super small
January 2, 2016
Powerully fragrant but very small. The whole box fits in your hand. Might be good as a hostess gift but not so much as a real gift if you get my drift.
Quite small and smells intermingle
January 17, 2014
I bought four of these as gifts. I was disappointed because they were quite small: each soap was only about 1 square inch! All 9 soaps were packed into the box with no individual wrapping: so there were no distinct individual fragrances. I would have been happy to get this for $9.99 but not for $19.99.

Too tiny to test!
July 15, 2017
All that to find out I really only like Honey Almond. There were some good ones in there but without enough of the soap to get a good lather, it's difficult to say. I have purchased a full bar of the Honey Almond and it is amazing. It has a great scent and gentle exploitation for all parts of the body. It's great for everyday use and makeup removal. As far as the other soaps in this package, it's really hard to get an impression with it being so tiny.
Buyer be war
May 3, 2016
buyer be aware that he soaps are very small. I know seller states 25g but unless you have a real idea of the size / weight, purchaser maybe in for a surprise!!!
Not worth the $
February 4, 2016
There was no way to tell which soap is which, no list and nothing on the soap except color but since they were not individually wrapped they all smell the same - sweetly sickening. Also misunderstood the word "natural" - scenting is not natural, essential oils are natural - these are not essential oils and milled just means the glycerin has been removed. They ARE soap but you might as well put a bottle of Dawn in the guest shower.
Super small soap!
May 27, 2014
I love this particular brand of soap, but I didn't really it would be SO TINY. Each piece is about 1 square inch of soap which means that they are sample size and too small to be used as guest soap without looking silly in a regular soap dish. This is more of a novelty sample set in my opinion.
Big disappointment!
May 21, 2014
Again, these guest soaps did not smell like the pre de provence soaps I've been buying for years. I gave them two stars as they are pretty, and they do lather up well. The linden scent soap is one I love to use in a guest bathroom as the smell is so natural and fresh, but the smell of the linden sample in this one is nothing like that. I would not recommend these soaps. I wonder if they are either years and years old or just knockoffs.
Too small
March 23, 2014
Soaps are too small to grip, will buy the bigger soaps next time. Like the scents and color mixture just wish they were bigger.

I found the picture highly misleading. The bars of soap were tiny. I bought this product as a holiday gift to my friend. While the smell and quality were nice, the amount you receive is not worth the price you pay for the product. Everything about it is cute and pretty--it would just be better if they were also bigger and individually wrapped.
