Murder on the Orange Express Soap Bar

€10

A seductive meeting of alluring florals and sparkling citrus.

The story: The mysterious Orient Express has influenced many writers, notably Agatha Christie and Ian Fleming. This scent hints at intrigue and opulence with its exquisite combination of mandarin, rose geranium and ylang-ylang, with a whisper of dark and decadent patchouli.

The product: A great cleansing bar for face, hands and body. The presence of activated charcoal makes it particularly good for acne, blemish-prone and oily skin.

Try this if you love

  • Film noir, spy novels and mystery books
  • Clever and dangerous heroines
  • Sweet and long-lasting florals

Vegan. Plastic-free. No artificial fragrance.
