‘What is elegance? Soap and water!’ wrote Cecil Beaton.


I agree with just soap and water and use 34 Boulevard Saint Germain by Diptyque Paris soap every day. Sometimes I use a bath oil for a long soak but it’s generally just this beautiful soap (and water).


I love its creamy colour, thick lather and its lingering scent. I also love the way it fills my home with its fragrance and the large bar lasts months.


If you’re looking for a gift idea for a guy or a girl, it’s super affordable. I LOVE it!
