To celebrate the success of their smash hit “Springtime in Paris” lilac soap, it was “Une Nuit à Paris”, just like the press release said it would be. There were macarons, madeleines, champagne, lavender shortbread (made by Anne’s mom!) candlelight and in true Dot & Lil fashion, antique china teacups everywhere.
If I couldn’t actually be in Paris, Anne Dardick and her wonderful team certainly made me feel like I was, even for one evening, and I got to sample the most scrumptuous new handmade bath and beauty products. The Montréal based company always adds a vintage twist to their yummy smelling lines, made right here in their atelier and the results are one of my favourite new discoveries – très chouette!
New for Fall/ Winter, “Apple for the Teacher” Green Tea & Linden Flower soaps are great for back to school and the design is way too cute to pass up! The very latest scent is Winter Tangerine and Mint but the most exciting new development is a vegetable oil based face serum which feels oh-so-silky on your skin and requires a tiny drop for amazing results.
Returning favourites this season include Sugar n’ Spice, Vanilla and Calendula, and Lemon and Sage. The final touches and details are so unique, such as blue cornflowers in the new Winter soap. These yummy new products are available online as of August 21st . Look for the new packaging for the cutest “Petit Oiseau” soaps.
The perfect gifts for others or spoil yourself with the lip balms, soaps, perfume oil sprays, bath truffles or my absolute favourite – their body butter and much more. Just in time for the Holidays, you absolutely MUST check them out!
What a great event!
Thanks Anne! Thanks Gwyneth!
Because I can’t stress enough how much you need to try this stuff…
