Okay, it may seem ridiculous to highlight soap...seriously, one can't visit Marseille without buying some “savon de Marseille”. It’s gentle enough for your face, yet powerful enough to use in your laundry. It’s been produced for about 600 years – they know what they are doing!
You can find it anywhere (supermarkets, fine boutiques, street vendors), anywhere you look, in almost any scent. Shop around for the best price (don’t pay too much at a boutique!) Track some down before leaving town!

What makes the “savon de Marseille” so different? The secret must be in the sea water or vegetable oils or olive oils it’s mixed with. Or maybe it’s the addition of soda ash. Whatever it is, definitely pick some up. It’s good stuff.
