Crafted in Provence

For years, I’ve been a fan of FRÉDÉRIC FEKKAI’S shea butter products, so I was excited to learn recently about how he and his wife, Shirin, restored Domaine Chantecler in his hometown of Provence. It was during their various trips there to renovate their chateau that the Fekkais learned the cult French brand Cote Bastide was in need of help, so they bought the company, renamed it simply BASTIDE and created a collection of cleaner, more artisinal home and beauty products that are good for us and respectful of the environment with no toxic or irrating chemicals. All the lotions, oils, soaps, candles and potpurri crystals smell divine, but my favorites are the Fleur d’Oranger hand cream, Fig D’Ete candle, and Fig D’Ete hand and body lotion. Now, if they’d make a Fleur d’Oranger candle, I’d be all set. Fingers crossed!
