#Bagaholicbébé: 4 Designer Soap Bars To Lather Up With



Some of your favourite brands are raising the bar by showering the utilitarian soap bar with aesthetics, nourishing ingredients and fragrance notes for a truly sensorial bath experience. Can’t wait to lather up in luxury? Here are four designer soap bars that will transform your daily shower routine into an indulgent experience.

01  Balenciaga Soap In Dark Grey, SGD310
The embossing on this coolly named soap in a dark grey hue is enough to elevate any shower. But it doesn’t stop there. Accompanying the made-in-Italy soap is a lookalike travel box designed by Panter & Tourron. The stylish yet functional accessory lets you take the soap with you on all your adventures.

Once you’re out of soap, you pop in a refill (SGD110) of the soap that boasts notes of frankincense, tobacco, paper, leather, silk, oak and sewing machine oil. Or simply reuse the box as storage for bits and bobs. BALENCIAGA

02  Celine Perfumed Soaps Set, SGD165
Available in the maison’s emblematic scents, like Celeste, Parade and La Peau Nue, Celine’s scented soaps set a base layer for your favourite haute parfumerie fragrances. Handcrafted by French soap makers, the soaps contain sweet almond oil and vegetable glycerin to gently cleanse, while leaving skin soft and delicately scented with a powdery elegance.

Each set contains three olfactory delights whose shape echos the faceted cap of the perfume bottles. They also feature engravings of the iconic Triomphe emblem on one side and the fragrance name on the other. CELINE

03  Chanel N°5 The Bath Soap, SGD51
The formulation of this palm-size oval soap bar acts as a sensual continuation of the N°5 floral bouquet. It works in the shower to gently cleanse, while leaving behind a smooth harmony of rose and jasmine. Use it alone to delicately infuse your skin with the iconic floral-aldehyde blend.

Its minimalist beige egg-shape appearance that features an embossing of the N°5 logo also makes it an easy addition to any bathroom. To prolong the luxurious experience, follow it with your favourite N°5 perfume. CHANEL

04  Loewe Tomato Leaves Bar Soap, SGD90
This magic trick of a bar does it all to cleanse, nourish and exfoliate at the same time. It carries a fresh fragrance that evokes the verdant aroma of tomato vines just before they burst into fruit. As a bonus, an integrated rope makes it easier to hold while you lather up while allowing for convenient hang-drying.

The block-shape cleansing soap also features several ingredients with nourishing properties. There are exfoliating particles of antioxidant-rich red algae to fight inflammation and dryness. The inclusion of nourishing shea butter also soothes and deeply moisturises skin. LOEWE
