Lothantique Bath Products

This beautiful bath and body collection caters to the most basic human needs of touch and smell. Based in Haute-Provence, Lothantique uses modern-day compositions with time-honored techniques. Natural fragrances and simple, recycled-material packaging characterize this earth-conscious company. And there are absolutely no animal products or testing. Lothantique french bath products make great gifts, as well as decorative accessories for the bath.

Infused with rich spirit and history, Denis and Dominique Vogade carry on the lifestyle founded by their grandparents with the creation of Lothantique, a modern company that combines old world Provencal tradition and formulas with contemporary technology. Selecting only the finest ingredients from around the world, Lothantique re-creates the handmade quality and uniqueness of that earlier generation in order to bring you the finest selection of luxurious bath, beauty, and home fragrance products.

In the words of Denis Vogade, President of Lothantique and Grandson of the Vogades of Haute-Provence, “My goal is to use modern day compositions and processes, while remaining true to ancient, time-honoured techniques. And as an environmentally conscious company, we at Lothantique understand that everyday simple pleasures–fresh air, pure water, clean landscapes and a healthy ozone– are of the utmost importance and therefore we have taken the appropriate ethical measures to help preserve Mother Nature’s offerings.”

Quel Objet offers Lothantique in several products:

Bar soaps – Palm oil and shea butter-based for rich moisturizing while gently cleaning, lightly scented, and triple milled in the tradition of Savons de Marseille, which makes for long lasting soaps.

Liquid soaps – The liquid soaps are a liquid version of the bar soaps, not diluted with water and gels as so many other liquid soaps. And because they are not made with fillers, you only need to pump once, thus using much less each time and making the bottle last longer.

Foam Baths are infused with their signature fragrances. Pour a little into hot bath water and enjoy a rich soothing bath that leaves skin soft and very gently perfumed. These foam baths are available in 16.66 oz and have five choices of fragrance – Lavender, Verbena, Green Tea, Grapefruit and Marine.

Hand Cream contains shea butter, and is an excellent treatment for dry and cracked hands. This cream is light enough for every day use and comes handy in a metal squeeze tube which is convenient for travel or easy to carry in a purse.

Lothantique Eau De Toilette – The eaux de toilettes are clear refreshing single-note fragrances-just a lightclear scent, not heavy or overpowering. Currenlty available in lavender and grapefruit.

So slow down, take time to breathe and transport yourself to the gardens of Haute-Provence with us at Quel Objet.

Espadrilles: Stylish Casual and Oh-So French

Espadrilles, those wonderful casual warm weather shoes, were originally made of rope and canvas in the Pyrenees of France and Spain. The French name espadrille is derived from the Catalan word, espardenya, which refers to a tough grass used for weaving the ropes that form the bottom of the shoes. Today, most espadrilles have longer lasting rubber soles, with the rope primarily as a decorative feature and a nod to its history.Although other styles are made with wedge heels or ties around the ankles or open toes, Quel Objet stays with the traditional flat sole and closed canvas uppers.

In the past the upper canvas might have been a single solid color or perhaps a sober stripe. Today’s espadrilles feature bold stripes in brilliant, happy colors—especially those from Artiga and Les Toiles du Soleil, two of Quel Objet’s main suppliers from the Southwest of France. (Les Toiles du Soleil is high up in the mountains of the eastern Pyrenees, near the Spanish border, while Artiga is in the foothills at the western end of the Pyrenees.) It is these vivid colors in the sophisticated stripes that distinguish these espadrilles from all others.

Espadrilles Sizzle Stripes

Espadrilles first became popular in the U.S. in the 1940’s when Lauren Bacall wore them in Key Largo. Since then they’ve have gone in and out of fashion, but have resurged in popularity, especially since the introduction of the brightly striped styles.

Your biggest surprise will occur when you first take them out of the box. Which is right and which is left? No matter; they are the same. After a few hours of wearing, they will mold to the shape of your feet. And so comfortable, almost like going barefoot, these simple shoes look great at all but the dressiest occasions.
