Marionnaud takes a dip

French perfumery chain Marionnaud has launched a new private-label bath range, Marionnaud Bain.

The range, currently 50-skus strong, comprises soaps, gels and body lotions, and features retro-style packaging inspired by traditional perfumerie. There are three scents in the range, all of which are identified by numbers signifying the number of tests it took to obtain the right fragrance: 49 Rose Sensuelle has notes of rose, white peony, violet and purple freesia; 21 Grenade Passion (pomegranate and passionfruit) has head notes of pomegranate and blackberry, heart notes of freesia and peony, and base notes of vanilla and white musk; and 09 Fraîche Infusion has citrus, fruity and spicy head notes; heart notes of jasmine, freesia and green tea, and base notes of cedar and musk. Two other scents, 35 Mango Sunrise and 63 Candy Gourmand, are due to follow.

All the fragrances were created by perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin of Firmenich. To promote the range, Marionnaud is featuring an interview with Pellegrin on its website, explaining how the collaboration came about and how the fragrances were decided upon.

Pricing is modest, at €7.90 for a 250ml bath and shower gel, and €10.90 for a 250ml milky bath oil. The range is available form Marionnaud stores across France.
