Founded by mother-daughter duo Hana and Sarah, Senteurs d’Orient’s soaps are inspired by “a shared passion for bathing rituals and a social cause close to our hearts”.
A company by women, for women
Driven by their shared entrepreneurial spirit, they set off to make empowering women at the heart of their brand DNA. They employ women in every tier of our company – from the founder to our chemists to the artisans – which is why we’ve teamed up with the United Nations Development Program to support women’s education in Lebanon. 10% of our sales go to support this initiative.
(Doing good = feeling good.)
Distilled by the master perfumers of Grasse, each creation captures the Orient’s most treasured blossoms and flowers.
Every fragrance is mixed with a high concentration of essential oils, making it work both on the mind and body for a sensorial and (very relaxing) experience.
Authentic because Senteurs soaps are lovingly handmade by local artisans, Natural because they only use naturally derived ingredients, Sensual because they capture rich aromas of the Orient.
What I love about Senteurs Hammam soaps (36$) is that they come in variety of scents – Amber (my favorite, pictured on the top), Orange blossom, Tuberose, Rose of Damascus and Jasmine of Arabia (pictured below) which has such an intense floral scent that I love hanging it in my closet. Makes everything smell so beautiful. Beside them smelling gorgeous they are also very gentle on skin and moisturizing – I have very dry skin on my body and so far no soap ever worked for me (no matter if it was labeled as “moisturizing” it would dry the hell out of my skin and leave me itchy and flaky). Senteurs hammam soaps leave my skin clean moisturized and so soft and silky to touch. My second favorite is Mint tea soap leaf (40$) – the most gorgeous minty uplifting scent that is perfect to use in the morning to awaken all the senses. Great for travel to or to use in guest bathroom.
Because even hand washing can be elevated to luxury experience level Senteurs created Ma’moul soap set (40$) -with designs inspired by traditional Lebanese pastries of the same name, Ma’amoul Soap is the perfect hand soap. Delightful Oriental fragrances in three appealing forms — square, round and oval, each pure vegetal soap is sculpted with our luscious filigree. This set includes miniatures of our Amber, Orange Blossom and Rose of Damascus pure vegetal soaps.
