package design: 3 loves *soap
"Love" is a strong word but... my eyes have a hard time steering away from all the graphic design eye candy that comes with interesting packaging. Sometimes I even have to make purchases purely based on "needing" the wrapper. That's right "needing" the wrapper. I like to think of my habit as an R&D (research & development) investment, but perhaps maybe my wrapper collecting is more of a fetish? Whatever the enigma, here are three packages that have me swooning.
This last one I stocked up on (read: hoarded) at a market in Paris, they made the perfect travel gift for my friends and family back home, at a very reasonable price. I was particularly interested in this Apricot & Basil scented one, but also adored the periwinkle blue "Pin & Criste Marine" or "Pine & Sea Fennel" scent/bottle. They have a "Red Currant & Cherry Tomato" (?!) scent featured on their website, along with a commercial in french if you would like to feel frenchy for 18 seconds.
