L'Amande - tried and true

I have been the proud distributer of L'Amande in Australia now for a whole 3 months. It is being stocked in some very fine retail establishments (contact me if you would like to know where) and I have had the pleasure of using some of the products in the range. Now I am certainly no expert, but I am lucky enough to have people near and dear to me who are and we all agree that it is the bomb. The soap lasts for months in the shower (we are a family of 5) and has a beautiful creamy lather,...

L'Amande Enfant

L'Amande makes a really beautiful baby range called L'Amande Enfant.

The packaging is very cute as well making it a perfect gift. I will get it up on the website soon.... In stock next month. Ciao K

The collection is tight with two styles, short and long sleeved and five colours. They are all finished with very stylish detailing...

L'Amande

So my newest baby (aside from my actual babies) is the Italian brand L'Amande. L'Amande is all made in Savona a beautiful medieval town on the Ligurian see just near the border with France. L'Amande is an old brand, over 130 years and encompasses another couple of soap companies from the area; namely Gavarry and Rexol. It is really lovely to represent a brand like L'Amande.  Every time I go online or look at Instagram it seems there is a new brand or company that is the latest must have. So to establish ties and relationships with a company that...
