Lux Bath
By Melissa Miller




For a fun and unique array of bath and body items check out Lux Bath. The lovely founder and owner, Tamera Duckett, prides herself on seeking out little known or hard-to-find European and American brands, as well as finding specific items for the needs of her customers.

She has succeeded admirably with an impressive range of quality products that include such European delights as Harmonie Blanche shower gels and body lotions and Roger & Gallet Les Doux Nature Collection.

I had the pleasure of sampling the exquisite French line Exquises Tentations in the enchanting Violette de Paris fragrance in Hair and Body Wash ($28 for 16oz), Body Lotion ($33.00 for 16oz), Body Powder ($33.00 for 8oz), Bath Salts ($12.00 for 2 envelopes), Soap Exquises Tentations ($7.50) and Body Mist ($26.00 for 8oz).

Whether you enjoy florals or not, this fresh violet scent is simply transcendent; itís a must have. Packaged in striking silver canisters with Victorian illustrations, these products are perfect to give as gifts or strategically place around your home.

The Exquises Tentations range is also available in a Pamplemouse Vanille (a lush grapefruit vanilla), Tendre est la Nuit (a sensual jasmine and primrose blend), Dimanche Š la Campagne (an unisex herbal scent), and Marina Blue (citrus, floral and wood).

A must try is Friction de Foucaud Invigorating Tonic ($20.00 for 8.8oz). Created in 1946, this refreshing tonic will absolutely rejuvenate sagging spirits and bodies! Youíll never try anything quite like it. Give this to friends who are exercise fanatics and they will thank you profusely. The range also contains a Foot Cream ($15.00 for 1.7oz) and Massage Oil ($20.00 for 8.8oz).

And, no well-stocked bathroom would be complete without an item from Gianna Rose Atelier. Iím smitten with the Pear Cream and Body Scrub ($34.00 for the set, 4 oz. each). The Pear Cream is a rich, whipped mix of almond oil, shea butter and pear concentrate; the Body Scrub is a blend of sea extracts, rosemary, pumice and apricot kernels.

The glamorous Gianna Rose range includes body lotion, soap and candles. Lux Bath also carries a personal favorite, Doux Liquide de Marseille Hand Soap in Lavender ($12.00 for 400ml). This gentle soap with a natural mix of oils is perfect for sensitive skin and dry hands.

Also popular are products from the Kala Corporation. These Italian and Spanish products embody old world apothecary charm with antique packaging. Kala makes the adorable Perfumeria Gal Lip Balms ($6.00) in flavors including Red Currant and Pear, the famous Roberts Rosewater ($6.00) that can be used as a splash, toner or lingerie wash, Valobra Al Burro Di Cacao (cocoa butter) and Calendula Soaps ($8.50), and Vivace Lip Gloss in Cherry, Chocolate or Coconut ($10.00).

Lux Bath also carries Edith Mezard, Erbaviva, Cake Beauty, Star and Rose, Good Home Co., Aromafloria, Tipton Charles, Dirty Girl, Du Wop, get fresh!, We Live This and Davies Gate, among others.
