There is no doubt that traveling enriches our lives, but let’s admit it: taking to the road (or the skies) can also be a bit of a hassle. The easiest of tasks suddenly take on herculean dimensions as we leave the comfort of our homes. Take personal care, for instance. Often, there is not enough room in our suitcases for our collection of most beloved hygiene products. Some of us brave the weight and bulk, only to see our must-haves wrested away by security personnel. Finally, we’re left to fend for ourselves in public facilities — many stocked with uninspiring toiletries, some not stocked at all.
Is this a necessary price to pay for the joys of globetrotting?
L’Officine Universelle Buly, the upscale Parisian toiletries label, founded over a century ago, answers with a resounding no. With the launch of their new “scented soap sheets,” the brand reclaims for travelers the simple but profound pleasure of superbly-scented hands, en voyage as at home. Thin enough to be tucked “into the slimmest of handbags or between the pages of a book,” to use their own words, the sheets are infused with all the main ingredients that make soap soap, but completely dried out. Upon contact with water, the sheets melt, releasing those ingredients into bubbly liquid goodness. Where, then, does this delightful idea come from? The creative-minds at L’Officine Universelle Buly, of course, but also from the Japanese tradition of “Kami soap” — 紙 (Kami) meaning paper. A fusion of Western and Eastern aesthetics — and three tasteful scents — to keep your hands in tip-top condition across the globe.
