Why The Classic Feels Fresh!

These Aren't Your Grandma's Bar Soaps!
Why The Classic Feels Fresh!
Bar soap--your grandmother's go-to powder room accessory--is having something of a renaissance. AdAge reports that its sales are up 5 percent this year, with no signs of slowing down, and more and more brands (even Chanel!) are releasing beautifully wrapped versions. They're surprisingly multi-purpose; from washing your hands to perfuming your linen closet and serving as a perfect hostess gift or party favor, hard soaps are the kind of thing you want to have on hand. Luckily, they come in a variety of shapes and colors, both fancy and rustic, already wrapped to perfection. We've pictured our favorites above.1. Chanel No. 5 Bath Soap ($25)

2. Santa Maria Novella Pomegranate Soap ($17)

3. Malin + Goetz Lime Bar Soap ($10)

4. Mor Black Cherry Plum Soap ($14)

5. Dr. Harris & Co. Arlington Soap Bowl ($21)

6. Valobra Balsamo Soap ($18)

7. Swedish Dream Sea Salt Soap ($6)

8. Hotel Costes Soap ($25)
