Sweet treats from Patisserie De Bain

How tempting does this selection of sweet treats from Patisserie de Bain look!? Patisserie de Bain (translated from French as ‘confectionery for the bath’) is a new brand from Rose & Co – a traditional British apothecary in the Yorkshire village of Haworth. Each piece is lovingly handmade in the UK from ingredients such as shea butter and almond oil and finished off with traditional English floral fragrances.
I was lucky enough to receive this hamper full of pretty Patisserie de Bain bath goodies* to try out, plus a selection of scented handcreams which I’ll talk about later in the post. The first thing to strike me was the packaging, the pale pastel colours and doily decorations really make the products look like something you’d find in a sweet shop.
Plus the products themselves look good enough to eat! Particularly this Cranberries & Cream Cupcake Soap, I think it looks like a real cake and with a warm berry fragrance it’s perfect for Winter. Actually this might be too pretty to actually wash with, I’m sure it’ll have pride of place on the bathroom sink for quite a while before I actually start to use it!
Next up is this amazing box of six Hand Made Bath Fancies. I think this is my favourite out of all the products, I just love the mix of pastel pink, lilac and blue flowers and the iridescent glitter that is sprinkled on top of each fancy. You just drop one into a running bath and it gently fizzes and melts away.
These would make amazing wedding favours too, you could open each box and individually wrap each fancy in tissue paper as an inexpensive treat for your guests. At £16 per box each fancy would work out at £2.66 each.
This set of Raspberry & Apple Crumble Hand Made Bath Fancies looks very festive, the green floral decoration makes them look quite Christmassy and the perfect stocking filler. When you drop the fancy into the running bath they fizz gently and release softening butters and fragrance into the water.
Slightly bigger that the fancies are these Pretty Hand Made Bath Tartlettes. These are the Rose and Vioette Café Paris variety, but they also come in four other fragrances including English Tea Room and Cranberries & Cream. Similar to the smaller fancies you just drop one into your bath and watch it fizz and melt away. Similar to a Lush Bath Bomb (but cheaper at just £7 for two!).
Finally we have a selection of sweet Hand Creams, I have tried out five from the collection (there are others available too). Each one is scented like a traditional type of English sweet, my favourite is Lemon Bon Bon – the cream is a very pale yellow and it smells sharp and citrusy like lemon sherbet!
I also love Sugared Violet, it smells just like Parma Violets sweets! And at just £3.99 each you can afford to buy one as a stocking filler for everyone on your Christmas list.
Some of the Hand Cream fragrances are also available in these cute little pots, again these would be perfect as wedding favours. This one is called Sweet As Cherry Pie and it has a strong maraschino cherry scent, personally I find this one a bit overpowering and strong so I use it very sparingly!
Overall I’m really impressed with this selection of sweetie themed goodies from Patisserie de Bain, and it’s great to support a fellow Yorkshire business. I love the bath fancies and tartlettes, they’re similar to Lush Bath Bombs but a bit smaller and much cheaper, and they’d look great as decoration on a shelf in a bathroom if you don’t want to use them. I’m planning to give away a couple of the Hand Creams to friends as Christmas stocking fillers, they’re a real novelty and smell good enough to eat!
