City Pulse

By Allison Warenik-Queenan

Since 1862 the Roger & Gallet house has presented the art of fine fragrance through their products which include fragrance, bath and body care. Their scents are derived from the distilling of rare plants and essential oils. Roger & Gallet’s beautifully boxed soap sets are in a class of their own, bringing the luxury of proper bathing and old-world perfume back to bathtubs around the world. Their products are exquisitely made in France, however, you fortunately do not have to go to France to get them. Now, they are available for you to purchase in select……Duane Reade stores.

I know. I can hardly believe it myself. Luxuriously scented French bath products in the cosmetic section of my local NYC drugstore? It’s true. And you are personally invited Friday and Saturday to come and experience Roger & Gallet for yourself. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Roger & Gallet will hand out sweet-smelling roses (in honor of their own Rose-scented products) with an exclusive card that’s redeemable for a free gift at select Duane Reade stores. Get a Roger & Gallet tote with any $20 purchase. Stock up for yourself and for all of the special women in your life. Roger & Gallet 3-piece soap box sets make the perfect Valentine’s gift at just $19 each. And they make me dream about having a porcelain claw foot tub of my own.
