Le Secret de Manon was born in the Luberon hills, one of the wildest and prettiest areas of Provence. I came back to the hills where I grew up, after 17 years abroad, mostly spent in large cities and in concrete buildings. I didn't think I would ever come back, and then we did it, my husband, our two little boys and I.
We take our inspiration from the local way of life. Our way of life. We live in a village with 3000 inhabitants, 2 bakeries, 3 cafés and many charming ancient doors and walls. We enjoy every bit of it.
With Le Secret de Manon we wanted to give birth to products that are truly artisanally made, in small batches, on old machines and with lots of human love. We were lucky to find a wonderful soap factory that is still "doing it" the old-fashioned way.
Our scents are reminiscent of my childhood memories. I believe these were the scents of my grand-mothers and their homes, or at least what I can remember of it. But as I was letting my friends smell the prototypes, it appears that they awakened childhood memories for almost all of them too. Things I cannot explain...
Le Secret de Manon's mission is to offer a range of natural skincare that is artisanally produced and based on traditional know-how. Effective natural ingredients combined with scents awakening childhood memories make our products special and covetable. We hope you will love them as much as we do.
Our philosophy is that of simplicity and authenticity, resulting in products that inspires the soul and pleasures the heart.
