Our Legends

The legends were born from the imagination of the owner of the Savonnerie des Diligences, Marie-Ève Lejour, a woman of letters and a bachelor of French studies, surrounded by her team. Each legend is accompanied by a soap and an original illustration created by Studio Sans Cravate.

This colossal, and at first glance completely crazy, project of associating a consumer product (soap) with art and creativity, has influenced the course of the Savonnerie des Diligences history. These soaps, which have created our distinction, now convey all the love, as well as all the creativity and intensity of joy that animates us.
