If you’re looking to bring a little piece of this enchanting region of France into your home, I have just the solution. Enter La Box Made in Provence, one of France’s coolest subscription box concepts that will without a doubt cheer you up with artisan products from sunny Provence. From bath and personal care products to culinary delicacies to other little treats and sweets, the Provence lifestyle comes through in each and every themed box. And another cool tidbit of info?

Their site explains that they have “…a true respect of our local producers and their prices. Because we believe that the concept of living well should benefit everybody.” Amen.
OK, two things stood out to me about La Box Made In Provence.
1: When I first saw their website, I was immediately impressed. It was well-designed, fit the brand perfectly and you immediately got a feel for what the company was about through the colors, font and overall look of the site. Well done.
2: When I received the box in the mail, the presentation was really nice and came with a business card on the front tied on by twine and decorated with washi tape. So the product mirrored the feel of the website and that’s always a good thing. First impression? A+.
What’s inside? 5 awesome Provence France products:
Upon opening the August box, I was greeted by a fig-themed selection of five Provence France products.
Here’s what the August La Box Made in Provence contained:
- A fig-scented candle
- A fig-grape bar of soap from Le Chatelard 1802
- Fig preserves au muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise from Lou Rigalou
- Bottle of black fig juice from Caromb de La Table des Lutins
- A fig candy from Lilamand
Cost: 29 euros/month plus shipping. There’s no commitment or contract.
As I said above, the packaging and design is eye-catching and perfectly fits the brand. The quality and selection of products is top notch and you really get a feel for Provence through the products. Great to treat yourself or someone special in your life.
For now, La Box Made in Provence is only available to Provence lovers who reside in France. Bummer, I know.
Bottom line: If you’re a lover of Provence, specialty products or are looking for an awesome gift idea, La Box Made in Provence will not disappoint.
