From Floris London, Rose Geranium Luxury Soap: "The characteristic notes of geranium are enhanced by fresh citrus nuances and a hint of rose.

Finely fragranced signature soaps, hand wrapped and triple milled with a vegetable base producing a rich creamy lather and containing added shea butter to help moisturise the skin.
