Eau de Bonpoint is a gentle scent made with babies in mind—as well as their mothers. Julia Restoin Roitfeld and Daphné Hezard both wear Bonpoint's classic fragrance, which combines citrus with not-flowery florals. The sweet, tangy scent has also long come as a body lotion (Bonpoint Crème Corps) that leaves skin so moisturized that you shine in a good, greased up way for a couple minutes before it sinks in. This is moisturizer at its finest.
Packaged in a sturdy tub, the only real problem with it is that you'll run out of the stuff pretty quickly, especially if you keep it within arm's reach of where you like to do your moisturizing. No matter how much you put on (you don't need to overdo it in order to achieve optimal skin softness, but it's easy to get carried away), it'll leave you smelling good, kind of like what a daisy would smell like if it actually had a relevant scent and didn't smell like nothing. Clean, but not clinical—it's never too much, but sometimes, over the course of the day, it's not enough. Fortunately, they will soon also offer a hand cream version, which is good news for those who want to take that scent with them. Read: most of us, from babies to beauty editors.
