Anyway, imagine my surprise and delight to stumble upon a Fruits & Passion store here in Scottsdale! For those of you who don't know F&P, its a Canadian retailer and producer of wonderful bath, body and home products. I love it because the smells are very light and fresh - not at all overpowering.
Here is the storefront. Fruits and Passion is headquartered in Quebec and I found the look and feel of the boutique to be 100% consistent with what I had experienced in Canada. Even better, because it was Black Friday, everything in the store was 40% off and if you spent $40 you got a 500 ml bottle of hand soap.
I thought these little mini bubble baths in holiday light bottles were so cute I bought some to use as stocking stuffers and I bought a few candles in my favourite scent - orange cantaloupe. S gets to benefit from the $42 I spent and keep the olive oil handsoap.
If you are wondering how the holidays feel in the desert check out this cute Christmas bear hanging out among the agave plants!
