Panier des Sens was created in 2001 in the heart of Provence. Inspired by Mediterranean ingredients and know-how, the brand uses the best of its region to develop natural, simple and authentic products. Dedicated to men, these all-in-one universal face and body care products are composed of 96 % to 100 % of naturally derived ingredients. Tested under dermatological control, they combine the moisturizing and repairing power of organic olive oil from Provence with a unique complex of active ingredients to combine naturalness and effectiveness.
In terms of packaging, the brand is also focusing on recycled packaging, without sacrificing perceived quality and the brand's high-end positioning. The packaging of bestsellers such as 500 ml liquid soaps or 75 ml hand creams become 100 % recycled. The brand announces the use of nearly 13 tons of recycled virgin plastic and 78 % of recycled alumunium.
But on the use side, do we find all these promises in the products?
The packaging is a real success. Nothing too much. Nothing cheap. The black and gold aesthetic and the "antique" side of the products asserts well that the target is male. And chic.
In terms of products, we were able to test a moisturizing cream which achieves a faultless performance. The quality of the hydration is sufficient. The application is fluid. The delicate fragrance allows to wear a perfume in addition to the cream. A real success composed notably of olive oil and ingredients extracted from prickly pear trees.
We also tested the natural deodorant. There again, the packaging commits the brand to a qualitative path. The application is also very fluid thanks to an effective roll-on. The formula is composed of olive oil, prickly pear extract, bamboo powder and bisabolol to soothe sensitive skin. But effectiveness? This is where this natural deodorant shows its weaknesses. The application is very pleasant, the feeling of freshness immediate. But does not last long. And the product quickly fades to be no longer effective at all. To be reserved for calm situations...
