Oxford Exchange Features Spa Savvy Cote Bastide Collection


Dear Wellness Seekers,

Oxford Exchange Features Spa Savvy Cote Bastide Collection as a very happy discovery – Ooo la la!  There is only one other time I came upon this inspired body centric lifestyle brand and that was in Melbourne, Australia. I would have never in my wildest dreams have expected it to be so well presented at of all places the Oxford Exchange here is Tampa.

As Spring arrives it beacons a fresh new scent to embrace the season and to renew the spirit and soul. The process of bathing – the act of slowly washing clean with a special bath and body collection and wrapping your body in fresh linens so close to the skin is the ultimate in simple self care pleasures for a Spanista. Your body is a temple and deserves to be treated as such.

Cote Bastide is so Spanista’s view of Spa Chic Style as it is inspired by the desire for rediscovering the simple pleasures of everyday life.  The encouragement to care for our wellbeing by slowing down our pace, to indulge the senses with beautiful scents and sensations of body care products that are made with the purist of intentions and ingredients, is the priority here. This is brought to us by a savvy French woman who understands how to cultivate beauty through The Art of Living. Her successful range of products includes fragrance, fashion and home traditions. Evocative feelings emerge from this simply inspiring, high touch, high quality concept.

Oxford Exchange curates the Cote Bastide Collection into a Self Care Indulgence presentation that captivates. You can see the range of fragrances in these pics. Two collections call out to me right now –

1. Tilleul is a fragrance of youth and fairy spring forest. This scent is as intoxicating as youth and young trees in spring. You feel like you are standing under a tree on which small, green, sticky leaves are growing and spring is flourishing around you and inside you. The top notes include lemon blossom and watermelon. The heart contains cyclamen and linden blossom.

2. Argan Oil is advocated as a powerful moisturizing oil that works against flaking of the skin as well as for nourishing the hair. This oil has also medicinal uses against rheumatism and the healing of burns. Externally, argan oil is used for hair as brilliantine to fortify and in the treatment of wrinkled or scaly dry skin. Moroccans traditionally use unroasted argan oil to treat skin diseases, and as a cosmetic oil for skin and hair.


Oxford Exchange Features Spa Savvy Cote Bastide Collection is about enjoying the simple pleasures of life as Spring arrives. Why not treat yourself to a fresh, mood enhancing fragrance in the perfect Self Care package – a candle, bath rock crystals, milled soap and body milk along with a unique cleaning mitt and a few sumptuous towels? After all you deserve it!  It is a great way to enjoy the weekend – So why not enjoy shopping for it and enjoying it?

To Your Self Care Journey To Joy,
