What is Jean Baptiste and this red wax insignia on the two bottles?
Let’s begin with a little overview of the name Jean Baptiste 1717. New Orleans was founded by Jean Baptiste le Moyne de Bienville who was an aristocrat that established this city in 1717 as the capital of French Louisiana. His original settlement is still around till date which is the French Quarter.
Niven Morgan pays tribute to Jean Baptiste and brings a series of high quality products dedicated to the founding father.
Jean Baptiste 1717 Body Wash ($28.00) and Sheer Body Oil ($30.00) are available online at www.NivenMorgan.com.
The fragrance of the entire Jean Baptiste 1717 line is quite seductive. There is a sweet tone along with floral. The distinctive scent of jasmine can be noted as well as tuberose, wild rose, and princess lily, subtly sweetened with caramel and creamy vanilla.
Starting off with the Body Wash, it is gold amber in color with honey like texture that is easy to squeeze right out of the bottle. While you wash, you will feel that you are being surrounded by the sweet scent of this series providing pleasantness. After you shower though, your skin won’t feel dry or tight at all. Instead you feel fresh and clean but with hydration from the Vitamin E, Chamomile, Comfrey, and Arnica extract. After pouring this gel out I found it to be puffy in foam with bubbles all over. It feels luxurious and the formula seems very gentle. Rinsing off is effortless leaving my skin fresh and delicately scented.
This sheer body oil brings moisturizing factors to the skin upon use. The mist is non greasy, instead it makes your skin smooth and hydrated. The oil is easily absorbed leaving my skin rejuvenated and luminous. The mist itself is kinda cool because instead of a concentrated point being shot, there is a bigger area being covered. So when you want to rub your skin with the oil there would be even coverage.
Jean Baptiste 1717 is quite the line especially the scent. Two words about the scent, “Alluring and Seductive.” Besides the scent, the body wash is rich and foamy making you feel clean and refreshed while the body oil provides the quick hydration / moisturization you need on your skin. These products are both safe and gently made with high quality ingredients so that you can ensure perfection on each use. For special moments like Valentine, Jean Baptiste will sure to leave a seductive memory.
