Frederic Fekkai and his wife Shirin von Wulffen not only purchased and restored a beautiful home in Aix-en-Provence, the French beauty guru’s hometown, the couple also bought and relaunched the Provencal beauty line Cote Bastide.

At a breakfast yesterday in Tribeca, the intoxicating fragrances, olive-oil soaps, vegetable-wax candles in blown-glass jars, creams, and crystals were on display—the packaging is beautiful, too.
