Check out the video below to meet Steve Duross, founder and owner of Duross & Langel in Midtown Village, the city’s go-to shop for handmade soaps, candles, balms and scrubs, all prepared upstairs by hand in a variety of seductive scents from cherry almond to lavender oatmeal to red clover. You’ll see Steve on site at the store, get a peek at what you can pick up if you’re not already addicted to his soaps and learn about what he wishes you knew about Philly.
