Paris is one of my favorite cities and I remember standing in line outside of a fragrant little shop owned by world renowned pastry chef Pierre Hermé to taste some of his delectable macaroons. I was astounded by the intensity of flavor and the experience was like tasting chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, pistachio and other fresh ingredients for the very first time!
Pierre does not shy away from bold parings and this year he teamed up with L’Occitane to create two scintillating collections: Jasmine – Immortelle Neroli and Grapefruit Rhubarb!
Both scents are unique but I prefer the Jasmine as it combines the fresh floral scents of France with a modern edge that is soft, feminine and irresistible! This scent is great for women of all ages and I love how the delicious sweet notes pair with the subtle sexiness of the musk.
The key ingredients include: Immortelle essential oil from Corsica and of course Jasmine flower and Neroli essence. It also has sensual notes of Pink Pepper, Lemon, Orange Blossom, Amber, White Wood and Musk. The fragrance is refined, soft and sophisticated and it reminds me of walking through a crisp, spring meadow on a sunny day. The perfume retails for $65.00.
This alluring scent is carried through the entire collection and the shower gel smells so good you won’t want bath time to end! The luxurious formula rejuvenates, relaxes and awakens your senses before you start your day and the lush bubbles foams away dirt and oil for an invigorating clean. It retails for $22.00.
Soap bars also available
The Body lotion is silky, creamy and lusciously smooth for supple, long lasting moisture. I love that it lightly perfumes the skin as it deeply conditions with a delicate blend of ingredients and a non-greasy finish that is ideal for both sunny summer days and blustery winter nights. The natural extracts, butters and flower oils nourish, protect and improve the texture of skin for smooth, supple results. The cream retails for $32.00.
Fall is just around the corner and for dry hands, damaged nails and rough cuticles the hand creams from L’Occitane are exceptional! These little tubes instantly relieve parched skin for soft, manicure worthy hands you will definitely want to show-off!
The formula helps improve skin's resiliency, protects against environmental elements and is enriched with natural oils and butters that are organically farmed. A little goes a long way with lasting results and they are the perfect purse size! The hand creams retail for just $12.00 making them fabulous gifts or stocking stuffers and this winter they will be a staple in my skincare routine.
Starting this October you can get this great collection plus other amazing gift sets for the holiday season including unisex scents like The Almond Collection which smells amazing!
At L’Occitane there is something luxurious for everyone on your list including the guys and gift sets start at just $20.
On Friday August 21, 2015 L'Occitane opened the doors of their 35th Canadian boutique in the Toronto Eaton Centre! You can also visit the website by clicking HERE.
