L'Occitane 40th Anniversary Limited Editions

L'Occitane* is a brand which continues to excite me, the products, though luxury are priced so competitively it is hard not to want them all. It is also L'Occitane which reignited by love for all things Lavender and opened my eyes to many products that I can now not be without. It has now been 40 years since Olivier Baussan began distilling Rosemary essential oil to sell to local markets and since 1976 Oliviers passion for nature continues to strengthen and with over 3000 stores open worldwide, L'Occitane has an amazing history of Provencal beauty.


So,to celebrate its 40th anniversary and the generous natural heritage of Provence, L'OCCITANE has created a limited edition with a unique spirit. Its design, featuring striking green, diagonal lines, evokes fields of verbena seen from the sky before harvest time.
L'Occitane 40th Anniversary Limited Editions
Lavender Rough-Cut Soaps £10
You can grasp the scent of Lavender before you even open these soaps and gosh they are divine. 
L'Occitane 40th Anniversary Limited Editions
Enriched with lavender essential oil from Haute-Provence and Lavender flowers to help gently exfoliate the body,  these soaps inspired by authentic handcrafted soaps gently cleanse the hands and body, leaving them delicately scented.  


Verbena Moisturising Body Mousse £18
If you need a product to kick you awake in a morning, then this body moousse is just that product.  It is enriched with an extract of organic verbena from Provence and refreshing active ingredients, this moisturising body mousse, with its light-as-air texture, gives an intense feeling of freshness while leaving skin delicately scented with the fresh and sparkling notes of verbena.

It leaves your skin not only feeling hydrated and moisturised, but the fresh scent is just absolutely lovely not to mention long lasting. Perfect for all skin types too.

Lavender Foaming Bath £20.
If you have trouble sleeping, then this is a product you need in your life.  I absolutely love the Lavender foaming bath, it is just divine.  Formulated with a vegetal cleansing base, the Lavender Foaming Bath leaves the skin clean and supple. The A.O.C. lavender essential oil from Haute-Provence has both calming and soothing properties and there is a subtly about the scent in so much as it isn't over the top and won't make you smell like your Grandma, but if you have ever smelt fresh Lavender, then this is what perfumes your bath water to soothe and relax you.

The final product is Verbena Eau de Toilette (£42) which is described as being 'A bright and dazzling' Eau de toilette with verbena from Provence to awaken the body and mind.

With this EDT there is something quite special about it.  There is  a beautifully fresh lemony scent which is immediately noticeable and then the earthy freshness of the freshly picked green leaves of Verbena, rosy base of geranium and lemon tree add a little kick.  This is a scent which is perfect for a hot summers day, it is long lasting, smells just incredible and I absolutely love it.

So here is an amazing line up of products which come together to make an amazing 40th anniversary limited edition list.
