L’OCCITANE VIOLETTE & ROSE DE MAI EAU DE TOILETTE

L'Occitane is one of my favourite brands, infact you only need to look through my blog to see just how much of a fan I am. To celebrate their 40th year anniversary, L’Occitane have created a stunning limited edition fragrance which is said to capture of the essence of Provence in a single spritz, so let me introduce you to - L’Occitane Violette & Rose de Mai Eau de Toilette


L’OCCITANE VIOLETTE & ROSE DE MAI EAU DE TOILETTE
L’OCCITANE VIOLETTE & ROSE DE MAI EAU DE TOILETTE

Created by world renowned perfumer Violaine Collas; Violette & Rose de Mai is described as being 'a vibrant and elegant unity of two ravishing flowers from Grasse. This exceptional fragrance tells the romance of Violet and May rose with fruity and zesty notes of bergamot and mandarin that melt into tender and creamy base notes of musks and sandalwood' and within the fragrance you have the following notes:
  • Top Notes: Bergamote, Rhubarb, Cassis, Mandarin & Orange.
  • Heart Notes: Rose de Mai, Mediterranean Geranium & Violette Leaves.
  • Base Notes: Santal & Musk.
Now I am a huge fan of rose scented products, always have been. There is just something about the scent that is divine and mixing it with Violette leaves adds that little something extra and if rose scented perfumes aren't for you, then I would urge you to give this a try, it is so light, refreshing yet incredibly fresh scented and the hint of citrus is simply divine and takes just a few minutes on your skin to come to life.


Again, as this is an eau de toilette, they often dont have great longevity on the skin, but with L'Occitane scents they last absolutely ages and no matter which one I wear, I can always detect the scent some 5-6 hours after the first application on my skin and that little bit longer on my clothes which is really impressive.

For me this is the perfect summer scent, it isn't too heavy or overly sweet, it is as I have mentioned; light, crisp and incredibly refreshing and I just absolutely adore it.  Retailing at £52 for 75ml you more than get what you pay for.

  31. the gold market price moved up considerably higher than the cost of production. Today Gold Rate An analysis suggests that the Gold Rate Today was starting to hear towards its high-quality store of value properties rather than the commodity pricing mechanism.
