L’Occitane Arlesienne Fragrance and Skin Collection

L’Occitane have launched some absolutely stunning products this uear, including their amazing value for money Advent Calender which I reviewed here. The latest launch sees the beautiful Arlesienne Fragrance and Skin Collection which features three flowers which are described as being ‘full of character and depth’; so we have The Rose of Grasse, The Violet of Tourrettes-Sur-Loup and The Saffron of Provence. The collections consists of a fragrance which is the star of the collection, alongside many more bath and body products which all have the stunning Arlesienne fragrance.
L’Occitane Arlesienne Fragrance and Skin Collection
The collection is described as follows:


Daring and gracious, the woman of the city of Arles encompasses the beauty of Provence. Elusive and attractive, she leaves a fragrant trail bursting with colour and life, that lingers wherever she goes. L'OCCITANE celebrates the beauty and refinement of this iconic woman with our Arlésienne collection; a subtle bouquet of rose for her grace, sweet violet for her mystery and saffron for her temperament.


Rose from Grasse, sweet violet and saffron from Provence come together in a floral fusion that reveals unexpected nuances. The Arlésienne fragrance evokes the woman of Arles - full of mystery, beauty and grace.


L’Occitane Arlesienne Eau de Toilette 75ml £49 - If you like your floral fragrances, then you will love this because it is just such a stunning scent. It belongs to the Musky Floral family and has Head notes of Bergamot Essense, Saffron Extract, Galbanum and Hawthorn Accord. Immediately when it is spritzed the bergamot note bursts into life for the citrus effect and is settled with Saffron and the slight almondy scent of Hawthorn alongside the greenness of Galbanum. The heart notes of May Rose Absolute and Violet Leaf Absolute brings to life the floralness of the perfume which is quite intense but as the base notes of Musk, Ambrette, Sandalwood and Ambrox settle the fragrance down, the floral and musk notes come together and this fragrance is feminine without question.

As always with an EDT from L'Occitane, the longevity is amazing because it just lasts and lasts for hours and on clothes, you can still catch it the following day.

L’Occitane Arlesienne Beauty Milk 250ml £21. A moisturising body milk, fragranced with the irresistibly floral and deeply captivating scent of Arlésienne. Enriched with organic shea butter, it moisturises the skin and enhances its beauty. The velvety texture envelops the body in a delicate scent with hints of Grasse rose, violet and saffron from Provence. These three flowers, symbolic of Provence, exude both an innocent softness and a bold sensuality. Is the description given to this body milk and it is just as the description states.

The Milk itself is lovely and silky and on the skin it is just incredibly nourishing on the skin leaving it feeling soft and smooth to the touch. The fragrance, which matches the perfume, is just as stunning and of course when worn together, that scent becomes more intense and longer lasting.

This is for me, another amazing collection from L'Occitane and one worth looking out for is a musky floral is your kind of fragrance. With an entire collection which spans handcreams, shower gels, hair mists, lip balms and soaps to name but a few, there are gift sets that would make the most amazing present!

  6. Never tried L'Occitane. I love the sound of the perfume but little weary on the Musk, I love Sandalwood scents but sometimes all those fragrances together can be a bit too musky. It sounds like they may have balanced it out with the Citrus though. I'm tempted to see if I can find it locally to do a test spritz Will be on the look out for this!
