L’Occitane’s Arlésienne


Arles, France, is a discreet town that upholds the Place de la Major, narrow alleys that lead to the banks of the Rhône, and neighbourhoods of the La Roquette district. It is also a place with the most Roman monuments after Rome itself.

L’Arlésienne is the new L’Occitane perfume inspired by the Venus of Arles a Roman statue discovered in 1651 and everything it represents: the woman of Provence. The woman of Provence is the ideal of beauty and the muse of artists such as Van Gogh, Picasso, Mistral and Christan Lacroix.

L’Occitane Arlésienne flacon was inspired by the movements of her dress and its colourful box is inspired by a dance of the Arlésiennes.

L’Occitane Arlésienne flacon was inspired by the movements of her dress and its colourful box is inspired by a dance of the Arlésiennes. The aromatic sensory formulations of the brand continue to be stimulated by the scent of Provence and remain with the genuine ingredients it has embraced since 1976.

The Arlésienne perfume is a burst of colour and joie de vivre emitted through a beautiful fusion of saffron, violet, Grasse rose, mandarin orange, lily, sandalwood, and tonka bean.

L’Occitane has taken the unique notes of 3 flowers that reflect the Arlésienne : with the temperament of Saffron, the grace of the rose and the mistery of the violet. Mandarin orange adds a bit of sparkle with notes of sandalwood, woods and tonka bean.

L’Occitane new Limited Edition Karité Fouetté


Once again an exciting news for all L’Occitane lovers, another great Limited Edition line will be available from October and more precisely the new Karité Fouetté/ Whipped Shea Butter Line. Shea Butter is an ideal beauty ingredient used by women (and men) in Africa to help nourish and protect their skin. L’Occitane uses Shea Butter from Burkina Faso, harvested in a sustainable and fair trade partnership with the women who produce it.

 L’Occitane Limited Edition Karité Fouetté Shower Foam


The Karité Fouetté Whipped Shower Foam is so much fun to apply and even though it is clear in the bottle it is surprisingly creamy. I love how soft it leaves my skin!


L’Occitane Limited Edition Karité Fouetté Body Cream


This is an extraordinarily nourishing range and the whipped body cream feels wonderful to apply. The consistency is airy and it glides onto ones skin with ease. This is an immensely moisturising body cream and I find that the lightness works especially well in summer, because you don’t want anything heavy or sticky.


L’Occitane Limited Edition Karité Fouetté Hand Cream


The final part of this trio is the hand cream. It’s excellent and moisturises without any trace of grease. L’Occitane have hand creams down to an art at this point and the added cute factor with this one is the little ‘mouth’ of the tube which ‘whips’ the cream as you squeeze it out.

This new line will be a real treat for the body as the high concentration of Shea Butter and the light airy whipped formula with a delicate scent will melt into your skin while nourishing it and protecting it (what else would you expect from L’Occitane).

The new L’Occitane Limited Edition Karité Fouetté range will include: Whipped Shower Foam (150ml), Whipped Body Cream (125ml), and Hand Cream (30ml), and is available at L’Occitane boutiques. Come into the beautiful world of L’Occitane.

French Maison L’Occitane’s new Eau de Toilette Néroli & Orchidée is part of the ‘Collection de Grasse’. The ‘Collection de Grasse’ combines the most exquisite ingredients and L’Occitane follows in the tradition of the skilled perfumers who build up the international reputation of Grasse, in Provence the town famous for precious scents and rare extracts.

Karine Dubreuil perfume creator for L’Occitane knows the place well as she grew up in Provence drew on her fragrant matchmaking skills and introduced neroli , the essence of orange blossom and white orchid.

Neroli is the essence of unions and purity , yet its scent is far from innocent. In encounter with the orchid, a flower from the others side of the world, is in no way a coincidence. While both essences seem so different, both white flowers are symbolic of feminity

Karine Dubreuil

The fragrace is evocative of a pearly white flowerly lying on a piece of silk with zesty notes of orange ad mandarin and it reveals another facet of Neroli (orange blossom essential oil) through resolutely floral notes, heightened by the elegant presence of white of orchid with a base of musk and precious iris. In the language of flowers, orange blossom and white orchid are symbols of affection.

A golden thread is tied around the neck of the flacon, as if to bind them together.
I absolutely love this fragrance, makes a perfect scent for Spring and would make a perfect gift come Mother’s day.

L’Occitane’s Hand Cream Confections set



With so many amazing gifts around at Christmas-time, it’s sometimes hard to find one that really gives you pause and makes you gasp, but that’s exactly the reaction I had when I saw L’Occitane’s Hand Cream Confections set.

This is a set of L’Occitane’s 5 best-selling hand creams in portable 30ml (1 oz) sizes. All the hand creams have 20% shea butter which makes them super moisturizing. The set includes the original Shea Butter Hand Cream which is so popular that it’s sold every 5 seconds worldwide. Also included are the Pivoine Flora (peony), Lavender, Orange Blossom, and Cherry Blossom scents of the cream.

The set would make a great gift to someone who either borrows hand cream from you all the time (we all have one of those friends), or someone who appreciates good skincare products. Think of gifting it to a friend who enjoys having their nails done and then takes good care of her hands. I know that hand cream is one product that I go through really quickly, so that makes this gift really perfect for me (wink)

The L’Occitane’s Hand Cream Confections set is available at L’Occitane and Sephora stores and online..
