L'Occitane en Provence Holiday 2013 Collection - Un Noël À Grasse

Thursday, November 07, 2013

Clearly I can smell the joy of giving and Christmas decorations around the mall. I attended the L'Occitane Holiday Collection preview last month at Ploy, Clearwater. Sooner I'll be updating more and more Holiday Collection for beauty and fashion brands! I'm really excited! I'm so happy that I was invited to join the preview. I've been a loyal L'Occitane user since the launch of Verbana shower gel.

I was totally amazed by L'Occitane's decoration and seriourly my heart is melted, I'm so ready to welcome this season of joy, love and giving! So glam and classy!

Eye candy! Why don't you look at me?

This year, L’OCCITANE invites you on a journey to rediscover your sweetest memories with Un Noël à Grasse, two limited-edition additions to the iconic La Collection de Grass line of fragrances – Fleur d’Or & Acacia (for her) and Cèdre & Oranger (for him). 

Created by renowned ‘nose’ Karine Dubreuil, who also lent her expertise to the four existing fragrances in La Collection de Grasse, Fleur d’Or & Acacia and Cèdre & Oranger tell of memories spent reliving her childhood days in Grasse during the magical season of Christmas.

I've tried almost the full collection for Fleur d’Or & Acacia (for her) and Cèdre & Oranger (for him). Fleur d’Or & Acacia is more likely a jasmine scent and it's not too flowery and I feel it's very suitable for those who're not fancy of super floral - more acceptable for public who are looking for good stuff. It's light, soft and the texture of the hand cream is just like a lotion and it won't make you feel sticky (cause I've experienced the hand pampering session using the hand cream). Really awesome! Cèdre & Oranger (for him), nothing fancy. A smell of light woody musk, very sophisticated!

1.    Eau de Toilette (75ml, RM225)
The memory of nature is imprinted in our minds, just like the lush garden we once knew and loved. The feeling of celebrating Christmas in Grasse can be felt with this warm, honey-like scent, accentuated by mimosa and white wood. Soft, subdued yet comforting, Fleur d’Or & Acacia is inspired by the orange glow of the December light in the heart of winter.
