Just In / L'Occitane - La Collection de Grasse

L'Occitane always surprises us with gorgeous new products every season and the latest exquisite offering comes in the shape of an eau de toilette line - Le Collection de Grasse!
The name pays homage to the city of Grasse, in the south of France, which is considered the world capital of perfumery.
I've actually been to Grasse (probably a good 15 years ago) and I also visited a fragrance factory; I remember a luscious and green countryside with many discreet villas, home to the most prestigious laboratories and greatest perfumers.
Karine Dubreuil is the nose behind this collection and took inspiration from this town, where herself grew up and trained as a perfumer.
Every composition is based around two main accords - Contrasting yet complementary elements that captures people's imagination. Bold choices to create an unforgettable olfactive memory but also simplicity and authenticity associated with L'Occitane brand.

In The Vert & Bigarade* the key raw ingredients are green tea from Japan and  bitter orange essential oils from the Mediterranean.
They marry beautifully in a refreshing fragrance which is ideal both for men and women; the sweetness of the green tea emerges first and then develops into a sensual aromatic essence.
It's an incredibly charming and energizing perfume - also encased in a stunning slick and square bottle... look how gorgeous it looks next to L'Occitane Eau Universelle Citrus Cologne, another glorious scent and favourite of mine.
Every fragrance is available as an eau de toilette, body milk, shower gel and trademark soap nationwide and on uk.loccitane.com
