If anyone deserves a special mention for their Christmas campaign this year it definitely is L’Occitane! Again, they have knocked the ball out of the park with not only the unbelievably beautiful packaging but also great products.
When it comes to L’Occitane you can be sure that the scent combinations are going to be something special. This year’s Chrsistmas offerings have been created by Olivier Baussan, founder of L’Occitane and Pierre Hermé, pastry chef and true inventor of unique flavours. In this festive collection we have two truly unique and interesting scents: Jasmine, Immortelle & Neroli and Grapefruit & Rhubarb (my fave).
One of the things I love about Christmas gifts from L’Occitane is that they are actually not that heavily Christmas-scented, which makes total sense! Usually by the time December is over I’ve had enough of all the flavours of Christmas and am happy to move on to something fresh & new.
First up we have, for me at least, the star of the show the Grapefruit & Rhubarb fragrance. I’m not usually a huge fan of fresh and citrusy scents but this one has captured me. It is so interesting and complex with the rhubarb really coming through. It’s definitely one to try!
The Jasmine, Immortelle & Neroli fragrance is also beautiful but definitely more on the sweeter and floral side, a very feminine scent.
In the collection you have an Eau de Toilette (€56), Shower Gel (€17,50), Body Lotion (€24,50), Soap (€4,50), Hand Cream (€10.50) & Lip Balm (€10).
The beautiful packaging deserves a special mention, for sure! It is inspired by the gorgeous macaroon packaging from the patisseries of France, the boxes the eau de toilette come in are just divine! No wrapping needed here!
If you are looking for Christmas presents for any ladies in your life make sure you stop at L’Occitane and have a sniff of the limited edition Christmas range!
