L’Occitane Holiday Collection Featuring Arlesienne PLUS a Giveaway!

Press Sample

 

L’Occitane never disappoints. Their holiday gift sets are incredibly beautiful and well priced. The packaging alone is to-die-for.

One of the sets I’m most excited for is the Arlésienne Collection ($68). “Daring and gracious, the woman of Arles encompasses the beauty of Provence. Elusive and attractive, she leaves a fragrant trail bursting with color and life, that lingers wherever she goes.”  I want to be her!

Although this main accord in this scent is rose, this is definitely not your Grandma’s rose scent! Most rose fragrances are either too powdery (a la Grandma) or too overwhelmingly sweet (headache inducing). Arlésienne is a subtle bouquet of rose from Grasse, sweet violet and saffron from Provence. The result is an energized floral; a feminine scent with a touch of sass due to the saffron. I appreciate the complexity of the juice and the juxtaposition of the sweet and spice.

The Arlésienne Collection ($68) includes:

  • Arlésienne Eau de Toilette 2.5 fl.oz – these florals work together spectacularly with no powdery notes. It is a fresh, clean rose with a crispness to it. 
  • Arlésienne Shower Cream 2.3 fl.oz – this transforms into a lovely foamy cream
  • Arlésienne Hand Cream 1 .oz  – enriched with moisturizing agents of natural origin, this velvet cream helps to nourish and soften hands, revealing the vibrant Arlésienne fragrance
  • Arlésienne Body Milk 8.4 fl.oz – enriched with shea butter, this beauty milk helps to moisturize and soften the skin. Its fluid texture melts gently onto your body and envelops the skin.

This makes such a wonderful gift for the rose lover in your family or a friend. And for those who don’t want to commit to an entire collection, a fabulous starter gift set in the Arlésienne scent is the Hugs and Kisses set ($20). Shea butter hand cream and a shimmery lip gloss keep a girl winter weather at bay.
