L'Occitane

As we begin to enjoy our indoor spaces again, the team here at Vancouverscape has been looking at a few L’Occitane products to add a touch of fragrance to the home and body.

L’Occitane’s soaps are created with vegetable (not palm) oil and made using a traditional Provençal cauldron method. Shea extract, known for softening and nourishing the skin, is added to give their soaps a creamy lather.

We also include a lovely floral scent, L’eau Herbae and a relaxing candle to our autumn soaps and scents guide. All products can be found at L’Occitane online and in shops across North America and the US.

Shea Verbena Extra-Gentle Soap

Shea Verbena Extra-Gentle Soap

Shea butter has been used for centuries by Sub-Saharan women as a nourishing ingredient for both skin and hair. L’Occitane also gives back to Burkina Faso’s local community by providing Burkinabé women a way to develop a sustainable, fair-trade shea butter supply chain.
250g (8.8 oz.), CAD $14/USD $12.50; 100g (3.5 oz.), CAD $9/USD $8.50

Verbena Mandarin Extra-Gentle Soap

Verbena Mandarin Extra-Gentle Soap

L’Occitane’s limited-edition Mandarin Extra-Gentle Soap contains Verbena Mandarin perfume that evokes fresh mandarin peel while leaving the skin soft and clean. We like the small square size that’s perfectly suited for guest bathrooms and smaller, urban-minded sink spaces.
50g (1.7 oz.), CAD $7/USD $5.50

Shea Lavender Extra-Gentle Soap

Shea Lavender Extra-Gentle Soap

The Lavender Extra-Gentle Soap has a new and improved formula but still combines softening shea butter with a delicate lavender scent for massaging into the skin. This one is available in two sizes, 100g and 250g (the 250g is currently sold out). 100g (3.5 oz.), CAD $9/USD $8.50

Herbae L’Eau Eau de Toilette

Herbae L’Eau Eau de Toilette

Herbae L’Eau Eau de Toilette is a lovely combination of florals and wild grasses along with angelica and a hint of marshmallow, for a delicate scent that’s not too strong when worn. The floral motif-necked bottle is also eye-catching with a green sprig inside that connects to the atomizer. 50 ml (1.6 fl. oz.), CAD $80/USD $70

Cocon de Sérénité Relaxing Candle

Cocon de Sérénité Relaxing Candle

L’Occitane’s Cocon de Sérénité fragrance is a subtle blend of Lavender, Sweet Orange, Bergamot, Mandarin and Geranium essential oils for a calming experience. These are poured into a rounded, opaque glass jar and give a warm glow when illuminated.
140g (4.9 oz.), CAD $34/USD $29
