L'Occitane summer collection

Summer is finally here, and with it comes an abundance of sweet-smelling blossoms, plenty of sunshine and more time spent outdoors.

L’Occitane has several floral-forward fragrances perfect to wear during the warmer months. We found two, plus a great hydrating skin cream to use for keeping skin nourished during those longer days.

Pivoine Flora Eau de Toilette

Pivoine Flora Eau de Toilette

Pivone Flora comes in a beautifully shaped glass bottle that mimics the peony flower’s petals on top. The glass colour is a gradation from clear to pink, perfectly capturing the spirit of this well-loved spring and summer perennial.

L'Occitane Peony Eau de Toilette

A couple of sprays reveal a soft floral scent combined with a herbal/sweet aroma. It smells amazing on the skin and L’Occitane has aimed to capture the transformation of the peony from a bud to the start of its blooming. The scent is also available in a travel-friendly 10 ml roll-on (CAD $24). 75 ml, CAD $65

LOccitan Eau de Toilette

L’Occitan Eau de Toilette

L’occitan Eau de Toilette is for lavender lovers. Authentic A.O.C. lavender is blended with the peppery, nutmeg scent of burnt wood as a secondary aroma. It’s also a fresh scent for men that’s perfect for both spring and summer.

For those who’ve been lucky enough to visit the lavender fields of Provence, this scent will bring back a fragrant memory of the south of France. It’s a scent suitable for both sexes. 100 ml, CAD $65

Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream

Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream

Summer enjoyed outdoors in the sunshine can dehydrate skin almost as easily as in winter. We keep a tube of L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Hand Cream in our bathroom to use each morning before heading out for the day but have recently discovered their Ultra Rich Body Cream, created with 25% shea butter.

This formula goes on nice and smooth and doesn’t leave our skin with a greasy feeling once applied. There’s extracts of linseed, sweet almond, marshmallow and honey that leaves a light scent that won’t overpower fragrances. It comes in a 200 ml pot and retails for CAD $48.
