I have fallen head over heels for L’Occitane. I was smitten after discovering the beauty of Arlésienne, but the Verbena Frisson collection pushed me over the edge.
In summer, the verbena harvest gets off to a start in Provence. The freshly picked verbena leaves are taken from one village to the next, until they reach the distillery.
Their journey takes them alongside the rivers and streams that flow through the region. The invigorating scent of verbena leaves blends with the bracing freshness of running water.
L’OCCITANE has captured this moment in a citrus fragrance with vibrant and watery notes.
A splash of freshness at the heart of summer!
I can’t walk past a lemon tree without picking a couple of leaves and crushing it in my hands to release that delightfully fresh, lemon aroma. L’Occitane have captured and bottled one of my most favourite scents in Frisson de Verveine. The EDT is described as having a sparkling aqueous fragrance that blends top notes of lemon and bergamot with a heart of fresh verbena and cucumber. At first I wasn’t sure if I was going to like wearing a lemony scented perfume. To be honest, I really struggle to find perfumes that bowl me over. Frisson de Verveine has captured my heart though and I’ve actually become a bit obsessed. I can’t stop sniffing myself. This is a perfect summer scent and retails for R740. PS How gorgeous is that bottle?!
I also had the opportunity to try the Fresh Shower Gel, Ice Gel for Legs and Feet and the Refreshing Body Mist. All three products are gorgeous and leave your skin feeling refreshed and smelling lovely.
The collection also includes bath salts, a body gel and a hand cream.
This is a truly gorgeous collection for summer and I highly recommend it. My heart aches though as it is a limited addition!
