Dance Into The Season With L’Occitane and new Arlésienne

‘L’Occitane En Provence introduces Arlésienne… the L’Occitane woman:  a luminous, mysterious woman from the South.’ Arlésienne is a soft, feminine and romantic floral fragrance that I think is perfect for this time of year. The bottle is absolutely exquisite and the eau de toilette is accompanied by a range of beautiful complimentary products… we are spoiled for choice. I will leave it to L’Occitane to tell you more about this lovely new scent. I have fallen in love… I am sure you will too.  There is so much more to this woman from the South than the ties she shares with L’OCCITANE. Her very character, rooted in the ground, in the stonework of Arles, is what spurred the desire of L’OCCITANE and the creation of this fragrance – signature of the perfumer in Provence. The Arlésienne is like no other. She arouses creativity and inspires artists (Van Gogh, Picasso, Léo Lelée, Mistral, Bizet…). She is the silent, markedly absent heroine of a play by Daudet in three acts, in which she is constantly referred to, yet never appears. In her wake, this woman leaves a distinct trace of her presence. You can still hear the whisper of fabrics, still smell the lingering trail of a new fragrance. Three floral notes, each one like a trait of her character, fuse together: the fiery temperament of saffron, the grace of rose, the mystery of violet. Visit L’Occitane for more info....
