Newly launched at L'Occitane is the Néroli and Orchidée Collection which has been created to portray the meeting of two essences, which are said to come together in Grasse. First up we have Orange blossom which grows in the region of Grasse coupled with orchid which has been included as it is said to carry the scent of faraway lands. I warn you now one sniff and you will be hooked!
I was lucky enough to be sent the L'Occitane Néroli and Orchidée scented candle and the Fragrance Beautifying Cream (a cream you dab on the pulse points before applying the matching fragrance to prolong and intensify the scent) and have struggled for a few days not only to pin point the scent but also to burn anything else. L'Occitane Néroli and Orchidée is warm, fruity and floral yet light all at the same time - I liken it to a hot summers night some where exotic when the air is still warm at 10pm and the fragrance of both the salty sea and local blossoms fill the air. As I said it really is tricky to pin point especially when you aren't all that eloquent with words!
L'Occitane Néroli and Orchidée is officially listed as a white floral but I disagree somewhat as it certainly has a juicy kick. Notes include the radiant neroli essence which comes from the Mediterranean, this is blended with white orchid absolute from Madagascar and supplying the fruity undertones is orange and peach. I realise it is bizarre to describe something that you don't eat as more-ish but that is exactly how I feel about this new L'Occitane addition - it has me coming back for more.
Try it you won't be disappointed.
