As the sun is shining and summer is on it's way, it's time to whip out your gorgeous spring/summer scents (if you haven't done so already!). L'Occitane En Provence have recently lauched La Collection de Grasse which consists of four beautiful fragrances; Jasmine & Bergamote, Magnolia & Mure, Vanille & Narcisse and finally Thé Vert & Bigarade. They all great ingredients don't they? The collection was inspired by renowned perfumer Karin Dubreuil and is reminiscent of her childhood in Grasse. It is a small village in the south of France that is known for it's scenery and fragrances.
Today, I will be reviewing the Vanille & Narcisse (*) fragrance. To be honest, I had a hard time deciding which fragrance I liked the most. I was torn between Jasmine & Bergamote and this fragrance as a lot of fragrances I have, contain jasmine. I think it's an elegant and mature scent. However, I chose Vanille & Narcisse as I wanted to try something new.
As the name suggests, Vanille & Narcisse contains vanilla absolutes from Madagascar and narcissus from the south of France. It's a lovely warm fragrance which I like as it isn't overpowering at all. The vanilla is the first scent I picked up and then the warm narcissus comes through later. It also has a hint of spice to it which you can appreciate after the fragrance settles. The fragrance is described as "warm" and "intoxicating". I agree, I feel like daydreaming whenever I have it on. I've been using it for the past few days and a few friends complimented me and asked about it. One has already bought it.
The collection is definitely worth trying out next time you are at the L'Occitane shop. I think there is a fragrance to suit everyone.
The fragrances retails at £49 for 75ml. You can pick it up in store or online. Click here.
