L'Occitane Christmas 2013 Collection Preview

10.09.2013

it's a Christmas Party at Ploy, Clearwater

I am happy to show everyone today what I have discovered at the L'Occitane's Christmas Party for media and bloggers held at Ploy, Clearwater, Damansara Heights. It's only a few months away but yes starting next month the malls will begin with their Christmas decorations. People like me will begin Christmas shopping and hunting for desserts that make us look like a teddy bear and not care. Why? Because the smell of candy, warm gingerbread cookies and a hot cup of cocoa with marshmallows floating around just makes you all butterfly goey warm and loving this season.

As a L'Occitane member and customer for many years, I always look forward to their Christmas collection, what will it be this year? Any limited edition scents? How's the Christmas wrapping like?. I still remember the best Christmas was 4 years ago, which I hope L'Occitane would impress us all again. Sadly no colorful candy themes will be expected yet.

This year, L'Occitane invites their customers on a journey to rediscover our sweetest memories with Un Noël à Grasse, two limited-edition additions to the iconic La Collection de Grass line of fragrances – Fleur d’Or & Acacia (for her) and Cèdre & Oranger (for him). Even the names sounds classy.

Fleur d’Or & Acacia (her) & Cèdre & Oranger (him)
the 2 limited edition fragrance for Christmas

The limited edition perfumes Fleur d’Or & Acacia (for her) and Cèdre & Oranger (for him) are created by the famous perfumer, Karine Dubreuil who grew up in Grasse. Grasse is the land of perfume where perfume ingredients gather from everywhere is collected here and turn into perfumes by perfume makers. Watch the movie "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" and you will understand how perfumes are made. 

“I remember the melancholy of summer’s end, mixed with the excitement of renewal to come. Within the earth sap would begin to rise. In my grandmother’s garden, there would be mimosa branches, weighed heavy with fluffy flowers, its sweet scent carried by the wind, mingling with aromas of acacia from the Mediterranean…” – Karine Dubreuil

Remembering her childhood days in Grasse during Christmas, Karine Dubreuil created Fleur d’Or & Acacia and Cèdre & Oranger for the La Collection de Grasse. I personally find the scent of Fleur d’Or &Acacia smelling like honey jasmine flowers. It has a musky floral scent that's light and soft, almost comforting. The top notes are made with Lemon and Bergamot while the heart notes, Mimosa and Acacia and base notes, White Wood and Musk. Since it's EDT, the light fragrance would only last a few hours. You're left smelling like a baby in the end. A day scent just enjoying Christmas with the family and night, feeling the warmth around the Christmas tree laughing with friends. Not a party perfume I must say and I think this would go well for mature ladies like our moms or aunties.

I didn't get a chance to smell the Cèdre & Oranger (for him). According the the description, it's more of a light woody musk scent for the men. Both EDT bottles look identical except for the light tinted water that would distinguish one another. Again it's classy and sophisticated. Nothing fancy or frilly. The collection would be available at all L'Occitane boutiques in mid November. Here's a sneak peek at the limited edition Christmas 2013 Gift Sets
