I recently received the L'Occitane Pivoine Flora perfume in anticipation for their related skincare launch this summer. This perfume was released in 2010 and pays homage to the beautiful peony flower. When I think of L'Occitane, I always think skincare, so I was super excited to try out a perfume!
The bottle is in in a pink glass with engraved petals. The shape reminds me of an apple a bit more than a flower but the packaging overall is elegant and beautiful.
There is 75mL in the Eau de Toilette and retails for $55. The price is quite reasonable and is on the lower range of designer perfumes.
The top notes are: grapefruit and bergamot which gave a fruity and refreshing first sniff
The mid notes are: rose, and peony (The floral scent definitely comes through and unfolds softly)
The bottom notes are: musk and sandalwood (I'm not sure exactly what these smell like but I do notice after about 4 hours then it turns to a mostly natural skin scent)
The scent is not the most unique but I find it to be a great day time perfume for the spring/summer time! It's refreshing but also has substance. It's elegant bottles makes for a perfect Mother's Day gift too!
So on to the new release part of the line! There is a skincare collection called Pivoine Sublime and is due to release in June 2015. This is suppose to be a line of perfecting skincare products that features a peony extract from the Drome region of France.
The line up will feature items such as their Skin Perfector, CC Cream, Perfecting Mist, and Tinted Lip Balm. I'm a huge fan of light foundation especially in the summer so I'm really excited to try the CC cream. Also, doesn't the tinted lip balm remind you of the Fresh lip balms?
*Okay this slideshow is not the prettiest looking, but I wanted to experiment with it. Any suggestions for a good slideshow maker?*
What's your favorite line at L'Occitane? And what are you getting for Mother's Day present?!
