L’Occitane never fails to bring us beautiful, fresh and classic goodies. There newest collection Pivoine Delicate is feminine, fresh and oh-so cute, just in time for the first blooms of Spring.
Inspired by the flower of a thousand petals, the peony, L’Occitane had put together a fresh, delicate range as bright and bubbly as the flower itself. Mr Rivere, the French nurseryman who advises L’Occitane, had a peony in his nursery that stood out from the rest. The soft flower, in curious shades of pastel pink, it appeared to be made out of silk. The collection was inspired by that one flower.
The perfume (RRP $60) is delightful. Immediately, you are treated to a burst of fresh citrusy top notes. The sunny fragrance is the perfect accompaniment for picnics in flower lined parks. The, musky and woody tones settle in to create a warm, richer scent. Over time, the perfume lingers as the heart of the perfume – peony, rose and lily of the valley, bloom. These blend to create a delicately feminine, powdery fragrance, just made for the sunny, happy days of spring.
The lipstick (RRP $29), is a wonderful addition to the collection. We love cute packaging, and the sweet, pastel pink and floral tube had us won from the beginning. The product itself is even better – in soft and rosy, barely there shades, it gives the lips the right amount of natural colour for a girly, flushed look. Available in 3 shades – Brun Discret, Pivione Delicate, Charmant Corail.
The collection also includes a lovely lip balm (RRP $12) which blends it muted rosy tones with a silky soft product that applies smoothly on the lips. Lovely and hydrating, it makes your lips kissable just in time for spring romance to bloom.
The hand cream (RRP $28) is subtly scented and enriched with shea butter. The formula is thick enough to feel the hydrating effects instantly, without leaving your hands slippery. The small, twist top packaging also makes it a great product to throw in your handbag, so you can always have soft smooth hands.
The collection also includes a lip shine (RRP $25) which provide a burst of sweet, fresh colours and a subtle shimmer. Available in three shades: Rose Pastel, Rose Fremissant and Beige Gracieux. For the woman on-the-go, a perfume and gloss duo is available (RRP $26) which combines two wonderful items into one travel friendly product.
There is also a shimmering powder (RRP $38) to add that fresh, springtime glow to your hair and body as well as a fresh body mist (RRP $18) enriched with aloe vera.
