Stepping into a L'Occitane store this time of year is like stepping into Santa's workshop. Instead of toys however, your senses are delighted in every way with L'Occitane's products.
From body skincare to wondrous scents, L'Occitane has you covered from head to toe.
Christmas is always a magical time so it’s no wonder L’Occitane chooses this period to spread some cheer and cast a festive spell with its two new fragrant collections.
Crafted by the L’Occitane’s Fragrance Merchant, its limited edition Fleurs Merveilleuses (Marvelous Flowers) and Feuilles Magiques (Magical Leaves) collection incorporates a line of beauty products including fragrance, hand cream, body cream/ milk, shower gel, and shimmering oil. Both collections are formulated to soften, nourish, moisturize while leaving a lovely fragrance. The whimsical packaging, including the faceted perfume bottles, will capture everyone’s heart this Christmas.
Both lines involve mixtures of fruits, flowers and herbs - staying true to L'Occitane's aesthetics. Marvellous Flowers has more of a feminine touch with notes of pink grapefruit, red berries, roses, peonies, white wood and musk. Magical Leaves is a unisex line with notes of verbena, hazel, citrus fruits and vanilla.
Ranging from prices as low as $10 for the hand cream (great stocking stuffers) to $45 for the eau de toilette. The best bets are the $60 - $68 gift sets which includes most of the individual products at a great price and a beautiful gift box.
In addition to this limited edition line, L'Occitane also has a range of gift sets for those who already are familiar with or for those who need an introduction to L'Occitane's products.
While known primarily for its fair trade organic pure shea butter products, L'Occitane has entire lines dedicated to skincare, bath & body, fragrance and haircare. The gift sets are like a who's who round-up of their most popular products ranging from the Best of L'Occitane's Collection, Ultimate Gift of Youth, and more.
L'Occitane has even created a special gift set especially for the guys, the L'Occitan Star Gift (no, that's not a typo. L'Occitan is the masculine take on the company name) and the Verdon Adventure set.
The best part to not only having these great products in one set (takes all the guesswork from selecting individual products), the sets come in a gorgeous gift box that requires no gift wrapping at all. In fact, most of these boxes are so visually appealing, that once the products are used up, you can reuse these gorgeous boxes. All of these gift sets are now on sale and tend to sell out very quickly.
From inexpensive stocking stuffers to indulgent gift sets, head to one of the L'Occitane stores in Manhattan or in your area -- it has something for everyone.
