Coming in October, a new quartet of Eaux de Parfum from L’Occitane, inspired by the company’s Provencal roots and using ingredients from around the Mediterranean region. The Notre Flore collection includes:
Myrte (shown) takes its cues from the myrtle plant of Corsica, and includes notes of mandarin leaf, bilberry, sea spray, myrtle, rockrose and patchouli.
Iris was inspired by the iris of Tuscany, and includes bergamot, pink pepper, galbanum, violet, papyrus and tonka bean.
Cèdre is a masculine scent inspired by Morocco. The notes include grapefruit, wood sap, cumin, tobacco leaf, cedar and tonka bean.
Neroli is based on Tunisian neroli and orange blossom, with additional notes of litchee, plum, sandalwood and benzoin.
The four scents in the Notre Flore collection are €62 each for 75 ml Eau de Parfum. They are packaged in heavy glass bottles with caps designed to look like compasses. (via cosmeticsint.co.uk, cosmetiquemag.fr, osmoz, marieclaire.fr)
