PRODUCT REVIEW: L'OCCITANE NEROLI & ORCHIDEE EAU DE TOILETTE

As a massive perfume collector, I was excited when I was asked to trial the latest fragrance by L'Occitane, the Néroli & Orchidée Eau de Toilette, and here are my thoughts;




What They Say:
Neroli is the essence of unions and purity, yet its scent is far from innocent. Its encounter with the orchid, a flower from the other side of the world, is in no way a coincidence. While both essences seem so different, both white flowers are symbolic of femininity.

RRP: $82 (72ml) - Available from L’Occitane from the 23rd July 2014

What I Say:
This is the first fragrance that I have ever tried from L’Occitane, so I didn’t really know what to expect, but I wasn’t disappointed.

This Néroli & Orchidée from the L’Occitane La Collection de Grasse contains zesty and fruity head notes of orange and mandarin and orange blossom essential oil, while the heart notes include neroli, peach and fig milk…. The peach no doubt adds a touch of sweetness to the scent, but without making it sickly sweet. And then there’s the fig milk, I’ve never seen that in a fragrance before, and I am not sure that I can really detect it. Finally, as the base notes it contains white orchid, musk and iris. Just beautiful and oh so feminine and sophisticated.
 
 
 
And as I generally prefer zesty citrusy or fresh floral scents, this scent literally is combining both, so is like the perfect scent to me. I will enjoy wearing it during winter while longing for longer days and warmer days, and when summer finally arrives, it will be the perfect scent for both daytime and night-time use as well.
 
 
The fragrance is an eau de toilette, but even so it has a quite good wear lasting all day as even when using it in the morning, I can still smell it at night.

The Néroli & Orchidée Eau de Toilette comes in a feminine looking pale pastel pink box and the square set bottle is simple yet modern and elegant, and I love the golden thread sited around the next of the bottle, which symbolises the Neroli and Ochidee notes are being tied together.



 
All in all, I am so impressed with this gorgeous perfume from L’Occitane, and I know it will be a new favourite as we head towards spring. And I’ve already got my eyes on the matching body cream and shower gel…

Ever tried any of the fragrances from L’Occitane? What type of fragrances do you prefer; fruity, zesty, musky? And do you believe in a signature scent or do you have a whole wardrobe of fragrances like me??
