Today I’d like to share with you a newly launched fragrance from L’Occitane, the Mer & Mistral Eau de Toilette and the matching Body Gel*;


What They Say:

Fresh and aquatic notes blend with an aromatic accord of pine, cypress and rosemary. A pure and simple fragrance, with a breath of the mistral wind.


Eau de Toilette: $82 (75ml)
Fresh Body Gel: $30 (175ml)

Both available from L’Occitane

What I Say:

This new fragrance is a part of L’Occitane’s La Collection de Grasse which has been inspired by and named after the world perfume capital in the south of France. There are numerous fragrance in the collection, and each has been made using natural extracts, to give the purest and clearest scents.

The Mer & Mistral Eau de Toilette is such a refreshing scent containing head notes of lemon and mandarin, heart notes of pine, cypress and rosemary, while the base notes include cedar, white amber and musk.


This fragrance claims that It has been designed for both men and women – and when I first saw the fragrance notes, I didn’t quite understand. I am definitely not one for pine, amber and musky scents, however, as soon as you smell it, you can detect the citrusy notes from the lemon and mandarin, which makes it so incredibly refreshing, and indeed suitable as a unisex fragrance smelling beautifully on both myself and my husband. However, in staying that, if you did have to pick a side, I would have to say that due to the musky undertones, that it is more of a men’s fragrance.

It is such a nice light aqua-style scent, perfect for spring and summer, and it lasts all day on the skin. It comes in a blue tint3ed clear square bottle like the other fragrances in the collection. It is simple and elegant, and again, suitable for both him and her.

The matching Mer & Mistral is a lovely refreshing moisturising gel with the same beautiful scent as the fragrance. And while it is so light, it is very moisturising thanks to being enriched with shea butter that leaves the skin soft and smooth for hours. And when using this body gel in connection with the fragrance, it beautifully builds it up, for a more intense scent that also lasts longer, but also when used on its own, it gives the skin a nice scent that lasts all day.  

Overall, an absolute stunning scent, and perfect for those who prefer light and fresh scents.
