L'Occitane La Collection de Grasse

The true story of L’OCCITANE’s La Collection de Grasse continues, uniting two ingredients – one from a small, French Provençal town, and one from another distant land. The result is an unexpected reunion of precious, floral twins: Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc. {Product provided for review/feature consideration}
The unique fragrance is a proprietary blend of blue iris floral water extract from Grasse, cultivated in the region for over 15 years, matched with white iris extract from the Mediterranean, allies the velvety notes of blue iris with the transparent notes of its white counterpart.

· Top notes of blackcurrant & citrus

· Heart notes of iris, ylang-ylang & peach

· Base notes of iris, cedar & white musk

Even the packaging of the collection is unique! L’OCCITANE founder Olivier Baussan designed a special bottle to mirror the union of the two irises: A limited edition, hot-stamped, gold embellishment resembling a bouquet that is reflected from the back of the bottle to the front. 

The star of the collection is obviously the Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc Eau de toilette ($78) – 75ml. This fragrance opens fruity notes of blackcurrant and citrus before luxuriating in the intensity of blue iris. Subtle tones of ylang-ylang float to the surface, and a trail of a white musk delights in the hot/cold contrast of the twin flowers, giving the last word to powdery accords of iris and the dry scent of cedar.

Additional products launching alongside the fragrance include:

· Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc Shower Gel ($20) – 250ml: this silky shower gel gently cleanses the skin, leaving it delicately fragranced with an unexpected, velvety scent. When in contact with water, the silky fluid gel transforms into an ultra-rich lather.

· Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc Body Milk ($25) – 250ml: this body milk moisturizes the skin, leaving it wonderfully soft and velvety, and fragranced. 

· Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc Perfumed Soap ($7) – 75g: this perfumed soap gently washes hands and body. As soon as it is moistened, it diffuses a delicious iris scent into your daily cleansing routine.

· Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc Hand Creams ($12) – 30ml: an enhanced formula with three floral options all delicately showcase your preferred fragrance, leaving skin nourished and protected with 2% shea butter. 

o Iris Bleu & Blanc Hand Cream – 30ml

o Jasmin & Bergamote Hand Cream – 30ml

o Néroli & Orchidée Hand Cream – 30ml

L'Occitane makes the most beautiful fragrances and I always have one of their hand creams close at hand {HA!} - so I'm so happy to add these to my collection! Until next time...
