L'Occitane violette & rose de mai fragrance


Hey, long time no blog!  To explain my absence, I've been busy sunning myself in gorgeous Dubai, but more about that another time.  Today is all about a beautiful new fragrance launch from L'Occitane which is so perfect for this time of year.  Let me introduce you to Violette & Rose De Mai...


I'm a fan of most things L'Occitane do - they're a faultless brand to me, and there's nothing not to love, but I'm particularly fond of their fragrances.  Delicate Peony was one of my particular favourites a few years ago, I also really liked Cherry Blossom and more recently the Rhubarb and Grapefruit scent from Christmas.  The latest offering - Violette & Rose De Mai - is a wonderful blend of violet and rose, which when sprayed immediately conjures thoughts of summer days and clean linen, and then dries down to a subtly musky floral scent.  

I always say that I'm not a fan of heavy rose scents (and I wasn't too sure what to expect from violet), but thankfully this isn't an overpowering rose at all - it's floral but also fresh as the blend combines bergamot and mandarin with a musk and sandalwood base alongside the violet and rose.  For me this is a really wearable daytime fragrance for summer time, and is a slightly more sophisticated scent than some of the really fruity floral fragrances I usually go for.  

L'Occitane's Violette & Rose De Mai eau de toilette has been released to celebrate L'Occitane's 40th anniversary and is available now in store and at loccitane.com priced at £52 for 75ml.
