|L'Occitane's Jasmin & Bergamote Eau de Toilette Spray|
When I learned what L'Occitane en Provence envisioned with the Grasse Collection, I eagerly anticipated what those new divine creations would smell like once founder, Olivier Baussan and perfumer, Karine Dubreuil brought historic essences that distinguished Grasse for perfumery and paired them for this recently launched line of April 2013.
Simply put, this collection is a celebration of the ceaseless beauty from nature, landscapes, and the exciting atmosphere of Southern France brought to you in the purest form.
Take Jasmin & Bergamote, the first of the four fragrances that I will be sharing with you in future reviews, that is truly magnificent for complimenting two notes in such a balanced way that the white floral against the fresher bergamot, gracefully float like a soft breeze against a blooming field.
This romantic fragrance is so delicate and yet refined with how the almost transparent notes of rare petals and green leaves mesh against the uplifting, but an equally sheer layer of bergamot in perfect harmony between freshness and sensuality.
Wearing this fruity-floral fragrance can be compared to living a beautiful dream that leaves you wondering if that bliss you are experiencing is real or a product of your subconscious because of how the scent lingers to haunt you with its innocent simplicity.
The longevity of this eau de toilette will surprise you as well. I was thrilled at how many hours this fragrance lasted without fading.
If you are drawn to floral fragrances with jasmine, I urge you to try Jasmin & Bergamote products from this collection. However, I do need to point out if you are expecting the scent to be overly sweet and overflowing with jasmine, you will not find it. Instead, this scent sways like the perfect partner matching your every move to a slow romantic dance with how exquisitely the notes unfold and glide.
The 2.5 oz. Jasmin & Bergamote Eau de Toilette retails for $75. Also, available is a matching 6-oz. body milk and shower gel for $20 each, and a perfumed soap for $8.
I honestly fell in love with this scent and can't wait to test the other remaining scents in this Grasse collection because they are something truly to behold and bask in.
Do visit L'Occitane and pick this fragrance up. Trust me on this, you too will helplessly slip into the same lovely dream with certainty because this is the magical component that is a part of this fragrance.
