|L'Occitane en Provence's Lavande de Haute-Provence Eau de Cologne|
Discover how well lavender blooms among a fruit orchard is my first thought of how I would describe L'Occitane en Provence's Lavande de Haute-Provence Eau de Cologne. Unlike the original, the reformulated version of this unisex fragrance gained a light, appealing freshness and added femininity with the way the floral, fruits, and woody-musk notes play together.
With top notes of lavender, bergamot, and peach, Lavande opens like blossoms awakening to the sun. You can almost smell the combined nectars of those ripe fruits and lavender in the air, naturally brightening the sweetness. The effect is a new softness to the lavender, a delicate transparency that is serenely beautiful.
Once the freesia and marigold emerge in the heart, there is romance blooming as well in this updated blend.
The fragrance is so inviting and comfortable. At the same time, Lavande is also surprisingly sophisticated just as it is dreamy due to the woods and musk in the base notes. This is an incredibly easy to wear fragrance that will lift your spirits with untold joy and happy expectations.
Honestly, I thought the original was a bit too masculine smelling and heavy on the lavender. On the other hand, Lavande de Haute-Provence is what I consider an escape to a perfect and blissful summer day where you don't have a care in the world with how peaceful you feel wearing this lavender fragrance. I simply adore it!
The Lavande de Haute-Provence Eau de Cologne retails for $52 for a huge 10.1 fl. oz. bottle. Also available is an organic body care lotion, massage gel, hand cream, aromatic scented candle, and shower gel in the collection.
