|Fleur D'Or & Acacia|
Despite the harsh realities of a winter landscape, there is delicate floral beauty blooming to counteract that bleakness thanks to L'Occitane en Provence founder, Olivier Baussan and perfumer, Karine Dubreuil. Due to the expansion of the La Collection de Grasse of perfumes, which draws inspiration from the historic essences of the region that made Grasse famous for perfumery, there is reason to celebrate because Fleur d'Or & Acacia is here!
The fragrance is like an unexpected bit of bright summer as it opens with juicy notes of lemon and bergamot. You can almost feel the sun on your face again as that aroma of citrus ripens somewhere in the distance. The effect is light and refreshing.
Once the floral notes of mimosa and acacia emerge in the heart, Fleur d'Or & Acacia becomes a powdery yellow floral with a tempting honey-like sweetness. Suddenly you find yourself in a field surrounded by wild flowers and trees with low-hanging fruit that you have an innocent urge to pick. How you arrived there is curious, but you find it the most beautiful, romantic place imaginable with almost a golden glow to it just like this fragrance.
The way the base of white woods and musk temper that lush golden floral sweetness is haunting and softly seductive.
Fleur d'Or & Acacia is very feminine as well as a graceful, golden floral fragrance that I found quite enchanting. There is a delicate airy quality to this floral that is precious and unique just as much as the others in the La Collection de Grasse perfumes that I have shared with you with Jasmine & Bergamote, Magnolia & Mure, Vanille & Narcisse, and The Vert & Bigarade.
Take it from Mary, picking up a bottle of L'Occitane en Provence's Fleur D'Or & Acacia is the perfect way to feel the sun's golden rays again. The 2.5 oz. eau de toilette retails for $75.
