What a way to welcome in Spring than with what L'Occitane captured to bottle in their new limited-edition Spring Cherry body care collection.  This is a very feminine fruity-floral that will blossom with untold fresh beauty from the moment you wear it just like the season of its inspiration!  I was fortunate to receive the Eau de Toilette Spray and the Velvet Moisturizing Body Gel to experience the French wonder for myself.  

The fragrance is a happy mix of fresh floral and luscious fruits that play together in the warm sun.  Visualize an orchard of cherry trees loaded with fragrant white blossoms, gradually coaxed to share their sweetness by the golden rays of sun pouring over the Luberon Mountains.  So tempting is this nectar that butterflies and bees take flight, each competing to sample that fruity essence while a gentle breeze brings the scent of  its top notes of  blackcurrants and mandarin orange with it from somewhere off in the distance.  

Laughter abounds from children running between the trees followed by a young woman chasing after them. With their oranges in hands, they stop at times and eat and then squirt the others with the citrus.  

Once she catches up with her charges, the young woman takes them back to town where a cart with a flower seller persuades her to buy a bouquet of magnolia and freesia.  Soon she is dreaming of love and anticipating what romantic prospects Spring will bring for her, inhaling the flowers that combine with that brightness of that cherry perfume floating in the air.  Those are the notes of the heart.

The sounds of restless arguing children suddenly bring her back to reality.  Smirking to herself, she wants to scold them but she is too happy to do so.  Her heart is full of nothing but love.  Despite that broken magical spell induced by that sweetness, she laughs with pure joy before grabbing their hands as they skip along.

Before long, the wind  whips up an earthy scent to that perfume in the base with notes of woods, musk, and mysterious floral she can't pinpoint, a hint of the iris, perhaps?  Nothing those children do can stop her pleasure now and she knows this will be her time--the Spring when true love will find her!

Whether you chose to loose yourself in the 1.7 fl. oz. Spring Cherry Eau de Toilette that retails for $40 or the 8.4 Velvet Moisturizing Gel that sells for $25 and leaves you silky as well as scented, you would do yourself a disservice if you failed to sample this L'Occitane limited-edition fragrance and body care collection yourself.  Also available is the Soft Hand Cream ($10), Iridescent Shower Gel ($20), and Soap ($5).
