Light and fresh with a little citrus, green, and floral,  L'Occitane en Provence's Verbena Eau de Toilette, is the perfect middle ground between fresh and floral in this beautiful, soothing fragrance.  Whether you're looking for a clean type of almost a unisex scent or something not to overpower co-workers, this floral-citrus eau de toilette will wonderfully fit the bill.

The opening is both brisk and bright with notes of lemon and orange.  Though a bit tart and invigorating, the fragrance is pleasantly refreshing. Soon, however, the middle notes of the heart kick in with the influx of lemon verbena and petit grain adding more green and woods, giving the mix more depth and interesting contrast as it warms.  As the fragrance dries down, the rose and geranium notes create a floral softness to the combination that is so inviting.

Some would consider Verbena more appropriate for wearing in the summer.  Since this lovely fragrance is so wonderfully uplifting to brighten a day without overpowering, my feeling is this scent can be worn in all seasons. 

I just love the way this fragrance can make even a bad day seem better with its zingy aroma and mood changing, calming freshness.

The 3.4 oz. Verbena Eau de Toilette Spray retails for $52.  Do visit L'Occitane and look into that fragrance as well as the other Verbena products in this collection.  Take it from Mary B.  You will like Verbena!
