L’Occitane Arlésienne Fragrance Collection for Christmas 2014

L’Occitane Arlésienne

When we think of festive fragrances we tend to think all things heady and spicy and warm – so L’Occitane’s Christmas scent, Arlésienne, came as a big surprise.



L’Occitane Arlésienne

Light, feminine and floral, this starts off with the freshness of mandarin but the main notes are saffron flower, violet and rose, sweetened with tonka bean and with a drydown of milky sandalwood.

L’Occitane Arlésienne


Inspired by the women of Arles in Provence - whose beauty and grace beguiled artists like Christian Lacroix and Van Gogh – this is a delicate, soft and flowery scent with a little bit of sweetness and sparkle, that should appeal to all ages.

The vintage-style packaging, complete with rose gold coloured caps, also lends itself nicely to present-giving (or getting) and would look lovely on your dressing table (or in my case, the top of my bookshelf, which is where I keep my current Most Loveliest Things).

The fragrance, €45.50, joins the permanent collection and is joined by ten co-ordinating body products – some of which are limited edition.

They’re all beautifully packaged and presented but the standouts, for me, are the perfumed Body Oil, €26.00, which can be used to soften and smooth both body and hair, along with a gorgeous candle, €28, and luxurious shower cream, €17.50.
