L’Occitane en Provence recently sent me this delightful scent, L’Occitane en Provence Néroli & Orchidée Eau de Toilette, which I have since been obsessed with. I find myself reaching for it on a daily basis and even carry around a mini bottle in my handbag. I hate to compare products but with a fragrance I feel it gives a good understanding of whether you may resonate with a particular type of fragrance or not. For me this scent is very similar to Burberry Body, only classier and more refined. It isn’t as sickly sweet, however, it is as bold and does have a long-lasting scent.
How pretty is the packaging? To me this fragrance gives off a “rich girl” quality. Néroli & Orchidée Eau de Toilette blends the scents of two precious white flowers in a beautiful harmony. A heart of radiant neroli essence from the Mediterranean is blended with caressing white orchid absolute from Madagascar. Fruity bursts of orange and heart notes of peach complete the sensuous bouquet, which lingers delicately on the body throughout the day. Néroli & Orchidée Eau de Toilette is part of La Collection de Grasse, named after the Mediterranean city of Grasse in Provence. The other fragrances in the collection are Jasmine & Bergamote, Magnolia & Mure, Vanille & Narcisse and Thé Vert & Bigarade.
Néroli & Orchidée Eau de Toilette retails for R825 for 75ml and is available online over here or in store (check their site for a store nearest to you).
