Herbae par L'Occitane Eau de Parfum

Herbae par L’Occitane is the beautiful new summery scent from the luxury brand.

This exquisite, fresh, floral, green nectar has been inspired by the wild grasses that grow in Provence.

A truly stunning, botanical scent, Herbae par L’Occitane is a reflection of nature in all its authenticity and simplicity.

The bottle is a beautiful physical representation of the juice within, with a simplistic and chic transparent glass bottle revealing the green juice inside. 

The cap of the bottle features a neatly tied, natural raffia bow while the tube that captures the fragrance is green, making it look very much like the stem of a  flower or plant.

Simple yet stunning, it captures and hints at what you can expect from the new scent to perfection.

­“This fragrance was inspired by diving into the heart of the wild and vibrant nature of Provence, symbolised by the abundance of wild grasses. It's a vision of nature that is raw, sincere and free of artifice– one that reveals its true, most simple beauty” say Herbae Par L’occitane perfumers Nadège Le Garlantezec and Shyamala Maisondieu.

The fresh, sparkling scent opens with notes of citrusy and spicy Ambrette Seed, Bergamot Essence and Pink Peppercorn before heart notes of soft wild rose combine with white nettle, bramble accord and clary sage essence to create a swirling, sharpness that evokes the scents of a stroll through a forest on a sunny day.

Base notes of sweet wild grass blend seamlessly with captive musk to create a warm sweetness while Cashmeran offers a complimentary woody and spicy undertone.

Well rounded, beautiful and perfect for sunny summer days, it is a truly gorgeous fragrance which sits perfectly within L’Occitane’s catalogue of scents.

I didn’t expect to like such a scent yet it offers a really beautiful and feminine lightness which is great for warm days when you don’t want to feel weighed down by heady, deep scents.

I think the simplicity of the bottle is quite a work of art too. They’ve managed to make a really plain bottle come to life thanks to the finer details such as the raffia bow and green tube. The attention to detail really pays off and the bottle is gorgeous.

The new launch also features a selection of complimentary products to allow you to extend the Herbae experience for longer and immerse yourself in it even further.

There’s a also a Shower Gel, Perfumed Soap, Hand Cream and Beauty Milk all of which feature the same addictive and beautiful scent.

I adore the shea butter enriched Beauty Milk (£24.50) which effortlessly nourishes your skin, leaving behind the green, floral scent.

Lightweight like a lotion but with all the moisturising properties of a butter, this non greasy milk is absorbed quickly, quenching parched skin and leaving it feeling soft and smelling gorgeous.

I absolutely adore this fabulously understated scent.

Bravo L’Occitane!

Herbae par L’Occitane eau de parfum is available now and costs £60 for 50ml.
