Work Your Magic


We’re in the home stretch (sort of) people! If you’re getting serious about gift shopping this week, may I recommend a visit to your local L’Occitane boutique (or online store)? I have to say, I really love the spin L’Occitane has put on their holiday line. Instead of going for a traditional ‘scents of the season’ collection, the brand has rolled out some delightful gift sets themed around the magic of the season, along with two brand new limited-edition scents. And with that, I present to you my top five L’Occitane gift picks!

loccitane marvelous flowers gift box

For Your Sister: Marvellous Flowers Star Gift Set – $70
One of L’Occitane’s new holiday fragrances this year is ‘Marvellous Flowers’. The pretty pink packaging makes it an apt choice for your feminine mama or sister, but the gold accents, stars, and whimsical elf design of the packaging immediately ties it into Christmas. As for the scent? As you probably guessed, it does feature floral notes – like fragrant peony and rose – mixed with citrus fruits, red berries, and gentle musk. This gift set is perfect for the L’Occitane fan that hasn’t sampled their new scents, but is already familiar with their luxurious moisturizing body care goodies. Wrap yourself in Marvellous Flowers when you indulge in the set’s hand cream, shower gel, soap bar, and eau de toilette!

Magical Leaves

For Your Best Friend: Magical Leaves Handbag Essentials Set – $28
I’d hedge a bet that most people that have heard anything at all about L’Occitane, are aware of their bestselling hand creams. In fact, their creams are so popular, one is sold every three seconds around the world! Meaning by the time you read through this post, dozens of folks are on their way to smoother, softer hands. If you’re keen to get your hands whipped into buttery-soft shape, you should try out the other new holiday fragrance from L’Occitane – Magical Leaves. Wrapped in an elf-inspired green, this slightly earthier scent features a bright citrus splash tempered by soft vanilla, petit grain, and hazelnut. This gift set features three travel-friendly products in the new scent, although it should be noted you can also upsize to a Star Gift Set similar to the one I featured above.

Relaxing Lavender Gift Set L'Occitane

 

For The New Mom: A Lavender Spa – $70
Even if you don’t know much about aromatherapy – that is, the art of using scents to alter our physical and mental health – chances are you know that lavender is known for its relaxing, sleep-inducing properties. If you’d like to send someone on a restful slumber, this all-encompassing set smells absolutely amazing, and will help anyone unwind, whether after a you’re feeling tense after a long day at work or you’re a new mom hoping for a good night’s sleep. Dip into a perfumed bath, lather up with a bar of soap, and keep the soothing feeling going with the included hand cream and wash, body lotion, and a perfumed sachet to make your linen closet or PJ drawer smell divine.

Bonne Mere Soap Collection L'Occitane

 

For The Hostess: Bonne Mère Soap Collection – $15
A good hostess always has nice soaps out by the sink, so why not put her a step ahead with this three-pack of L’Occitane’s Marseilles soaps, made in the tradition of French soap making. Naturally, coming from a brand that happens to be a known expert on hand care, the apothecary-styled soaps won’t dry out your hands. What they will do is release a full-bodied scent, like Honey, Lavender, or Rose, as featured in this ready-to-give collection.

Nourishing Shea Butter Collection L'OccitaneFor Anyone: Shea Embrace Gift Set – $94
Even guys will appreciate this ultra-soothing, totally-smoothing gift set, featuring L’Occitane’s signature Shea Butter products. That’s not say any gal on your list wouldn’t be equally pleased – it’s why I’ve deigned this one the universal gift, at a great value (altogether the products are worth nearly $30 more if purchased individually). Take extra gentle care of your skin with the included foot and hand creams, soap, body wash, body lotion, and shower creams for the ultimate winter defence kit, all rendered in gender-neutral, all-natural scent.

This is REALLY just scratching the surface of what L’Occitane has on offer. If you’ve never popped into one of their boutiques before, I strongly encourage you to make the trip – you’ll feel transported to the high streets of France, and I swear after a single use, your hands and body will be begging for more from L’Occitane. If you’re already on the L’Occitane train, good news: you could win a Shea Embrace Gift Set OR A Lavender Spa Set. Here’s how to enter:
