Something In The Air


L'Occitane Figuier Osmanthus EDT

What It Is: Given we’re in the height of summer season, I shouldn’t have to tell you that it’s totally normal and common to want to switch up your beauty routine a bit. I don’t blame you. When it’s 30 degrees out, it’s hard to feel motivated to slather on piles of makeup and wear a heavily fragranced perfume. Luckily, brands like L’Occitane are reacting accordingly and releasing light and fresh scents to carry you through the hottest months of the year – like their new Figuier & Osmanthus eau de toilette.

Designed to capture the essence of summertime in Provence, this elegant perfume brings together fruity, flowery, and woodsy notes for a bright, vibrant aroma. As per the title of the scent, the two key notes are fig (from Provence) and osmanthus (a flower primarily found in Asia). But take a second whiff and you’ll detect spicy bergamot, juicy blackcurrant, green leaves, and a musky, cedar base note. It’s a perfect, ladylike fragrance that never feels too heavy and will lift your spirits as bright as the sun this season.

Who It’s For: Your mom, as a fantastic birthday gift. Your wife, as a lovely anniversary present. Your sister, as a thank you pick.

What It Costs: $48 for a 30 ml bottle.

Where It’s At: L’Occitane stores nationwide and online.

  44. Shelley N says:

    I want to try this since I am looking for a new fragrance which can replace my present one. My present one has been discontinued (I seem to be the kiss of death for any fragrance -this is the 4th time a fragrance I love has been eliminated). I like lighter scents so this sounds ideal

  45. Susan says:

    I would love to try this eau de toilette from L’Occitane. I prefer light fragrances and rarely spend the money on myself to buy such treats. This would be a wonderful gift!

  48. I am a scent addict. Scent is one of my most important senses. I have so far love almost all of L’Occitane’s fragrances and am looking forward to trying Osmanthus.

  49. lindsay d. says:

  51. Annie says:

    I don’t have a light scent to wear this time of year so I would love to try this. Also, if I can’t actually travel to Provence the second best would be Figuier & Osmanthus eau de toilette!
