This spring, L’OCCITANE will introduce its first Gourmand Aromatic fragrance, Terre de Lumière, representing the quintessence of Provence and the essence of the L’OCCITANE brand.This new fragrance embraces femininity with a pure softness and modern boldness that transports you to the most idyllic state of beauty – the Golden Hour. Created by three renowned perfumers at the Givaudan fragrance house, it marks one of the most complex and sophisticated fragrances from L’OCCITANE.
“It really was a journey for us. Each one brought her own world, her own emotions. This fragrance brings together, in perfect harmony, so many sensations that come from our experiences. That’s what gives it so many facets,” says trio of perfumers Calice Becker, Nadege Le Garlantezee and Shyamala Maisondieu.
COMPOSITION AND DESIGN
The inspiration for this multi-faceted fragrance is the light in Provence during the Golden Hour. A magical moment. A moment of serenity.
Terre de Lumière ($98) – 90ml: starts with an aromatic and fresh burst of zesty top notes that unexpectedly melt into an infinitely gourmand heart, before settling into sensual balsamic and musky base notes. At the heart of the multi-faceted fragrance lies the most sought-after and complex honey –lavender honey accord. Its delicious aroma layers fruity flavor with subtle floral notes to make it a true “grand cru” honey. In liquid form, its magnificent golden color transforms the landscape of Provence into a breathtaking field of gold, an encounter between an aromatic facet and a gourmand heart, it is an unexpected paradox.
Terre de Lumière infuses light into the fragrance with exclusive raw materials, known as Orpur® *. These ingredients are selected by a committee of master perfumers, from Givaudan fragrance house, with the greatest care and consideration for olfactory purity, origin and traceability. Five naturals from the Orpur® collection were used in the composition of this fragrance including Bergamot, Fine lavender, Ambrette seed, Beeswax, Tonka bean, and Sylkolide® musk.
When it came to the design of Terre de Lumière, L’OCCITANE brought to life the luxurious simplicity of Provence. The bottle is iconic and elegant with a sensual shape. The cap represents a pebble picked up in a lavender field as the sun sets. It glows with light and soaked in the colors of sunset.
- Gentle Shower Gel ($20) –250 ml: This gentle shower gel gives a feeling of aromatic freshness and exquisite sensuality.
- Beautifying Body Lotion ($27) –250 ml: With its subtly iridescent texture, this moisturizing body milk illuminates the skin and leaves it delicately perfumed.
