I don’t really have a signature fragrance and I’m not really looking for one, because I love using new scents. I think it’s time to switch up my summer scent and try something new.
The four fragrances below all have a floral heart to them and are such a fresh change from the usual beachy summer scents. I love them all!
Rose et Reines Eau de Toilette ($50 2.5 fl. oz.) — Roses et Reines Eau de Toilette is a fresh and velvety fragrance, a floral tale that celebrates the flower of queens. The muses that inspired this fragrance, the four daughters of the Count of Forcalquier, all cherished roses: the flowers that were said to have made them queens. Their favorite roses – the Grasse rose, Bulgarian rose, Moroccan rose and Turkish rose ̶ are brought together in this precious scent, enhanced by a unique rose extract from Haute-Provence with delicate fruity notes.
The Roses et Reines collection uses rose extract derived through enfleurage, a traditional process made innovative by the L’OCCITANE research team. The freshest of rose petals are steeped in oil, allowing it to become saturated with the natural fragrance of the rose, resulting in a fruitier scent.
