Ahhh L’occitane fragrance. Such a wonderful taste of Europe…but sadly ever so short wearin’, le sigh.
I still wanted to get my grubby, greedy little hands on the new L’occitane Peony Eau de Toilette, long wearing or not.
What is it?
A celebration of the peony! An Eau de Toilette that captures the subtle, floral fragrance of the peony flower.
Ahh how gorgeous tis is. Now, be aware I’m not fond of florals but some can capture and hold my interest on occasion and L’occitane Peony Eau de Toilette happens to be one. This is a fresh bouquet of peonies and rose petals with tiny bursts of tart grapefruit and a soft dry down of sandalwood and white musk.
For the most part the peony and rose notes dominate the blend but on occasional you’ll catch faint whispers of grapefruit and a cleaner, powdery dry down from the musk. It’s quite richly floral so if you aren’t a fond fan of florals in any way, shape, or form best avoid however if you like a little floral here and there or simply rejoice in floral blends this should appeal.
Surprisingly, for L’occitane, there isn’t anything bad to say about it. I say surprised as at this point in the review I’d proceed to tell you I was slightly disappointed at the wear time as L’occitane and I don’t get on well when it comes to long wear. However, Peony Eau de Toilette has quite a throw and a good deal of linger for an EDT format.
Who might like it?
- Anyone who’s up for a soft floral, feminine blend!
- Anyone who likes peonies, oh and roses too!
- Anyone who enjoys L’occitane fragrances.
Who might not like it?
- Anyone who isn’t a floral fragrance lover.
I’m quite happy I picked this up. It’s a fresh Spring blend that has a nice soft edge and remains very flirty without being cloying as some florals are. If you want it I do highly suggest snagging it as soon as possible as it’s already sold out online and my friend Jai fell deeply in lust with it so I gave him mind after we tried locating a bottle at two different shops…that was fast! Obviously a hot commodity eh? Hopefully Jai gives me partial custody.
Worth your sniffle!
