L’Occitane + Pierre Herme: 2015 Limited Editions


Post by Portia


Hey crew!

Went to lunch with my buddy Lesley from L’Occitane Australia last week. We were at a very nice restaurant, full of business people and wealthy ladies that lunch and were having the best time laughing about yucky food that our families used to eat all the time but if we were to be given them for the first time today we’d be like, “GAK! That looks DISGUSTING!!!” We laughed till we cried, seriously my tummy was so sore afterwards. Even now I am sniggering quietly to myself. Not only did we laugh like naughty schoolboys she also gave me a slew of stuff for you all to try, all new for Christmas 2015.

L’Occitane Australia have FREE DELIVERY on orders over $100 and most sets come GIFT WRAPPED.

L’Occitane + Pierre Herme

Unexpected Encounters + 2015 Limited Editions

Jasmine Immortelle Neroli Collection L'OccitaneGift Set $95 L’Occitane Australia

Jasmin, Immoertelle, Neroli by L’Occitane 2015

The fragrance of pastry chef Pierre Hermé balances the white notes of gardens at dawn with the gold of a flower that still flourishes throughout the Corsican maquis. 

On my skin Jasmin, Immoertelle, Neroli is a creamy, warm version of a citrus with some torn orange tree leaf undertones that is reminiscent of the bright openings of many Eau de Colognes. Envigorating and refreshing and smelling really good, I could easily imagine this becoming a go-to scent, it would easily fit into most situations and it dries down to softly citrus white musks that are pleasant but not groundbreaking. A very safe gifting fragrance and I love the fragrance packaging.

Miel Manderine Hand Cream - L'OCCITANEHand Cream $13 L’Occitane Australia

Miel Mandarine by L’Occitane 2015

Imagine golden honey crystallized on a sun-drenched slice of Mandarin Orange… A fruity sensation at first, progressively enriched with hints of honey, evoking the festive season, Spun Sugar and Almond. 

Pamplemousse et Rhubarbe Eau De Toilette - L'OCCITANEEau de Toilette 75ml $62 L’Occitane Australia

Pamplemousse et Rhubarbe by L’Occitane 2015

A tantalizing accord. Who other than Pierre Hermé would dare to combine the flavours of Rhubarb, Clove and Nutmeg with the temperamental scent of Grapefruit? 

By far my favourite of the trio. Sharp citrus opening, the lovely wet, super sweet (almost urinous) grapefruit sizzles in and can breathe new life into my tired brain. Fun, flirty and slightly outrageous L’Occitane and Pierre Herme have made a grapefruit macaroon. Through the heart it spices up just a little bit and the whole fragrance rests on a bed of pithy white musks that are so fluffy you may float away. I have been spritzing myself liberally before bedtime and cocooning myself against the world in Pamplemousse et Rhubarbe, it’s a perfect scent to cuddle you and send you off to the land of nod.

  1. Wonderful giveaway!
    I am overseas and following by email.

    I would love to give the Immortelle Divine Cream to a dear friend who loves immortelle in perfumes.


  2. I follow by e mail,overseas-and would give Lavande foaming bath to a dear friend and everyone else I gift because we all need to chill a bit over this upcoming season.


  3. I follow by email;
    Ohh I was in the Chadstone store only today and was using the APJ reviews to guide me.
    I came away with Liquid Verbena soap, a trio of Bonne Mere shower gels Citron, Peche, and Romarin. Plus as a little box of irrrestible favourites, perfect for travelling or guest bathrooms.
    I had a little spritz of the Iris perfume and if I could I would love to be given the Immortal face cream. So really one of everything really 😉


  4. Hello, I must admit I’ve already tried both new fragrances, and I’ve been using the Rhubarbe – Pamplemousse for the last 2 weeks, it’s so invigorating and wonderful, my boyfriend keeps stealing it!
    I’d love to win the hand cream (overseas), it sounds delicious.
    I’d gift the Neroli – Orchidee eau de toilette without hesitation, if only it wasn’t a big personal favorite – I don’t want every friend to smell like I do 🙂
    I’ve already decided to gift a nice Arlesienne set to my best friend.
    Thank you for another great presentation!
    I follow via email and on Bloglovin


  5. I have sampled both of the perfumes and love them both!
    The L’occitane item I would gift someone would be to my mother. I would choose for her one of their signature items. Shea hand cream. My mum gets dry hands, and she also has arthritis and would love the soothing effect. In fact, Xmas is coming………..thanks for getting my brain working!

    I follow by email and Facebook, and am in the Aussie bunch.


  6. I’m Aussie and follow by email.

    Such a generous giveaway! I’d love to gift the neroli & orchidee to my housemate. She loves orchids and I’m sure she would equally love this perfume.


  7. I would love to give someone the Citrus Verbena Shower gel….I adore verbena and love citrus so it is a great combination, especially for a morning shower.

    I follow by email


  8. Hi Portia, I follow you via FB and email.
    L’Occitane is so wonderful – anything from them would be a welcome gift. However if i had a wonderful man to give to, i would surely gift him a bottle of Eau des Baux aftershave. Its sooooo sexy!
    love, Patsi (in the UK)


  9. I would love to give the Shea Body Butter to a few people that have the same dry skin I do in the winter. It’s a life savor. I follow via email and live overseas (US). Thanks for the giveaway!


  10. I would love to give away the Almond shower oil plus the Almond Delicious Hands Hand Cream. Both are Products I have re-purchased many times and the hand cream sinks into the skin, giving softness but without a sticky feeling. Perfect for Our Winter and for dehydrated skin in general.

    I have to put the Miel Mandarine Hand Cream on my wishlist and try the rhubarb and grapefruit scent, too.

    I follow by e-mail and I am overseas (Scandinavia).


  11. I would give my mom the Foaming Lavender Bath salts, she loves lavender and she’s always worked so hard!
    I’m in the states, where we are celebrating our Thanksgiving. Your post made me remember the strange jello molds with weird fruit bits floating in them that she would make on holidays. I loved them, then! Mostly because they were fun to play with though, nothing to do with taste!
    I’m an email follower, thanks!


  12. I’m overseas (well you are) I follow by bloglovin. I’d love to give someone the Christmas Beauty Advent Calendar.

    I’d love to hear more about those foods!


  13. Ahhhh so many things! I follow by email, and I would love to give myself or my boyfriend (or both??) the Eau des Baux EdT. 🙂 I am in the US, thanks so much!


  14. I’m overseas/land/air…I follow your blog as well as your Facebook page. I nearly plotzed when I read this post asI am Pierre Herme’s Number One Fan (have you tried his chocolate sables? omg)…anyhoo…I would give sweet Jin some Foot Creme (if we’re keeping it local). I’d keep the Shea Body Butter for my dry-as-dust self



  15. I love L’Occitane oroducts, especially the Almond Shower Oil.
    The Divine skin care range is superb as well, when there are spare pennies in the coffer! I am in Oz and follow by email.


  16. Hello and thanks for the wonderful opportunity. I follow by email.

    I would give anything the Lavande hand cream to a lovely lady I know, my sister-in-law’s Mum. She’s a wonderful lady in her 70s with beautiful hands and that’s partly because she uses products like L’Occitane.

    And I would love to give the Advent calendar as a gift for my daughter and myself.

    Thanks again.



  17. Following by email and Bloglovin
    Both(Aussie and Overseas ) 😀
    I would give Neroli & Orchidee Star Collection – smells divine 🙂
    Thank you for this lovely giveaway 🙂


  18. I’m in the U.S. and I follow by e-mail. I would like to give my friend Debbie, The Best of L’Occitane collection because she’s had a tough time this year and deserves a little luxury. Thanks for the giveaway.

  20. After reading Portia’s review I went and tried the Shea Fabulous Oil, and found that it is, indeed, fabulous! So that would be my choice as a gift to my mum, who, like many mums, puts everyone else before herself. It would be a simple, yet luxurious, treat that she could pamper herself with every day.

    Thanks for the draw, Portia; I live in Oz and follow by email.


  21. Hello Gorgeous.
    I haven’t really tried much of L’Occitane products and only one I tried, Shea Butter hand cream, I liked. I would gift that to almost anyone.
    I follow by email and live in oz.
    This is a lovely giveaway.
