Here’s our pick of luxurious gift ideas from L’Occitane this season …
If you’re looking for some luxury this winter, L’Occitane has a range of gorgeous gift ideas to choose from. Whether you’d like to present someone with a treat of naturally effective skincare (we have our eye on the Immortelle Divine Trilogy set), a velvety and fragrant body cream, fine perfume or a selection of each (the beauty advent calendars are legendary), L’Occitane’s luxury gifts will transport you in style to the south of France, via exquisite natural ingredients from lavender to almond.
Here’s our pick of some luxurious gift ideas from L’Occitane this season …
L’Occitane’s perfumes are something of an insider’s secret. The memorable Terre de Lumière eau de parfum, for example, was created by a trio of top noses, including master perfumer Calice Becker. It captures the “golden hour” in the south of France, when the light is golden and the air is warm, in an aromatic gourmand fragrance that’s both fresh and sunny, with both light and earthier notes. There’s a wide range of gift sets featuring this signature scent, such as a trio of bathing beauties, the Terre de Lumiere Body Care Collection, €45 (worth €56). If you are looking for a distinctive new signature perfume to wear this winter – for him or for her – I’d also recommend a relatively undiscovered gem in the L’Occitane 86 Champs fine fragrance collection: Amber Almond eau de parfum (€100), a really rich and beautiful warm perfume that really lingers on the skin.
Who wouldn’t want a selection box featuring a fabulous round-up of L’Occitane’s greatest hits? This generous collection (€79) includes everything from Almond Shower oil to Almond Milk Concentrate, Lavender Foaming Bath, Shea Butter Hand Cream and Foot Cream, and a travel-sized Herbae par L’Occitane eau de parfum. It’s all presented in a glamorous circular box that you can re-use. And remember to bring all your empties back into store once you’ve finished: in partnership with TerraCycle, L’Occitane offers recycling for empties from any brand – as well as offering eco-conscious refills for all your favourites.
This set of full-size Divine skincare represents great value, with the Oil-to-Milk Make-up Remover, Immortelle Precious Essential Water and Immortelle Divine Cream for €99 (worth €134), all in a signature gift box. With the inimitable natural scent of Corsica’s wonder plant, Immortelle, these powerful formulas will boost skin with a natural glow and vitality. Since we’re talking luxury, could we also add in the online exclusive Alluring Red Lipstick Trio, featuring three shades of L’Occitane’s delicious lip colours (€50, worth €63.50). Inspired by juicy, ripe fruits, these lipsticks condition and plump your lips with vitamin E and essential oils including grapefruit, carrot and pomegranate.
