L'Occitane Roses et Reines Collection

This scent brings back so many good memories!

I used to live near Golden Gate Park in SF, right next to the rose garden, and this new scent by L’Occitane, Roses et Reines, smells just like when I’d walk through the park when the roses were in bloom.

Roses et Reines means “Roses and Queens” in French. 🙂

“The queen of flowers is an olfactory, evocative muse that inspired L’OCCITANE, perfumer in Provence, to create the captivating tale of a fresh and velvety Eau de Toilette. This tale goes back to the legend of the Count of Forcalquier and his four daughters, who became queens through love, and through their favorite roses.”

–L’Occitane PR

According to L’Occitane, they used roses from Bulgaria, Turkey, Grasse, Morocco and Provence in the fragrance (I guess that’s neat).

I love rosy scents… My first ever “big girl” perfume was YSL’s Paris, which I wore as a senior in high school.

This one feels fresh, light and modern to me, as far as rose scents go. I think some of them seem very heavy and dated.

It opens with bergamot and blackcurrent notes, before moving into rose and raspberry, and then drying down to deeper blackberry, cedar, musk and heliotrope.

Very feminine and delicate.

I’ve been enjoying three things from this new collection — the Hand & Nail Cream (absorbs quickly), Beautifying Body Milk (moderately moisturizing and great for summer) and the Eau de Toilette (sparkling and fresh).

  1. The retro packaging is not my thing, and I am also not very big on rose scents. Next line please, L’Occitane! 😉

    I don’t really care for the smell of roses much to wear the perfume but the hand cream sounds interesting. I love their hand creams!

    Happy Friday! Don’t you love when a scent brings back a happy memory? I’m glad this one reminds you of walking in the park. 🙂

    I know you’ve been doing a lot of Netflixing. Did you check out Rectify? (season 1 is on netflix and season 2 is going on right now on Sundance on Thursday nights). If you have, I’d be interested to hear what you think. I really like it but no one I know is watching it. Of course, I understand it’s not for everyone.

    LOVE the scent of roses!! SO romantic!! As soon as I read this part of your blog I logged onto Nordstrom’s website, and yes, they have the Roses et Reines line. And – drum roll, please – there is a very nice Gift with Purchase, with purchase of $65+. Looks like I’m going to be doing a little shopping…
    Thank you Karen, so glad I discovered your (and Tab’s) blog!

    Someday I will save up enough to try some L’Occitane stuff 🙂 Every so often I will go past one of their stores, and just kind of stop, and breathe in 🙂 My wishlist is pretty long from them!
