{The Powder Room} Treats from L'Occitane

Many of you will know the name straight away, L'Occitane is one of those companies that's name carries a lot of weight (they began in 1976 - 3 years before the wonder that is moi was born) as much as I adored the sound and visions of their products, I had sadly never used any of them. But, thanks to winning a lovely giveaway from the gorgeous Emma at Fluff & Fripperies & the prize being some L'Occitane goodies, I was about to banish that fact!

*Note: This isn't a sponsored post, I won these products. All opinions are completely my own*



As soon as I opened the bag, I was instantly hit with a variety of different scents and gorgeously packaged treats, these are the kind of products you leave out for guests to see, as it will instantly grab their curiosity and soon enough they will be asking you about them. Inside the bag I received 4 items, Pivoine Flora Petal Soap, Fleur Cherie Soap, Feuille De Figuier (Fig Tree Leaf) Scented Candle & Fleurs de Cerisier (Cherry Blossom) Solid Perfume - If you know me well enough, you will already know that I am crazy for florals in both fashion and scent, so I was pretty much skipping over the moon already & couldn't wait to try these...although they were almost too pretty looking to try...almost I say - almost!

125g for £7
Sizzling Heart ♥ 5/5


This fragrance tantalizes the senses with that of fresh blooming peony bud in the delicate spring sun with the morning dew still gently wrapped on it's petals...the scent was bursting and overpowering (some may like this, some might not) I felt like I was actually sitting in a garden full of peonies (my favourite flower by the way next to lilies) it was a real powdery-floral scent, not synthetic or sickly sweet. And the soap cleansed the skin thoroughly without over drying...it just left it soft with a pleasant kiss of fragrance....delightful! 





~ Feuille De Figuier (Fig Tree Leaf) Scented Candle ~
100g for £13
Sizzling Heart ♥ 5/5

I had never in my life smelled Fig Tree before, so I was unsure what to expect, it's completely different to any candle I've gotten before. Before lighting, the aroma is quite earthy...Yet you can smell a touch of sweetness just behind this...once lit, it made me think of sitting near the fig tree & breathing in it's scent, fruit un-picked & roots still deep into the earth it's life-line, rather than the strange synthetic fake smell you can get from some candles. Deep heady scent, smoky with sweet undertones. Safe to say, for something that I wasn't sure what to expect from, I actually really love this candle...makes me think of springs & summers spent out in the country with nothing but beautiful trees to climb and swing from...a 'real' smell if that makes sense!?!




75g for £11.45
Sizzling Heart ♥ 5/5

This plant based soap is slightly different from the Pivoine Floral Petal soap, this has a more a delicate floral scent, so I smelled soap more than floral. It contains neroli and orange blossom absolute from the Mediterranean. As far as the scent goes at first smell, I prefer the Pivoine Floral Petal scent as its more on the floral side, though I liked that this one's scent was a bit more toned down. Plant based, it has a gentle lather & rinses really well. A really gorgeous lush soap.


10ml for £7.50
Sizzling Heart ♥ 5/5  

So Cherry blossom trees are my favourite trees, Its what I daydream about during the long winter months as they sit outside my house & I love watching them bloom. This solid perfume comes in 10ml tin and it's perfect for keeping in your bag throughout the day. The scent in the tin is a strong floral, but on the skin it's refreshing and feminine...what I love about this aroma is that it smells so real, it's not like your  smelling a product, but the real flower. 

Overall, I loved each product & would most definitely buy them again. My favourite was the Cherry Blossom solid perfume, I'd like to try the Pivoine Flora in another form, sometimes actual bars of soap present a different aroma than a shower gel or an actual perfume does, I usually buy the perfumes first then the soaps, so I'd like to see how they stand the other way around. L'Occitane is most definitely a gorgeous company that I've enjoyed & will treat myself to something new to try in the future! 

Have you tried any L'Occitane products before?? 

Happy Wednesday to you dolls

  8. Morning Kizzy! Im glad you finally got the chance to try this brand, it is really good and one of my fav. Their products are great with an unique and mesmerizing scent. Well done for the prize, each pieces inspire me but most of all Id love to try the solid perfume. I also love Cherry Blossom trees, I believe the fragrance must be like the real flower, so perfect for the spring. And you know, I havent had a solid perfume so far. Happy Wed dear, many hugs and kisses!:*

    1. Hello lovely!! Thank you....I think you would like to try this perfume, it really is a wonderful scent!!

Indeed, just like real flowers too :) I hope you have a gorgeous day my sweet! Many hugs and kisses to you too :*

  9. I've never actually heard about them! Must be due to the country difference.
    They all look so pretty!

  10. Lovely pretty things my dear!
    I am ever curious about the ideology of cherry blossoms around the world. I east Africa we do not have these trees, instead we have jacarandas that seem to follow the fleeting fragility of the ones in Japan. Blooming with all their heart for a short flash of time before cascading in all beauty into nothingness.....

    1. Thank you. I love cherry blossoms...the jacarandas sound very interesting, I must look them up to see what they look like. They do bloom for such a short time, but when they do, it's amazingly gorgeous!! xx

  11. They all sound great - especially the candle! It was hard to figure out what it might smell like from the name, you described it well for me to imagine it :)

  36. When I was younger I used to by soaps in pretty shapes. But I never actually used them, since that will ruin the shape of it. So they just lied around until they got old and didn't smell so good anymore... Haha! I remember actually having a soap shaped as a a little cat :) The only thing I have tried from L'Occitaine is a face scrub - which I loved! So I can imagine the products you got are really nice. Congratulations for winning them by the way! :) xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
