L'occitane Pivoine Delicate Collection
I went to the launch of L'occitane's new, limited edition collection Pivione Delicate a while ago and I promised I'd show you guys the products that we got to try out. So here we go!
First off, a little bit about the collection. This whole collection is based around the gorgeous peony flower. These specific flowers are grown and harvested from the Riviere nursery in the Drome region of France, where they've been grown for 160 years now.
The collection is made up of eight products and I have three of them to show you today! Let's start with the main piece in the collection, the eau de toilette.
L'occitane Pivoine Delicate Eau de Toilette
The eau de toilette comes in a very simple, pretty bottle. The perfume itself has a pinky tone, so it looks almost as pretty as it smells. I can't really think of a better word to describe it than "feminine". I think we all know a girlie-girl who is always in dresses and loves to bake, sew and knit. This is the perfect perfume for those girls. It has top notes of white peach and citrus fruits, heart notes of roses, peony and lily of the valley and base notes of white musk and light woods. It's actually very light and very floral.
Next up we have a very gorgeous item, the shimmering powder.
L'occitane Pivoine Delicate Shimmering Powder
I can't get over how gorgeous this product is. It comes in a vintage-style spray bottle which makes it even better! The powder contains tiny silver glitter flecks in a really fine, shimmery pink powder base. It's just GORGEOUS. It smells divine (just like the EDT) and you can use it on your hair or body. I'm actually keeping this in my makeup kit because it looks so pretty on the chest and shoulders.
I couldn't get a good swatch of this powder, so I'm hoping this close up will do it justice!
Last but not least, this is a product that I think will come in super handy. It's the gloss and eau de toilette duo.
L'occitane Pivoine Delicate Eau De Toilette and Lip Gloss Duo
I think this is such a great product because it's so easy to carry around. It will take up no space in your purse, and it's the perfect size for traveling. This duo will ensure that you reach your destination looking and smelling pretty. The EDT has a roller ball so you can quickly apply it to your wrists to get rid of "airplane smell" (blech) The lipgloss is a gorgeous peachy color that will work on almost everyone and it has a slight shimmer to it as well.
A close up of the duo
This collection is now available in all L'occitane stores, and there are actually 8 products in the whole collection. Check out the L'occitane website for more info, there will definitely be (at least) one product that you will wanna try out!
