At least one month ago my husband picked up more Almond Shower Oil, plus the Almond Milk Concentrate. The sales representative also gave my husband a sample of one of the latest fragrances from the L’Occitane La Collection De Grasse, which is their Spring 2013 collection. She had run out of three of the four scents, and was left with only Vanille & Narcisse, which is fine with me because I fell in-love with it. I guess that’s why it is described as “warm and intoxicating” because intoxicating was it.
Karine Dubreuil, the private perfumer for L’Occitane, developed the L’Occitane La Collection De Grasse as a reminder of her childhood.
“It’s really a love story between L/Occitane and myself. I was brone in Grasse, I was raised in Grasse, I studied in Grasse. Creating this collection was just like writing about what I grew up with… my emotions, my heritage. I think that’s why we understood each other right away.”
The L’Occitane La Collection De Grasse consists of four fragrances: Jasmin & Bergamote (elegant & romantic), Magnolia & Mure (mysterious & sophisticated , Vanille & Narcisse (warm & intoxicating), and The Vert & Bigarade (fresh & vibrant).

Now back to Vanille & Narcisse, which I’m wearing today! If you follow me on twitter (@MakeupKimPorter), I tweet whenever I wear this. That’s how much I love it. I’m surprised since I don’t really care for vanilla scents, but this one isn’t overpowering at all! I guess what I also like about it is the blackcurrant in it. Also, for it to be an Eau de toilette it lasts a long time. I’d definitely purchase this, and soon since my sample is running out!
The L’Occitane La Collection de Grasse is fairly priced; the Eau de Toilette $75, Shower Gel $18, Body Milk $20, Perfumed Soap $8 or you can get the whole set for $95-$113. It’s actually on sale right now for $95, I’d jump on this because it’s the perfect Mother’s Day Gift.
