Every time I pass by L’Occitane at the mall, I have to stop and do a little test drive of the products that are always on display in the front of the store. Have you tried L’Occitane products before? They are literally to die for and I am 99% positive that no one makes a better hand cream. If you are looking for a Mothers Day gift idea, let me tell you, anything that I am showing you today will knock your mommas boots off (yeah, I just wrote that) in the bath and body department.
Get ready for awesome. I am even going to start this post off by posing (oh yeah) with the L’Occitane Neroli Orchidee fragrance, just for for fun. I mean, why not? Plus, my nail color is rockin…gotta show it off somehow.
And just for kicks, I am going to pretend that you are in the room with me right now and I am making you try this fragrance because it’s awesome.
side note: This pictures takes me back to high school when my now sister in law was being super annoying and dowsing me with about 100 bottles of perfume. Don’t worry, I made sure to return the favor.
NÉROLI & ORCHIDÉE EAU DE TOILETTE
Brand Overview: A tantalizing and lovely fragrance, Néroli & Orchidée Eau de Toilette blends the scents of two precious white flowers in a beautiful harmony. A heart of radiant neroli essence from the Mediterranean is blended with caressing white orchid absolute from Madagascar. Fruity bursts of orange and heart notes of peach complete the sensuous bouquet, which lingers delicately on the body throughout the day.
My Thoughts: Well, when my fragrance picky husband comments on my perfume, I know it’s a major hit. When I first sprayed this one, what I noticed most was the white orchid. Then as the fragrance settled more, I could smell the citrus and something that was slightly peppery. But what stood out to me most about the L’Occitane Neroli Orchidee is that the scent lasted for a long, long time. I could even smell it faintly on my neck and wrists when I woke up in the morning, 12 hours later.

Brand Overview: Envelop your skin with the tantalizing fragrance of our Néroli & Orchidée Body Milk, a lovely harmony of two precious white flowers. Perfect for daily use, this fresh body milk moisturizes the skin, leaving it delicately fragranced. Made with neroliessence from the Mediterranean and white orchid absolute from Madagascar, it leaves behind a floral, fruity fragrance.
My Thoughts: This Body Milk is completely non greasy, moisturizing, and smelled delicious. When I first applied it, the fruity smell came out the most and then settled into a nice floral/citrus combination. This Neroli & Orchidee Body Milk worked best on my legs, but it wasn’t enough moisture to be a hand cream.
