Review: L’Occitane Does Au Bresil Exclusive Fragrance Collection #L’Occitane

day and night fragrance duoA couple of weeks ago I posted a press release of the new L’Occitane Au Bresil Fragrance Collection that coincides with the FIFA World Cup coming up next month in Brazil. I will be watching all of the festivities as my husband is Greek and a HUGE soccer fan. I mean huge, to the point of at least 3 British and Spanish soccer games a weekend during the regular season. It was with great pleasure that I wanted to try out some of the L’Occitane products that came out for this collection. I am so glad I did! Such lovely items.

L’Occitane introduces Feito No Bresil (Made in Brazil), a collection of products devoted to the the home of the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics. The products in these collections are made with ingredients indigenous to Brazil. In these sun care, fragrance and body care collections, each beauty product is associated with three Brazilian elements: a biogeographical region, an ingredient and an artist. It was important to work with local artists on the labels. A Brazilian illustrator was entrusted with creating a design to represent each of the star ingredients: Vitória Régia and Jenipapo.
Vitória Régia is a line of fragrant products that evoke the two phases of the water lily, day and night. Two new fragrances were inspired by the different phases of this flower. Vitória Régia Day Flower and Vitória Régia Night Flower follow the rhythm of the intense, transient life of the aquatic plant discovered in the 19th century, during the time of Queen Victoria. This "star of the Amazonian waters" sleeps during the day, its petals folded over as if to protect itself from the rays of the sun. During the night, the lily transforms. It blooms in the soft light of the moon, beneath the stars, its petals blushed pink.  The next day, it fades away, giving its place to a new one. At the heart of the day fragrance, notes of Gardenia, Victoria Amazonica and Lily of the Valley escape delicately from the sleeping petals, leaving in their wake aquatic undertones of Musk, Amber and Heliotrope.

I tried out the Eau de Cologne day flower, which has a beautiful soft and very feminine scent.The notes of Gardenia and Lily of the Valley are present as the top notes. As they fade it leaves notes of Amber, Musk and Heliotrope. So it is a floral fragrance but with notes of a sexy woodsy/floral scent too.

The Night Flower exudes notes of Lime and Water Hyacinth at the heart of the fragrance, with a hint of Peony. At the base of the fragrance is Musk and Sandalwood.

The Jenipapo range was born from the jenipapo fruit tree, which grows as tall and as quickly as possible, in order to rise above the canopy and soak up the energy of the sun. Its benefits are well known by the native population. Jenipapo is a line of sun care and fragrance products for the face and body, inspired by the protective and moisturizing properties of the fruit from Brazil's Cerrito Savannah trees. The jenipapo releases a scent with green, floral, fruity notes. Citrus, Water melon and Pinna Colada mix with delicate hints of Lily of the Valley in the shade of Frangipani trees. The final lingering scents blend Musk, Sandalwood and Vanilla in a captivating, sensual, feminine fragrance.

Ultra-light, sensual sun care formulas to help prevent sunburn. Apply generously – and often! Filled with freshness and exotic fruits, the scent is perfect for summer! I was able to try out the Perfumed roll on of the Jenipapo fragrance. It is a fruit floral fragrance that is light and fun, perfect for summer. This is great to carry in your handbag for touch ups during the day. A light citrus fragrance that has some hints of watermelon, pinna colada and lily of the valley. It dries down to a light musk and vanilla.
