One of the first signs of spring is the blooming of the Cherry tree. Cherry Blossoms are so beautiful that people will come from far away to see them bloom. In America they are all over Washington D.C. And they are a ubiquitous symbol of Japan.
The Cherry tree is an integral part of the Provençal landscape, it is widespread in the Apt region, in Luberon. It changes color with the seasons, making it a source of inspiration for artists. The blossoms are pure white in spring, bright red in summer and soft green in autumn.
L’Occitane wants to capture the Cherry Blossom with this special collection of bath and body care products. They are celebrating the poetic beauty of the cherry blossom and its delicate, feminine flowers during the first days of spring.
Fleur de Cerisier L’Eau Eau de Toilette (Cherry Blossom) 2.5 fl.oz./74 mL $50.00
This Eau de Toilette fragrance is a floral fruity yet delicate and fresh scent that will transport you to the cherry-tree-dotted hillsides of southern France. A very feminine fragrance, it is made with a cherry extract from the Luberon region of Provence. Indulge the senses with notes of freesia, cherry, lily of the valley all underlined with a base of amber and musk that lingers. Spray this on pulse points such as the neck, chest and wrists. For best results, layer with Cherry Blossom Shimmering Body Lotion so that the scent builds up and lasts longer. L’Occitane founder Olivier Baussan said the following, “It is because cherry blossoms fly away in the first breeze of spring that they are so rare and precious”.
I love how light and airy this scent is. It is the perfect spring fragrance because of how soft and delicate the scent is. Normally I don’t like anything with Lily of the Valley in it but this one is so light that it does not bother me at all. The cherry in it is fruity and floral at the same time, if you can believe that it is possible. There is a hint of something green in it to bring it back down to earth.
Cherry Blossom L’Eau Shower Milk 8.4 fl.oz./250 mL $20.00
This is a gentle shower milk that cleanses the skin and leaves it silky smooth. Skin is delicately fragranced with a fruity floral scent that is made of freesia, cherry, lily of the valley with a base of amber and musk. It feels like a soft caress from the very first cherry blossoms. This shower milk contains a cherry extract from Luberon, Provence.
This shower milk leaves the skin feeling soft and fragranced. I prefer it over a regular shower gel because my skin is very dry. It definitely is more moisturizing than a shower gel. My skin does not come out of the shower feeling itchy like it can with a shower gel, which makes me happy.
Cherry Blossom L’Eau Hand Cream 1.0 fl.oz./30 mL $12.00
Like all hand creams from L’Occitane, this hand cream has been enriched with shea butter. It helps to nourish and protect hands. This one leaves skin feeling soft, delicately fragranced with a soft, fruity floral scent that is made from freesia, cherry, lily of the valley with a base of amber and musk. The scent is a soft caress from the very first cherry blossoms. Contains a cherry extract from Luberon, Provence.
This hand cream is lighter than the usual suspects. My hands are very dry right now, from washing them all the time and the very dry air. I like this hand cream because it sinks right into my skin without leaving any residue on my hands. I can even go right back to typing or doing something and my skin is not greasy at all. This cream leaves my skin feeling very soft and fragranced like cherries. It is not heavy at all. Love it!
Cherry Blossom L’Eau Fragrance Touch 0.47 fl.oz./14 mL $22.00
This limited edition gel version of the Cherry Blossom fragrance is a perfect way to take the fragrance with you wherever you go for touch-ups. Just lightly apply it to the pulse points (such as the wrists, neck and chest) to refresh the scent of Cherry Blossom whenever you need a pick-me-up during the day. It is small enough to fit in your bag and has an applicator that makes it easy to apply the fragrance gel. Currently this item is sold out on the L’Occitane website but it is still in stock in the boutiques nationwide, but hurry, it is Limited Edition!
