It's about this time in grown-up-land where we wish we could put everything on pause, pack our bags, and jet-set off somewhere far — away from spring breakers and the slew of tourists that onslaught NYC the second the thermometer hits 50°. (For the record, it was 60° yesterday. Squee!)
But while we wait for our properly planned summer escapes, there is one solution — a mental vacay, if you will — L'Occitane's new La Collection de Grasse. Each scent from the four-part collection contains a note signature to France (Grasse, France is the world perfumery capital, be-tee-dubs) and another from an exotic Mediterranean locale. (Sigh, if only!)
The scents include:
- Jasmin & Bergamote: A feminine jasmine floral scent that's fresh, light, and flirty — everything that makes you think spring.
- Magnolia & Mure: A mix of flower and fruity, magnolia offers a hint of woodsy while blackberry sweetens things up.
- Vanilla & Narcisse: For those craving spice in their life, this vanilla-oriental scent blends notes of bergamot and white flower — with a kick.
- Thé Vert & Bigarade: A unisex scent that contains sparkling citrus notes of bitter orange and calming green tea.
La Collection de Grasse hits stores and online on April 17th for $75 a bottle. Tell us, which scent are you sweet on most?
