With every new L'Occitane range, comes a story behind the flower that's produced the inspiration for the range. This flower is the peony flower that grows in 'Mr Riviere's nursery', a soft pink pastel flower, that has been the inspiration for the packaging, and what beautiful packaging it is! The whole range is scented with the peony flower, a soft floral scent with a 'powdery' trail (but it's not an 'old person' scent, well I wouldn't say it is :)). It's the most gorgeous sweet soft floral scent, just my cup of tea. However, if your not into sweet floral fragrances, it certainly will not be your thing.
There is something a little different about this L'Occitane range. It also contains make-up! L'Occitane have brought out Pivoine Delicate lipsticks, lip glosses and balms, all scented with the peony flower.
The products I have from this range are the following:
- Hand Cream - Seriously, when I've used this I just sit there smelling my hands non-stop. Maybe I won't use this out in public. It's not as moisturising as L'Occitanes 20% shea butter creams, however, it's not greasy at all and absorbs really quickly. It's perfect for a pick me up when your hands aren't extremely dry.
- Shimmering Powder - I had a little OMG moment when I received this, just look at that packaging. The little pump bottle is very vintage, and very gorgeous, it looks perfect sat with all my make-up. I've always wanted a bottle like this, and L'Occitane have brought one into my life. The shimmer powder also smells gorgeous and comes out in little puffs, which is great. I expected it all to come out in one big gust and cover me all over, but it works really well. I use this on my collar bone for a scent and shimmer.
- Lipstick - A lipstick thats scented? I wasn't too sure, and I'm still not too sure. The scent doesn't really last, and the lipstick isn't really a lipstick. I couldn't really get any colour from it at all, just a little shimmer almost like a lip balm. It does last a long time though, it's a long lasting lip balm to be honest.
Overall, I can't stop raving on about the gorgeous scent and fabulous packaging the Pivoine Delicate collection brings. However, I wasn't impressed with the lipstick. I'm tempted to buy the Eau De Toilette as I seem to have a little L'Occitane perfume collection going on, they have so many wonderful scents.
Available in L'Occitane stores and online 'here'.
What's your thoughts on this new collection from L'Occitane? Will you be buying or have brought any?
Disclosure: These are PR samples, but I love L'Occitane products regardless.
