That packaging! How pretty, I’m such a magpie for pale pinks with greens…. I think back in the 80’s I had a white, pink and green bedroom… it was one of the first colour combinations I fell in love with and I still feel the same now.
Last year L’Occitane released Pivoine Flora EDP and there is now a new limited edition perfume in the range. Pivoine Delicate. This new collection is inspired by a rare peony flower that is very delicate. The collection includes not only an Eau De Toilette but cosmetics and body products.
I’ve got a few things to share with you today from the collection and I’ll be honest, I love them but at first I wasn’t at all sure I would. I have it in my head for some reason that I don’t like floral fragrances, despite the fact that over the last couple of years I have discovered that’s not strictly true but still I have this misconception about my tastes. So it’s fair to say that with this collection, it was the packaging and cosmetic items that really drew me in.
So lets start with the Eau de Toilette (£33 75ml)
Loving this! It’s so light and whilst it is floral, its fruity too. Only subtle fruit though. Officially this has top notes of citrus fruits and white peach, heart notes of rose, peony and lilly of the valley and base notes of white musk and light woods. I’d go along with that entirely, just to add that it lasts a long time on me but is light and fresh. It’s really gorgeous!
The next Item I was sent is the Hand Cream (£13 75ml).
L’Occitane Hand Cream has become my go to for moisturising my hands, and so it’s lovely to have this to use with the perfume. Love the formula, always beautifully scented, quickly absorbed and very moisturising. There’s nothing more to say, if you’re looking for a great hand cream this is well worth a look.
The final product I have to show you is the Lipstick in Pivoine Delicate (£12.50 for 3.5g)
A delicate soft, lightly shimmering nude. I LOVE this. It’s an absolute beaut of a lippie. I don’t have much to actually say about it, just have a look at it.
Other items in the range are the Fresh Mist (a scented spray with aloe vera to leave you soft!), A Shimmer Poweder which is pink and silver iridescence to add to your body/hair, a Eau de Toilette and Gloss Duo (perfume at one end and lip gloss at the other, three lip glosses and two more lipsticks.
On my wish list is the Fresh Mist and the Shimmering Powder (not that I have any call for such a thing, I don’t care, just give me the pretty) and one of the lippies looks like a stunning coral, although I believe they are all on the sheer side… fine by me if they are all as pretty as Pivoine Delicate.
All in all this is a beautiful collection. Really beautiful and I’m wanting to treat myself to a few more bits which is a always a good sign!
