For the first time, L’Occitane has travelled to China to reveal the beauty of a rare ingredient: Osmanthus. Surprising and unexpected, the Osmanthus flower blooms during autumn and exudes its scent when most of the other flowers have already wilted. L’OCCITANE en Provence reveals its delicate and unique fragrance: green freshness, velvety apricot effect, creamy woody notes.
Fresh, floral, sweet and fruity. This enchanting fragrance embodies the uniqueness of the Osmanthus scent with its delightfully fruity facets.
450 osmanthus flowers are required to make a 75ml bottle of perfume.
In China, Osmanthus is a traditional ingredient with a history of over 2,500 years.
Osmanthus is unique because it blooms during autumn when most other flowers wither.
Both surprising and unexpected, the Osmanthus flower blooms during autumn and releases its scent at a time when most other flowers have already faded. To produce the scent of our responsibly-sourced yellow Osmanthus flower, branches are shaken to let mature Yellow Osmanthus flowers fall, they are then separated from the leaves with sieves before entering the extraction process to produce a quality that is very well balanced between fruity, floral and soft leathery facets.
The yellow Osmanthus flower is known for its well balanced scent between floral & fruity and it also has a better olfactory quality compared to its other varieties. With rich leathery qualities, it brings comfort and relaxation.
This nourishing body lotion moisturises the skin and leaves it feeling beautifully soft, enveloped in a delicate fragrance: a green freshness, a velvety apricot effect, and creamy woody notes.
