L'Occitane Cherry Princess Collection

 The newest addition to L'Occitane is the Cherry Princess (in French it is termed Cerisier Princesse)  limited edition collection. The new cherry collection comes in at perfect timing for Mother's Day! The pretty floral red and pink design combined with the fruity and floral scents of the products in the collection will surely put a smile on Mum's face. 

The Cherry Princess Collection was inspired by French Princess Hortense de Beauharnais, (the daughter of Empress Josephine) who had a porcelain complexion, blue eyes and long golden hair, and would often blush when she received a compliment. Her natural beauty reflects that of a graceful cherry tree sitting on top of a hill in Provence with delicate small pure white petals and sweet lush vibrant fruits.

L'Occitane- 'A floral and fruity fragrance that blends the juicy scents of cherries with a delicate floral softness'. 

L'Occitane Cherry Princess Collection
  L'Occitane Cherry Princess collection features Cherry Princess EDT (50ml A$52), Silky Body Gel (250mL A$35), Pearlescent Shower Cream (250mL A$28), Solid Perfume (10g A$16) and of course the all-time popular Hand Cream (30mL A$12)!! The hand creams are my favourite as they are enriched with nourishing Shea Butter which melts onto the skin leaving them feeling all soft, supple, nourished and nicely scented!

I have here two products from the Cherry Princess Collection- Cherry Princess EDT and Silky Body Gel. The packaging is just oh so feminine and beautiful with cherry blossoms embossed on the glass EDT perfume and durable plastic bottle of the Silky Body Gel. The cherry blossoms embossed on the bottles really do add that touch of elegance. I currently have the two products sitting on my dresser table and they do stand out amongst the rest!

L'Occitane Cheery Princess EDT
L'Occitane Cherry Princess EDT is a lovely, soft and subtle fruity cherry and floral scent which has attracted my senses as I have a strong likely for floral scents. The top notes of the perfume are cherry extract, lemon and grapefruit and after a while I noticed a subtle lingering floral blossom aroma. The zesty fruit extracts add a hint of sweetness, however, the floral component still dominates. I must put emphasis that the scent is very delicate and not as near overpowering. I'm not a huge fan of strong EDT/EDP scents, so Cherry Princess EDT definitely suits my style.

L'Occitane Cherry Princess Silky Body Gel
L'Occitane Silky Body Gel is a luxury to use as the scent of Cherry Princess is really delightful. The Cherry Princess scent again is subtle and applying Silky Body Gel onto my skin makes the scent last longer. Not only is the scent just divine, but Silky Body Gel keeps my skin hydrated against the harsh elements during this Autumn season. My skin feels matte after a few seconds and very smooth and soft to touch. The texture is not thick as I thought it would be as most body lotions I have used tend to be a little thick and icky. Silky Body Gel is lightweight and has a nice thin consistency to easily apply onto the skin.

The collection is limited edition, so be sure to check out the collection before they become sold out!
