Sneak Peak: L'Occitane Fraiche Cologne and Shower Gel Collection

L'Occitane Australia will be launching the new L'Occitane Cologne Fraiche Collection on 29th August 2012 which includes three delightful and fresh cologne scents inspired by the citrus aromas of Provence: Eau Ravissante (floral scent), Eau Captivante (woody scent) and Eau Universelle (citrusy scent). Each of the three scents are suitable for both men and women, though some people may find Eau Ravissante, Eau Captivante and Eau Universelle are likey to interest women, men and both sexes, respectively. The beautiful pointed stripe embossed on the glass bottle and the name L'Occitane embossed on the side of the Cologne Fraiche and Shower Gel bottles looks so simple, sleek and very sophisticated! 

 L'Occitane - 'Across the land of Provence, people will tell you that 'l'aigo es d'or', meaning 'water is gold'. Our Eau de Cologne collection is inspired by the freshness of the fountains present throughout the region. Each with citrusy notes of Bergamot, our collection of scents includes zesty, floral and stimulating aromas meant for both women and men.'

Eau Ravissante Cologne: Floral aroma from Rose and Freesia Petals with notes of Bergamot, Musk and Amber.
Eau Captivante Cologne: Woody and Lavender aromas with notes of Lime, Bergamot, Mint and Basil.
Eau Universelle Cologne: Citrus aroma with notes of Bergamot, Grapefruit and Geranium.

A cologne (or Eau de Cologne) is a relatively light fragrance which has a concentration of 3-8% essential oils, so the intensity and longevity of the scent is not at all overpowering or stronger than Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum fragrances. Cologne is typically applied liberally to get the most out of the light scent - each scent is available in a generous 300ml splash bottle (which comes with an additional spray nozzle) and a travel friendly 50ml bottle. The large Cologne bottle is really heavy, but that's because it holds 300ml and makes it the largest perfume bottle in my collection. The scents are great to spritz onto the body after a shower or splash some cologne onto the hands and rub onto the neck and behind the ears. Another great way to indulge in these scents is to add two caps full of the cologne into a bath. If you like light scents of perfume, then these colognes would be great for you. 

The L'Occitane Cologne Fraiche Collection includes Cologne Fraiche Splash Bottle ($70/300ml), Cologne Fraiche Travel Size Bottle (A$40/50ml) and Shower Gel (A$28/250ml) in each of the three delightful fresh scents.

Have you tried L'Occitane Cologne or fragrances before?
