The Essence of Provence: L’Occitane

L’Occitane is one of my favorite brands. I like the fact that they keep the use of parabens and chemical preservatives to a minimum in all their products, and that they use mostly A.O.C. ingredients and help sustain communities where these ingredients are harvested from. Most of all, I love their Provencal packaging and scents: from olive oil, lavender to honey and lemon, L’Occitane captures the essence and richness of Southern France – Provence – and has a legion of fans worldwide.


What I enjoy most at this time of the year is the Christmas gift sets from major cosmetics and skin care brands. Here is where L’Occitane shines – its unique, colorful and Provencal packaging truly stands out and makes the gift boxes a nice keepsake even long after you use up the products inside.

This year, L’Occitane has more than 68(!) gift sets available for Christmas. I don’t think there is another brand that has this many gift selections! They provide complimentary gift wrapping too. And for once, it is also available in Canada!
