Launching on July 30th is the L’Occitane Roses et Reines collection.
This limited edition collection features ten pieces all scented with rose extract from Provence, France. The Rose 4 Reines range (now called Roses et Reines) was created 10 years ago and is enhanced by a unique rose extract from Haute-Provence, obtained by enfleurage. What the heck is that, you ask? Enfleurage consists of extracting the freshness of the natural essence of flowers as soon as they are harvested. This process is particularly suitable for the rose which is extremely delicate. They have a patent pending for this process.

Pearlescent Body Gel is a great product for when you want a subtle shimmer to your skin. Don’t think glitter, think very subtle shimmer or sheen. It cleans your body and leaves your skin with a fantastic rose scent, but also adds just that hint of something “more” because of the pearly bits inside.
Roll-On Eau de Toilette Intense is a great little roller-ball for your bag. I mean first of all look how pretty the bottle and cap are! It’s small, light and definitely the kind of thing to carry around with you for touch-ups throughout the day. The scent, of course, is of roses and it smells amazing. Have I mentioned rose is one of my top 3 favorite scents ever? Well it is!
The Shower Scrub has gentle exfoliating beads inside, which helps get rid of dead skin and leaves your skin smooth and soft feeling. And this kind of goes without saying at this point – it smells great.
The Hand & Nail Cream is another perfect product for your bag. It includes shea butter and vitamin E, both of which help soften hands and cuticles. This rubs in quickly without a greasy residue and I love it.
Is there anything in this line you want to try out? Do you love a good rose scent as much as I do?
