L’Occitane is one of the shops that Eccentric English Boyfriend refuses to accompany me into. Apparently the smell gives him a headache. And yes, to enter a L’Occitane shop is to experience olfactory overload.
I’ll quite happily leave EEB outside the store though because I do rather like L’Occitane. I had a hand/body lotion of theirs once which I absolutely loved both for its formula and its scent, plus they have gorgeous packaging.
L’Occitane’s range of gift sets contains something for most tastes, including those perennial favourite scents lavender and rose (both of which I don’t like so please don’t buy them for me!):
Relaxing Lavender Box ($90.00), contains 500ml Lavender Foaming Bath, 100g Lavender Candle and 75g Lavender Soap:
Rose Shower & Body Duo ($72.00), contains 250ml 4 Reines Rose Shower Gel and 250ml 4 Reines Rose Body Lotion:
Delice des Fruits Perfumed Soap ($8.00):
Delice des Fruits Bath Ball ($6.50):
Shaving Essential Gift Set ($79.00), contains 150ml Cade Shaving Cream and 75ml Cade After Shave Balm:
Verdon Essentials ($26.00), contains 50ml Verdon Face Wash, 50ml Verdon Shower Gel and 100gm Verdon Soap (Verdon is described as a blend of peppermint, citrus and aquatic notes and while it may be aimed at the guys it sounds like exactly the sort of scent I would love, so feel free to buy this for me!):
And of course you can’t go too wrong with a
nicely presented set of body care products.
Shea Butter Gift Set($123.00), contains 200ml Ultra Rich Body Cream, 150ml Shea Butter Hand Cream and 250g Extra Gentle Milk Soap.
Mini Hand & Foot Kit ($32.00), contains 30ml Shea Butter Hand Cream and 30ml Shea Butter Foot Cream:
So how goes the Christmas shopping pretties? Panicking yet? I know I am!
There’s a whole lot of consumer opportunities out there at the mo. First, the Estee Lauder Gift Me gift with purchase. The gift includes a nice handbag and a bunch of great treats.
Then there’s the mad $5 (US) teeshirts at threadless. With the kiwi dollar still that’s an amzing deal. Shipping costs a bit shared across a number of tees or people it’s peanuts. I’ve bought a bunch of tees fromthreadless in the past and they never disappoint. Hurry because the sale ends o the 8th June.
And of course Aussie brands Cue and Veronica Maine and Witchery each have huge sales at the mo. Each have a good number 50% off racks.
And luxury brand l’occitane have a big sale. You can purchase online or instore.
