“The daughters of the Count of Forcalquier were as beautiful as the roses they cherished – the Grasse rose, the Bulgarian rose, the Moroccan rose and the Turkish rose. Each one of these daughters married a king, and so it was that Marguerite, Eléonore, Sancie and Béatrix became the four Queens of Forcalquier. Their favorite roses fragrances inspired the Rose collection, with subtle and complementary scents, for every woman.”

What woman doesn’t love roses? I don’t know any. The L’Occitane Limited Edition Rose et Reines collection features a blend of all four rose varieties mentioned above and a unique extraction method from L’Occitane that captures the natural freshness and aquatic notes by precious absorption of rose extract from Provence, France. The freshest of rose petals are steeped in oil, allowing it to become saturated with the natural fragrance of the rose, resulting in a fruitier scent.

The composition opens with a luminous blend of bergamot and currant leaves, the intense heart is composed of  the four roses (rose of Grasse, Bulgarian rose, Turkish rose and Moroccan rose). This combination is then enriched with the sweet zest of raspberry and blackberry, resting on a base enriched with white cedar, heliotrope and musk. The edition of musk and white cedar at the base prevent the scent from being too powdery or smelling like your Great Grandma Gertrude. The fragrance is signed by perfumer Karine Dubreuil. Rose lovers will adore this! My scent twin Pink Sith will go gaga for it I’m sure.

  • Rose et Reines Extra-Gentle Soap ($8)

I had the opportunity to try the shower scrub, hand and nail cream and the cute Roll-On Eau de Toilette Instense.

Rose et Reines Intense Eau de Toilette Roll-On ($22)   is perfect for your bag and/or touch-ups during the day, to keep in your gym bag, desk drawer, etc. The packaging is pretty and delicate,  the glass tube even has an ornate gold cap!  The scent is fresh and velvety.

Rose et Reines Bath and Shower Gel ($20)  enriched with rosehip seed extracts, this has gentle exfoliating beads which helps get rid of dead skin and leaves your skin smooth and soft feeling. Your whole bathroom will smell like a Queen lives there.

Rose et Reines Hand and Nail Cream ($12 & 22)  comes in a full-size as well as a travel size. Enriched with shea butter and vitamin E, this light cream helps nourish, soften and protect the hands while helping to strengthen the nails. This rubs in nicely without any  greasy feel.
