L’Occitane Verbena Eau de Toilette + a Giveaway!

Verbena is both a flower and an herb. Quite frequently I’m drawn to scents with verbena in them, but I’ve never really known what it is. “Verbena is cherished for soothing properties, and yet exudes a zesty citrus scent. Its paradoxical nature makes it wonderful as a fragrance, and well-suited to skin and hair care uses.”

Verbena Eau de Toilette by L’Occitane is made with Mediterranean verbena mingled with a rosy base of geranium and lemon tree, I also detect a grassy undertone making it smell all the more summery to me. The scent says quintessential summer; light, fresh, clean and outdoorsy. I’ve kept this in the refrigerator this summer for a refreshing blast on hot days.

Can you just imagine summer in Provence when baskets are piled high with freshly harvested green verbena leaves? The scent must be heavenly!

The spray bottle is heavy glass with a verbena leaf embossed on the front. L’Occitane always has the most beautiful and classy packaging!

The collection also includes the fragrances Summer Verbena and Mint Verbena as well as well body and hair care.
