REVIEW | L’Occitane – Iris blue & iris blanc
Today I have a review for you guys! L’Occitane’s newest scent in the Grasse Collection: Iris Blue & Iris Blanc! Keep reading for a brief description of the product and my personal experience and thoughts.
Have you heard of the Grasse Collection of L’Occitane yet? It’s named after the perfume capital in the southern part of France; Grasse. The scents in the collection are named after flowers and they smell, as expected, very flowery.
IRIS BLUE & IRIS BLANC
Iris Blue & Iris Blanc is the newest scent in the Grasse Collection. It contains flower water extract from the blue Iris Pallida that grows in Grasse and the white Iris Florentina that can be found in the Mediterranean. Like all scents in this collection, it’s an eau de toilette.
I really like the packaging, especially since it has lots of gold detailing, which I obviously love! The slightly lilac shade of the liquid compliments the gold tones. The bottle is pretty big and so far only comes in this one size! It contains 75 ml – 2,5 fl.oz, which is a lot of goodness!
– Ylang ylang
– White musk
As you can see, the top, middle and base notes contain lots of flowers. I would say the top notes are pretty sharp at first (I had to find out the hard way!). Once the middle notes kick in, the scent becomes softer and really pleasant to the nose!
I have to be honest – I really like this scent and I will definitely be using it a lot! It also looks really great in my small (but slowly growing!) perfume collection. I like how it has a lilac shade, because I didn’t have one of those yet, haha! Would I buy it again once I run out? Probably not, since it’s pretty pricey for an eau de toilette and I’m already saving up for other perfumes. By the way, My mom also really liked the scent! I’m happy to share, mom. :)
L’Occitane Iris Blue & Iris Blanc is available at loccitane.com for €56,00 or $78.00 (USD). There’s also matching shower gel, body lotion, soap and 3 kinds of hand cream available.
