L'Occitane En Provence Chirstmas Holiday Collection 2013; Noël À Grasse

Hello lovelies! The most magical season of the year is filed with fond recollections of the times past. Honestly, I can't believe Christmas is coming in about 2 months! I'm seriously excited about Christmas celebrations where we can indulge warm baked gingerbread, warm Eggnogs, sweet candy canes and delicious roasted Turkey that makes me go craving about and of course, spending hours with beloved family members by exchanging amusing anecdotes. That's what the Christmas spirit is all about. :)

I was excited because I was invited to L'Occitane Chirstmas Party @ Ploy with media and bloggers which is located at Clearwater, Damansara Heights. (which was just behind my uni) and the place was covered with Christmas decorations with the theme of gold with blue hue. The moment I stepped in, I felt I'm in another timezone and they played some nice Christmas songs that I instantly never felt any cozier with that place, it's Christmas baby! :3 
"Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells~"
Floating balloons everywhere 

For this year, L'Occitane invites you on a journey to rediscover your most sweetest memories with Un Noël À Grasse, two limited edition addictions to the iconic La Collection de Grass line of fragrances - Fluer d'Or & Acacia (for her) & Cèdre & Oranger (for him). The names sounds sophisticated and classy, right? 
La Collection de Grasse pays tribute to the name of the land it is named after. Grasse, a small town that is located in France and Grasse is known throughout as the world's capital perfume. Grasse is the land of perfumes where they gathered ingredients from far and near and produce the best perfumes.

During the session, there's 2 handsome Grasse men suited up in red suit and presented L'Occitane's 2 iconic fragrences and also, Fluer d'Or & Aracia hand cream which smells delicately lovely with soft scent of musky floral which reminds me of jasmine flower. However, I find it too feminine for my type as this perfume is more suitable on mature ladies. Nevertheless, the scent literally reminds me of the cozy moments with loved ones under the fireplace during Christmas :D 

Fluer d'Or & Acacia Shower gel has shimmery particles that looks like gold dust. :D

The two limited edition perfumes Fluer d'Or & Acacia (for her) and Cèdre & Oranger (for him) are created by a renowned perfumer or "nose", Karine Dubreuil who grew up in Grasse. 
By creating this two perfumes, she tell her story of her childhood memories spent in Grasse during the magical season of Christmas.
For Karine Dubreuil, the land of L'Occitane is as familiar to her as the back of her own hand. As a pure Mediterranean women, she shares with L'Occitane the same love for simplicity and nature.

"I remember the melancholy of summer's end, mixed with the excitement of renewal to come. Within the earth sap would begin to rise. In my grandmother's garden, there would be mimosa branches weighed heavy with fluffy flowers, its sweet scent carried by the wind, mingling with aromas of acacia from Mediterranean..." - Karine Dubrueil
