|L’Occitane’s Vitoria Regia Day Flower Body Lotion|
L’Occitane en Provence heats up your summer with the launch of their new Au Brésil Collection that just hit stores May 2014. Since most of us won’t be traveling to the Amazon any time soon, Olivier Baussan has done it for us and recreated three exquisite lines: Vitória Régia Day Flower, Vitória Régia Night Flower, and Jenipapo that capture the breathtaking exotic splendor of that country through this unique fragrance, sun care, and body products collection, which are ideally suited for summer!
Vitória Régia is a floral-aquatic fragrance that floats with leisurely grace and centers around an Amazonian water lily, which only blooms at night, releasing a perfume so sweet that other flowers would be jealous by such magnificence–and then in a few days it dies. This precious Victoria Amazonica flower and its blooming cycle is the inspiration behind Vitória Régia Day Flower and the Vitória Régia Night Flower lines.
The Vitória Régia Day Flower Body Lotion that I received is delightfully soft, but fresh as this silky scented emulsion washes over you with its tropical floral magic that also includes the gardenia, the lily of the valley, and Victoria Amazonica in this very feminine fragrance. The fluid movement of those flowers against the water is soothing and gentile as it develops and lingers with heliotrope, musk, and haunting amber.

Just as enticing and softly fresh is Vitória Régia Night Flower Eau de Cologne that will slowly seduce with the magnetic hold this fragrance can exert. The notes of lime against water hyacinth and Victoria Amazonica lift the freshness of those flowers before plunging you into happy oblivion once the peony emerges. This fragrance is so romantic and sensual with how those notes tease each other, more so when the musk and sandalwood surface in the base.
Jenipapo is bursting with brightness and energy, almost like Baussan brought back the huge sun itself and found a way to extract it along with that fruit from this Brazilian tree for this line of fragrance, sun care and body products.
Let me fill you in on the fruity-floral fragrance of Jenipapo Oil Roll-On because there is nothing like it because it is almost powered up with how that green and fruity-floral smelling fruit charge up this scent. Notes of watermelon, pino colada and citrus ground it and keep that intense heat from flaming out of control.
The Au Brésil Collection is not to be missed. Whatever form from eau de cologne, body lotion, shower gel, soap, to sun care products that you prefer, indulge your spirit and loose yourself in that wild Amazon as I have done because it is sensational place to be for the summer!
