L’Occitane’s New Version of Arlesienne Eau de Toilette Review

L’Occitane’s New Version of Arlesienne Eau de Toilette
Your senses are in for another treat with this 2016 version of Arlesienne.


Have you heard that L’Occitane launched a new version of last year’s release of their Arlesienne fragrance?  Being such a fan of this mainly rose dominated bouquet, I wondered how this incantation would measure up.

The Arlesienne Eau de Toilette that I received opens with an energetic start of bergamot citrus against spicier saffron, which gives a sheerer, crisp freshness to those initial notes that soon are challenged by the intriguing, green notes of galbanum and the almond-like notes of hawthorn.

As this fragrance warms further in the heart, the more its true floral-based self emerges with the graceful arrival of its star, namely rose, flaunting those petals like an elegant cape worn over a gown of honeyed and spicy notes of violet leaves and powdery, mysterious alluding notes of iris. Dressed in classic, feminine beauty, Arlesienne is romantic with a mysterious allure that you can’t help deny.
The base has a sensuality that is softly inviting by how magnetic it is with white musk, sandalwood and amber notes that give it such smoothness in its approach.

I fell in love with the original Arlesienne, which was brighter floral. Yet, I also am drawn to the new Arlesienne, which has a unique beauty of its own.  With its slightly crisper notes against sweet floral and velvety ones, you can’t help fall in love a second time.

If you are looking for a new fragrance or searching for beautiful fragrance gifts this holiday shopping season, I suggest visiting your local L’Occitane boutique or their website for the Arlesienne Eau de Toilette ($68) for 2.5 oz. You will be so happy that you stopped!
