In anticipation of the, soon to be released, Pivoine Sublime perfecting skincare line, L’Occitane has re-released the Pivoine Flora EDT ($55.00 CDN/75mL)* in a new, pink rounded bottle with softly engraved petals. I love this packaging so much more with its soft gradient and bright pink box. As for the scent, this must be a sign of the times as I swore I was not a floral gal and have had samples of Pivoine Flora before with no olfactory success. I spritzed this on my wrists the moment I got it and it wore beautifully. The peony (extracted from the south of France) is light, floral and incredibly fresh-smelling which is what pulled me in right away. I am immediately transported to open fields of flowers in France, despite never having been there! I suppose that’s part of the appeal of fragrance – being able to experience another country and culture all in one bottle.
I think mom would love something like this, don’t you? Or get one for yourself and one for mom for Mother’s Day!
