So many stories, strangely, begin with a man, his truck, and a handful of homemade products.
Almost 40 years ago, in the Provence region of southern France, a young Olivier Baussan began distilling rosemary and lavender essential oil to sell at the local markets. Shortly after, he began producing vegetable-based soaps at an abandoned soap factory in the nearby village of Manosque. It was there, against a sundrenched backdrop of endless lavender fields, that L’Occitane came to be.
Today, L’Occitane continues to draw inspiration from the natural world, to create bath and body products with fragrant properties like no other. Ingredients are ethically sourced from all over the world, while the brand’s entire production remains solely in Manosque.
L’Occitane’s Arlésienne collection is inspired by the elegant and gracious woman of Arles, in the south of France. The essence of this elusive and mysterious woman is embodied in this feminine bouquet of three flowers – sweet violet, saffron and rose which leaves behind an enchanting trail wherever she wanders.
This lightly foaming Arlésienne Shower Cream is a divine way to pamper yourself without having to visit a day spa. It contains rose extract from Grasse, the world’s fragrance capital, which is reinforced by sweet violet and saffron from Provence. The shower cream will gently cleanse the body and leave the skin feeling supple and revitalised.
