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.
The peony flower has long been heralded as a symbol of beauty, with its dazzling show of colours and aromatic scent. The Rivière family has devoted 160 years to peony breeding, and has helped L’Occitane to develop their Pivoine Flora range to showcase the beauty of this richly scented flower. Every product in the Pivoine Flora collection has been infused with peony extract exclusively developed from Rivière peonies in south western France.
Enriched with shea butter, this silky Pivoine Flora Beauty Milk will glide fluidly across your skin to moisturise and soften it, while the fresh scent of peony lingers delicately behind.
Sumptuous yet subtle, nowhere else in the world will the aura of the peony flower be so richly experienced than through L’Occitane’s Pivoine Flora range.
