L’Occitane Rose Originelle Shower Gel, Body Lotion, EDT – Review

 

Hi everyone! Now that we’ve said goodbye to the winters, I’m bringing back fresh spring florals into my bath and body routine. L’Occitane recently launched their Rose Originelle collection which consists of a shower gel, a body lotion, a hand cream and an EDT. Today I will be reviewing a few of the products from this lovely floral collection. I love rose scents in my beauty products and L’Occitane always does fragrances very well so I was looking forward to trying this out.

L’Occitane Rose Originelle Shower Gel (Rs 1510, 250 ml)

The shower gel comes in a beautiful packaging. The bottle, with its golden cap and honey colored shower gel, looks decadent and charming. The gel itself has a slightly runny consistency, lathers well without foaming too much and doesn’t strip the skin dry. I love the rose scent which is delicately balanced with a soft fruity note, making this a feminine and refreshing shower wash. The scent is not overpowering and doesn’t linger much after rinsing. If you like roses or florals in general, you would definitely like this!

This range contains extracts from three varieties of roses –

  • Rose absolute from Turkey
  • Rose from Grasse (Rosa Centifolia Extract)
  • Rose centifolia absolute from Grasse

Its also free from the following – BHA, BHT, formol or formaldehyde, parabens, phenoxyethanol, phtalates, silicone & triclosan.

L’Occitane Rose Originelle Body Veil (Rs 2090, 250 ml)

The body veil/lotion from this collection has the same fragrance as the shower gel – a delicate rose scent with a hint of fruity freshness. The packaging is similar, clear bottle with a golden cap. The pale pink colored body lotion is not too thick in consistency and not too heavily fragranced. Its moisturizes nicely enough (not well enough for very dry skin though) and the scent lingers for an hour or so after application. Since I don’t have very dry skin on the body, this works fine enough for me and I love the delicate, velvety rose scent of this lotion. I only wish the scent stayed on the skin for a longer time.

This body veil contains extracts from the following –

  • Rose absolute from Turkey
  • Rose from Grasse (Rosa Centifolia Extract)
  • Floral water of rose
Its also free from the following – BHA, BHT, EDTA, formol or formaldehyde, mineral oil (oil-free), parabens, phtalates, silicone, synthetic colorants & triclosan.

L’Occitane Rose Originelle Eau de Toilette (Rs 3590)

The star of this range is the beautiful fragrance which comes in a charming glass bottle. The packaging has a quaint and rustic quality to it, just like the shower gel and body veil. This is a delicate fragrance, ideal for ladies who like their perfumes on the lighter side. The rose is the centre piece of this scent but it is balanced by fruity notes of bergamot and blackcurrant. At its base, it has notes of violet musk, magnolia and sandalwood. The fruity notes are very subtle and dissipate quickly, leaving behind a warm rose base. To my nose, the most dominant and detectable notes are the rose, the magnolia and the violet musk. Its definitely a very floral scent though not overpoweringly rosy, so even those who aren’t die hard rose fans can give this a try! I do like this very much but I would have preferred a more dominant fruity/fresh note. Being a delicate scent, this needs reapplication after 4 hours or so.

The Rose Originelle collection is now available across L’Occitane stores in India.

  1. I really love the floral fragrance specially in summer season. But I m totally confused to choose shower gel or body lotion. Hey dear plz suggest me naa …..???
    I have dry skin

  2. I love scented shower gels and rose scent in particular, so I might have to check out this line. I have used L’Occitane products before, but I don’t think I have tried anything scented.

  3. The body veil looks and sounds so enchanting! I only have this one thing with brands, why don’t they infuse some sun protection factor in their amazing products? Layering sunscreen over them so much takes away the fun of the fragrance… Nevertheless, great pics Ankita!
