L'Occitane Labdanum de Seville, Mimosa de l'Esterel (2009) {New Perfumes}

labdanum-occitane2.jpgL'Occitane en Provence will release two new perfumes this fall in their newly baptized collection Voyage en Méditerranée, originally called Notre Flore when it was launched in 2007. The packaging has also changed and become less ornate, with a simpler cap. Each fragrance in the series centers on a key raw material typically found in the Mediterranean region.

Labdanum de Séville centers on cistus labdanum, reportedly from Andalusia, a resinous plant which is used to yield a sweet vegetal amber-y substance. The scent is labeled as an unisex fragrance described as being warm and enveloping.

Notes are: citruses, spices; labdanum; benzoin, vanilla....


Mimosa de l'Estérel is a composition centering on the winterly mimosa flowers that cover the slopes of the Estérel hills near the city of Grasse in the south of France. The delicate powdery and fresh little balls' scents are a highlight of the winter festivals in the region and it is always difficult to capture its subtle perfume.

Notes are: violet leaves; mimosa; almond accord.

Each perfume will be housed in a 75 ml flacon.
