L'Occitane Terre de Lumiere

3/17/2017


I think you'll agree when I say that everything about L'Occitane Terre de Lumiere oozes elegance and beauty. Without even knowing the backstory (you can read about it here) the warm, contrasting hues of pale gold and fiery amber look stunning. Pebble-shaped bottle and cap give off an almost natural, earthy feel whilst looking impeccably elegant. The olfactory pyramid is also consisted of beautiful notes but don't be fooled - inside this sophisticated aesthetic lies a true beast!

Terre de Lumiere EDP opens up with bergamot, ambrette and pink pepper. In the heart lies lavender honey and the base is anything but ordinary with tonka bean, bitter almond, acacia and musk. When I first applied it on my skin I was taken aback by the dominant lavender honey note. It's very unique as you can sense both lavender and honey, separately but also as a perfectly harmonious blend. That lavender/honey heart dominates for hours and it gently transitions into the beautiful almond, acacia and tonka. Result is a flawless concoction that'll satisfy even the biggest sweet tooth - without the perfume even stepping into the confectionery/sugary territory. This time, the sweetness is sophisticated. And it even gets better as time progresses, smelling even more alluring that the first spritz!

Beware - this isn't your regular watered down scent. A single application radiates from the skin and I truly must advise not to over-apply, especially if you'll spend your time in confined spaces. Longevity is absolutely fantastic as Terre de Lumiere remains on my skin for over 24h and my clothes smell of it for days. It is an expensive perfume but it definitely provides top perfumery experience. It's obvious that a lot of thought was put into this perfume.

Accompanying Terre de Lumiere products are beautiful - gentle shower gel being my fave! It even tops my previous shimmery L'Occitane fave (Joyeuses Fetes shower gel). The lavender honey scent is so intense, almost intoxicating. Pure decadence is captured within the beautifying body milk whilst the radiating balm for hands and body is such a staple. I really have to sing my praises for Terre de Lumiere and L'Occitane for creating such a beautiful gift to all of their clients. I highly recommend purchasing the perfume as a gift for special occasions - it will not disappoint.

  • Mislim da ćete se složiti sa mnom kada kažem da sve vezano za L'Occitane Terre de Lumiere EDP (50 ml = 129 KM, 90 ml = 177 KM) naprosto odiše elegancijom i ljepotom. Bez i da pročitate riječ o nastanku ovog parfema  (ako vas ipak interesuje, klik ovdje na članak) topli kontrastni tonovi nježno zlatne i vatrene ambre djeluju prekrasno. Bočica oblikovana poput oblutka djeluje veoma prirodo bez da gubi na eleganciji. Mirisna kompozicija ovog parfema je također veoma lijepa no, nemojte da vas obmane jer unutar ove lijepe bočice se nalazi prava zvijer!
  • Terre de Lumiere se "otvara" notama bergamota, ambrete i ružičastog bibera. Samo srce parfema sačinjava med od lavande a baza je posebna jer miriše po mahunama tonke, gorkim bademima, acacia cvijetu i mošusu. Kada sam prvi put nanijela ovaj parfem na kožu, ostavio je tako jak dojam na mene i nije bilo sumnje da je dominantna nota meda od lavande. Interesantno je kako istovremeno možete razlikovati med i lavandu a opet se savršeno stapaju međusobno, baš kao da se prelijevaju jedno u drugo. Ova harmonična kombinacija se kasnije, tokom sati nošenja nježno miješa sa mirisom badema, žute acacije i tonke. Vjerujem da bi ova kombinacija mirisa zadovoljila potrebe najzahtjevnijih ljubitelja slatka a da nikada parfem ne postane komercijalno šećerna vodica. Ovog puta, slatkoća je sofisticirana. Što je najbolje, parfem je sve bolji i bolji što ga duže nosite!
  • Morate znati da ovo nije još jedan u nizu komercijalnih mirisa. Ovo je parfem sa velikim "P" i samo jedna kap doslovno isijava sa kože. Preporučujem da budete umjereni sa nanošenjem, pogotovo ako ćete vrijeme provesti u zatvorenom prostoru. Trajnost je apsolutno fantastična jer Terre de Lumiere na mojoj koži miriše i preko 24h a na odjeći se zadržava danima. Ovo jeste skup parfem koji itekako pripada u društvu odabranih jer svojim performansama impresionira. Jasno je da je u ovaj parfem uloženo mnogo truda.
  • Proizvodi koji prate parfem su vrijedni pažnje - pogotovo svjetlucavi gel za tuširanje! Uspio me dojmiti više i od prethodnog favorita (Joyeuses Fetes shower gel). Miris meda od lavande je veoma intenzivan, gotovo da opija. Definicija dekadentnog užitka je i luksuzno mlijeko za tijelo dok je balzam za ruke i tijelo rijetko praktičan a istovremeno luksuzan proizvod. Zaista ne mogu škrtariti na pohvalama kada je u pitanju Terre de Lumiere. L'Occitane je istinski razmazio svoje korisnice ovim novitetom. Srčano preporučujem da za posebne prilike poklonite Terre de Lumiere EDP - garantovano neće razočarati.

    1. It's definitely one of those that will last and stand the test of time.
      I like that it's not yet another trendy gourmand as we're already on a brink of something new in perfumery and honey notes (when done right) definitely have that everlasting appeal
