L'Occitane Grasse Néroli & Orchidée Beauty Explosion

Warning: be prepared to witness an unbearable amount of gorgeousness! L'Occitane Grasse Néroli & Orchidée is literally a beauty explosion as it features one of the most beautiful body care and perfume offerings – something we've all been accustomed to see from L'Occitane. You could've read all about the new white floral range in one of the previous posts (here) and now after I've been testing these beauties out, be prepared for some heavy waxing lyrical from yours truly. The Grasse Néroli & Orchidée range features amazing bath & body products (body milk, soap, shower gel etc.) along with the center piece – the fragrance + a scented candle. Grasse ranges always have an interesting product squished with the rest and this heady summer one is no exception. But first, let's talk shower gel. L'Occitane Grasse Néroli & Orchidée perfumed shower gel – what to say? You're looking at a phenomenal shower gel for summer. This is as good as a shower gel gets. It's suds and makes a nice foam, thoroughly cleanses the skin without stripping it. It leaves a slight slippy feel after rinsing but there's no aftermath – just clean and soft skin. The best bit? Skin smells divine for an entire day after neroli and orchid without any additional body moisturizers. If the shower gel foam gets in your hair's ends they will smell of it as well. Beautiful stuff.

Upozorenje: pripremite se da budete obasuti nepodnosljivom ljepotom! L'Occitane Grasse Néroli & Orchidée je doslovno eksplozija ljepote, utjelovljena u krasnom mirisu i najsarmantnijim proizvodima za njegu tijela – nesto na sto nas je L'Occitane navikao i razmazio. Mogle ste citati o ovoj novoj kolekciji u najavnom postu (ovdje) te nakon sto sam isprobala ove krasne stvarcice, osjecam se spremnom da vam zapisem poeticnu rijec-dvije. Grasse Néroli & Orchidée linija sadrzi vec spomenute proizvode za njegu koze tijela (mlijeko za tijelo, sapun, tusiralicu..itd.) uz bok atrakciji koja je EDT + mirisna svijeca koju vrebam. Grasse kolekcije uvijek imaju neki poseban proizvod pa ni ova kolekcija nije izuzetak. No, prvo spomenimo tusiralicu. L'Occitane Grasse Néroli & Orchidée parfimirani gel za tusiranje (175ml/23KM) – sta reci, sta napisati? Za pocetak, gledate u fenomenalnu ljetnu tusiralicu. Gel za tusiranje doveden do ideala, najbolje sto jedan proizvod ove vrste moze ponuditi. Ugodno iskustvo rituala ciscenja, praceno njeznom pjenom koja temeljito cisti bez uklanjanja zastitnog sloja koze. Dok sam jos pod tusem, osjetim da je koza nakon ispiranja skliska no nakon sto je posusim – osjetim samo cistocu. Najbolji dio? Kozu ostavlja mirisnom na neroli i orhideju cijeli dan, cak bez pomoci dodatnih mazalica. Ukoliko vam malo pjene ove tusiralice dotakne kosu, i ona ce biti ukrasena bijelim cvijecem. Divno.



L'Occitane Grasse Néroli & Orchidée Fragrance Beautifying Cream is a wondrous invention. Packaged in a heavy, luxe glass jar of white coloring that offsets the black font and the black lid – this decadent jar houses a truly interesting product. Looking like smooth, creamy whipped cream and smelling like the most expensive cream ever – there is more to this cream than meets the eye. Fragrance Beautifying Cream is especially made to be layered underneath all or any L'Occitane perfumes from the Grasse collection. It contains universal floral notes which can be found as a base of any Grasse perfume thus working as a perfume enhancer. So, no matter if you're using Néroli & Orchidée, Jasmine & Bergamot, Magnolia & Mure, Vanille & Narcisse, Ambre & Santal or any other Grasse fragrance – they all can be layered over it. I've been blown away when I've personally experienced how much potency it provides to these EDT's. If a regular Grasse EDT lasts approx 5h on your skin and you're very fond of the scent but you'd wish for it to last longer – this is something that you need in your life. You apply this light cream of fresh and smooth texture where you'd normally apply body moisturizer but pay special attention to neck and chest. I also apply it on my wrists and collar bone – everywhere I apply perfume. You can release 1-2 spritzes in the air and walk through that scented cloud or apply the Grasse scent directly on your skin and over the beautifying cream. Instantly, literally within a second or two you get an enormous aura and sillage from a regular EDT. It's amazing! It turns any EDT into a very decent EDP on my skin. I've tried this with both Néroli & Orchidée and Fleur d'Or & Acacia – it transforms both fragrances. Nothing short of a miracle and definitely not a gimmick – this is an amazing product and I'm looking forward to purchasing Grasse Ambre & Santal EDT come autumn and to layer it with this magical cream. It also smells very fresh and expensive on its own. My husband loves that clean skin effect it leaves and it moisturizers beautifully. I must say that it's quite rare to find such an all-round amazing product.

L'Occitane Grasse Néroli & Orchidée Fragrance Beautifying Cream (125g/57KM) je cudesan izum. Upakovana u tesku, luksuznu staklenu teglicu bijele boje kojoj kontrast cine slova i poklopac crne boje – ova dekadentna staklenka krije izuzetno interesantan proizvod. Izgleda poput glatkog, kremastog vrhnja i mirise na skupocjenu kremu – ipak sadrzi nesto i vise od ovoga sto primjecujemo na prvi pogled. Fragrance Beautifying Cream je posebno osmisljena da bude koristena u zajednistvu sa svim, zaista bilo kojim parfemom iz L'Occitane Grasse kolekcije. Sadrzi univerzalne cvijetne note koje cine bazu svakog Grasse mirisa i djeluje kao ‘booster’ svakom tom mirisu tj.intenzivira ih. Bez obzira da li koristite neroli i orhideju, jasmin i bergamot, magnoliju i kupinu, vaniliju i narcis, ambru ili bilo koji drugi Grasse parfem – ova krema ce savrseno funkcionisati na njihovom dodatnom poboljsanju. Zaista sam bila sokirana koliko ova krema utice na ove mirise, intenzivirajuci ih barem tri puta. Ukoliko Grasse toaletna voda ima prosjecno trajanje od cca 5h a zeljeli bi da traje jos duze i stvarno vam se dopada miris – ova krema je nesto sto vam je potrebno u zivotu. Nanosim je kao i svaku hidratantnu kremu za tijelo no obracam posebnu paznju na vrat, prsa no takodjer je nanosim i na rucni zglob te kljucnu kost – u sustini, na sva mjesta gdje nanosim parfem. Mozete u zrak prsnuti 1-2 sprica i proci kroz mirisni oblak ili nanijeti parfem direktno na kozu i preko kreme. Bukvalno za 1-2- sekunde osjetim ogroman sillage i auru koju inace ne mogu dobiti od toaletne vode. Ova krema pretvara EDT u sasvim pristojan EDP na mojoj kozi. Isprobala sam djelovanje ove cudesne kreme sa Néroli & Orchidée ali i Fleur d'Or & Acacia mirisima – ona transformise oba parfema. Nevjerovatno! Nista manje od cudesnog djelovanja i nesto sto definitivno nije trik – zbog ove kreme se jako radujem kupovini Grasse Ambre & Santal mirisa na jesen kako bih ga kombinovala sa ovom kremom. A krema ako nije u kombinaciji sa Grasse mirisom, sama po sebi mirise jako svjeze i luksuzno. Muz-puz voli miris ciste, putene koze koji ostavlja a takodjer je hidratacija odlicna. Moram priznati kako je rijetkost pronaci ovako potpun proizvod.



Finally, we have the  L'Occitane Grasse Néroli & Orchidée EDT. I was worried if I'll even detect neroli next to orchid as orchids are usually very strong in fragrances. I was extremely happy to notice how heady the neroli is but still different enough to set it apart from other neroli offerings we have. It does have something very French, very romantic that makes you envision the South of France. It has a sweetness that I'm very fond of, that thread most white flowers share but it's not too prominent. Peach and orange make it more tame, more wearable for everyday but it's rather suitable for a summer night out. That's the thing about this fragrance – it's undeniably intended to be mixed with the warm summer air. It really is the ideal fragrance for holidays as it's a mix of that white sweetness neroli has but there's a softnesss the peach brings to the table whilst the bittersweet orange smell balances things to keep it grown-up. This isn't your typical girly fruity-floral scent. Not overly serious or cloying but not teen either – it sits somewhere in the middle of things. It has good longevity, approx 5h for an EDT but that Fragrance Beautifying Cream makes this stay all day on my skin. I don't own the full size bottle which is gorgeous with the sparkly gold ornament wrapped around its ‘neck’ but I must say that these 7,5ml minis are excellent for your handbag. The set featuring three minis of your liking is amazing and I may pick it up.

Napokon, dolazimo do L'Occitane Grasse Néroli & Orchidée EDT (75ml/109KM+posebne ponude). Bojala sam se da li ce orhideja biti dominantna u ovoj parfemslkoj kompoziciji posto je inace intenzivan parfemski sastojak. Na moje veliko zadovoljstvo, otkrila sam kako je neroli ustvari dominantan no posjeduje nesto ‘svoje’ sto ga cini drugacijim od ostalih parfemskih izdanja. Kada pomirisete ovaj EDT, osjetite nesto ‘francusko’, nesto jako romanticno a vizija juga Francuske je neizbjezan prizor u masti. Posjeduje slatkocu koja mi se jako dopada, onu posebnu ‘nit’ koju dijeli bijelo cvijece no nije isuvise izrazajna u ovom mirisu. Breskva i narandza su tu da ukrote intenzitet bijelog cvijeca te da miris ucine nosivim za svaki dan no prigodan bi bilo i za nocni ljetni izlazak. To je ono sto je interesantno glede ovog mirisa – nema sumnje da je stvoren kako bi se pomijesao sa toplim ljetnim zrakom. Zaista je idealan miris za ovo godisnje doba zahvaljujuci slatkoj noti koju donosi neroli no tu je i mekoca breskve dok gorko-slatka narandza balansira kompoziciju i cini je ‘odraslom’. Ovdje se ne radi o tipicnom cvijetno-vocnom mirisu za mladju populaciju. Nije isuvise ozbiljan no nije niti za tinejdzerski duh – lezi u zlatnoj sredini. Dobre je trajnosti za EDT, cca 5h no ako se nanese preko Fragrance Beautifying Cream o kojoj sam ranije pisala, osjetiti cete ga cijeli dan na svojoj kozi. Ne posjedujem veliku bocicu od 75ml koja je prekrasna i ima zlatnu nit/ukras, omotan tik ispod rasprsivaca. No, vrlo je bitno reci kako je moje mini pakovanje EDT-a od 7,5ml savrseno za torbicu. Vidjela sam da L'Occitane ima u ponudi set od tri mini EDT mirisa po nasoj zelji za 33KM (mislim da ta cijena ide uz kupovinu od 45KM) i vrlo moguce da cu tu ponudu da iskoristim. Sta reci, ‘padam’ na minijature.
