L'Occitane Collection Joyeuses Fêtes & Bonne Mère Update


I've treated myself with a little bon-bon from the Aromachologie range recently but that treat will have to wait a few days to be featured. This time I've compiled a little review bundle of some of the newest L'Occitane releases. Let us start with the Bonne Mère collection and their little addition. I've tried at least a few items from every L'Occitane range as I love the brand so much but, somehow, the Bonne Mère range has eluded me. Not because I don't find it appealing – quite the contrary, I'm really drawn in the simplicity and the nurturing vibe. I've finally purchased my first Bonne Mère item – the new Bonne Mère Almond Soap (100g). My favorite range from L'Occitane must be the Almond range. I'm crazy in love with the Almond Shower Oil, Almond Milk Concentrate, Almond Supple Skin Oil and even the Almond Hand Cream. Of course I also had to try the soap version. It's such a beautifully made soap, the design elevates such an ordinary product and makes it visually enticing. Pair that with a mouthwatering fresh almond scent, a creamy, non-drying formulation and a soft, luxurious foam – you get a perfect present! Whether you treat yourself like I have done, your close ones or even those you don't know well – you simply cannot fault it. This soap contains sweet almond oil, palm oil (certified sustainable development) and is plant-based. I especially felt impressed by the Bonne Mère soap trio gift set selection. I also have my eye on the new Bonne Mère shower gels – lemon, honey, peach, olive are all lovely but I sniffed the rosemary one and woo-hoo! That one shall be mine!


Pocastila sam se bomboncitom iz Aromakologija kolekcije prilikom otvaranja nove L'Occitane radnje u Sarajevo City Centru no to cascenje ce da saceka jos koji dan dok se ne pojavi na blogu. Jos nesto cime sam se pocastila tom prilikom me apsolutno odusevilo tako da sam skrckala post u kojem vam tipkam o par L'Occitane noviteta. Zapocnimo sa Bonne Mère kolekcijom tj. mini dodatkom toj kolekciji. Posto sam strastvena ljubiteljica L'Occitane-a kao brenda, vremenom sam isprobala barem par proizvoda iz svake linije. Ipak, Bonne Mère mi je misteriozno utekla. Ne zbog toga sto me ideja iza ove kolekcije ne privlaci – cak suprotno, smatram je izuzetno lijepom, njeznom i jednostavnom uz jedan umirujuci osjecaj koji prati proizvode. Napokon sam kupila svoj prvi Bonne Mère proizvod a vjerujem da nece biti posljednji. Radi se Bonne Mère Badem sapunu 100g (6KM). Od svih linija, omiljena mi je L'Occitane Badem kolekcija. Najbolji proizvodi jesu Badem Ulje za tusiranje, Badem Mlijecni koncentrat, Badem Ulje za podatnu kozu – pa cak me pridobila i Badem krema za ruke. Naravno da cu isprobati i Badem sapun. On tako lijepo izgleda i imate osjecaj da prekrasni dizajn podize jedan bazican proizvod poput sapuna na nove visine te ga cini cak pozeljnim. Dodajte na to gurmansko-svjezi miris badema, kremastu i neisusujucu formulaciju te mekanu i luksuznu pjenu – upravo ste smuckali savrsen poklon! Bilo da sa ovom sarmantnom sitnicom pocastite sebe, voljene ili cak osobe koje ne poznajete tako dobro – niko nece ostati razocaran. Sapun sadrzi ulje slatkog badema, ulje palme (dobijeno iz certificiranog i odrzivog razvoja) te je baziran na biljnim sastojcima. Kada sam bila u novoj L'Occitane radnji, posebno su me dojmili poklon setovi od tri Bonne Mère sapuna. Takodjer na oku drzim i nove Bonne Mère gelove za tusiranje – limun, med, breskva, maslina su krasni no pomirisala sam tusiralicu sa ruzmarinom koja se automatski progurala na mjesto favorita.


Then you have the most adorable and the most addictive smelling holiday-themed mini range – the L'Occitane Collection Joyeuses Fêtes. I call it a mini collection as there are only three products which include a soap, a hand cream and a lip balm but the scent is so well-made that I believe it deserves to be expanded on many other products. I haven't tried the lip balm but I have tried the Joyeuses Fêtes Hand Cream (30g) which is divine. You know how it looks, L'Occitane hand creams are the cutest and the addition of the red & gold accents surely doesn't hurt. The scent though – it's spot on for a holiday/festive collection. It smells a bit fruity, yummy and reminds me of an expensive perfume. It's one of those scents that's hard to describe but I'm certain most people would enjoy. I have to say that, if made in an EDT version, it could have easily rivaled the amazing Arlesienne EDT. This festive hand cream is of a medium thick texture and provides good nourishment to the skin (not overly thick or oily but not light either, it's on the middle ground). You also have the Joyeuses Fêtes Soap (50g) which is a scent-bomb. Unopened, it has made my beauty cabinet smell amazing – when I've opened it up, the scent bursted out of the cabinet! Visually, there's not much going on. It actually looks quite plain so have that in mind. The scent really is what draws me in. I'll probably gift a mini Joyeuses Fêtes set to a friend for Christmas as it's such a sweet treat, don't you think?

Potom sam se upoznala sam najsimpaticnijim i najmirisnijim praznicnim proizvodima  – L'Occitane Joyeuses Fêtes mini kolekcijom. Nazvala sam je ‘mini’ kolekcijom posto se sastoji od samo tri proizvoda; sapuna, kreme za ruke i balzama za usne. No, miris kojim su ovi proizvodi prozeti je tako dobro napravljen da sam ubijedjena kako zasluzuje jos bolju zastupljenost u vidu prosirivanja kolekcije. Nisam isprobala balzam za usne no ono sto jesam isprobala je  Joyeuses Fêtes krema za ruke 30g (kao i uvijek, 13,50KM), koja me odusevila. Vec ste sigurno upoznate sa popularnim L'Occitane mazalicama za ruke koje uvijek izgledaju slatko i simpaticno no ova putna pakovanja od 30g su mi narocito draga. Ovom prilikom je pakovanje ukraseno praznicnim crveno-zlatnim detaljima koji svakako da ne odmazu no pravi razlog zbog kojeg volim i preporucujem da je isprobate je – miris! Mislim da su sa namjerom ili sasvim slucajno stvorili idealan miris za praznike koji ce svakome izmamiti osmijeh. Pomalo je vocni no na jedan topao nacin, slastan je i na nekom nivou me podsjeca na skupocjeni parfem. Tesko je opisati ovu mirisnu simfoniju no prilicno sam sigurna da ce se dopasti vecini (ako ne svima). Ukoliko bi bio uoblicen kao EDT – znam da cete mi reci da pregrizem jezik ali…mislim da ima potencijala da bude rival cak fantasticnom Arlesienne EDT-u. Krema je srednje gustine i pruza dobru njegu rukama no nije masna ali nije niti isuvise lagana (tacno je u zlatnoj sredini). Takodjer imate i Joyeuses Fêtes sapun 50g (cca 6KM) koji je prava mirisna bombica! Neotvoren je uzmirisao cijelu policu na kojoj sam ga ostavila a cim sam mu skinula praznicnu kosuljicu, zamirisalo je cijelo kupatilo. Vizuelno se ne istice, cak je dosta obican ali miris…Draga osoba ce definitivno dobiti mini Joyeuses Fêtes set za Bozic – zar nece biti divan poklon?
