An outing to a L’Occitane en Provence boutique is reminiscent of a trip to the region from which the French beauty company takes its name. From the bright yellow signage and the limewashed walls, to the warm ochre terracotta floors, there are notes of Provence everywhere.
Over 15 years, we have examined the art and science of beauty rituals and the painstaking precision required to create some of the finest products on the market.
A blanket of yellow covers the rolling hills of Corsica, France’s island of beauty, creating a scent that drifts far out to the sea. The arid maquis is densely layered with myrtle, rosemary, thyme, sage, and cork oak; alongside this fragrant scrubland are fields of immortelle, a vivid yellow flower that mingles mightily.
They may be Provence’s finest purveyors of the best ingredients for skin-care products, but L’Occitane en Provence is smart with accessories, too.
