L'Occitane La Collection De Grasse - The Vert & Bigarade EDT review

L'Occitane have just launched four new fine fragrances developed by top perfumer Karine Dubreil.

Grasse is known as the perfumery capital of the world, a town in the south of France. Local growers mastered the art of cultivating rare and delicate flowers such as orange blossom, rose and jasmine. Adventurous perfumers travelled to distant lands like the far east and brought back ingredients like Madagascan vanilla to complement and enrich the fragrances and that is how modern perfumery was born.

This was the inspiration for Collection de Grasse

The four EDT's are

Jasmin & Bergamote
Magnolia & Mure
Vanille & Narcisse
Thé Vert & Bigarade

I have samples of all so will be writing a review shortly of each of them but one that particularly caught my attention and that I simply couldn't wait to share was the delightful Thé Vert & Bigarade.

L'Occitane say 

Energizing upon first contact, this fragrance has head notes of bitter orange, made with essential oil from the Mediterranean. Sparkling citrus notes evolve to reveal a heart of green tea - using an extract from Japan - and yerba mate. An aromatic blend of cedar, thyme and musk compose the base of this fresh and citrusy fragrance.

My thoughts 

I loved Elizabeth Arden's Green Tea fragrance and this is every bit as beautiful if not more.

Bursting with light citrus notes at first which make way to reveal a wonderfully fresh, green and sparkling green tea scent. Wearing this I picture myself transported to sunnier climes (The South of France would be ideal) sat in a tea dress, sipping iced tea and people watching. Light, bright and youthful.

Thé Vert & Bigarade is the perfect fragrance for Spring heading into Summer and one that I haven't been able to resist wearing since I received it.

The bottle is clean, simple and classy. It is already on my bathroom shelf.

L'Occitane Thé Vert & Bigarade Eau de Toilette £49 for 75ml
