Verbena is the essence of summer,sunshine and freshness.
With its citrus, green and woody scent, the L’Occitane Verbena limited edition 2020 is energising as it is soothing. Historically, Verbena was found in the south of France. Over time, hotter countries like Morocco began cultivating it and it died out in Provence. It was L’Occitane’s wish to replant and restore the verbena tradition in the region. Philippe and Magalie Mary, trusted partners, welcomed the idea and started to cultivate the lemon-scented plant in Jouques (Provence). A natural green oasis. A sheltered land between the mountains and protected by the Natura 2000 European label.
Thanks to this incredible terrain and the care given by our producers, this rare verbena has a unique olfactory note: crisp, green and powerful. The “Caring Guardians” farm 100% organically. No pesticides or fertilizers are used, even the ones allowed in organic agriculture regulations. They choose to keep their field small, making sure they’re giving it their undivided attention. They replant every year and the weeding is done by hand.
L’Occitane has created a unique body care collection of playful textures. Dressed in an eye-catchinglimited edition design for a refreshing beauty experience every day. The entire Verbena range now adorns Ayumi’s lovely design depicting typical Provençale accessories and traditions. Hats, wicker baskets, the sun and napping. L’occitane’s commitment to biodiversity is represented by the green oasis that is the Verbena field in Jouques. With various butterflies and flowers.
“Harmony was the theme of this illustration. The leaves of the verbena become a bed, hang a swing from the branch of the lemon. People sit on Pomelo. I wanted to draw the beautiful scenery of people living with nature.”
Ayumi Takahashi, Illustrator

I was having a real flat week mood wise. The constant cloud and rain, I’m sure it’s affecting even the best of us. I got sent the limited edition Verbena range this morning and I have to say it’s true: fragrance can be such a mood booster. Verbena is such an uplifting, citrusy, happy scent. I instantly felt an uplift in energy and quick shift in mood. If you are around a @loccitane_uk_ire boutique I would pop in for a quick spritz if allowed. There is a complete line available from body scrubs, frappe body cream or invigorating leg gel. What are your rituals for a quick pick me up during a flat, grey day? Mine include a pampering shower, spritz of fragrance and something delicious to eat. ________________________________________ #loccitane #verbena #loccitaneverbena #newinbeauty #summervibes #summerbeauty #bbloggers #romanianblogger #irishbbloggers #irishbloggers #creatorsie #summer2020 #over30blogger #over30style
