L'Occitane x Pierre Hermé - Pamplemousse Rhubarb Voyage Set

L'Occitane x Pierre Hermé - Voyage Set [click here]

This year, L'Occitane has brought two of my favourite worlds together - beauty and food, resulting in one of the prettiest limited edition collections out there this holiday season. Oliver Baussan, founder of L'Occitane, designed the packaging for this collaboration while his long time friend, pastry chef Pierre Hermé expertly crafted the fragrances. The inspiration behind this collaboration is Summer nights in Corsica. The moment I sampled the two fragrances, it brought back memories of late night dinners had with family and friends while Julian and I vacationed in Italy. I don't know what it is about certain scents, but they do a great job of bringing back memories of an exact time and place. I can definitely see why this collection was curated with the thought of summer nights in mind.

Pamplemousse Rhubarb Hand Cream 30ml
Pamplemousse Rhubarb Perfumed Soap 50g

The Scents
There are two scents crafted for this collection - Jasmin and  Pamplemousse Rhubarb, however, I opted for the latter to add to my growing collection. Both scents are equally lovely and long lasting on the skin. 
Jasmin Immortelle Neroli has a soft and airy floral scent that leans towards feminine. If you're like me and have tons of clean floral scents, you might want to try out Pamplemousse Rhubarb instead.
Pamplemousse Rhubarb starts off super fragrant; smelling strongly of a mix of grapefruit and rhubarb. If you're not into grapefruit or prefer a soft feminine scent, you will want Jasmin. However, if you don't mind a more masculine scent with strong cedar undertones, this one is for you. It's unlike any other fragrance I own and I have been absolutely loving it!

The Packaging
Can we take a moment to admire the packaging?! The colours used are totally on point for the summer nights vibe they were going for. The voyage set includes an adorable reusable tin can that will make a perfect gift for this holiday season. 

If you're looking for fresh, vibrant scents then look no further. The prices are reasonable and the packaging, adorable. 
A perfect holiday gift for that special someone on your list.
