L´Occitane – Solid Perfumes November 6, 2011

Eu zic ca din geanta unei femei nu ar trebui sa lipseasca un parfum, pentru ca niciodata nu stii cand ai o dupa-amiaza mai lunga, sau o intalnire importanta, sau pur si simplu ai uitat sa te parfumezi cand pleci de acasa in graba dimineata. Ei bine, chestia e ca in geanta unei femei gasesti ORICE :), nu-i asa?! Iar o sticla de parfum ocupa ceva spatiu in geanta, plus ca daca mai e si plina, e si destul de grea.

Ce fac eu?! Folosesc parfumurile solide, cremoase si fara alcool de la L´Occitane :). Pagina L´Occitane in limba romana o gasiti aici, iar cea in limba norvegiana este aici. Deocamdata eu am 2 parfumuri solide, care as zice eu ca seamana la ambalaj si consistenta cu balsamurile de buze… dar mirosul face diferenta! Ambalajul lor este o cutiuta de aluminiu, micuta, usoara, care se inchide ermetic, e usor de manevrat si transporat, nu este fragila si este placuta la atingere. Eu am parfumurile de un an si mirosul este la fel de puternic, iar consistenta este exact la fel.

1. Cherry Blossom (Concrete de Parfum): este un parfum floral care contine note de varf : cirese, frezie, coacaze; note de mijloc: flori de cires si crini salbatici si notele de baza: lemn de trandafir, chihlimbar si mosc. Parfumul miroase foarte frumos a flori de cirese si a crini in plina floare, parca te-ai afla intr-o primavara/vara continua :). Cred ca este un parfum dragut, feminin, tineresc, elegant, fin si romantic. Toata gama de produse din categoria flori de cires o gasiti aici.2. Roses des 4 Reines (Concrete de Parfum): este un parfum caruia de curand i-au schimbat ambalajul, arata mai bine inainte dupa parerea mea, dar cred ca este o chestie de gust. Sper ca in cutie este acelasi produs cu ce am eu :). Parfumul imbina 4 arome diferite de trandafir: cel din Grasse (localitate in Franta considerata capitala mondiala a parfumurilor), cu cel bulgaresc, marocan si turcesc. Despre acest parfum pot spune ca are o aroma puternica de trandafiri, este elegant, dragut si senzual. Toata gama de produse din categoria Rose o gasiti aici.Concluzii: Parfumurile solide de la L´Occitane sunt disponibile la preturi acceptabile, sunt utile, usor de purtat fie in calatorii fie in geanta de zi cu zi, ambalajul este dragut si practic. Parfumul este cremos fiind foarte usor de aplicat. Un MINUS ar fi ca mirosul nu persista foarte mult (1,5-2 ore), astfel ca este necesar sa il aplicati de cateva ori pe zi, sau eventual sa folositi si alte produse din aceeasi gama (crema de corp, sampoane, gel de dus, balsam pentru par, etc) care poate ca ar parfuma pielea in profunzime. Nu am incercat. Din partea mea, parfumurile solide de la L´Occitane primesc 4 flori de crin, pentru ca mi-au salvat “pielea” de multe ori :).English version

I say that a perfume should not be missing from a lady’s purse, because you never know when you’ll have a long afternoon, or an important meeting, or simply you forgot to put on a perfume when you leave home in a hurry in the morning. Well, the thing is that you can find ANYTHING in a lady’s purse, isn’t it?! And a perfume bottle will take some space in a purse, moreover when it is full, it is even heavier.

What I do?! I use solid, creamy, alcohol free perfumes from L´Occitane :). The L´Occitane website in Romanian can be found here, and the Norwegian one is here. At the moment I own two solid perfumes, which I say resemble in package and consistence with lip balms… but the smell makes all the difference! The packing is a aluminium box, small, light, which closes tight, it is easy to handle and transport, it is not fragile and it feels nice to touch. I have my perfumes for about a year ago and the scent is as strong as in the beginning, and the consistence as well.

1. Cherry Blossom (Concrete de Parfum): it is a floral perfume which contains as top notes: cherry, freesia, blackcurrant; middle notes: cherry blossom, lily of the valley; and base notes: rosewood, amber, musk. The perfume smells really nice of cherry flowers and blossomed lilies, like you are in the middle of a perpetual spring/summer :). I think it is a cute, feminine, young, elegant, refined and romantic perfume. All the product line from the cherry flower category can be seen here.

2. Roses des 4 Reines (Concrete de Parfum): is a perfume who had recently changed the packing, it looked better before if you ask me, but I guess this is a matter of taste. I hope that the box contains the same product as the one I have :). The perfume combines 4 different rose aromas: the Grasse rose (from a place in France which is considered as the world capital of perfumes), Bulgarian, Moroccan and Turkish roses. What I can say about this perfume is that it has a strong rose scent, it is elegant, nice and sensual. The whole product line from the Rose category can be found here.

Conclusions: The solid perfumes from L´Occitane are available at reasonable prices, they are useful, easy to carry either on a journey or in the daily purse, the packaging is nice and practical. The perfume is creamy and very easy to apply. A MINUS would be that it does not last that long (1.5-2 hours), so that it might be necessary to apply it several times during the day, or eventually use other products from the same line (body lotion, shampoo, bath gel, hair conditioner, and so on) that would possibly perfume the skin deeper. I have not tried this. From me, the solid perfumes of L´Occitane get 4 lilies, because they saved “my skin” many times :).
