L’Occitane’s Terre De Lumiere was my absolute favourite fragrance of 2017 and I had everyone tormented talking about it, making them smell me, making them try it and now, just when things had calmed down, L’Occitane have only gone and released a new version of Terre De Lumiere… Say bonjour, comment ca va, ou est le centre de George Pompidou, to L’Occitane’s Terre De Lumière L’Eau.
The bottle has the same shape as the original fragrance, but this time it’s got touches of pink on it, a nod to the dawn light of Provence. I love how the two Terre De Lumieres reflect the start of the day and the end of the day, making a grand duo altogether. Now because of these two perfumes, I feel the need to visit Provence. If it smells like this in the morning and smells like Terre De Lumiere in the evening, sign me up and ship me out lads. With top notes of bergamot, pink pepper and blackcurrant, heart notes of pink peony, and base notes of bitter almond essence, tonka bean and white musk, it’s a mix of bright zestiness, delicate floral and round warmth. To me, this is a more sophisticated scent than the original. It’s lighter and fresher, with hints of citrus and way more floral, making it the perfect daytime spring fragrance. Right now in Ireland, the skies are mainly grey and they can make me feel a bit meh, but every single time I spritz myself with this, I feel refreshed and it puts a little pep in my step and at the moment, I need all the pep I can get!
The scent is available now at €55 for 50mls and €75 for 90mlsand there’s an accompanying shower gel, body milk, radiant balm and perfumed soap if you’re a fan of layering your products and helping them last longer. AND, Mother’s Day is coming up in a few weeks so this might be a good one to treat the mammy to!
