The first gourmand aromatic fragrance by L’Occitane, Terre de Lumière Eau de Parfum, is said to be inspired by the Provençal light, in particular during the ‘Golden Hour’ – the last hour before the sun sets and the first hour of light in the morning. The creation of the Terre de Lumière fragrance is above all a human adventure. It’s the story of an encounter between three of Givaudan’s perfumers and the harmony of their craft, their love of Provence and their childhood memories.
1. Captivating Fragrance
This gourmand aromatic fragrance is both fresh and warm, consisting primarily of edible notes such as honey and almond. Zesty and aromatic at first, the fragrance melts into lavender honey, like a dessert for the senses, before settling into sensual balsamic and musky base notes.
2. Bringing Gourmand Back
Gourmand as a genre will be big news once again in 2017. The comforting, food-inspired fragrance family seems only natural to turn to in times of uncertainty – and it is far from the 90's scent bombs that began this trend. Gourmand is now taking a turn to freshness, sophistication and wearability.
3. It’s What’s In It
L’Occitane follows a strict formulation charter to guarantee the best quality, the best efficiency, and an optimal pleasure of use, while respecting people and environment. Striving to use high-quality, traceable, natural ingredients, they use over 200 botanical ingredients which are carefully selected for their effectiveness and their ability to give your skin the elements it needs to be beautiful.
4. Unlike Any Other
Terre de Lumière (meaning the land of light) is showcased at Heathrow in a one-of-a-kind high-profile, creative podium using theatre and ‘retail-tainment’. It breaks with previous chapters that have focused on a single ingredient. Terre de Lumière is composed around a multitude of facets where ingredients play as instruments to convey emotions.
5. Trio of Talent
Terre de Lumière was created by renowned perfumer Calice Becker, who closely collaborated with the talented Shyamala Maisondieu and Nadège Le Garlantezec. The trio worked on the fragrance in order to create an innovative scent, playing on the tension between masculine freshness and delicious feminine softness. The trio has accomplished just that and in so doing have produced the first gourmand aromatic fragrance from L’Occtaine—and we can’t get enough.
