Created through the distillation of authentic A.O.C. lavender, blended with the peppery, nutmeg scent of burnt wood. L’Occitane L’Occitan Eau De Toilette is a panoramic and complex fragrance, redolent with the rich scents of Provence, in all their ruggedness and mystery. Intended for men, but women love it, too.
The L’Occitan range celebrates classic Provence and its men. The intense blue of the fields of lavender, the red soil of Roussillon, the sun that tans the skin, the siesta in the shade of the olive trees. The very rawness of the scents of Provence are reflected in our L’Occitan collection. Discover rugged and fragrant L’Occitan.
While exploring his native Provence nearly 25 years ago, Olivier Baussan created L’Occitane by capturing the region’s most subtle fragrances and blending them with natural ingredients. Using the traditional method of extraction, he developed L’Occitane’s very first products based on essential oils extracted from local plants.
From his rustic roots in Provence, Olivier dreamed of discovering new horizons, to travel beyond his native land and experience other cultures. In keeping with this spirit, L’Occitane developed a humanitarian-partnership with African women. In the Burkina Faso village in Africa, the native women harvest Shea nuts and are the co-producers of L’Occitane’s complete Shea Butter Collection. Thus, it is a tale of Provence meets Africa on ethical grounds.
Today, L’Occitane focuses on protecting the fading traditions and vanishing techniques that everyone should be enjoying. L’Occitane breathes new life into these authentic customs by recreating the genuine articles such as its famous “Marseilles Soaps” as well as the revival of its Verbena and Lavender Harvests each year.
