L'OCCITANE Peony Shower Gel and Eau de Toilette | Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

If you find yourself looking for a light and airy floral fragrance that is fused with a subtle, fresh green undercurrent for the summer, then you really must try the L'Occitane Peony Collection.

The fresh scent of the fresh Peonies is neither too sweet, nor is it overpowering, instead it is light, pleasant and refreshing. The Peony Shower Gel is delectably scented and uplifting lathering gel that delights the senses. The formula moisturizes the skin, while gently cleansing, and it leaves it soft and supple. The scent sits close to the skin, but fills that bathroom with an enchanting light floral scent.

This shower gel transforms into a light foam that gently cleanses the body. It leaves behind a green floral scent inspired by a blooming peony. Contains a peony extract from DrĂ´me (France).

The Peony Eau de Toilette is a light and airy fresh floral that sits close to the skin, and is neither overwhelming nor in the least bit cloying. Instead, the sweetness is tempered by a fresh green aroma that smells delectable. If you prefer a longer lasting fragrance, then I recommend trying the Eau de Parfum instead since the Eau de Toilette has a shorter wear-time.

The Paeonia Eau de Toilette captures the subtle aura of the peony flower, in a generous perfume marked with green freshness. 

According to L'Occitane,

There is a Mediterranean legend of a beautiful nymph named Paeonia who was so courted by the gods that a jealous goddess transformed her into a flower with a thousand petals: a peony. Since then, this symbol of beauty brightens every spring with its dazzling show of colors and scents.
Overall Assessment: Such a lovely scent to gently and subtly enchant the senses.

Peony Eau de Toilette $55.00 for 2.5 oz. from L'OCCITANE.
Peony Shower Gel $20.00 for 8.4 oz. from L'OCCITANE (Affiliate Links).

    1. Aren't they pretty? It may have just enough fresh green aroma that you would like it. I definitely would sniff it at the store to see if it's a good fit for you!

  11. Oh my gosh - that packaging is so pretty and feminine. I am not a huge fan of strictly just peony but mixed with other scents I can tolerate it. Regardless, this sounds lovely.

    1. It really is, Honey! This is a lovely variant of peony because of the addition of the fresh green aroma! It is really lovely!

  12. I grew up with a massive bunch of peonies outside my bedroom window, so you'd think I'd have fond memories of the scent, but I've never been much of a fan. I do love the packaging though- so feminine and cute!

    1. How funny! This definitely is altered because of its coupling with the clean green aroma, but if you aren't fond of peonies this probably isn't the scent for you! I agree with you about the packaging– it really is pretty and feminine!
