Today I want to introduce you to one of my favorite new launches from one of my favorite brands of all time, L’Ocittane’s Verbena Frisson Collection. I’ve been obsessed with fresh scents this summer and L’Occitane has yet to do me wrong! This particular fragrance is inspired by the summertime verbena harvest in Provence. Freshly picked verbena leaves travel along rivers and streams and their scent blends with the fresh running water. Frisson de Verveine is a sparkling, aqueous fragrance that blends top notes of lemon and bergamot with a heart of fresh verbena and cucumber.

L’Occitane makes the most gorgeous, chic glass bottles for their fragrances and this is no exception. I love the raised glass leaf the bottle is adorned with. This scent lingers for hours, especially when layered with other parts of the fragrance collection, but even by itself, it does last forever! 

Immediately after spraying the L’Occitane Frisson de Verveine fragrance I detect the sweet lemon smell, but it’s overpowered by the verbena and cucumber. After waiting a few minutes for it to dry down, I really detect the lemon notes right away. It is such a fresh and fabulous fragrance! 

l'occitane verbena frisson perfumeThe Frisson Verbena Fresh Shower Gel creates my new favorite shower experience. Shower time is my favorite time of the day- whether I get a chance to bathe in the morning or the evening doesn’t matter, but I love applying shower gel. It is my one time I get to myself for a few minutes during the day and I love to relax and let the scent of my body wash mix with the hot water and totally envelop me in the fragrance.

This shower gel has little bubbles in it, that I almost thought were exfoliating beads at first. It turns out they are just little infused bubbles. It makes me think of the sparkling streams the verbena leaves travel along. I highly recommend getting the shower gel to intensify the fragrance- they work magically together! 

l'occitane verbena frisson body productsThe Frisson Verbena Bath Salts are the one piece of the line I haven’t tried yet. I don’t take baths all that often but I have plans this week to soak my feet in the tub with some of these salts. I think that will be so invigorating for me to soak my big, swollen preggo feet! 

And lastly, my absolute favorite piece of the line, the Frisson Verbena Gel for Legs and Feet has been totally rocking my world lately. I was taking pictures before I realized that this awesome little gel comes with a roller ball, so you can’t see it in this post, but I will show you in another one soon! It is formulated with a combination of cypress essential oils and althea officinalis to intensely refresh skin and tired legs.I can tell you this preggo is LOVING this on my feet and legs. It is seriously amazing.

    I’m dying to try this collection, in fact I’m playing with my cart right now at L’Occitane’s website. I can’t afford to buy everything at this time but I at least want to try one product from this line.

    This scent sounds heavenly, and the cooling gel is something I know I would like. I bought a peppermint cooling spray for my feet from Ulta, but it doesn’t last long enough. I want this!
