Gift Idea n°1: Golden Mimosa Seduction

Gentlemen, to make sure that your heart’s desire lights up when she opens her gifts, take a chance on L’Occitane’s new perfume, Fleur d’Or & Acacia, a floral, musky and luminous scent, plus a pretty pair of earrings from Médecine Douce, which recall the golden mimosa flowers.

Gift Idea n°2: Cocooning in Style

Picture a winter evening, a L’Occitane cinnamon scented candle alight and a Kaleido tray by Danish designer HAY on the coffee table in the living room carrying a steaming mug of hot chocolate. Yes, this is the definition of ‘relaxation.’

Gift Idea n°3: Exotic Escape

The Orient, Asia… to get away, there's no need to travel or to invest in plane tickets. Exoticism is at your fingertips with this perfume for him, the Vetyver cologne, with notes of cedar wood and nutmeg, and a Chinese style tray (by Ari on a sense of travel is guaranteed!

Gift Idea n°4: Colorful Delicacies

With winter approaching we appreciate two things, protecting our hands from the cold and warming up by eating sweet delights. With tasty oblong pastries from the French patisserie l’Éclair de Génie and a knob of L’Occitane hand cream, we are satisfied!

Gift Idea n°5: Return to Childhood

Christmas, it’s your chance to return to childhood… right down to the bathroom! For all the big kids, the best gift combination remains a L'Occitane Bonne Mère lavender soap and a submarine for the bath (design by Héctor Serrano forSeletti at Made in Design), the perfect regressive ornament!
