Orchids & Neroli: White & Feminine Flowers

Precious and much sought after, Orchid and Neroli have a hint of extreme refinement, and are also both precious symbols of femininity. These are just two reasons to unite them in a new fragrance.

The Orchid comes in countless varieties and colors with very different perfumes. A symbol of femininity, longevity, luxury and absolute passion, it’s perfect for declaring devotion to one’s beloved. This flower can also be indulged in for a wedding, a birth or a birthday. Embodying consuming passion and remarkable female perfection, the white Orchid, with floral and gourmet notes, also gives its name to the “Orchid” wedding anniversary, celebrated on the occasion of 55 years of marriage.

Much more rare and delicate, Neroli, the essential oil of bitter orange blossom obtained by distillation or cold absorption, has an equally enchanting symbolism. Formerly used in wreaths by honeymooners, the Neroli flower is the very symbol of purity and innocence. Considered both as a source of gentleness and vitality, it releases an unmistakably mesmerizing and soothing fragrance.

Because Orchid and Neroli are both symbols of femininity, L'OCCITANE has combined them to create a subtle fragrance at once citrusy, floral, rich, sweet, and zesty. A creation that enriches the Collection de Grasse with a bright spring note.
