Flower with a Thousand Petals

According to a Mediterranean legend, a beautiful nymph named Paeonia was so courted by the gods that a jealous goddess transformed her into a flower with a thousand petals: the Peony. Since then, this symbol of beauty has brightened every Spring with its dazzling show of colors and aromatic scents.

To understand the secrets of this flower, L’OCCITANE approached a world-renowned French nurseryman, Jean-Luc Rivière – a man with a passion for peonies, whose family has devoted itself to breeding and cultivating them for 160 years, in the Drôme region of France. The Rivière family's peony collection boasts an extraordinary palette of shades.

These have inspired the fragrance and bodycare collection that captures the subtle aura of the peony in a rich floral scent with hints of green freshness. L’OCCITANE’S Peony fragrance and bodycare products are enriched with a peony extract that has been exclusively developed from Rivière peonies*.
