L'Occitane x Pierre Herme

 
 Rhubarb, Clove and Nutmeg mixed with Grapefruit


Oliver Baussan invited his friend, pastry chef Pierre Herme, to compose a collection of scents for L'Occitane just the way he wanted. The result?  Beautifully crafted fragrances that are both complex and unequivocal, living memories of the Mediterranean and the island of beauty so loved by both men.

 
 We celebrated this collaboration between Oliver and Pierre with an intimate brunch at Le Jardin in Bonifacio Global City. All invited guests were treated to a surprise once opened the glass doors. We walked them through a brief history of the two creators, followed by macron station, and ended with  fragrances straight from France.

 Here in the macron station, you get the taste of  L'Occitane's holiday collection. (Literally!) It comes in three scents, Miel Mandarine, Rhubarb Pampelmousse and Jasmine Imortelle. The idea was, you get the two flavors and eat it together to recreate the scent.

 
My personal favorite Jasmin-Imortelle
