L'Occitane Pivoine Delicate range: EDT, lipsctick, lipbalm and shimmering powder

I can't describe how much I love the Pivoine Delicate range from L'Occitane. The packaging is simply beautiful and I think I will keep it forever, as it is just too pretty! :) This post is picture heavy, because I took far too many photos of all the beautiful goodies I received.
There is plenty of products to choose from, so If you would like to treat yourself to something  lovely, here is a link to the full Pivoine Delicate range.
The Peony collection contains a Peony extract from the Drôme region in the south of France. According to Greek mythology, the Peony was once a beautiful nymph named Paeonia. She received so much attention from the gods that another jealous nymph turned her into a flower! 

 

L'Occitane Pivoine Délicate Eau de Toilette 75ml* £35.00 link

INFO: The Peony is a symbol of beauty and femininity. Every spring, when it comes into bloom, it puts on a dazzling show of colours and scents. The Pivoine Délicate Eau de Toilette celebrates the most tender garden Peony, with its pastel shades and large, luscious petals. Its fragrance blends the delicateness of Peony petals with delicate and fresh green scents of Rose and Lily of the Valley. Made with a Peony extract from the Drôme region of France, this fragrance has a luminous floral accord with a soft powdery trail.

MY OPINION: Floral fragrances are on the top of my list. I used Flower By Kenzo for the past 5 years and I will always love it. I try to be more adventurous with perfumes, but I keep going back to the same one. I think I might have found a new love. L'Occitane Pivoine Delicate EDT smells absolutely beautiful, with Rose being the most noticeable from all the notes, followed by Peony and Lily of The Valley. It is a powdery feminine scent, perfect for summer and romantic dates. 
The scent lasts for over five hours, before I need to spray some more on.

 

L'Occitane Pivoine Délicate Lip Balm Pêche Subtile 9g* £10.50 link 

  INFO:The Pivoine Délicate Pêche Lip Balm leaves lips subtly tinted in an iridescent peach colour for a beautiful, feminine look. Packaged in a pretty round tin with a floral design, it is perfectly sized to keep in your handbag. Apply to the lips with a finger.

MY OPINION: This lip balm is a very nourishing formula, perfect to keep in your handbag. It is very easy to apply on the go with a finger and it helps to soothe dry lips. I use it all the time, it is non sticky and gives my lips a lovely natural look. The packaging is very simple and pretty at the same time.


 

L'Occitane Pivoine Délicate Lipstick Pivoine Délicate 3.5g* £12.50 link 

  INFO:This lipstick enhances lips with a delicate pink veil of colour.

The rich texture, delicately perfumed and enriched with softening Peony extract, gives an instant feeling of comfort and leaves lips feeling light, and smooth.
Dermatologically tested.

MY OPINION: I used this lipstick in my FOTD post here and it quickly became my "go to" lipstick. It is the most beautifully packaged lippy I have ever seen. It would make a perfect gift that will loved forever! It it slightly scented, very creamy and leaves my lips soft and nourished. The finish it gives is sheer, but buildable and it's the most natural looking lipstick I have ever used. It is perfect for everyday use and it will suit all skin tones. 

 

L'Occitane Pivoine Délicate Shimmering Powder 8g* £22.00 link 

  INFO:Sublimate your body and hair with a pearly and perfumed veil. Formulated with natural-origin ingredients, the Pivoine Délicate Shimmering Powder releases a fine mist of pink and silver iridescence to beautify the body and hair and leave a silky, satin finish on the skin.

MY OPINION: This must be the most beautiful item from the Peony collection. The bottle with a cute pink pump looks amazing on my dressing table and adds a vintage/shabby chic feel to it. The shimmering powder is delicately scented with a subtle rose fragrance and gives a lovely pink/silver shimmer to my skin. I spray it onto my neck, décolletage and hair and every time I do it I feel like a princess :) I also use it to highlight my cheekbones.
