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.

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.
