Gorgeous, buy it if you can.
Ugh, why is this line being discontinued?!
A few years ago, L'Occitane introduced their La Collection de Grasse, meant to highlight the best that the Grasse region had to offer. Unfortunately, it was too good to last. A few of the originals have long been discontinued ( in Australia ) at least : Magnolia & Mure, Fleur d'Or & Acacia and Neroli & Orchidee were especial standouts.
Floral/Citrus (see Fragrantica for full notes). White florals are notoriously pungent and can get rather cloying/nauseating in the heat. But it's tempered out nicely by the citrusy bergamot; much like a dash of lemon to cut through a creamy cake. Overall, it's a lovely scent for hot, summery nights, or slightly humid sunny days.
Wear time :
To be very honest, none of L'Occitane's scents last very long on the skin, but they do cling to your clothes very nicely. I estimate one can get a good 4 hours out of this, but it's highly dependent on one's body chemistry.
Like I said, it's being discontinued, which is a real shame as L'Occitane has started replacing most of it's feminine scents with sweet fruity-florals and powder bombs. At least Neroli & Orchidee is will still be with us.
