One of the things I love about L’Occitane is their commitment to fragrance collections. I love layering the same scent and it drives me crazy when I can’t find products that compliment each other. L’Occitane’s recently released Peony collection is pretty big, with over ten different pieces and four versions of Pivoine Sublime.
Pivoine Flora Eau De Toilette
I don’t think I ever put much thought into what peonies smell like and if I like them in perfume but Pivoine Flora is a really great scent for summer. It’s light, floral and sweet but not cloying. It’s not the longest lasting scent but it stuck around for roughly four hours in really humid weather before I stopped noticing it. The bottle itself is so pretty to look at and the scent matches.
Pivoine Sublime in Rose Nude
Pivoine Sublime looks and almost feels like Fresh’s lip treatments but there are quite a few differences. Yes, it’s the same metal tube and yes, it’s a really soft lip balm that I have a feeling will be on the melty side during the summer but it has peony extract and a light floral scent. Rose Nude is perfect if you want something subtle but not invisible, it just leaves a hint of rose on my lips and moisturizes for hours. It also has SPF 25 which I feel like more products need. There are four shades to pick from and all of them are gorgeous.
After trying these out, I guess I like peony more than I thought and I definitely love that this collection is perfect for summer.
