I adore the scent of citrus in the actual fruit but I always find it doesn’t quite smell the same when it’s in a fragrance, I always find they smell a little off and fake. L’Occitane’s new Citrus Verbena collection is the citrus scent I’ve been waiting for. It smells like lemons and grapefruits were mixed with verbena and just became the most delicious summer scent. There are ten products in the collection, everything from perfume, to hair products to deodorant, so you can literally soak in Citrus Verbena from head to toe. We received two products to try, the Fresh Body Milk and Fresh Shampoo.
Citrus Verbena Fresh Shampoo
The first time I used this shampoo was in the middle of a heatwave and it was just so refreshing and really made my head cool off. I don’t use a ton of shampoo to begin with, maybe an amount the size of a quarter but this one lathers so well I need even less. And while I didn’t have the matching conditioner, it left my hair feeling clean but almost hydrated enough that I was considering not using one at all. It also gave my hair a lot more shine than most products do.
Citrus Verbena Fresh Body Milk
I really can’t express how much I love the scent of the Citrus Verbena collection and it’s this body milk that originally sold me on it. The second I opened the bottle I knew I was going to be using this product a lot, regardless of how well it worked. Luckily it’s L’Occitane so the quality more than lived up to my expectations. The milk is extremely light and just melts into your skin without leaving you with that sticky feeling you can get from body milks and it really cools your skin down. My skin was hydrated and smelled amazing for hours after I applied it.
I knew from the first sniff that I was going to be buying other products from the collection. I already bought two of them and I have a feeling there’s going to be more in my future. I didn’t already have a favourite scent from L’Occitane but I definitely have one now.
