L’Occitane recently launched their new Eau De Parfum called Oud & Rose (75ML for 399AED), and they had their launch event last night at the Cove Beach Jumeirah Beach Hotel.
The Oud & Rose fragrance was inspired by an oriental twist infused with a garden full of May flowers, and includes many special ingredients such as Vanilla, Patchouli, Cedar and Oud wood.
The entrance for the L’occitane Oud & Rose event was absolutely enchanting with it’s theme of soft gold and white roses.
The packaging of the bottle was also inspired by arabic calligraphy, truly depicting the Oriental inspiration infused into the fragrance.
The Oud & Rose collection also consists of a shimmering body milk (250ml for 139AED) and a shimmering shower gel (250ml for 95AED).
I don’t usually like my perfumes too floral and the Oud & Rose was a lovely infusion of oriental spice and the Oud, which surprinsly wasn’t overly empowering like most Arabic perfumes. I loved the fact that L’occitane launched this fragrance in an EDP instead of a EDT. I always have to test perfumes on my wrist first. I seem to have a lot of acidity in my skin, which tends to make a lot of perfumes smell oddly powderly on me. Luckily, this wasn’t the case with the Oud & Rose. The combination of the ingredients in the Oud & Rose compliment each other beautifully, and it’s a fragrance that can work quite androgynously, for men and women.
