L’Occitane Brings the Beauty and Essence of Southern France to Vancouver
Known for its natural beauty products, the L’Occitane store on the corner of Robson and Burrard in Vancouver opened its doors to a bigger and brighter space just over one month ago and is located a couple of blocks away from its former location. Last week, Modern Mix Vancouver was invited to celebrate its grand opening at a media cocktail event that included good food, drink and even better samples of skincare and beauty products!
The design of L’Occitane’s first Vancouver flagship store is inspired by the authentic, colourful and warm atmosphere of a Provençal painter’s workstation, a trait common among all of their 2,000+ boutiques in 70 countries. During the evening of the media cocktail at the Vancouver store, guests were treated to some of the classic and well known L’Occitane beauty and skincare products with the assistance of very cute and traditionally French dressed L’Occitane sales associates.
Every collection from L’Occitane is inspired by natural scents and oils from the French countryside, including almond, cherry blossom, lavender, shea butter, cade, peony, and rose. The use of essential oils and plant and flower extracts is what makes the brand stand out from the rest and is the reason their fragrances are stimulating and invigorating and their skincare products help repair, restore and revitalize all skin types.
With the holidays just around the corner, L’Occitane has you covered for the beauty and skincare lovers on your list. There are a wide variety of collections available including one that’s sure to be a best seller this season: the shea butter hand cream collection. Or if you’re open to trying a fresh new fragrance, take a whiff of the Arlesienne eau de toilette, a “feminine floral fusion” using extract from rose, violet and saffron from the region of southern France called Provence.
Visit the L’Occitane website to find the perfect and beautifully scented skincare product you’re looking for and read more information about the natural ingredients they are known for using in their beauty products. For the guys: the brand carries men’s products that are worth checking out online as well. Or better yet, drop by the Robson and Burrard store to ask the knowledgeable staff any questions you have and sample some products to find the right skincare product for you.
