L'Occitane Magical Leaves Limited-Edition Collection

Magical Leaves, a limited-edition collection from L'Occitane for the Holidays, features a fabulous collection of bath and body products, with zesty notes of verbena and citrus fruits along with hints of hazelnut and vanilla.

Magical Leaves Hand Cream ($10) - A wonderfully fresh smelling hand cream in a travel-friendly size. It is rather light and absorbs extremely fast without being greasy or heavy. It doesn't contain the 20% Shea Butter that the regular hand cream from L'Occitane does, so I find it best suited for the day. The smell is very citrusy and fresh without being too overpowering. Would make for an amazing hand cream to be used in the summer too!

Magical Leaves Exfoliating Shower Gel ($20) - A foaming shower gel enriched with crushed hazelnuts for exfoliation. The exfoliating beads are rather small and the shower gel itself foams up pretty well. The smell, unlike other products in this range isn't very refreshing or zesty. It is rather mild. My skin felt a tad stripped after showering with this, so I needed quite a bit of lotion afterwards! It is better suited for the hotter months and great for when you want to feel extremely squeaky clean!

Magical Leaves Eau de Toilette Spray ($20) - My favourite piece from the collection! Love the way this EDT wears off on me! It is very fresh, with strong notes of citrus, hints of warm vanilla and surprisingly quite long lasting on me for an EDT. I much prefer a spray like this one than a roll-on. I would buy this scent in a heartbeat if L'Occitane came up with a bigger size. Again, a lovely spring/summer scent and perfect if you like lighter, fresh citrus based scents!

Overall, the Magical Leaves collection makes for a great gift for just about anyone who loves luxurious bath, body and fragrances. The collection also comes with a body milk and soap to layer and make the fragrance last longer. If there is just one product you must get from the Magical Leaves collection, it would have to be the EDT!

Available online at and at all L'Occitane boutiques nationwide.

  1. wow, I really like the cute small packaging of their perfumes. I must get one for myself whenever I get the time to. The only con I find is that it won't be that safe to carry around of its made out of glass and looks very delicate.

    1. Yeah, that's too but I've been having it in my bag for a week or so and thankfully nothing has happened. But I'm scared and keep checking every now n then :D
