L'Occitane La Collection de Grasse - Vanille & Narcisse Eau de Toilette

L'Occitane's new fragrance collection features four new fragrances created by Perfumer Karine Dubreuil for L'Occitane. Inspired by her childhood town, she created La Collection de Grasse, featuring precious extracts from around the world. Fragrances in this collection include - Vanille & Narcisse, Magnolia & Mure, Jasmine & Bergamote and The Vert & Bigarade.

L'Occitane La Collection de Grasse Vanille & Narcisse

The fragrance comes packaged in a simple, but heavy glass bottle. It looks sleek enough from the front, but is a tad heavy to travel with. Vanille & Narcisse is a rather strong fragrance that packs quite a punch. It is spicy with a touch of floral, a little too heavy for the summertime. This fragrance features Vanilla Absolute from Madagascar and Narcissus Absolutes from France, so the scent is very true to the description. For me, Vanille & Narcissus would be a better fall/winter scent, perfect for when the weather is a little more cold. During summer, I'd prefer something a little more light. For an EDT, it it very long lasting - by the end of the day, I can still smell strong hints of spicy vanilla. It also is more of a grown up scent - I don't have a problem with that at all, and if you prefer sophisticated, rich, spicy fragrances, this one is something you'll love. I haven't tried the other fragrances from this collection, but I'm hoping Magnolia & Mure would probably be a better fit for summer!

    1. That's too bad it din't last on you! Most scents don't last on me, but I find this a little too strong...
