This latest fine fragrance from L’Occitane en Provence is inspired by the ancient Provençale city of Arles – and the feminine silhouette of the Arlésienne woman, an ‘ideal’ which has inspired painters from Van Gough to Picasso. Three precious flowers dance in Arlésienne’s elegant heart: fiery saffron, voluptuous rose and soft, sweet violet.
Radiant notes of saffron flower deliver peppery, spicy hints, before the Grasse roses unfurl beside spring like lily of the valley, and finally settles into the powdery warmth of violet and white woods.
L’Occitane en Provence Arlésienne £39 for 75ml eau de toilette
