L'Occitane Neroli & Orchidee EDT

This deluxe L’Occitane Néroli & Orchidée EDT sample (7.5ml) came free with a magazine so long ago I’ve forgotten which magazine it was. I took the above photo when I first got it too, there’s now roughly a third of it left.

Described as “a tantalising and lovely harmony between neroli from Tunisia and white orchid from Madagasar”, for me Néroli & Orchidée EDT is evocative of long lazy days picnicking in the park, drinking lemonade and reading books.

It’s light. It’s airy. It’s fresh. It’s delicate. It’s floral. It shouldn’t work for me because I’m not naturally drawn to floral scents. Yet, it does and this is the second year that I’ve been using L’Occitane’s Néroli & Orchidée EDT as my summer fragrance. I may have to buy a bottle when this one runs out.
