Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc – L’OCCITANE en Provence

A little while back, I attended the launch of L’OCCITANE‘s new collection, Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc.

Now that the collection is available to us in SA,  I wanted to share this gorgeous range with you.


Part of their La Collection de Grasse, Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc is a subtle, sophisticated range, where the main note, Iris, mirrors a mix of cool and warm.

Beautifully packaged, this collection is by far my favourite Iris based collection to date.

I was never a huge fan of Iris in the past. I just found the smell a little too sharp for my taste.

With this collection however, the contrast of White Iris (in the heart) and Iris Pallida (blue flower) in the base, makes for a truly beautiful scent! It smells more like a natural garden, rather than a single, overpowering scent.

It’s absolutely mesmerizing and I’ve been wearing it a lot lately.

The fragrance opens with blackcurrant and citrus notes that give it a lovely burst of freshness.

In the heart, white iris blends seamlessly with ylang-ylang and peach, adding a bit of floral fruitiness as the fragrance develops.

And in the base, blue iris is complimented with cedar and white musk, leaving a powdery yet woody scented finish.


The Eau de Toilette fragrance (R825 for 75ml) is complimented with a shower gel (R235 for 250ml), body lotion (R370 for 250ml), soap (R80 for 75g) and a hand cream (R120 for 30ml), all of which can be purchased at L’OCCITANE around the country of via their e-commerce website.

If you’re looking for a special signature scent that’s very French, then I would highly recommend that you give this range a sniff the next time you find yourself near a L’Occitane boutique

PS, if you’ve ever wondered how to correctly pronounce L’Occitane, next time just say “Lox-ee-tan” and watch the video below for a bit of a giggle.
