Lavender Harvest

A True Story

L’OCCITANE invites you to discover the new products from the latest Lavender Harvest.

AN EXPLOSION OF COLOR AND FRAGRANCE
Picture if you will fields with row after row of silvery-leafed bushes in mid-summer, radiating lovely purple flowers on long, leggy stems. As you brush by them, you release a scent that encapsulates the very soul of Haute Provence. A heady yet fresh fragrance, as warm as the summer sun.

 
 EACH YEAR L’OCCITANE CELEBRATES THE LAVENDER HARVEST
Lavender is renowned for its purifying, relaxing and antiseptic properties. The lavender grown on the plateaux of Haute Provence is the exclusive source of the AOC Lavender Essential Oil reserved for the L’OCCITANE collection. Lavender Harvest offers a range of purifying skincare products that are particularly suited to oily and combination skin, as well as products for the bath, shower and home.


 OLIVIER REMINISCES
Where I grew up, when the lavender is in bloom the earth looks as if it is mirroring the deep blueness of the sky. It is a time to reflect on the glory of summer as the Contadour Mountain is covered with blossoming fields. If I close my eyes, I can smell the sweet, heady scent of the flowers that even the bees can’t resist. Where I grew up in Haute Provence, people harvest the flowers on their knees, as if in homage to their goodness.
