Treat your nose: L’Occitane en Provence Mer & Mistral EDT from La Collection de Grasse

L'Occitane Mer and Mistral perfume review

L’Occitane en Provence has done it again with another beautiful fragrance, this time for Father’s Day; Mer & Mistral EDT for summer 2014 is a super summery scent. With top notes of lemon and mandarin, middle notes of pine, cypress and rosemary, and base notes of cedar, white amber and musk, Mer & Mistral brings up feelings of oceanside vacations and little wooden huts.

When sprayed on me, you can catch more of the lemon and mandarin top notes, with a hint of pine. On my boyfriend, it smells more like pine and nature. A truly unisex fragrance, it smells great on both of us, and its something we can share together. Also due to the deeper notes in Mer & Mistral, I find it lasts longer than other La Collection de Grasse scents.

The bottle is an absolute beauty – housed in a blue tinted clear glass bottle in the same shape and size as all of the other La Collection de Grasse fragrances, it has a black spray topper and lid that contrasts the feminine gold spray topper and lid on Neroli & Orchidee.

In addition to the 75mL eau de toilette ($75), Mer & Mistral is available in a shower gel ($20), body gel (moisturizer – $24) and after-shave fluid ($36). A perfect father’s day gift or as a surprise for that special man in your life, Mer & Mistral is available both online and in store.

  1. I found this L’Occitane fragrance really disappointing 😦 smells so synthetic and like cheap pine air freshener compared to their other fragrances – I really like their Verdon EDT

I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments!
