(119) L'Occitane - Eau Universlle

15.6.12

From a young age I have loved cologne - I think being half Mauritian and having my nan literally drown me in it from birth has much to contribute to that haha. (My nan always used 'Bien-etre' to all my Mauritian and French readers out there you know the one!)

When L'occitaine released their new line of colognes the 'Eau Universelle' was the one I was really eager to try. This is a unisex scent which is so light and easy to wear, the scent is quite invigorating with citrus, bergamot and grapefruit. I use cologne's like I would a body mist, I find them really refreshing to wear in the warmer months and prefer them over heavy fragrances (colognes are less concentrated than EDT). I love the packaging it's so slick and how amazing is the size of 'Eau Universelle' it's 300 ml!

If you guys get a chance to try this have a smell it's so uplifting. You can even put a couple of caps full in to a hot run bath it's amazing! I remember my grandad used to always have some on a handkerchief in his suit pocket. Do any of you use cologne? Have any of you smelt this? 

Another fabulous French find! Check it out HERE

Lots of Love

  4. Ahh, that sounds amazing, really nice and summery. I'm in need of a new summer scent so definitely going to be giving this one a try when I get the chance.

  6. I swear we've still got a huge bottle of bien-ĂȘtre in our house. My mum would put cologne on me after every bath and she still puts on handkerchiefs today!
