L’Occitane en Provence is a French cosmetic company, established in 1976 by Olivier Baussan, who was 23 at that time. Baussan found his source of inspiration in the southern Europe region, which includes the Southern half of France, Monaco, parts of Italy and Spain and has Occitan as the official language, which is the closest relative of Catalan language. The word “L’Occitane” signifies “the woman from Occitania” in Occitan and that is part of this company’s legacy.
Immortelle de Corse is a floral fragrance for women launched in 2011, which is dedicated to immortelle flowers, found in the island of Corsica. The opening of this scent contains Immortelle essential oil from Corsica; the mid development features accords of rose and black tie, while the extreme dry down combines Immortelle Absolute, benzoin, iris and musk. According to the official website, the immortelles used in the manufacturing process were sun-dried in the field and combined with honey. Immortelle de Corse smells unusual on the skin, yet pleasant and is perhaps the most interesting scent in the fragrance collection from L’Occitane entitled “Voyage en Méditerraneée”. The dominant notes are immortelle (obviously!), followed by honey and the black tea (which has an unexpected powerful lasting power).
The bottle of Immortelle de Corse is very elegant with transparent glass cut in straight lines that get curvy close to the stopper that has a silver color and goes fine with the amber color of the liquid. According to the official website, Immortelle de Corse is a “voluptuous fragrance”, “perfect for an aromatic Mediterranean voyage at any time of the year!” If you like flowers, I suggest testing Immortelle de Corse for a complete opinion on this scent.
