L'Occitane recently launched their first collection of eaux de colognes called the Eaux De Provence collection which is inpired by the Fountains of Provence.
"The classic citrus ingredients can be found in the top notes of all the L’OCCITANE colognes, smoothly followed by original heart and base notes, which reveal their distinct personalities. The soul of Provence shines through every one... There is rose and freesia for women; mint, basil and lavender for men; petit grain and geranium for both. Naturally, the fragrances conjure up childhood memories of Provence, the slow, relaxed pace of summer holidays, the irresistible smell of laundry that has dried in the sun, and that feeling of fresh, squeaky clean skin."

And now on to my Eau Captivante review:
First off, I'd like to say that these will make awesome presents this coming Christmas. Priced at P1750 for a 50ml bottle and P2950 for a 350ml bottle, while a 250 ml shower gel goes for P995, they are perfect to give to your parents, sisters, brothers, husbands, wives, etc.
The Eau Captivante 50ml bottle is sleek and slim making it the perfect size to carry around with you or leave in the glove compartment of your car.
The scent is super fresh. The type that makes you long for more. Not too overpowering or heady. It is perfect for our tropical climate and very easy to love. (It's not sticky either)
It's true what they say, it definitely makes you feel fresh out of the shower and once you personally catch a whiff of it, I guarantee, you won't be able to resist getting yourself a bottle. :)
So...bottomline, yes! This definitely gets my stamp of approval.
