Scents of summer

Looking for a scent that will capture the last days of an Indian summer?

If so, L’Occitane Verbena EDT is your required fragrance.

A bright and dazzling Eau de toilette with verbena from Provence to awaken the body and mind.LO_V

This delicate and sparkling lemon scented fragrance draws its inspiration from Provençal markets, where the freshly picked green leaves of verbena fill the air with their refreshing and lemony scent. Extroverted notes of Mediterranean verbena mingle with a rosy base of geranium and lemon tree.

It’s light and bright, and is a scent you will come back to every summer.
