Today I am introducing to you one of my very favorite skincare line of products L'Occitane. The latest in their line of products is the fragrance - Fleur d’Or & Acacia; An out of the world olfactory experience, a perfume that is capable of creating more than just a memory. The perfume in the collection of Fleur d'Or  begins with, and maintains, an intense acacia-mimosa accord; and at first, this accord smells genuine. The lemon note in Fleur d’Or & Acacia’s opening serves as a momentary “booster” for the florals. After Fleur d’Or & Acacia’s authentic-smelling acacia-mimosa notes vanish, and that happens quickly, they are replaced by acacia-mimosa 'chemicals' that soar into space, and up through my nasal passages. Fleur d’Or & Acacia’s floral notes change from "pure" to modified; the effect is similar to finding a beautiful acorn or piece of driftwood and spray painting it gold with inexpensive enamel.

As Fleur d’Or & Acacia dries down, clean wood-musk comes forward, not quite reaching “laundry room” aromas but too clean for my taste. Overall, I would describe Fleur d’Or & Acacia as a flower syrup (sweetened with sugar/sterilized honey); it’s powerful, and, in the end, cloying. Fleur d’Or & Acacia is a hyper-feminine perfume; it has excellent sillage and unbelievable endurance. I would definitely recommend it to you all. It's amazing for this festive season and holidays.
