L’Occitane founder Olivier Baussan invited his good friend, pastry chef Pierre Hermé to create a collection of scents inspired by their experiences together at French island of Corsica. Genius!
"Our brand shares one important thing with Pierre — sincerity in our commitments, which explains our friendship and why it has gone on for so many years. It was a great experience to work with a master of taste like Pierre and create these compositions that one almost wants to meet, and we hope our audience loves them as much as we do," said Olivier Baussan.
While the fragrances were imagined by Pierre to represent the fresh and sweet summers of Corsica, Olivier and his team at L’Occitane brought them to life through the brand’s expertise and dedication. The result? Beautifully crafted fragrances, living memories of the lands of the Mediterranean and the 'Island of Beauty' so loved by both men.
Pierre Hermé spoke about his inspired collection: "My main aim with these products is to move away from the expected ingredients used in cooking, and create fragrances I liked. These products are a way for me to translate my memories of summers at Corsica into creations that everyone can enjoy."
The luxurious line consists of 3 exquisite collections with everything from perfume, hand creams, shower gels and body lotions.
