 L'Occitane hand creams & fragrances gift collection - Inflight duty free exclusives

One of the things I discovered from flying to/from Asia is the amazing selection from each airline's duty free catalog!  And some of the offerings are exclusive to in-flight shopping only and that makes it even more of a special treat. 

This beautiful L'Occitane gift set is a perfect example.  It is exclusive to Dragon Air in-flight duty free catalog.

The set includes three of L'Occitane's popular scents: Roses et Reines, Cherry Blossom, and Verbena (left to right).  Each collection has a pairing of hand cream and eau de toilette and comes with a matching pouch that is exclusive to this set.

rose et reines

 L'Occitane inflight duty free exclusives - Rose et Reines collection

If you have read my post on Diptyque, you know I'm addicted to the rose scent.  Naturally, the Rose et Reines is my favorite of the 3 in this gift set. 

L'Occitane uses a proprietary process where rose petals from Grasse, Bulgaria, Morocco, Turkey and Provence are steeped in oil and become saturated with the natural fragrance of the roses.  I probably wouldn't use the hand cream and eau de toilette at the same time as it is quite a powerful fruity scent, but individually, they are just lovely additions to any outfit.

The hand cream also doubles as a nail cream.  It contains shea butter and Vitamin E which helps soften the skin while it strengthens the nails.  I think this will become a regular in my in-flight pampering kit!

Individual items are available -

Hand Cream 1.0 0z USD $12.00 (Also comes in 2.5 oz for $22.00)

Eau de Toilette 2.5 oz USD $55.00


cherry blossom

 L'Occitane inflight duty free exclusives - Cherry Blossom collection

The Cherry Blossom is a lighter scent.  Cherry Blossoms bloom in the spring and this scent carries that refreshing and rejuvenating feeling as we welcome spring after a long cold winter.

The star ingredient is a cherry extract from the Luberon region of Provence, France.  "It is because cherry blossoms fly away in the first breeze of spring that they are so rare and precious," says Olivier Baussan, L'Occitane founder.  I can't agree more - Cherry Blossom is one of my favorite flowers as they are so pretty and delicate.  I think that's why I love the pouch so much and have been using it to carry my phone whenever I'm running errands in the neighborhood.

Individual items are available -

Hand Cream 1.0 oz USD $12.00 (Also comes in 2.6 oz for $22.00)

Eau de Toilette 2.5 oz USD $55.00

Voyage Set USD $28.00 (This is a great value set!)


Verbena

 L'Occitane inflight duty free exclusives - Verbena collection

The green verbena leaf is the star of this collection - It grows in abundance in Provence, France and gives out this lemony fragrance that wakes up all your senses.  In this collection, the eau de toilette has a much more powerful verbena lemony scent than the hand cream, so it's also ok to use both at the same time as you pamper yourself. 

What's unique about the Verbena hand cream is that it gives you this cooling sensation upon application.  A blend of organic verbena extract and tapioca powder helps soothe and absorb, leaving hands dry and cooled.  I think this is perfect for those hot summer days

Individual items are available -

Hand Cream 1.0 oz USD $12.00 (Also comes in 2.6 oz for $22.00)

Eau de Toilette 3.3 oz USD $58.00

Holiday Bauble Set USD $14.00 (Another great value set, but minus the eau de toilette)


I can't wait to fly to Asia again and get my hands on some exclusive beauty goodies!  Besides the shopping, I also love the great hospitality by flight crew on these Asian airlines.  They treat everyone with a great smile and, more importantly, with respect.  Something the U.S.-based airlines should learn to do.

What's your favorite L'Occitane goodie? Do share with me!

 

Thanks for stopping by!
