L'occitane by L'Occitane Cologne. Launched in 2005, L’Occitane is a fresh and herbal fragrance for men that exudes masculine sophistication and
elegance. The opening notes combine light lavender with spicy black pepper. The heart combines warm notes of nutmeg and cinnamon, and the closing accords consist of woodsy tones, fresh musk and tonka bean.
L’Occitane En Provence is a notable cosmetics brand launched by 23-year-old Olivier Baussan in 1976. This ambitious young entrepreneur first began
his career at local markets selling homemade essential oil from harvested wild rosemary. He expanded his prospects by opening a boutique a few years later. Baussan eventually began producing vegetable-based soaps, and in the 1990s, he partnered with Reinold Geiger to expand the company into the international market. There are now shops in over 80 countries. With this expansion came the inclusion of additional body care products and fragrances, and there are more than 150 unique scents in the company’s catalogue today.
