l'occitane cerisier rouge


Now this is a brand you don’t see often on Bellachique. There is no real reason why though because they do have some really nice products. However I’m easily distracted by all the pretty make-up and tend to get carried away. Now just in time for that romantic period also known as Valentine we have the Red Cherry and Cherry Blossom collection for you. It’s great for Spring and is is fruity, sweet and delicious!


l'occitane red cherry eau de toilette


I’ll start with the Eau de Toilette in Red Cherry. This is an Eau Intense, so it’s a bit stronger than the regular EDT.  A bottle contains 50 ml. The design is pretty and sweet. We see a floral pattern on the bottle and the bottle itself is red. The scent is inspired by cherry blossoms at night. Romantic but sensual.

Red Cherry opens with a sweet fruity note. You can clearly smell the cherry blossom. It then tones a bit more down and goes more to a floral note with a hint white musk. If you love sweet and fruity scents then you will love this! I personally love scents with cherry blossom as a note, and they did a good job withRed Cherry. Top notes are citrus, orange and black berries. Heart notes are wild lily, cherry and raspberry. The base is white musk,heliotrope and olive wood. I personally couldn’t detect anything of the citrus and orange notes because it’s pretty much full-on fruity on me. The strongest notes were definitely raspberry, cherry, black berry and the white musk. It’s not too heavy and it lingers till the evening.


l'occitane red cherry hand cream


Next we have the hand cream. We get a pretty silver tube with the cherry blossom pattern. The cream itself contains 30 ml of product. The hand cream comes with the same scent as Red Cherry but with a lighter note and less fruity. Interesting is that it contains shimmer. It’s not super obvious but I guess they wanted to add a glamour factor here. The hand cream is very light in texture, it’s milky and sinks away into the skin right away. It’s perfect for people who want a veil of hand cream but if you want some serious moisturising this might be too lightweight.


l'occitane fleur de cerisier petal soft cream


Lastly we have the Cherry Blossom Petal Soft Cream. It comes in a tin of 100 ml and you can basically use it all over the body. The scent of Cherry Blossom is a lot lighter, more floral and even a touch of green. The cream itself is a light cream. It feels a bit thicker on the skin at first but it melts into the skin leaving it refreshed and  hydrated. Again this is not the cream you want to use for heavy maintenance, it’s just adds a touch of hydration and a veil of cherry blossom scent.  When used over the body you get a fresh girly and flirty scent.

I’m suddenly in the mood for a bowl of cherries topped with whipped cream, aren’t you? 😉
