I love sorbets especially as an alternative to ice cream and there is nothing nicer than a bowl of cooling, refreshing sorbet on a hot, humid summers day! Another great way to enjoy a sorbet is in a glass with champagne or sparkling wine poured over....mmm...."delish".

Ok.. let's get onto the new "Limited Edition" fragrance collection from L'Occitane called Verbena Sorbet. Yummy it already sounds good enough to eat! "focus, mind back onto the article and off food..Hazel!"

For the past six years L'Occitane have launched an annual limited edition fragrance collection as an extension to their very popular unisex Verbena Range.
The green Verbena leaf is harvested in June and gives off a fresh lemony scent and around this time in the markets of Provence the scent from baskets of Verbena leaves fill the air and smells wonderful!
In summer the locals use the leaves to make herbal iced teas and refreshing sorbets and this was the inspiration for their 2012 Verbena Sorbet Collection.

I personally love fresh,citrus,refreshing fragrances and the new Verbena Sorbet is no exception, especially in the Durban heat and humidity of summer. Verbena Sorbet has a minty twist to the Verbena in that it contains spearmint and peppermint with a top note of green lemon and grapefruit and the base notes of musk.
This unisex range has just arrived in South Africa and consists of the following products:

  • Verbena Sorbet 100ml Edt spray (R495)
  • Verbena Sorbet Body Ice Gel 250mls (R325) Great in summer to keep in the fridge which will enhance the cooling effect on the skin.
  • Verbena Sorbet Exfoliating Shower Gel 200mls (R215) which contains lemon peel extracts which act as a gentle exfoliator.
