Meet the Family - L'Occitane

At The Perfumer, we’ve been careful in selecting only the finest products to fly off our shelves. In this short series, we’re going to introduce you to our favourite products, and the brands who we collaborate with in order to bring them to you. In no particular order (other than alphabetical!), it’s time to get acquainted with our extended family. 


In the markets of Provence, a 23 year old named Olivier Baussan began to distill rosemary oil to sell to the local community. Seeing success, he went from oils to soaps to creams, drawing inspiration from the natural world he grew up on. The observation of nature continues to guide L’Occitane’s research, with their own state-of-the-art research lab in the heart of Haute-Provence. 

Dedicated to preserving the natural environment, L’Occitane works directly with French farmers to ensure that the ingredients used in their formulations are of the highest quality, sourced as sustainably as possible.

L’Occitane Relaxing Pillow Mist
