Another day, another perfume review! After my decisive reaction to Thierry Mugler's Womanity, I'm pleased to say this review is definitely more positive.
L'Occitane is releasing a new limited edition Eau de Toilette called Verveine Sorbet for the summer, which will be available around mid July 2012. This is a new and fresh spin on their existing Lemon Verveine scent. In combination, they are also releasing a shower gel, a body lotion, a refreshing mist, and a lipgloss.
I'm not sure what the exact differences is from the original, but to me it smells like a more complex and even fresher spin on it. This scent is extremely fresh, citrusy, and light. The notes are grapefruit, lime, mint, and lemon verveine.
This scent is so up my alley! I absolutely love it. The accompanying body lotion has a slightly cooling effect, which is so great for the summer. I love citrusy scents, and this one has enough complexity to be interesting and unique, without being too opulent and a mish-mash of everything thrown together. I love the simplicity of it - extremely fresh and light!
The only downside I see is that the scent is not very long lasting. After a few hours, the scent is gone. Using it in combination with the body lotion helps, but I wish it had more longevity because I love how it smells. If you did want it to last all day, expect to reapply it at least a few times.
