Created ten years ago, the Rose 4 Reines range has now become Roses et Reines, a collection infused rose extract derived through enfleurage, a traditional process made by the L’Occitane research team. The freshest of rose petals are steeped in oil, allowing it to become saturated with the natural fragrance of the rose, resulting in a fruitier scent.
L’Occitane Botanical Expertise Laboratory has developed a variation on the enfleurage technique and has filed a patent for its new scent-extraction method with four varieties of roses. Their favorite roses – the Grasse rose, Bulgarian rose, Moroccan rose and Turkish rose ̶ are brought together in this precious scent, enhanced by a unique rose extract from Haute-Provence.
The Roses et Reines collection includes the Eau de Toilette, opened with the citrus freshness of bergamot and blackcurrant leaves with intense floral notes and a woody base, the Beautifying Body Milk, infused with rosehip oil, the Hand and Nail Cream, enhanced with shea butter and Vitamin E and finally the Bath Salts enriched with rose water.
The Roses et Reines collection is priced from $12 to $50 and will be available in all L’Occitane boutiques as of September 2014.
