There are pleasant moments of discovery: a vintage fragrance at the thrift store, a twenty dollar bill in the coat pocket, and a home scent that lasts well without a product being burned, melted or crushed. A tin of L'Occitane Solid Home Perfume does just that as the little white cubes infuse the air beautifully and perceptibly. It is a pleasure to come home and be greeted by a wonderful scent.
Candied Fruit is inspired by a Provencal dessert. A honeyed sweetness bears traces of dried figs, apricots and vanilla. The luscious composition is drizzled with chocolate and dusted with patchouli. The scent is not unlike Thierry Mugler’s Angel, however it is more honeyed, with a rich plummy note. While I admire Angel, I rarely wear it for the fear of it being too strong. Candied Fruit has none of that suffocating headiness, and in the air, it is a scent of freshly baked honey pastries and caramel sauce.
Unlike a bowl of potpourri, each little cube can be discretely hidden away, its presence only known through the lovely rich fragrance. Moreover, the metal tin is quite sensible for transportation. In addition, L’Occitane offers a beautiful pomander, which fans out revealing compartments for Perfume Cubes.
A $14.00 tin of L'Occitane Candied Fruit Solid Home Perfume contains 4 cubes.
