Update: see a review of L'Occitane Immortelle de Corse.
Who else skim read the name as Immortelle de Corpse? :O
Yes … glad I’m not alone. Lol.
LOL! Appropriate for October, I guess
Though, if it were truly called Immortelle de Corpse I’d have to buy it unsniffed for the name alone. But then it’d need to smell like Avignon or something similar.
LOL…cannot picture that fragrance ever coming out of L’Occitane, but you never know!
Perfume of the Living Dead!
I always associate immortelle with French funerals — surprised Occitane’s home customer based isn’t creeped out.
I read it as corpse too.
I’ll have to look for this. I really like Labdanum de Seville which is part of this line (and in the same bottle). I generally like immortelle.
Is benzoin becoming the new oud or pink pepper? It seems that it is being prominently featured this season. Maybe I’m just imagining things because I keep reading about the “overdose” of benzoin in Candy.
I don’t know…not sure I pay enough attention to tell. Seems like it’s always been popular, but maybe it’s being used more.
Hi Robin. I bought this a few weeks ago. On me, it is a very, very sweet honey and amber, very similar to their older honey perfume. It lasts through showers, for days. It’s a soft scent, and for being such a soft scent, it’s lasting power is truly incredible. I’m not too big a fan of honey scents, but for those of us who are, it’s certainly one to try.
I’m one of those honey fans, so thanks for the heads up! I’ll have to get out and try this.
Oh, very good to know — thanks!
MelissaJane, this honey (and amber!) fan thanks you for your comment. I’ll definitely have to sniff this one.
The Corsican landscape has more than one sun? Kind of like the planet Tatooine?
Oooh, way to work that Star Wars reference!
I like L’Occitane’s products, though their scents have been hit and miss with me. I’ll have to try this one and hope for the former!
