L’Occitan (“The man from Occitania”) is a men's fragrance which was conceived by L’Occitane founder Olivier Baussan while he was distilling lavender essential oil on a river bank. The fragrant lavender water drenched the burning branches and wood in the furnace and the result was a warm and masculine fragrance - the essence of the historical land of Occitania.
The L’Occitan range celebrates classic Provence and its men. The intense blue of the fields of lavender, the red soil of Roussillon, the sun that tans the skin, the siesta in the shade of the olive trees. Products in this range include shaving gels, and after shave balm. The very rawness of the scents of Provence are reflected in our L'Occitan collection.
