Apple Scented Opportunities, Nearly Missed

Last weekend in London I passed by a L'Occitane shop and got a fleeting glance of what looked like new products in the window. Could this be? Regular readers of this blog will know that as a diehard user of the Amande Shower Oil and other goodies, I watch this brand like a hawk. There couldn't possibly be something new I didn't know about.

But alas, there it was - the new Amande Pomme (Almond Apple) range, consisting of Velvet Concentrate, Sweet Peel, Cleansing Oil (for face!), and Toning Cider. I sampled, I sniffed, I stood there slackjawed.

Me: "This is new I have not seen it in the US how could this be I know EVERYTHING about L'Occitane but I have not seen this and the Amande range is my favorite and now it is even better with Apple and it SMELLS LIKE SPRING"

My travel companion: "Well do you want to get it?"

Me: "Huh?"

Travel companion: "DO YOU WANT TO GET IT?"

Me: "Oh! No. The prices in pounds are way too high. US dollar is weak!"


And then there was the moment when I realized that with my luck, these goodies probably weren't even available in the US yet. So upon returning home I quickly dashed off to the L'Occitane website in search of Amande Pomme. And couldn't find it. After reminding myself to breathe I got it together and did the obvious - used the search box! And there it was . For your convenience, my dears:

Almond Apple Velvet Concentrate

Almond Apple Sweet Peel

Almond Apple Toning Cider

Almond Apple Cleansing Oil

And if you buy the Sweet Peel, Cleansing Oil and Velvet Concentrate together, you'll save $16 and score a free mini Amande Shower Oil and mini Amande Delicious Paste.
