In her wake, this woman leaves a distinct trace of her presence. You can still hear the whisper of fabrics, still smell the lingering trail of a new fragrance. Three floral notes, each one like a trait of her character, fuse together: the fiery temperament of saffron, the grace of rose, the mystery of violet.
The head notes bring bursts of colour and joie de vivre. Radiant and precious, the saffron flower in full bloom introduces its sensual, peppery and spicy notes.
Elegant and difficult to subdue, the Grasse rose at the heart of the scent is enhanced by a few sprigs of lily of the valley. While violet goes slightly astray, settling into enveloping, sensorial white wood.
There is so much more to this woman from the South than the ties she shares with L’OCCITANE. Her very character, rooted in the ground, in the stonework of Arles, is what spurred the desire of L’OCCITANE and the creation of this fragrance – signature of the perfumer in Provence.
The Arlésienne is like no other. She arouses creativity and inspires artists (Van Gogh, Picasso, Léo Lelée, Mistral, Bizet...). She is the silent, markedly absent heroine of a play by Daudet in three acts, in which she is constantly referred to, yet never appears.
