The Blogger and The Sea
This scent is part of the Voyage En Mediterranean collection at L'Occitane. The collection pairs a specific note with a destination in the Mediterranean from Tuscany to Corsica. Each package features a unique wind rose. This was a graphic tool that was used by sailors to help guide them on their travels. Sailors believed that the wind rose had special powers and protected them on their voyages.
The Labdanam fragrance is a stunning amber. It opens with honeyed citrus fruits and spices. The drydown is amber heaven with a dash of vanilla sprinkled in. The amber note is not as hardcore as Paul & Joe's Bleu or as dirty as Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan. Labdanam has a lighter feel. More sweet and pine-like.
