Hello my lovelies!
Oh, it's been a busy week...
And on top of that, I'm either having a big headache or feeling tired as hell :(
Anyway, this post is not about whining...
This is a small gift I was given a couple of days ago and I thought I'd share it with you- it is a perfumed sachet by l'Occitane (insert cheesy french accent) with a soft lavender scent.
First of all, don't you just love ALL packagings of the l'Occitane products? Every single aspect of the brand is so meticulously studied to give off this vintage? french countryside? old pharmacy? je-ne-sais-quoi? ... just adorable feel.
This perfumed sachet is of no exception. My first impression was all about the packaging; I instantly fell in love with its cotton fabric, the beautiful typewriting- and of course, the smell of it! I was never expecting to love the actual contents inside the little bag...
It seems that it is tied in a knot and can be easily opened, but unfortunately it is all sewed up :( The ingredients are few and simple: recycled (!) plastic balls, lavender extract and fragrance. This "lavender extract" kind of tricked me; that until I placed the sachet under my desk lamp- through the light I could notice the clear plastic beads and this dark substance looking like chopped grass, turns out it is dehydrated lavender! To think that they actually put inside the sachet pure dehydrated lavender that there's no way of it being noticed by an unsuspicious eye... Gosh, l'Occitane is flirting with me again *flush*
Happy blogging and reading and commenting to everyone!
