L’Occitane Cerisier Princesse “Cherry Princess” Eau De Toilette
Cherry blossoms notoriously emerge in March and April, yet this year they seem to have arrived a bit early in the form of a new fragrance introduced by none other than the highly esteemed L’Occitane En Provence: L’Occitane Cerisier Princesse “Cherry Princess” Eau De Toilette ($40).
Per L’Occitane, “there once was a princess with a beautiful porcelain complexion. She would blush in response to any compliment, her cheeks taking on the color of ripe, mouth-watering cherries.” The story goes on, but the message is clear, this limited edition product is inspired by the stuff that makes up fairy tales. You know, cherries…
Cherry Princess may be a cringe-worthy name, but consumers can be grateful that the scent itself does not come on nearly as strong. Tinged with notes of cherry extract derived from Luberon, Provence, Cherry Princess is an olfactory callback to classic perfume comprised of a gentle mix of floral and fruity tones. Cherry Princess is also available in a wide-ranging line of products, including hand cream, body gel, solid perfume, shower cream, and soap.
I would not recommend Cherry Princess for those who prefer patchouli – or otherwise-more-heavily-infused fragrances. I would recommend it to anyone seeking a speedier return of spring.
