Fleur d’Or & Acacia Fragrance Reviews

Ms. Sippi
Ms. Sippi

@Papavero0<:

L'Occitane in Norway was NEVER informed by the head office that they were going to discontinue it! The staff didn`t know, and people higher up than the clerk at the counter did not know.
I am on the mailinglist of L'Occitane and I can just say straight off the bat that L'Occitane will NEVER inform anyone that they are going to remove scents. So it may very well be available in Australia, but that doesn`t help me here in Norway. And how long is it going to be available over there when it is gone all throughout Europe??

Also - I have just found out that they now have removed my #2 fave of mine - Néroli & Orchidée too! And that the same thing has happened aaaall over again - it has vanished and no one is informed and has no clue whatsoever. Just that it is gone altogether.

I have now found out after all this that L`Occitane actually behaves just like Apple - they don`t answer to anyone, keep everything hush-hush and gives no comment and does not give or anyone else any info when asking. Going higher up - all I get is crickets.

I am so over L`Occitane now, that I can`t even begin to say how much. They are not getting any more of my money, I don`t care how lovely they scents may be. They can simply not be trusted.

I could forgive them if they at least - the very least informed their customers that they had to stop making this or that scent because of whatever reason. That is just fine! Bad sales, ingrediens discontined etc? That can happen! But no info so a person can obtain a bottle or two before it is sold out everywhere?

Because L`Occitane should know that their customers signature scent isn`t just something we put on because we are indifferent to what we wear, it is because we are NOT indifferent.
If they think discontinueing scents to lure people into trying other and newer scents is working, then I have to say that that is a tactic that drives me AWAY, and run for the hills. Escada does it too - and away I go! My loyalty towards companies like that disappears like a feather in the storm.
At least respect those who support the company.

Bye L`Occitane - the computer says NO...

I'm crazy about black locust, I mean the fresh flowers of the tree (I even have a tattoo of it on my neck, so I'm serious) and when I saw this smell on the display I knew I was going to like it. I've finished 3 bottles of this and still use one. I love how fresh and natural it smells, but oh I hate that it wears off so, so quickly! I have been looking for a perfume with strong black locust smell and by far this is the only one that I believe really gives you the fresh and sweet smell of black locust, but it doesn't last even half an hour, and I'm really sad about it. That's why I keep a bottle of it on my table just to spray and smell from time to time to get lovely black locust smell.

L'Occitane Australia still carry it and there's no word here that they'll discontinue this. Maybe you can order it from another EU L'occitane website?

I can not believe it! They have discontinued this now. I live in Norway, it is not possible to get it anymore, I assume the same goes for everyone else. I have had this before, it was my #1 go-to summer scent. On me it was easy to wear, with soft golden undertones, clean, feminine, never cloying, teensy-tiny bit powdery but just enough to keep it mellow and not too sharp. It had some golden undertones that fit my chemistry just perfect for summer. And the compliments I always got when I wore this one, they were plentyfull.

Went on ebay, and the prices for a bottle is through the roof. Yeah, never gonna happen...

Now, what to get next, that lifted my spirit like this one did...?
Anyone have a suggestion?

I adore this fragrance as much as J'Adore EDT. It's light and fresh but always makes me feel special. It's a great alternative to Diptique's Olene. If you like floral scents, you'll love this one.

Finally, I've found the fragrance that can replace my old flame: Kenzo Summer. I was really upset when it was discontinued. This is a sweeter, non-almond version of Kenzo Summer. Kenzo Summer was the perfect blend of almonds and mimosas while this one is the perfect blend of acacia flowers and mimosas.

The final result is sweet positive energy under a heart warming autumn sun composed of yellow florals. Citrusy notes also freshen the honeyed sweetness of the flowers. Perfect for everyday office wear.. It's sillage is also okay with a medium longevity.

A must try for all the mimosa lovers who like clean, powdery, romantic fragrances.

This scent is great for people who do not like very strong fragrances. It is a more natural fragrance. It's sweet and flowery, but it's not overwhelming, it doesn't cause a headache.

The mimosa is very well blended with the citrusy tones. The longevity is 2-4 hours. Overall, I like it a lot and highly recommend it, especially to women in their 20s.

This smells really pretty. It's a mimosa perfume you can use all year round. It's so inoffensive you can wear on every occasion. Hope L'Occitane won't ever discontinue this gem.

Very white floral, smells very similar to the whole de grasses collection. Wore it today, it reminded me quite a bit of the body shop's moringa, except I liked this much better. Quite a high pitched, sweet scent but not in a sickly way. Light & feminine, certainly very pleasant. Longevity was not amazing however, sillage was quite good. Over all not my favourite frag. like I said, all the L'Occitane frags have a similar sort of vibe- it was hard to tell the difference between this & jasmin bergamote & neroli et orchidee. Only have it because it came in a 4x7.5mL gift set for $15!! at l'occitane in Auckland (I'm in NZ).

Overall, very pleasant, give it a 6.5 out of 10. & I am a tough one to please.

Because of this I have discovered my love for mimosas! What a wonderful flower!

Obviously I love this fragrance. To me it has become the scent of summer 2015. It smells so optimistic and summery, it`s almost like the fragrance itself is smiling when you put it on. It is very versatile, and you can pretty much get away with this anywhere. A good daytime fragrance, if you`re looking for something inoffensive, but still a bit unique.

I rarely repurchase fragrances, but when it comes to this one I definently will! Please don`t ever discontinue it, L`Occitane.

A fresh sweet floral smell..soft and very lightly sweet, reminds me of honey right off the flowers I used to taste when I was a kid..nice and light and suitable for spring or even summer. I like it.

This is a radiant yellow floral, full of air and light. To me it feels more like a body spray than a perfume. I asked someone to sniff my arm 15 minutes after applying it and he said, "body lotion, isn't it?". It is an informal but pretty fragrance, good for any occassion when you want to smell fresh and nice, from family dinner to a day-long hike.

I am deeply in love with mimosa. It has good longevity on me, and sweet, honey-like scent. Mimosa stays long enough and I can smell it hours after I sprayed it on me. I wish they make smaller versions of this perfume. 75 ml is a little too much, as the only option.

I tried this one today because I missed it. I'm ok with this line, I like the scents but don't love them all.
I like Fleur d'Or & Acacia better than others. It smells clean, feminine, bright.
It's a luminous yellow floral with a delicate touch and very well balanced citrus opening.
Mimosa is not cloying and doesn't give me a headache as per 90% perfumes with mimosa.
The genet should be a plant, but I have no idea how it smells like. The Woody and musky notes are not so remarkable.
I think this is an easy to wear floral for spring and summer.

Bright acacia honey scent in the bottle!

I love love love this scent. Even it quite like Honeymania from Body shop but it has better quality smell. I mean L'occitane has bright scent while Honeymania is sharp for my nose. The Mimosa in here is very lovely. If you like fragrance e.g. Yellow Diamond, Annick Mimosa, Yves Rocher mimosa etc., then GO GET IT!!

A very pleasant, noble, natural essence floral in best traditions of Grasse. Mimose and white acacia, and an impression of neroli. Not a single disturbing note. Beautiful, a pure well-being. Bravo L'Occitane.

It would be very lovely scent if my skin wouldn't consume it within 15 minutes. It's beautiful way to show mimose on a light lemon base. Shame it didn't want to stay with me longer.

I discovered this by accident... I usally stay away from L'Occitane because every time I begin to fall in love with one of their scents it gets discontinued =( I was looking around for a good wedding perfume the other day, something for a countryside summer wedding that wasn't overly soapy/white floral. I went into the local L'Occitane store just to have a look at the range, when the assistant sprayed some on my wrist. I then spent three hours sampling a million and one different scents, nothing really standing out to me and getting more and more disheartened... until I accidentally caught a whiff of my wrist just before bed. Oh my god. Instant love.

When I first smelled it in store I was a little unsure, as it seemed quite a sweet floral, and these have a tendency to become quite cloying on me, particularly in warm weather. However, by the time I got to the drydown, it was a slightly sweet but fresh and simultaneously powdery acacia scent, a bit of a mixed bag really! The next day I went out and bought a whole bottle and have just been thoroughly enjoying getting whiffs of it over the last 2 days.

Note: Went to L'Occitane today and asked about whether this would be discontinued too... nope! Because it's part of their new range featuring an in-house perfumer, they believe the Collection de Grasse range will remain permanent =) Woohoo! I finally found my perfect wedding scent!

This is a lovely, soft honeysweet mimose scent. I don't detect any of the other notes really.
Light and airy, really nice spring scent.

Too powdery! At first you confront a blast of yellow flowers, which is very realistic, but won't stay with you for too long. After 15-20 minutes, the dry out just gets weird and one does not find any "acacia" or "fleu d'or" around; instead, a burst of old baby powder that you forgot you had on the deepest darkest spot of your bathroom cabinet. And, just to put the cherry on the top of the cake, it has amazing sillage and longevity, which resulted in a terrible headache.

It is a very elegant gold flower EDT : the combination of bergamot/citrus and mimosa is just wonderful, very soft and restrained maybe, but I love it a lot. I love mimosa, it is such an under-estimated flower compared to much louder soniflores like rose, jasmin and tuberose.
I do agree that sillage is maybe not that strong, it is an EDT version and you need to spray generously in order to capture the fragrance. Since I like layering, I tried it with the other beauty of Occitane : the older "Ambre" version (not the latest Amber Santal) and I can tell you the combination of these 2 is marvelous : you get a sparkling version of "Ambre", a bit lighter and more floral. I should try to combine it with the latest Amber Santal because unfortunately they discontinue the older Ambre version.

Hello,
There is an acacia in the garden of my parents' house (I was born in Eastern France, in the Alps) and I can assure you that the smell is the same as the tree when it bloomed. This perfume reminds me of my childhood. The scent is not chemical or alcohol, and it lasts on my skin. If it smells the alcohol is because it's outdated.
(Sorry for my very bad english).

I've smelled some faint and timid scents before, but this one takes first prize! My wife could barely smell anything and neither could I. It barely has a scent.

Essentially - this is perfumer's alcohol. That's it.

Okay, perfume industry: are you done atoning for the 70's and 80's yet? Can we go back to fragrances which actually have some smell, longevity and sillage again?

I thought it smelt like powdery yellow florals (specifically, blossoms), honey (similar to TBS's Honeymania) and sweet, newly sliced pears. A pale, golden colour scent that's rich and warm.

It's okay, and probably perfect for a cold wintry christmas.

Mhmmm, I like this one a lot. And my mum would have loved it too (as littlepepperz wrote too :-))This is going to be my office scent. I sprayed it on last evening and can still smell it now after more than 10 hours. Not in an owerpowering way but very soft and gentle. I can't stop sniffing my wrist ;-)

Bright amorphous floral. This reaches past unremarkable on the worthwhile scale, and registers around the "abstracted into oblivion" mark. Despite its ambiguous nature, (uh, which flowers are supposed to be in there again?!) there's an astringent quality to the floral aspect that makes me wary of recommending it to the allergy-prone. It almost as a jasminy, aquatic kind of freshness, which translates as not-so-fresh on me.

I love the masculine (unisex) Cedar & Orange counterpart to this duo, especially when my boyfriend wears it, but Fleur d'Or & Acacia leaves me seriously disappointed. If it was twice the potency it would be a scrubber, but it's not and the longevity sucks so I didn't bother.

Just tested it today. A bright, yellow floral. My mother would have liked it for sure :)

Do you know what white acacia blossoms smell like? If you like that scent - you will like this. I kind of enjoyed it that this little fume has restored that memory for me: the smell of early June air in the south of central Europe, where white acacia blossoms were dancing in the wind.
Not enough to keep me interested for much longer - the drydown is a pure mimosa-shampoo-like scent. There was a strong indication of a headache approaching.
I would say that this would make a safe gift (for someone who's not a perfume freak!).

Tried this out in the store today, it's an amazing golden floral, very apt name. It opens with the most realistic wildflower honey note I've smelled in a perfume thus far, sweet and rich, melting into a mess of yellow mimosa pollen and acacia petals, complemented with the smell of cut hay. This stage smells like pure sunlight and it's absolutely gorgeous. I think L'occitane always did good honey scents but this is definitely my favourite of them all.

The dry-down isn't as beautiful, remnants of wood and dried honeycomb, but the first two stages are so lovely a full bottle might just sneak into my collection. ;)

Just received a little envelope in the mail with a sample of this from L'Occitane. Underneath the foil packet of EdT it has the notes: Top Notes lemon and Bergamot, Heart of Broom, Mimosa and Acacia, and Base of White Woods and Musk. So Castellot and Casaque are correct!
Thus far I get the mimosa, not that much citrus in the opening.

Although the animal, genet, can be used in perfumery..I think in this case, Fragrantica have it wrong and I suspect it is genêt, a plant, not the mammal. Grown in Provence, related to broom, it is described as hay-like and smelling like bee propolis. I believe this fragrance is more likely to have genêt in it than genet ;)

Genet is probably the same idea as civet. A natural by product of the Genet glands located near the anus of the animal.

Think cat spray ... although the Genet and Civet are not really cats.
