Visted L'Occitane store for the first time. I've heard about their stuff for a while and was prepared to be let down like so many other "niche" (Creed, L'Artisan) I've encountered and tested. Sprayed Badian, Eau des Baux and 4 Voleurs on cards. Was immediately taken with Baux. Sprayed some on my skin and walked around the store. Original, striking and classy. First scent in a long time that didn't remind me of another scent. I can quite honestly say that this transported me to the Cypress trees of Provence and the warm, incensey chapels of southern France. The dawn of my enlightenment starts here! I bought it immediately without trying out a sample which is something I never do. And to boot, this stuff is cheap ($42 for 100ml!). Amazing deal when one considers L'Occitane's commitment to natural ingredients and the environment. Next I must try Badian and their namesake PH out.
