    It's L'Occitane, L'Occitan is one of their fragrances (which you mentioned).

    L'Occitan is a very nice peppery lavender. Reasonably long lasting, albeit discrete.

    Eau des Baux is a good vanilla, cypress, scent, some say Christmas-sy. It used to be quite strong and long lasting, but recent 'batches' might not be as much.

    Cade is also very nice - a woody, greenish, smoky, thing - but I wouldn't call it long lasting (or loud). It has a full shaving kit.

    I'm not familiar with 'iprie'.

    Anyway, I think they are all worth trying. They have a 'natural' vibe about them.

    I do not, either this re-release or the original. The notes look very good though. Thanks.

    I own Cade and very much enjoy it. My daily wood scent.

    Recommending (based on personal and subjective tastes/preferences alone) particularly Eau des Baux, L'Occitan, Eau de Vetyver among the ones already owned within the personal wardrobe, Cade, Verdon, Cedrat, Ambre & Santal and most of the limited edition Pierre Herme collection, particularly Rhubarbe Pamplemousse, among the ones only tested but not yet owned to this point

    I have Eau Des Baux and Cedrat Edt and enjoy the smell of both. Unfortunately for me neither one lasts very long so I need to refresh a few times during the day to continue my enjoyment.

    I sampled a few, but Eau des Baux is the only one I like. Eau des Baux is really good though.

    I really enjoy Eau De Baux in cooler weather. I get pretty good lasting power out of it.

    Definitely worth a try.
    Eau des Baux is great!
    Cade is one I only have tried as a body wash scent. Pleasant though
    (eau de) L'Occitan bored me.

    Eau des Baux is plain awesome.

    L'Occitane EDT is very good..

    And so is Cade. In case of the latter, however, I've always thought that other products from the line (and especially the shower gel and aftershave balm) are much better, scent-wise. Unfortunately, Cade shower gel is now discontinued :/

    I agree, excellent value for the money.

    I own three

    Eau Des Baux, Eau De Cade, and Eau de Vetyver. I don't wear them often, but I use the Cade shave soap all the time.

    In order of personal preference, I would recommend Bavx, Cedre & Oranger (discontinued), Cade, L'Occitan and Eau de Cedrat. The shower gels of Bavx and Cade are getting hard to come by.

    Eau d'Iparie is beautiful, a strong performing patchouli, rose and myrrh scent. A favourite of my mother, too.

    Eau des Baux is really nice, longevity however is nothing short of abysmal which is a shame.

    These are all good. Vetyver sadly discontinued, otherwise I would buy a bottle for sure. I need to get some L'Occitane (of some sort) soon - good quality, good value. I don't even work for them!

    Cade is my favorite of the ones out. I know everyone loves Eau des Baux, and it is not bad at all, but I don't get some of the connections others get and it dries way sweeter than some others like Burberry London, etc. Cade is a great mix of wood and spices!
