Stocking filler of the day: L'Occitane 'Marvellous Flowers' Roll-On EDT

You really cannot go wrong with gifting someone a Fragrance for Christmas. Why? Because who doesn't like smelling good and secondly when it's from L'Occitane, it's automatically more delicious and beautifully packaged to gear that excitement.

Due to its fun size, I thought this Roll-on EDT of L'Occitane's latest fragrance 'Marvellous Flowers' would be the perfect stocking filler for someone on a budget who doesn't want to fork out for a full size perfume but still wants to invest in a charming present.

The scent of it is primarily fruity, mildly flowery and very subtly musky and woody, mostly in the dry down part. It's a typical girly-girl fragrance without being sickly sweet.

I adore it's balanced mix of fruity and flowery notes dominated by red berries, pink grapefruit, rose and peony, which keep it soft yet fun and fresh at the same time. The added touch of white musk surely helps in toning down the sweetness by a notch or two. 

I personally am a fan of such vintage inspired glass packaging with a gold lid and the whole idea of delicately applying scent to chosen areas such as the wrist, collarbone and the neck is such a ritual in its own. A great addition to the hand bag and a reasonably lush stocking filler for under £15 I would say!

I'm disappointed that the perfume brands haven't made rollerball sizes readily available in the UK as they have in the USA. Really hope this changes soon.
