Loccitane-Cherry-Blossom-Hand-Cream-Lotion8In the south of France in 1976, Olivier Baussan began to distill rosemary essential oil to sell in the local markets of Provence. Using an old soap factory, he revived the traditional art of Marseille soap-making and unknowingly launched a global brand. Fifteen years later, Baussan’s first L’OCCITANE boutique opened in Paris on Rue Vavin.Today, there are shops in more than 90 countries and this weekend, L’OCCITANE en Provence opens on Newport’s Long Wharf.

The shop carries multiple L’OCCITANE-crafted collections for men and women including skin care, fragrance, bath and body, haircare and gifts made with natural botanicals including their Signature Shea Butter Hand Cream and Immortelle anti-aging skincare products.Though it would be fabulous to jet off to Paris on a whim, right now most of us  will have to settle for exploring this store and celebrating it’s charming storefront, signature red tiled floor, wrought iron and raw wood furniture,and signature  yellow, orange and blue colors.

Visit L’OCCITANE en Provence  on Long Wharf today! Au revoir!
