I've got quite a few perfumes in my collection, and even managed to review a fair few of them on here. I'm in love with a good fragrance so jumped at the chance to review one from L'Occitane's first cologne collection! Inspired by the citrusy freshness of the En Provence region, the range is made up of scents meant for women and men. I was immediately intrigued as I've never tried a cologne meant for women, but also the range contains three fragrances, one for women, one for men and one unisex! I love the idea of trying a unisex scent so was over the moon to be sent Eau Universelle*!
Described as invigorating and sunny, a whirlwind of freshness with a citrus accord of Mediterranean grapefruit and bergamot essential oils to seduce most men and women, I have to agree that this cologne is perfect for summer. This scent seriously reminds me of something, and I'm going to be really annoying and say I can't remember what! Though whatever it is, it's really lovely and brings back some good memories of holidays! I do think that the Eau Universelle aromas are a great mix of masculine and feminine, and although anyone who has read any of my previous perfume reviews will know that I usually go for typically sweet and girly fragrances, I love that the amber and woody notes give it that extra depth. Running this by Chris however, he doesn't agree - to my great annoyance - declaring Eau Universelle as just 'too fruity' to be something that he would wear. Oh well.
I also love the art deco inspired glass bottle, this is the 50ml and looks very classy in my opinion. With a spritz cap and billed as perfect for travelling, Eau Universelle will definitely be accompanying me on my France - Italy road trip in two weeks time!
Does the idea of a unisex cologne appeal to you? Let me know if you've ever tried anything other L'Occitane fragrance.
