What scents bring back happy memories for you? When I was growing up, my mom and aunt used L’Occitane products, and the verbena and almond aromas still feel transporting. Here’s more about them (and a discount code)…

L’Occitane (pronounced LOX-EE-TAHN) began in the markets of Provence, where a 23-year-old plant enthusiast named Olivier sold his own rosemary oil from a small truck. Eventually, he expanded his offerings to include soaps and creams — drawing inspiration from the scents, ingredients and beauty of the South of France.

Forty years later, L’Occitane offers bath, skin and body care, plus beautiful gift sets. I especially love the Verbena Trio, featuring the Verbena Shower Gel, Verbena Body Lotion and the Verbena Cooling Hand Cream Gel.

Wouldn’t L’Occitane make a great Mothers’ Day gift? (The shea butter and almond smell sooooo good.)

Bonus for all readers: L’Occitane is offering 10% off any order with code COJ10, good until Wednesday. (I’m the biggest fan of this little guy.)
