The peony is a famous flower that grows naturally around the Mediterranean Basin. Long before it became famous as an ornamental plant, as far back as Antiquity, the peony was a renowned medicinal plant. Every spring, it offers a dazzling carnival of colors and scents. This flower with a thousand petals inspired the new fragrance and makeup collection from L’OCCITANE.


To understand the fragrant secrets of this flower, L’OCCITANE established an exclusive partnership with a nurseryman, Jean-Luc Riviere – a man with a passion for peonies, whose family has been devoted to breeding and cultivating them for 160 years in the Drôme region of France. Following Mr Riviere’s advice, L’OCCITANE developed a natural extract of peony root, which perfumes all peony products.
