A good mens cologne sets the tone for everything in a relationship. Okay… That was a little extra. But seriously, if my husband and I decide to get dressed up and go out on a date (with or without the kids) and he puts on his “smell good” and steps into the room I am completely taken over. The L’Occitane Mer & Mistral fragrance is UH-MAZE-ING. I typically enjoy ocean-y scents for myself and men’s fragrances. This one definitely smells like that to me. And Mer in French actually means “the sea” so I am going with it. ha
L’Occitane Mer & Mistral
Bursting with notes of zesty lemon and sweet mandarin in combination with a fine blend of rosemary, pine and cypress, this fresh fragrance collection is the perfect gift for the dad who loves a lightweight, clean and invigorating scent.
This gift set comes with a cologne, Fresh Shower Gel, and Fresh Body Gel. The Fresh Body Gel is is a light gel-lotion that sinks into the skin quickly and doesn’t leave your skin feeling wet. I personally like sets that include this type of trio because when you layer scents it actually guarantees the longevity of the scent hanging around.
The packaging of the bottles is very simple and understated. I like that the fragrance speaks for itself and I am not necessarily being woo’d by fancy packaging. My husband is a pretty simple kinda guy and I think that the more simple the packaging, the better he will identify with it.
You can get the L’Occitane Mer & Mistral gift set on their website. I think that it would appeal to a lot of people because it is so fresh and crisp, and sexy. Yep. There. I said it. It smells pretty sexy. haha
