L'Occitane Mer & Mistral Eau de Toilette: Review
Fragrance gifting can be tricky, especially when buying for men because it's hard to find one that both genders appreciate and enjoy. So today I want to review a lovely unisex scent from L'Occitane's La Collection de Grasse. Inspired by the fresh breeze and sea spray of the French Riviera town Grasse, Mer & Mistral Eau de Toilette ($75 CAD) is a zesty aquatic scent suitable for both men and women.

Mer & Mistral comes in a simple and elegant rectangular glass bottle. The perfume is tinted a refreshing shade of blue.

The Scent:
Mer & Mistral is described as an aquatic scent.

Top Notes: Lemon, Tangerine.
Middle Notes: Cypress, Rosemary, Pine.
Base Notes: Musk, White Amber, Cedar.

This scent immediately blew me away with its fresh woody scent. Combined with the sweeter top notes of citrus, the pine, rosemary, and cypress gives off the most refreshing fragrance. The perfume reminds me of the ocean with the salty air mixed with the scent of leaves and fresh greenery. Although advertised as an unisex scent, Mer & Mistral to me is more masculine. It has that manly, fresh-cut feel to it that I feel works better as a cologne.
L'Occitane is available online and in stores at L'Occitane boutiques nationwide.
