L’Occitance en Provence has just opened their third boutique in Penang! the new outlet is located at first floor of Gurney Paragon, right opposite of Charles & Keith! Clarance from L’Occitane invited a bunch of us to have a brief tour at the new greenhouse concept boutique!
just in case you’re unfamiliar with the brand,
founded in 1976, L’Occitane (originated from Provence, France) is now a well-established and renowned international brand with presence in over 80 countries and with 1899 stores worldwide and counting. L’Occitane has been a socially responsible company from the very beginning. the meaning and purpose of the brand are based on strong values: respect for both man and the environment, with an emphasis on exchange and sharing.
by taking the initiative of reducing environmental impacts wherever and whenever possible, the new greenhouse concept focuses on reducing the use of energy and water where consumers around the area will be able to enjoy an eco-friendly shopping experience. In line with the brand’s earth-friendly concept, the furniture and props used in the store are also recycled.
if you follow AntzWorLd long enough, you would have known that i visited their Queensbay Mall’s boutique some time ago. and similar concept is being applied here and the new boutique at Bukit Tinggi, Klang.
oh by the way, L’Occitane actually means woman from Occitania (Southern part of France, including Provence). and all of the ingredients used in L’Occitane’s products are sourced purely in Provence! except Shea Butter.
there’s many enticing promotion going on in conjunction of its grand opening. make sure you pop by L’Occitane this weekend (October 10 – 12th)!
many gift sets from different ranges were nicely wrapped which you can buy it as a gift, or to reward yourself after a monthful of hard work 😀
i bought some gift sets during my last visit and here’s few items that i would like to recommend..
i love the smell and how my hair feels after shampooing. so soft and shiny!
Precious Cleansing Foam
i had a travel-sized which i brought it with me whenever i’m on trip. it’s one of the best cleansing foam, ever. the foam produced was dense and did a really good job on cleansing my face!
this is one the item that friends around me constantly rave about. they love how it’s so mild on the skin and yet doing the job (cleaning) well. i have not tried it myself as i’m not a soap person..
if it’s your first time stepping into L’Occitane boutique and you have no freaking idea what to buy, just browse through the Best-Sellers. you can’t go wrong with them!
