La collection De Grasse Ambre & Santal and Rose & Osmanthus

The School of Grasse.

The true story of collection de grasse.

A place that unites precious ingredients from near and far.

The story began with the creation of a pair of scented gloves, prompting the cultivation of fragrant plants from the Grasse region. At the end of the 18th century, Grasse had become the world capital of perfumery a town where the greatest perfumers learned their skills, a place that united precious ingredients from near and far.

To create La Collection de Grasse, L'OCCITANE composed exclusive fragrances that unite the most precious ingredients, bringing them together in a beautiful harmony.




Karine Dubreuil knows the land of L'OCCITANE well - for its own. Trained at the Roure School of perfumery in Grasse, she has worked with major perfume houses. The nose behind many famous fragrances, she shares with L'OCCITANE a love of Provence and a taste of simplicity.

Especially for La Collection de Grasse, Karine Dubreuil has composed Ambre & Santal (the story of a fusion of scents), and has brought together all the tenderness of the scents of Rose & Osmanthus.

THE SPIRIT : An amalgam of characters, from ardent amber to rich sandalwood, sets the mind flickering between reality and dreams.

THE FRAGRANCE : The woody oriental in La Collection de Grasse reveals sensual and enveloping notes, and blends emotions with feelings. Bold temptation and the sweetest softness merge over and over again Amber and sandalwood seem to defy each other in a sunny, refined accord. The ingredients fuse in a striking confrontation.
