1. Rose and Vanilla Tahitensis Orchid
Sultry, bewitching and addictive, La Nuit Trésor brings together two notable flowers - the rose and the Vanilla Tahitensis Orchid - blending them into a fragrance that speaks of a passionate olfactory love story. Damask rose essence is given a 21st century twist with rose oxide, zesty lychee accord, patchouli and languid papyrus, then entwined with the sensual, good-enough-to-eat notes of wild vanilla orchid and sweet praline.

For thousands of years, the peony has been revered for its paper-thin, velvety petals and radiant translucency, but it's taken five years of research for L'Occitane to uncover the its secrets. The brightest stars of its new Pivoine Sublime skincare collection - the Skin Perfector serum, RM 198 and the Perfecting Cream, RM 172 - are loaded with peony extract to correct uneven skin texture, deliver deep hydration, and enhance the complexion.
3. Vivid Florals and Ebony Woods
A spirited, multi-dimensional fragrance that captures the essence of modern femininity, Modern Muse Chic uses a 'dual impression' scent concept that contrasts accords of vivid florals and ebony woods in order to connect with each woman who wears it. Depending on your personality, you might find yourself drawn to the lively notes of tuberose fir abs and stargazer lilies, or you'll appreciate the darker, intense traces of cashmere woods, patchouli blend and suede musks.

Using the Iris Florentina root, Kiehl's chemists have managed to formulate a silky, multi-activating treatment essence to tackle age-related loss of radiance, helping to renew, re-nourish and replenish skin.
