Congratulations! L’OCCITANE Malaysia celebrates its 10th Anniversary in True Provencal Inspiration at Bridge Bar, G Tower on 17th Feb 2014. As usual my favourite L’OCCITANE product is the shea butter hand cream, how about you? From the famed creamy shea butter collection to its soothing aromatherapy products; and even the precious scents from La Collection de Grasse, L’OCCITANE has set the bar high for being not just a company focused on organic production methods, but also a socially-conscious one that ensures that product testing are never conducted on animals and Braille labeling allows accessibility for the visually impaired.



Founded in 1976, L’OCCITANE is now a well-established and renowned international brand with presence in over 80 countries and with 1,899 stores worldwide.

“The sun smiles on Provence,” quoted by founder Olivier Baussan. “Its warmth makes the soil generous and the people open-hearted. Its bright rays are reflected in the crafts, customs and traditions that have been handed down from generation to generation. The sun, the products of the soil and a love of nature are the essence of Provence. It is this essence that I want to share with the world. This is what inspired me to create L’OCCITANE.”

The charming & bubbly celebrity emcee Jonathan Putra made it an afternoon to remember, kicking off with an opening dance number by So You Think You Can Dance Malaysia Season 2 winner Cecilia Yong, which was inspired by the Parisian way of life, love and unspoken passions.

The spotlight then turned to the cake-cutting ceremony where the venue was filled with balloons, to the delight of all those in attendance. A lucky draw session also saw lucky ten invited guests walking away with L’OCCITANE hampers and goodies with the French-themed party receiving a rapturous reception from a fashionable crowd, clearly delighted by the jazz performance. There were also pampering session such as hand massages and also there were games like jigsaw puzzle and guess the fragrance with some tokens like hair clips and pins if we can complete the games.
