I would describe this product as MEH. I wish I actually smelled it before I requested my friend to pick it up from Hong Kong. Actually I would were it not sold out at mid valley by the time it piqued my interest.
There’s nothing wrong with the product itself, the scent is just so cheap and replicable. Shame because I would’ve picked up the lavender shower gel instead.
It costs hkd160 which is around RM61, should be at least 10 bucks cheaper getting it from HK and they gave me samples to try which look like pretty good releases.
The mid valley SA was very doubtful when I told him I usually buy l’occitane overseas because it was cheaper. “All my hong kong customers buy a lot here because it’s cheaper in Malaysia”. It’s not before the price increase and most definitely not after the price increase. They even had 10% off everything during the Xmas period in HK. Fat chance that’ll happen here.
I did lie about my reason for not buying locally, I have no problems paying a bit more but…I’ll leave that for some other day.
