If you've read my hugely popular post on my Mulberry handbag from Bicester Village then you will know what a fan I am of the discount outlet.
Bicester Village is located on the outskirts of Bicester (funny that), not far from Oxford. It contains over 130 designer stores like Gucci, Mulberry, Vivienne Westwood, Molton Brown and Ralph Lauren to name just a few, all of which sell their goods at discounted prices.
I've been shopping there a few times now and it gives me a chance to try brands that I wouldn't usually buy at full price. L'Occitane is one of those. I love my luxuries and regularly buy products at Jo Malone and Molton Brown, so L'Occitane was an obvious choice to try next.
I chose L'Occitane's candle and eau de toilette in the scent Cherry Blossom. It's a very floral and girl scent which really suits me.
The candle usually costs £28 but I got it for £18 at Bicester Village, and the eau de toilette retails at £39 and I purchased it for £21. That's an overall saving of 58%!
TIP: Don't forget that if you stay the night at Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa you will receive a voucher booklet for 10% off every store including L'Occitane :-)
