L’Occitane is a very exciting addition to Debenham’s in Leeds. The opening of the L’Occitane boutique in Debenham’s, means that the people of Leeds and visitors to the City can enjoy the gorgeous L’Occitane products that are available in their beauty ranges. L’Occitane en Provence is an interesting company as they have been committed since way back in 1976 to the preservation of nature and those that work in nature’s manufacturing arm and for blind people throughout the world. L’Occitane describes their values as those of generic inheritance, respect and sensoriality.
For those people that know L’Occitane – you will know that their products are very highly acclaimed already. L’Occitane has boutiques in the US and in a further 70 countries in the world – so their reputation says something about the global success of the company but this in turn says something fantastic about Leeds. Leeds has its own highly acclaimed reputation as the cultural and shopping hotspot of the North and this is reflected in the number of visitors to the city over recent years. With the establishment of a new L’Occitane boutique Leeds is now on par with New York, Paris, Dubai and Tokyo all of which hail the company already. L’Occitane gives those deserving shoppers in Leeds yet another opportunity to purchase gorgeous beauty products but more importantly the opportunity to sample the ranges that are firm favourites with many people throughout the world. Groups of visitors staying in the serviced apartments that have arranged a shopping break in Leeds are already hallowing the L’Occitane products.
Some of the favourites have been the beautiful L’Occitane en Provence fragrances. Through L’Occitane’s core values that are apparent throughout their brand which they describe as products to awaken the senses, the L’Occitane Foundation decided to support visually impaired people (relating their work cleverly to the human sense of sight), but that is not all the Foundation are committed too. They are also working towards ‘economic emancipation of women in Burkina Faso’ – a commitment to support the women in the region in the ethical production of Shea Butter and to increase their living standards – but if that is not enough to encourage our readers to try the L’Occitane products the Foundation has a third commitment to the preservation of nature and the natural environment in areas that contribute to their products, calling this commitment ‘preservation of the knowledge of the nature. Leeds and visitors to Leeds that stay in the serviced apartments can therefore be excited about L’Occitane opening their boutique in Debenham’s, The Briggate
