This Christmas, our Classic Beauty Advent Calendar takes the form of a book, telling one of our true stories about the almond tree. Did you know? In the 1950’s, almond trees completely disappeared from the Provence landscape. In 2000, L’OCCITANE, with the help of our producers, decided to reintroduce almond trees back onto the hills of Provence. Today, the Provence landscape is full of almond trees.
