When you think of L’Occitane, the first thing that comes to mind would probably be lotions formulated with natural, delicious sweet-smelling ingredients like lavender, almond and shea butter. But if you thought hand creams and bars of soap are all there is to the French brand, think again because L’Occitane is increasingly known for more savory smells as well. In fact, L’Occitane actually has a café that serves up delicious French-inspired dishes in Shibuya, Tokyo.

Recently, L’Occitane also collaborated with renowned French pastry chef Pierre Herme to set up a lifestyle concept store in Paris that is home to an essential oils distillery, a restaurant, and a coffee and cocktail bar.

The pop-up in Singapore draws inspiration from this concept.

From July 3 to 16, L’Occitane will be teaming up with local dessert maestro Janice Wong to debut its pop-up café, The L’Occitane A Journey in Every Sense pop-up.
