One of the best things about France apart from the French pharmacies? The food of course. Offering up some of the region’s most delicious dishes, L’Occitane has just opened its very own café in the heart of Dubai. Located in Citywalk 2 the concept follows on from similar openings in London’s Regent Street and the Champs Elysées Avenue in Paris. Offering up a multi-sensory journey you can also delve into the latest launches from the skincare brand, with complimentary beauty services and shopping. Combining a patisserie, a salon de thé and a boutique it is truly a hybrid venue.
Light and airy, the space is quintessentially L’Occitane with the brands signature color shades showcased throughout. A touch not to be missed is the immortelle flower, a staple ingredient in L’Occitane’s most iconic formulas, which features throughout. As for the dishes the all-day dining concept ensures you can indulge in all of your French favorites from sun up to sun down. Think French onion soup, creamy burrata, and gnocchi with Daube stew to name but a few. Sweet treats are not to be missed with crepes and pain perdu all as delicious as any Parisian eatery.
What really sets the L’Occitane Café apart is its attention to detail. Mocktails have been masterfully crafted by famed mixologist Matthias Giroud. Linking the gap between food and beauty, his creations bring together ingredients inspired by key products from the skincare line. Arriving with a straw, which is all 100% non-plastic and takeaway boxes made from plant-based materials meaning they are sustainable, L’Occitane’s brand commitments are carried all the way through to the last feature.
