If that is, in fact, the word I mean.

Spent Thursday night in the Four Seasons. Sydney harbour bizarre but charming from above. Room was so comfortable I fantasized briefly about living there, then calculated cost of doing this and realized this was entirely impossible, which I should have known anyway without benefit of maths because frankly the one night I spent there was an unjustifiable expense.

Alas, have now fallen in love with a product line called "l'Occitane," thanks to samples in hotel bathroom--tried soap, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, and even the damned body lotion, a thing I never use at home. But where does one find this stuff, if one wants to buy it? Have never seen it on shelves, though admittedly have never looked. Can it be ordered online? And is there a shaving gel and aftershave in that same verbena scent?

L'Occitane (en Provence) is the name of a high end (expensive!) worldwide chain of boutiques that sell the type of products you tried at the hotel. My mother likes their lavender-scented bubblebath so I've been to a L'Occitane boutique in Montreal a few times already. You can find a L'Occitane boutique near you by going here:,23,1,1224,29648.htm?Country=Australia
