Braille

Detectable only by touch, small discreet dots are found on many of our labels.

 

L'OCCITANE has always sought to make its products available to a broad spectrum of the population and the blind represent a category of people for whom access to consumer goods is often very difficult. Using Braille on our products represents an obvious step towards improvement: this allows the blind and poor-sighted to make informed choices.

 

Inspired by this, L'OCCITANE employees created an association, 'Provence dans tous les Sens' ('All the senses of Provence').
This school is designed to introduce blind and poor-sighted children and adolescents to the world of perfume. By sharing the fascinating world of perfumes, the institution aims to help the development of these young people's olfactory senses, and possibly inspire future careers.

 

L'OCCITANE is the 2000 AFB Access Award winner and proudly sponsors a contest to send visually impaired students to our Perfume school in Provence.
