Celebrating the 40th anniversary of beauty brand L’Occitane, garden designer James Basson, has looked back at the roots of L’Occitane, focussing on how and where the company was created.  L’Occitane was started in 1976, in Haute Provence, when Oliver Baussan found an old steam distiller that had been discarded.
