Beauty Advent Calendars: L'Occitane

My only experience with L'Occitane has been those scrumptious hand creams. Those pretty little tubes of luxury and scent in the bottom of my handbag, usually received as a gift or in a hotel bathroom. I have to admit I have never even been into a L'Occitane store.
This pretty advent calendar caught my eye though, it's so unique and such a stand out from the other calendars on the market. It's also one of the more affordable ones at $70, how can anyone resist?

For The Luxe Lover  L’Occitane Christmas Beauty Advent Calendar
RRP $70
From L'Occitane in store and online

This advent calendar is filled with some of L'Occitane's best sellers and Christmas treats exclusive to the brand, so it's perfect for a dedicated L'Occitane fan. 
Given the Christmas themed gifts included, I think this would be best suited to an older audience or the host of an upcoming Christmas gathering, as the gifts like the place cards and gift tags would be perfect in the lead up to to the 25th.

The box itself is gorgeous and tied with a big red ribbon, the calendar is decorated like a stroll down a little French lane. Each window and door hides a little mini pop of goodness behind it.
It's a good thing that I'm a fan of their hand cream because there are 5 of them! They would be perfect stocking stuffers or stashing in your handbag or desk or bedside table or ...  but 5 of them? How many tubes of handcream does one person really need? 
I was hoping to experience a little more of what L'Occitane has to offer. 
There is only 1 fragrance included, I would have loved to see more as I always adore the scent of the stores as I walk past.
I think the price tag is quite good for such a luxurious brand, I just wanted a little more variety and think this would suit a more mature person or an already converted fan.
