You may remember me mentioning this perfume in one of my past monthly favourites, and, much to my delight, for my 23rd birthday my big brother bought it for me. I discovered this particular scent by accident when I ordered a Vichy product and received a sample. I instantly fell in love with the unique, sweet and slightly spicy scent - I used to prefer sweet and girly scents like Anna Sui Dolly Girl and Marc Jacobs Oh Lola, but as I've grown up, these perfumes to be a little too ordinary and I find they don't really match my personality or style. If you're a fan of fragrances that are very different than the conventional female favourites, read on!
"Designed by the creator Francis Kurkdjian, Fleur de Figuier Eau Fraiche reveals all the fresh flesh tones of the delightful fruit. Initially you are enveloped by the fig leaves crisp aroma and fresh mandarin flowers, then the milk and notes of wood, create a warm and creamy background, this envelops you like a second skin, vibrant and sensual."
Roger and Gallet is a French brand that has been making perfumes for two centuries, the history is pretty interesting so if you want to know more about the brand, check it out here. The fragrance definitely has a strong scent of fig which I think is really unusual choice for a perfume, it totally works. The first sniff is rather musky and deep but it quickly transforms into a sweet and rather fruity aroma. It really is an intoxicating scent and is unmistakably unique - it is definitely going to be my signature scent! I adore it so much that I'm really intrigued to try some of their other perfumes; I quite like the sound of Bois d'Orange! You can even take a quiz on the website to see what your 'diagnosis' is and find the perfect product and scent for you.
