Created for Roget&Gallet by perfumer extraordinaire and nose-of-the-moment, Francis Kurkdjian, Fleur de Figuier is an incredible burst of freshness that encapsulates the drowsy luxury of basking in Provençale sunshine.
From the first sniff we are transported to sunnier climes and can practically feel the warmth on our skin, with ripe fig pulp, fig leaves and fig milk used throughout to soothe, comfort and uplift the senses.
This sunny offering positively bursts from the bottle, filling the room with a glorious fizz of mandarin fruitiness and the aromatic air of lightly spiced caraway seeds. A zing of grapefruit is added a little further into the mix, with its citrus tang awakening our senses.
The dry-down is particularly swoonsome, with a delightfully dry cedar smoothed into perfection by the creamy base of that fig milk. It’s something we can see ourselves reaching for throughout the warmer days and
whenever we need a happy holiday memory to get us through more challenging times.
If this doesn’t have you checking where your passport is and flipping through holiday scrapbooks for inspiration, we’ll eat our (straw) hats…
