Now that Summer is almost here – well it’s not physically here in Glasgow yet, but y’know what I mean – I’ve been trying to mix up my fragrances a bit. I usually opt for a muskier scent a la Tom Ford’s Velvet Orchid or YSL’s Black Opium but come Summer I like to opt for something a bit lighter, fresher and sweeter…enter Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Eau Fraiche Fragrance*. I was recently sent this fragrance and immediately fell in love with the packaging – look how pretty it is! I had actually never tried anything from Roger & Gallet before so was really excited to give it a go.
“Summer under the fig trees…”
Figuier translated from French means ‘fig tree’ so naturally one of the main notes is Fig Pulp along with…
Harmony of Cedar
I always find it really difficult to describe scents but what I can tell you is that this scent is really gorgeous. It smells really light, fruity and has a slight sweetness to it, but nothing overly sweet. It definitely has a hint of Mediterranean to it – is that even a thing?! It is now! I definitely can imagine walking around the South of France doused in this sporting a maxi dress, big hat and some shades anyway! Even now as I write this post I’ve spritzed it a couple of times for some inspiration and I really can’t stop sniffing my wrist, it’s gorgeous. Darren has also given a nod of approval so it must be good.
I know that you can get this easily online but when I was passing through Marks & Spencer yesterday I noticed they had a whole stand full of Roger&Gallet products so it’s definitely worth a sniff if you’re passing by. I’m definitely going to pop in when I have more time and have a browse as I know they have loads more products in the Fleur de Figuier range including body lotions and other bath goodies!
You can buy Roger & Gallet Fleur De Figuier Eau Fraiche 100ml for £32 from Marks & Spencer here.
Have you tried anything fragrances from Roger&Gallet? What’s your favourite?
Lots of love,
