Roger & Gallet Feuille de Figuier Fragrant Wellbeing Water

A fresh green fig fragrance

Fig is one of my favourite notes in fragrance, merging sweetness and depth.

This morning, I tried the new fig based fragrance from Roger & Gallet which is one of the softest variations of fig that I’ve worn.

Feuille de Figuier is a light, green fragrance, marrying clean and sweet notes to make a crisp summer fragrance. While I admire the sentiment of their describing this as ‘wellbeing water’, this is not to be confused with a balancing mist or mood remedy; it is indeed a fragrance.

If Diptyque Philosykos is in your head at this moment in time, eradicate it. Feuille de Figuier is fig reimagined in a sweet and floral way. While the base is distinctly comprised of Fig accord, notes such as mandarin, neroli and bergamot really shine through to bring a lightness to this. It is playful but very ladylike in personality.

Top notes: bergamot, mandarin and galbanum

Heart notes: sweet neroli essence

Base notes: benjoin and warm cedar with a fig accord

The reason I’ve fallen instantly in love with this is that it smells like something I was wearing when I first interned in London. Those few months in between beauty cupboards allowed me to fall into Aladdin’s cave of beauty every day and exposed me to brands I had never dreamt to be able to own myself. In one spray I was taken back to the excitement I felt going into work each morning. We naturally respond to perfumes in more of a personal way, making an instant decision on how we feel about them. I try so many different perfumes all the time to write my blog, and this one truly has captured me.

If you like fig fragrances or you usually wear something sweet and floral and want to give it a little extra kick, do give this a try. I’d also note that for me it is quite distinctly different to other Roger & Gallet fragrances I’ve tried which can sometimes feel a bit more demure in personality. Think adventures, fun and summer love.

Available nationwide at Marks and Spencer at £39.50 for a 100ml bottle.
