Getting Figgy With It: Evoke Sunny Memories With Roger & Gallet, Laura Mercier and L'Occitane

Fig Fragranced Cosmetics

Earthy, fragrant and delicious, there are few things as evocative of the sun on your skin as the scent of ripe figs. And as I'm just back from my holliers (waaaaaah!), I need all the reminders I can get - right now I'm crushing on these three variations on the theme.

L’Occitane Fig Leaf Tree Candle: Packaged in a striking hexagonal tin, this is perfect for bringing a touch of warmth and freshness to your home. The fig here is clean, fresh and green – though there's a lovely earthiness, and there is something nutty also in the mix.  €19.50 for a 100g tin, L’Occitane 

Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Fresh Fragrant Water: If you like your fig cut with tangy citrus, then this fresh and juicy fragrance is for you. The zest is balanced with the earthiness of musk and cedar, conjuring up the warmth of the Mediterranean, and the fig grove in all of its green and woodsy glory. €17.50 for 30ml or €39.75 for 100ml, M&S Beauty Halls or Feel Unique

Laura Mercier Fresh Fig SoufflĂ© Body Creme: This mouth-watering range includes perfume, hand cream and bath products, but for my money, the body butter is the star of the show. Rich and unctuous, it sinks straight into the skin and the delicate, feminine scent lingers for hours. If creamy and sweet is your bag, put this in it – you’ll thank me later.  €63, Brown Thomas

If you have any figtastic suggestions for me, do leave 'em in the comments!

That's so funny, I did my Fig post just a day or so ago, but who can blame us - it's such an amazing scent: http://makeupbycandlelight.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/figment-of-imagination.html

I adore the Roger & Gallet fig range, I rarely buy a full size of anything after I get a sample but I bought a bottle of that fragrant water, it's unbelievable. So unique!
