Summer is here! I love summer! Don’t you??
I love figs! I love « Γλυκό του κουταλιού σύκο» (spoon sweet fig) and now I found it in a fragrance and I am so glad that I will share it with you (not my new perfume bottle… just the information!). Roger & Gallet Fleur De Figuier! This is my first time using it even if it is a few years now on makret, and I’ve fell head over heals in love. I’ve been a massive lover and collector of perfumes for 20 years, this perfume is one of those very expensive scents it smells extremely expensive so it’s so worth every penny. The flowery/fruity power perfume to live for. It’s a very calming yet seductive scent that makes you feel very sexy and confident . In addition the Mediterranean note of the fig makes you feel like home, Greece. Whenever I spray it on me, I feel instantly that I am on a Greek beach enjoying a red sunset! Roger&Gallet says that it is a unisex Fragrance I tried it on my partner I can say it was fresh and uplifting on his skin but not so much as on my skin! I want it just for me!!
I have to tell you that you can find the Fig essence in two versions:
• Roger&Gallet Feuille de Figuier Fragrant Wellbeing Water
• Roger&Gallet Fleur de Figuier Eau Fraiche Fragrance
The first one has slightly lighter perfume than the second if you are not so much into strong fragrances.
The price is very good, you can fount it around £19.50 – £35.00. You can make your personal research on internet before buying and if you want to find it in Greece, you can, in pharmacies.
This is my summer suggestion for you but remember that the choice of a perfume is something very-very personal! As long as you like Figs I think that you will like it!
I am giving you the products description below, until the next time enjoy the perfume and have fun!

Did you know that Figs:
… are today’s featured superfood because, overall, their nutritional value is quite impressive. They have the highest mineral and fiber content of all common fruits, nuts, or vegetables. One serving of figs (fresh or dried) provides 6% of the Daily Value for calcium and iron, and 7% of the Daily Value for potassium.
… Consuming at least three figs per day can prove beneficial for weight loss. According to a study conducted on menopausal women, the risk of breast cancer is reduced by 34 percent in women who consume fruits that are high in fiber.
