This luscious purple-hearted perfume sings sotto voce of breathless August afternoons beneath the green canopy of an Arcadian sky, and right before Iâ€™m about to gnaw off my wrist, a heady drydown of Africa stone and fir absolute decide to do me in.

A real perfume with depth and longevity, and the Africa stone in the base adds another layer of complexity to this seductive and succulent gourmand perfume.

Fig is luscious and rich and fruity and a little spicy. It is sexy and poignant, and a little dark. I ate a lot of figs this summer. They hung heavy from the trees around my house. I picked them from the branches and ate them on the spotâ€”warmed from the sun, sweet to tasteâ€”red and jammy inside, tender to touch.

Like many Aftelier fragrances, Fig has me under her spell. It develops from sapling to the full glorious ripeness of age; her swansong is a sensuous dance, lush, rich and memorable.

Aftelier Fig is one of our top natural perfumes for summer! Mandy Aftelâ€™s most popular scent perfectly captures the sweet, lusciousness of ripe black figs.
Fig speaks of contrary alliances. Itâ€™s musty yet sharp, balsamic yet sweet. Itâ€™s indolic and resinous, earthy and powdery. Mandyâ€™s Vintage Patchouli essential oil might be in Fig because it possesses a rich, earthy base that resembles the aged patchouli. But the overriding beauty of this fragrance is the merging of fir and jasmine sambac. Somehow the two create a sap-filled scent that is dark and jammy with a subtle spicy flourish only jasmine sambac can offer. The chewy aroma of Fig is so unique and alluring, I had to put it on my holiday wishlist... gorgeous perfume which fortunately lasts all day.

Aftelier's Fig re-creates the experience of overripe black figs, the kind that is actually worth trying even when not freshly picked. An accord of resinous yet sweet fir absolute along with jasmine sambac and yuzu creates this pleasant illusion for a moment in the opening. In my experience, the FIR is the star of FIG, and the jasmine creates a perfumey impression, which dries down to a powdery sweetness.
