About This Product
Ever since the ancient world, Figs and Fig Trees have been discussed, beloved, even revered for their profuse fruition and sensuality. In the world of modern fragrance, fig might find its way into perfumes designed for women, perhaps for its fruity qualities, more so than fragrance designed for men, but to the Ancients, the fig is associated with men and specifically, men’s sexuality.
There are wonderful textural delights to be had as well as gloriously original aromas when cozying up to a fig tree; a slightly rough but fuzzy skin to the bark, leaves, and even the fruit that is vaguely reminiscent of skin juxtapose a silky sweet and milky caress found in the supple fruit and sap. The prodigious fruit, with that characteristic shape, adds to the reflections on sex and reproduction; as well as sustenance, fulfillment, and pleasure.
The challenge to create an all-botanical fig fragrance that encapsulates the concepts inherent in “The Forbidden Fruit” series was great… and delightful. With Figue Interdite, I felt I wanted everything present: the tree, the leaves, and the glorious fruit, filled with sensuous beauty and a rare exoticism. For me it’s an elixir that’s sexy, vibrant, and ever whispering the secrets of the Ancients.
* EdP / VdP sample vials are 1/2 filled; 1 ml Perfume / Extrait or Voile Parfum mini roller ball vials are filled.
**FYI: the Voile de Parfum format is created with IPM, which is not considered a natural product. However, it is the only format that is ship-able for International orders as it is non-flammable by Dangerous Goods standards. EdP, which uses natural alcohol, is considered a Dangerous Good, due to it’s flammability and can not be shipped outside of the continental US.
***Note: The notes listed in the “ingredient” categories are all botanical accords. Some mention it specifically and others do not in that list, but they are all natural isolates/ melanges.
