New addition to my fig scented products

Some notes hold a special place in my heart, and the smell of fresh leaves is one of them. 
The fruit itself, which I’ve grown to appreciate, reminds me so much of my late grandmother. She would always insist on giving me fresh figs for my commute during my internship in Istanbul many years ago. The ones we get to buy in stores in Switzerland usually come from Turkey, which always puts a smile on my face as I get this sense of nostalgia for my homeland. So these two products are the newest addition to my fig scented products.

Philoyskos by Diptyque 
My husband’s birthday present this year was this beautiful perfume, which was on my wishlist for a long time. This is not the sweet fruit but rather the thick, green fig leaves and the milky liquid. I have been wearing this a lot in the summer of 2017.

Available at Niche Beauty or the Eau de Toilette version also via siroop.ch

Figue Noire Tabac Blond, room diffuser by Fragonard
I had to buy this when I visited the Fragonard museum in Grasse in September 2017 (by the way, I have a German travel diary about my trip in the South of France on my personal website. Let me know if you’d be interested to have it translated.) This warm scent is currently enveloping our apartment and it’s a nice olfactory memory of summer days past, especially now we’re having lots of grey fall days.

Available at Fragonard (also online)
