Scent of the Season | Kiehl's Fig Leaf & Sage
Fig scents are my favourite all year round but I feel like it's during the colder months that they really come into their own. My favourite of the moment is Fig Leaf & Sage by Kiehl's, which is unlike anything else that I own despite my preference for deep, woody fragrances.
Fig Leaf & Sage is one of a few unisex fragrances in my collection, blended with aromatic citron, bergamot and thyme. The scent itself is cool and fresh, becoming sweeter as the day wears on. There's something almost creamy about it, which in turn prevents it becoming sickly or overpowering and it fits the bill perfectly if you're looking for something a little different for everyday.
Kiehl's aren't a brand that I'd traditionally associate with fragrance, but both this and Orange Flower & Lychee have really impressed me over the past few months. The scents are light and fresh, each offering something unique to my gradually growing fragrance collection. Sadly they're not the most long lasting when applied to the skin, so spritzing it onto your clothing and/or hair is probably the better option, much like with Jo Malone fragrances. Still, with a scent this beautiful it's worth that little bit of extra effort.
