Moroccan Fig description
Some perfume notes don’t get enough of the spotlight. While the masses go for rich, sweet, sultry vanilla or hot, animalic leathers, there are other perfumes that are every bit as enticing and primal but for some reason don’t seem to get the love they deserve.
Fig perfumes are without question some of the most entrancing scents you’ll come across as you build your collection. They are every bit as sultry as a gourmand dessert scent, and have an earthy, secretive sensuality that is impossible to ignore. So if you want to make a mysterious and seductive statement with your scent wardrobe, try a fig-based perfume and pair it with bright, contrasting textures and colors. Fig scents are also perfect for when you want to wear dazzling patterns or dashes of loud color; they provide the sophisticated restraint to balance your look, while still giving you room to flex your style.
If you’ve never tried fig in a perfume before, let us introduce you to Moroccan Fig, by (Malin + Goetz). Moroccan Fig is a light, tropical fig perfume layered with green pepper and coconut, for a spicy and deliciously earthy experience.
The top notes include bergamot, a “fresh leaves” accord and green pepper, which wakes up your senses, instantly transporting them to an exotic, private island covered with green meadows and dense forests.
The heart opens after a few minutes of exploring your new island paradise, with both fig leaves and fig pulp, changing the fragrance’s color from deep green to dark, royal purple. Fig is a wonderful combination of sweet, jammy fruit and sheer, youthful and verdant stems. It also has a dusty, almost powdery dry texture, (similar to cinnamon), that lets that jammy fruit stand out. And the fig pulp gives the heart of Moroccan Fig a round, fleshy and full profile that will definitely get you noticed as it heats up on your skin.
The drydown is where the yummy coconut note shows up, to blend in with the round, sweet pulp and finish off the tropical vibe pulsing through the fragrance. There’s also a bright hit of dry cedar and tangy musk to amplify the rough silk texture of the fig leaves.
(Malin + Goetz)’ Moroccan Fig has everything you need in a beguiling and otherworldly fig perfume. The green overture in the top notes is the perfect appetizer for the dark juicy sweet pulp in the heart. And the coconut layered in the base adds a milky sweetness of its own that syncs your body to fantasy island time instantly. So grab that bartender and order another Mai Tai, and forget the mainland for awhile.
