Pacifica Mediterranean Fig (2010): A Homage to the Classic French Interpretation of Fig {New Perfume}

Pacifica-Mediterranean-Fig.jpgPacifica have released a new perfume called Mediterranean Fig which draws inspiration not just from nature but from the history of perfumery saying that it is "...inspired by the brilliant, classic French interpretation of fig, using all the elements of the tree, creating the sense of standing under its branches."

This is probably an allusion to perfumer Olivia Giacobetti's work for L'Artisan Parfumeur and Diptyque which gave Premier Figuier (1994) and Philosykos (1996)...

Known initially for their candles, Pacifica have demonstrated a knack for creating perfumes that can be convincing renditions of natural smells. I remember being struck by the freshness and veracity of their French Lilac.

"Earth meets ocean in this green, full-bodied cocktail of sweet fig, palm, cyclamen, moss, and clove, all set in a luscious sandalwood base. Sensuous and complex, it's a wonderfully imaginative take on classic fig. The scent of a fig tree is like nothing else in the world--this essence is easy to wear and layer, for both men and women. Embark on a fragrant journey, full of life, history, and lore."

Mediterranean Fig has notes of bergamot, sweet fig, palm, cyclamen, moss, clove, elemi, sandalwood. It uses a natural grain alcohol base (corn derived and gluten-free.) It is 100% vegan.

Price: $22 for a 1.2 oz spray perfume. Available at and
