This Is The “Figgest” Trending Fragrance Note This Year

It's a fig deal

Like what I did? Kinda corny, but who doesn’t love a good “figgin” pun? As colder fronts roll back around, I bet you’re already neck-deep in a new knit or snuggled up in your winter doona – but have you thought about a new fragrance yet? This year, I’ve seen a major trend in perfumes with notes of fig. For some, figs may conjure up thoughts of spring and the warmth of sun rays on a cool dewy morning, but I beg to differ.

There’s no such thing as seasonal scents for me, there can be overlaps from summer into autumn and winter into spring but my biggest pet peeve? Is smelling your signature scent on a stranger/strangers in the street because nothing is more intimate than your scent. Just think – nothing sparks toxic memories like a whiff of your ex’s cologne. So if you’ve recently fallen into the category of owning a basic b* scent, then this one’s for you, because wearing another woman’s scent is like borrowing their used underwear.

Whether it’s a fresh, warm or sweet scent you’re after, you’ll be sure to find your new perfect scent here.
