THIS year sees Roger&Gallet launch their first ever Eau de Parfum, created by world-renowned perfumer, Francis Kurkdjian and housed in a stunning cut glass bottle designed by Martin Szekely.

Following on from the success of the Fleur de Figuier range, Francis has created an entirely NEW composition with precious distilled essences and stunning candied fig.

This ingenious method creates the impression of fig in each note.

The result is a sensual, all enveloping, sweet and luscious freshness; reminiscent of those seemingly endless, warm Mediterranean summers by the shores of the Esterel, in the South of France.

in from Italy, pink peppers from Ile de la Réunion andpatchouli from Indonesia.

The other notes of the composition are called “accord” and are the purest interpretation of the perfumer and its magical twist to re-create the smell of a pulpy or a candied fig.

Fleur de Figuier EDP is a modern floral Chypre scent. At the top, juicy and tangy mandarin notes burst with citrusy freshness, whilst a delicate dash of pink peppercorn enlivens it further.

At its heart surprisingly harmonious ‘violet wood’ complements the greenness of fig leaves.

Patchouli and moss at the base of the composition give the fragrance its Chypre quality enveloping it in a warm muskiness.
