I tweeted a while ago that I absoultely blown away by the incredible smell in the freestanding Country Road store in the V&A. I went as far as emailing them and asked what fragrance they use in the diffuser. It turned out to be fig (I am clearly not an expert when it comes to regnognising scents). I have been obsessed with that fragrance eversince and burned my fig scented candles on a daily basis (available from Poetry and Country Road). When I learnt that The Body Shop launched their Italian Summer Fig collection, I was hopeful that it would resemble the fragrance used in the Country Road stores. And I was not disappointed. In fact, it is an exact match in terms of scent. Happy dance!
The Italian Summer Fig collection smells fresh and crisp, instantly lifting your spirit. It has a dominant green fig smell but is not overpowering on the senses. The Italian Summer Fig collection is the newest addition to the Voyage Collection and consists of a body butter (R120), a shower gel (R99), body lotion (R140), body mist (R140) and an eau de toilette perfume (R275). I purchased the body butter, EDT and the shower gel. The body butter and shower gel is true to the quality you expect from The Body Shop products; rich and creamy. I have been wearing the perfume on a daily basis and it will be my signature scent this summer. The moment I catch a whiff of this fragrance, it lifts my mood.
I encourage you to go to your nearest The Body Shop and introduce yourself to the Italian Summer Fig collection. It will whisk you away to the sunshine coasts of Puglia, a holiday in a bottle:)
