While we’re more than happy to bid winter adieu, it’s still too early to bust out the splashy coconut and tropical scents. And that’s where fig comes to the rescue. This ancient superfood not only boasts nutritive benefits like vitamin B6 and copper for both body and skin, it also has a universal scent that makes it ideal as a transitional fragrance.
“Fig is a great choice for winter-to-spring because compositions tend to be both earthy and fresh, and not too sweet or heavy—so they’re easy to wear and work excellent in both professional and casual environments,” explains Franco Wright, co-owner of LA’s niche fragrance boutique Scent Bar.
Naturally understated, fig is also a unisex scent that you can share with your beau—though the ripe picks in this gallery are so delicious, you’ll likely want to stockpile for yourself! Here’s how to incorporate the subtle aroma into your beauty routine.
