Lucy B Royal Green Fig & Vanilla Woods is my new favorite “beach” scent. I’m totally taking this to Mexico with me. This perfume is a beautiful green fig paired with coconut milk and ambroxan-like driftwood. There are NO florals. What we have here is a “creamy green” fragrance.
Green Fig & Vanilla Woods opens up as green fig. Is this a surprise? 😉 It’s crushed fig leaves and milky fig fruit. It then becomes a mix of sweetened coconut milk and warm woods. You better like coconut to wear this. Yeah, it’s linear, but it’s good. It’s warm and figgy and easy to wear. Sometimes I don’t want to wear a complicated perfume. I just want to smell good. This is the type of fragrance that will make me smell good. I say it’s my new favorite “beach” scent, but this fragrance can be worn any time of the year. It works in humid weather, hot weather and cool weather. I would wear it any time of the year, but I love fig fragrances.
Notes listed include green fig, green leafy notes, coconut, vanilla, and woods.
Give this fragrance a try if you love fig fragrances (those that are more woody and coconut) or if you are looking for a “creamy green”. Or if you like scents like Infusion Organique Buddha’s Fig, L’Artisan Parfumeur Premier Figuier Extreme (seriously, Lucy B is a great dupe of this one), Laura Mercier Fresh Fig and/or Susanne Lang Vanilla Coconut.
I find the lasting power very good. I get about 8 hours from a fragrance that retails for under $30. I really wish they’d make a body butter in this scent. That would be divine.
The 1.7 oz EDP spray retails for $28. There is a perfume oil roller-ball that retails for $24. It is available at Indie Scents. I think this is a great perfume for the money.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – A green coconut-milky fig with a warm woodsy base. Extremely simple but good. My new favorite “beach” scent.

I want it just for the bottle!! 😀

Having a nice bottle is one of its pluses too!
My first “niche”fragrance was the extreme figuier by l”artisan parfumeur.Bought it in the Hague Netherlands at Celeste. http://www.celesteparfum.nl After one week (!!!!!) I dropped the bottle ( very haevy stopper) which was still in the box: all glass and a devine smelling box. I stood there like struck by lightning. And bought a new one, because I just adore it. I am a true fig addict!!
🙁 Oh, that’s terrible! I’ve only had that happen once, Givenchy Organza. I still can’t smell Organza it was the strongest bottle break of all time 🙂
I’m a fig addict too! I love fig fragances. Fig is my 2nd favorite note next to patchouli.
Interesting! I’m not the biggest fig fan in the world, and I already have Womanity and Infusion Organique’s Buddha’s Fig. I may sample those to perhaps take.
I haven’t tried the Lucy B. line, though. Do you like others from this line? I AM a big floral girl and there is a pink frangipani, for instance…

This is more coconut which surprised me. I think it’s a great beach scent.
I haven’t tried any of the other scents in the line but I want to. Erin of The Crushed Violet (store in KY) says that Pink Frangipani is very popular at her store.

[…] Lucy B. Royal Green Fig & Vanilla Woods Perfume Oil – For the price, this is a great fig. It’s sweet with vanilla and coconut but has a hint of green fig leaves. It’s like “creamy green”. It’s one of my favorite beach scents. Retails for $19 at Beautyhabit. An EDP spray is also available but I like how the oil emphasizes the perfume’s creaminess. Review here. […]
