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.
