Sage Machado Peridot Perfume Oil Review

Sage Peridot perfume

After its 15th anniversary, Sage Machado has updated the brand’s classic Peridot perfume making this fig fragrance even richer than before.

Peridot opens as green fig leaves over a doughy, warm benzoin amber. It’s one of those more “coconut”/lactonic figs that bitter/green. With time Peridot wears as a rich, creamy amber with a skin-hugging musk. Because of the contrast of fig leaves and rich amber, I think of Peridot as a “late harvest” fragrance. It’s a fig fragrance that is cozy in cool weather.

Many years ago I tried the original Peridot but I don’t have a bottle to reference. From my memory, I can say that the updated Peridot is warmer and less fruity and less floral. And I’m going by distant memories here, but I prefer the updated Peridot over the original.

Notes listed include blood orange, fig, amber, musk, oak moss and vanilla. Launched in 2014. PERFUMER – Sage Machado

Give Peridot a try if you like sweeter fig scents. Or if you like perfumes like Lucy B. Green Figs & Vanilla Woods, L’Artisan Parfumeur Premier Figuier Extreme, B&BW Brown Sugar & Fig and/or Susanne Lang Vanilla Coconut. I view Peridot as unisex.

Projection and longevity are average for an oil-based perfume.

The perfume roll-on retails for $45 at Sage Lifestyle. 

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONA “dark” fig. I love figs and tend to like fig fragrances. I really like how this is a fig paired with a delicious amber; a fig that I can wear in cooler weather.

  1. What a timely review! I have been working my way through a Sage sample set for the last couple of weeks. Peridot was my favorite, and my first FB from the line. I can tell your readers that this is a good example of a fig fragrance that people who don’t usually like fig (me!) would like. But I know how much you like fig, so I suppose people who like fig would like it too!

    1. Great minds think alike 🙂

      I really like Peridot and almost put that I think non-fig-lovers could like it but didn’t want to say that since I love fig 🙂 So people, do you see this! It’s a fig for fig lovers and haters! I look forward to wearing this one this fall.

      It’s been a long time since I’ve tried these. I do remember (years ago) thinking Onyx was my favorite. And now sniffing this one, I imagine the two would wear nicely together.
