fragrance is a bit of a departure from my usual choices. I went for a peruse in
Pixi’s Carnaby Street boutique this week and whilst I was there, their
collection of three fragrances caught my eye. I never knew they sold scents
before, and to be honest I’ve never been particularly taken with any beauty brand
fragrances, but I instantly fell in love with Pixi’s ‘Fig’.
I’m not sure if
it’s because I love eating figs themselves, but something about the fig scent
smells so clean and fresh, and Pixi have managed to add a little extra
something into the mix. It still manages to smell like a ‘real’ perfume, but
retains that fresh fruit smell. It’s not sweet, but it’s simply delicious. On
first spray it almost smells a little like cut grass… so fresh and unusal. It’s also most definitely a
summer scent, but I love it so much I really don’t care! I’m going to be
wearing this all winter I think! The bottle is so plain and simple, I think it’s quite chic.
The staying power
isn’t the best (considering it’s an Eau de Parfum) but it will give you a good
few hours of wear.
Pixi also have two
other fragrances in the collection, each created for the founder Petra’s
sisters. I’m not a huge fan of the other two (Rose and Mimosa) but I love the thought that has obviously gone into
creating the collection for her family…so sweet!
Pixi Fig is only
available in 30ml Eau de Parfum, £24 in store and online. (It’s also available
in an oil roll on for some reason it doesn’t smell as good to me!)
