Caudalie Figue de Vigne Eau Fraiche

The fourth fragrance issued by the French skincare company Caudalie is a breath of fresh air for spring, ushering the memories of warm summers in the south, tinged with the characteristic nuance of shady, bitter and milky-sap smelling fig trees.

Originally there were the memories of Mathilde Thomas' childhood summers. The founder of Caudalie used to vacation on a small island of la Garonne where the scent of the centenary fig trees permeated the air.

The afternoon siesta under the shade of the trees is a precious recollection of a collective childhood of those of us born around the Med. To transform this beloved ambience into a fragrance to wear on oneself has been a recurring theme in niche perfumery, inspired as it is often by the eternal romance of the Meditternanean warm season. Acclaimed perfumer Francoise Caron (immortalized for her emblematic Eau d'Orange Verte for Hermes) took these references and infused them with hesperidic notes on top to render a fragrance that is delicate, around fig, of course, but with white cedar, rose and coriander notes as an anchor.

Perfect for the warm weather ahead, Fleur de Vigne sounds like it will be a popular addition to the Caudalie line of eaux.

Figue de Vigne by Caudalie is presented in 50 ml/1.7 oz of eau fraiche spray retailing at 22.80€. More info at www.caudalie.com
