I recently turned 26 and for a while I've been searching for that quintessential fragrance. I wanted something sultry that symbolized me crossing the burning sands into full adulthood-a bit dramatic I know. Something luscious, juicy, and spicy yet with a bit of sophistication and timelessness. Recently on a trip to Barcelona, I stumbled upon a really cute shop in the Borne area selling fragrances from Spain. Campos de Ibiza , from the island of Ibiza created the Essencia d'Higo (Fig Essence) which carries top notes of strawberries, mandarin, grapefruit with middle notes of fig leaves, lavender and cedar. Packaged in apothecary bottles, the simple packaging gives comes with an old world boudoir feel.
