All Ages model and lifelong fig aficionado Sylviane Degunst gives fig-scented fragrances a thorough once-over
To me, figs are the fruit of the gods. That’s why I was excited to test these fragrances: just the idea is heaven.
Miller Harris’ Figue Amère (£75 for 50ml, millerharris.com) has a strong scent, a potent mix of tree, soil and fig. I’d say it’s quite masculine, though. Then again, I sometimes betray my beloved No 5 (Chanel) for Habit Rouge (Guerlain), which is supposed to be for men, but no one ever complains. So let’s say it’s a unisex, sophisticated perfume.
