Spices/herbs: Saffron, almond.

Musks: Labdanum, vetiver.

Evolution of Little Fig Tree.

Fresh fig and apple blossom are both apparent from the first spray. This fig is not the heady, over-ripe mid-summer fruit, but is still-firm and ready to pick. Mandarin and nectarine contribute a fleshy sweetness to a slightly citrus-accord and blackcurrant delivers a lively spark. The warmth gradually intensifies and expands, as vanilla, honey and jasmine notes seep through the lighter notes. Saffron and almond continue to add nuances as a touch of heady tuberose completes the rounded fig. The deep, woody notes in oudh a green vetiver together add the cool, leaf and bark notes. This maintains a subtle character, for wearing during the day, or night, whilst still remaining complex and sensual. Another perfume with a similar balance of fruit/gourmand is Dhoon Glen. For a deeper, richer fruit, Elderberry delivers.

Style: Fruit/gourmand
Sillage: Medium
Longevity: 6-8 hours
Which concentration?
EdP or Cologne Intense are the same dilution, roughy 22-24%. 
Pure Perfume/Extrait is a stronger dilution - 25-33% this makes the scent less volatile, so it sits closer to the skin and stays longer. Notes are deepened, emphasising the complexity. 
The 10ml comes in a clear, screw top bottle, if in an oil dilution, a roller-ball bottle is supplied. All other sizes are in spray bottles.
Oil
All sizes are available in an oil base, rather than alcohol, this will make the scent more intimate; it will sit close to the skin, but lasts about 8-10 hours. We use golden jojoba oil as this is the closest to skin sebum and is least likely to cause any skin irritation. 

INGREDIENTS: Alcohol Denat., Parfum, Isoproyl myristate, Linalool, Benzyl salicylate, Citronellol, Limonene, Methyl cinnamate, Geraniol, Benzyl butyrate, Cinnamyl alcohol, Anisyl alcohol, Hexyl cinnamal, Eugenol.
