Green fig, cedar, and creamy musk
$7.00 – $100.00
Fig Tree has notes that represent the tree’s leaves, fruit, and wood; it opens with the very green leaves, then moves into the creamy fruity notes in the perfume’s heart, then evolves in the drydown as the woods emerge. Notes include green fig, cedar, creamy lactones, vanilla, tonka, and musk. Although it’s a great scent for summer, it’s also nice during the transition seasons of fall and spring, and it can offer a welcome reminder of summer anytime of year.
Many fig scents have strong coconut notes from the creamy lactones that are often used in fig accords. In Fig Tree, our founder chose to minimize the coconut rather than to accentuate it. She envisioned a perfume that would evoke the various aspects of a fig tree in summer, with green, fruity, creamy, and woodsy notes.
Release Notes: Released October 2011.

Fig Tree is powerfully green in the beginning, with that unmistakeable fuzzy dustiness of the fig leaf; as if a very thin layer of earth is at all times resting on it, now matter how much you wash them. This raw effect ensures the realistic interpretation. But the unisex scent develops over time, seguing to a warm, delectable heart when the creamy notes appear (never too sweet, just on the brink of coconut milk), and then expressing a sustained woody-amber note, humming rather than hissing the lullaby of an eternal summer…
Fig Tree embodies all that I love about fig fragrances but have never managed to find with such well-balanced proportions. This fig scent is equal parts creamy, sweet, dryly woody, musky, and dewy green.
Fig Tree is about peace: inner as well as a way of life. The prominent wood and green notes are outdoorsy but also meditative…..I feel like I’m walking in a little personal fig leaf aura.
Fig Tree feels both fresh and warm while possessing a genuinely seasonless woody verdancy.
For me, it is a very pensive and comforting scent, redolent of time spent in the Camargue and Provence, where I first encountered the glorious fig in its happy habitat.
It’s sheer enough to be worn in warmer weather but, at the same time, has enough substance for the colder months.
Complex, earthy, spicy, just a bit sweet–that’s the kind of woman I am and Fig Tree opens up upon wearing to include all of these elements. It is a wonderful, fresh & green, sweet & rich, multifaceted fragrance.
Fig Tree is a time and a place fragrance.
Fig tree opens with crushed green leaves. The fragrance is very green and fresh. An astringent cedar intensifies the “crispness” of Fig Tree. You know how some cedars are dirty and warm? This one isn’t. This cedar is crisp, sharp and very astringent. When you smell Fig Tree, you feel like you are outside. There’s a bit of milkiness peeking through…the fig fruit. The dry-down is the tree bark. It’s woody, warm and soft.
Here you really get a beautiful, austere fig tree scent with ripe figs ready to be harvested. The smells of leafy greenness, woodiness, and unique fig fruitiness in this scent are naturally proportionate to a real fig tree and in that order. The touch of creamy coconuty vanilla makes this scent extra comforting to wear.
Fig Tree is one of the most sophisticated fig scents I have ever tried. It is so well rounded and polished, I don’t want to use the word glamorous to describe it but worldly and intellectual come to mind with this scent. This is a scent that perfectly sits in between autumnal and summery, which is precisely when figs are the best here.
Interestingly Fig Tree opens with a fig and choc/patchouli. While I am smelling the fruit and tree of the fig it’s the fruit that stands front and centre. I’ve never had a chocolate covered fig but now I feel as if I have. It’s interesting, different and happily surprising.
Fig Tree was the first scent I tried from SSS, and I love it!
