Roger & Gallet Fragrances

I love a good fragrance, especially one from a brand that I'd not heard of previously. Roger & Gallet are just such a brand and when I was offered some of their perfumes, I had to do my research. Offering a natural touch of emotion and luxury everyday, R&G create perfumes and body care for the discerning individual. My first impressions were that of Penhaligons or L'Occitane, both brands I have loved for years so looked forward to trying some new scents.

First up is the Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Perfume with a head note of mandarin, also containing caraway seeds and grapefruit. A little longer on the skin and you smell fig leaves, musk, cedar, fig milk and fig pulp. All these wonderful ingredients mixed together makes for such a heady experience that it's fast become my go-to perfume for day to day. For those who don't like fig scented fragrances, this one is worth a spritz: gaining insight from the fig flower, this concoction draws from the delicate, much more subtle end of the fragrance scale and comes away with a modern twist on an old classic. I've had a love affair with figs since a young child and this adult fragrance is unlike anything I'd smelt before.

Then there is the ripe and fragrant Roger & Gallet Huile Sublime Bois d'Orange Perfumed Dry Oil. For body, hair and face, this nourishing oil is perfect slipped on after a decadent bath for an instant pick me up. The ridiculously overpowering smell of citrus (mandarin, orange and bigarade petitgrain), jasmine and cedar mix to form a delightfully intoxicating scent that lingers on the skin for much longer than expected. I've taken to slipping a little of this over my pressure points, along the ends of my hair and massaging into the neckline for a sumptuous, invigorating scent to fall asleep to. Not only does it smell good enough to eat, Huile Sublime Bois d'Orange has natural essential oil and vitamin E leaving skin feeling moisturised and hydrated. Perfect for my dry and sometimes irritable skin.

    1. Same, and I rarely ever see any reviews on fragrances and it makes it difficult to know what to buy!

    1. Do you like the rose scent? Is it overpowering or just as understated?
