I've been opening my advent calendar this month with great excitement, it's a beauty one by You Beauty Discovery and cost me £55 with the promise of high end contents I have had some pretty good items so far.
I knew the brand Roger and Gallet from my childhood when mum used to display their soaps in the bathroom. They were highly perfumed and we were forbidden to use them so I thought they must be something a bit special!
Roll on to my 36th year and here I am getting my own Roger and Gallet Fleur de Figuier which promises to be fruity, floral and feminine. It is all that I can promise you, and more!
My first impressions are that this is very highly fragranced, which fits in with my childhood memories of the soap! Based on a ripe fig, the fragrance is meant to echo the essence of the mountains of Esterel, in Provence.
It is definitely an original fragrance, I have never smelt anything like it! But far too heavy for my liking and totally opposite of the light and barely there fragrances I usually go for.
I had to look, Marks and Spencer actually sell this water spray for £32. So more expensive than I expected really.
I will be gifting this item to a friend as I know I won't wear it but I am sure to some it will smell heavenly. It is not offensive, just too strong for me to wear so glad I got a mini to try to discover this than a full sized bottle.
