CURRENTLY SMELLING LIKE / FIG FICTION

Scent: Fig Fiction by &OtherStories
images by me

Cans of paint, brushes, ink bottles and experiments of the signature dipping and drippings on pieces of paper. That’s what we saw everywhere at the &OtherStories head quarters in Stockholm when we visited last year. Packaging their 4 new eaux de toilette inside these flasks inspired on the traditional ink bottles from their ateliers makes a lot of sense.

Head of the beauty department of &Other Stories, Frida Fagerholm says that creating perfumes has been a dream since they started &Other Stories. For her beauty products including fragrances are an important part of personal expression.

Fig Fiction
Although &OtherStories only carries women’s clothing, most of these scents feel very unisex to me, specially the Fig Fiction, which also happens to be my personal favorite. It smells very woody, slightly sweet but also very fresh.

Top notes / Lemon, Black currant, pink pepper
middle notes / green bamboo, wild fig, dewy violet
base notes / vetiver, brazillian rosewood, plum

    you capture it so beautifully
    I wouldn’t dare ordering a perfume without smelling it first, unfortunately we don’t have an & other stories nearby. But I might just trust you on this one
