|Thymes Fig Leaf & Cassis Bath & Shower Gel|
Fig Leaf & Cassis is one of the four scented lines brought
back by popular demand by Thymes and reissued as Thymes
Classics. Though I never tried it previously, I got a chance to see
what made this complex gourmand so appealing when I was sent the Bath & Body Gel to experience.
Imagine bathing with a liberating scent that breaks down
your inhibitions and brings out your most sensual self as you luxuriate in
that tub–only the walls of your bathroom are no longer there along with your
tub. Instead, you’re inhaling that fresh green aroma of verdant fig
leaves, sweet cassis, juniper berries with tangy mandarin, feeling like your tub
is suddenly plunged in the middle of some tropical paradise where lush green
foliage, ripe fruits and exotic woods are in the warm, balmy air. The
longer you bask in that sun and those cypress notes emerge, the more your
worries seem to travel, almost as far away as this secret place.
What started as a fresh green scent does meld into a warm
sweet, woody scent that is clean and simple, but unavoidably sexy with the power
to lift your spirits. Now that I sampled this scent, I am hooked. I
need to try the Fig Leaf & Cassis Cologne next to compare the
composition of the scent in that form.
If what I describe sounds like your type of fragrance,
then do look into Thymes Classics Fig Leaf & Cassis Bath & Body Gel ($25) and other products in this line and see how far it will carry you
