Francesca Dell'Oro Sainte +Figue:Fragrance Description

Francesca Dell'Oro has embarked on a project studying the Fig, an iconic and captivating fruit embodying the Mediterranean region's essence, a valid symbol of the region. The Fig holds significant meaning there and can be interpreted in various ways.What intrigued Francesca the most was Fig's dual meaning within religious traditions. In biblical texts, the fig tree is mentioned by name, symbolizing a force associated with birth and a potential catalyst for damnation. This duality is reflected in cultural history, where the Fig is revered as a symbol of life, fertility, and prosperity. It is intimately linked to pleasure and sensuality, evoking strong erotic connotations. The fruit's allusions to desire invite indulgence and ignite passion.

Francesca's project aims to delve deeper into the intricate layers of meaning the Fig embodies, exploring its religious, cultural, and symbolic implications. By examining its significance as both a religious symbol and a representation of sensuality, she seeks to gain a comprehensive understanding of this captivating fruit and its profound impact on Mediterranean culture.

Given the Fig's rich symbolism, it is no surprise that the FD'O snake, known for its allure and complexity, gracefully unfurls from the brand's logo. It elegantly entwines itself around the fig tree's branches, encapsulating many voluptuous meanings. This visual representation captures the intertwined nature of sensuality, temptation, and the manifold interpretations of Fig.

Pure and essential. Elegance needs no superstructure. Just look at it and breathe it.


Perfume story

In the mystical laboratory of a skilled perfumer, an enchanting journey unfolded to create an extraordinary amber perfume. Inspired by the beauty of fig trees, the perfumer embarked on a quest to capture nature's essence. With meticulous care, the sweet essence of carefully selected figs was extracted. The addition of fig leaf provided a refreshing touch, while the smoky allure of olibanum deepened the fragrance's mystique. Earthly amber woods and patchouli intertwined, accompanied by the resinous aroma of cistus labdanum. Completing the olfactory symphony, creamy vanilla notes harmonized the composition. The result was a fruity perfume that embodied the harmonious fusion of these exquisite ingredients, casting a captivating spell on all who encountered its aromatic magic.
