Strangler Fig Perfume Oil $6.25$25.00

Strangler Fig Perfume Oil


A glorious parasite! Once the seeds of the Strangler Fig find root in the bark of a tree, snakelike roots erupt and reach graspingly at the sky. The Strangler Fig then sprouts numerous epiphytic vines that strangles and surrounds its unwilling host, and finally snuffs the life from it. Rooty, woody, with deep green tones.

Rappaccini’s Garden

Ascending to his chamber, he seated himself near the window, but within the shadow thrown by the depth of the wall, so that he could look down into the garden with little risk of being discovered. All beneath his eye was a solitude. The strange plants were basking in the sunshine, and now and then nodding gently to one another, as if in acknowledgment of sympathy and kindred.

Presented in an amber apothecary vial.

It goes without saying that the Rappaccini’s Garden and Apiary scents do not truly contain poisonous plant materials. Artistic license, my friend. Artistic license.

    I am so glad I got an imp of this one. It wouldn’t have been my first choice, but it has become one of my all time favorite perfumes. To me it has a freshly cut wood scent, balanced with something sweet and powdery. It simultaneously reminds me of the woods and the desert. It also gives me imagery of a dark fairytale or of the Wizard of Oz for some reason. Anyway, words can not describe this perfume, I just adore it.

    Wasn’t sure about this one but it grew on me (pun intended) It works well with a pumpkin spice lotion I use sometimes. Too bad Autumn is over now for it is a perfect scent for that season. Reminds me of some kind of sweet tobacco in a pipe but not overpowering

    Sweet, sweet sweet. Sickly sweet. All fig, no green. I found it a little nauseating honestly, but it is very identifiable as fig, which is interesting. If you’re into sweet, foody scents this is definitely for you!

    I adore this scent! Out of the bottle it was fig and cocoa, sweet and rich. On the skin and dry, a hint of cassis and dark berry with warm, subtle spice crept in. After a few hours the fruit fades away, leaving softly spiced vanilla and cocoa with a hint of the original fig. Gorgeous.

    I fell in love with this one when I got a free imp of it in a Christmas order. It’s intense on me, but not overpowering. A spicy yet green scent. The fig is balanced out by whatever notes make this smell more earthy. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes warm yet green scents.

    For me, this is quite sweet and fruity (figgy?) in the imp, but as soon as it hits my skin a more resinous note takes over. It continued to evolve on my skin, lasting quite a while (which is rare for me). Complex and outdoorsy, and I wore it for yoga and it made me feel flexible and strong.

    I got this one as a sample, so I was surprised to find it in my box and wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. It smells about the same on my skin as it does from the vial- earthy, warm, sweet, and…figgy. It’s a bit too sweet for my personal tastes, but I think it could ring out very well on the right person.
