Here is what is happening in the beauty world at the moment...
Roger & Gallet will launch their first eau de parfum, Fleur de Figuier. "Inspired by summer on the shores of the Esterel in the South of France, the fragrance has been created by perfumer, Francis Kurkdjian. Originally created in 2012, today he has created an entirely new composition, with distilled precious essences and ‘candied’ fig, which creates the illusion that fig is present in every stage of the fragrance. At the top, mandarin notes are combined with citrusy freshness and a dash of pink peppercorn. At the heart is violet wood, which complements the greenness of fig leaves; leading to a base of patchouli and moss. The fragrance is accompanied by complementing body care products of the same scent. " This will launch in April/May and cost £40.50.

Elasticity is noticeably enhanced for a firmer look and feel and signs of age fatigue are less visible, making the complexion appear revitalised and luminous.
