I’m not necessarily one for a “signature” scent. There are certain notes I look for in fragrances, but I’m not married to any bottle or brand…mostly because I wouldn’t want to miss out on super-decadent fragrances like Lisa Hoffman’s Tuscan Fig, that might otherwise go under the radar.
The eau de parfum is a decadent combination of vanilla, coconut wood, gardenia, and honeysuckle. Though rather sweet, I found Tuscan Fig is a delicious, long-lasting fragrance that immediately put me in a happy place. For me, warm vanillas and woody notes have something very fall about them: one sniff has me dreaming of curling up next to a fire with warm apple cider and a book. I have a very strong feeling this scent will transition into autumn nicely.
For those who like scent comparison: Tuscan Fig is an upscale spin on Bath & Body Works’ Warm Vanilla Sugar collection. The Lisa Hoffman scent is without a doubt more complex: Warm Vanilla Sugar (though delicious) always seemed a bit young, whereas Tuscan Fig is more wearable for those post-college who want a sexy, feminine fragrance.
