What It Is: A sweet, woody unisex eau de parfum that exudes luxury and is inspired by the luscious figs of ancient times. 

A little history… White Adriatic Fig blended with green and woody notes, Colonia VIII (Colonia Eight) is a rich unisex Eau de Parfum. Highly prized in antiquity, it is said that the fig was one of the first cultivated plants and was the symbol of abundance. The Phoenicians, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans all considered figs to be sacred.

  • Top Notes: Green notes
  • Heart Notes: Coconut
  • Base Notes: Woody, Sandalwood
  • Olfactive Family: Sweet/Woody
  • Fragrance Type: Eau de Parfum (EDP)
  • Intensity: Moderate, suitable for day or evening wear

How To Use: Apply fragrance to pulse points (inside wrist, behind the ears, base of the neck), creases of your knees and elbows for a longer lasting, stronger scent. After applying, avoid rubbing or dabbing skin. This breaks down the fragrance, causing it to wear off more quickly.

Fragrance Tips

* Apply liberally to pulse points, just like Cleopatra did – such as inside wrist, inside elbow, behind the ears, base of the neck and behind the knee

* Avoid rubbing the wrists together after application as this will cause the molecules to breakdown and the fragrance to fade

* Keep skin moisturised as it allows fragrance to last longer

* Spray directly on to your hair, or on your hairbrush, before brushing

* Spray onto your clothes and especially a scarf
