Fig Leaf & Cassis is one of the four scented lines brought back by popular demand by Thymes and reissued as Thymes Classics.  Though I never tried it previously, I got a chance to see what made this complex gourmand so appealing when I was sent the Bath & Body Gel to experience.

Imagine bathing with a liberating scent that breaks down your inhibitions and brings out your most sensual self as you luxuriate in that tub--only the walls of your bathroom are no longer there along with your tub.  Instead, you're inhaling that fresh green aroma of verdant fig leaves, sweet cassis, juniper berries with tangy mandarin, feeling like your tub is suddenly plunged in the middle of some tropical paradise where lush green foliage, ripe fruits and exotic woods are in the warm, balmy air.  The longer you bask in that sun and those cypress notes emerge, the more your worries seem to travel, almost as far away as this secret place.

What started as a fresh green scent does meld into a warm sweet, woody scent that is clean and simple, but unavoidably sexy with the power to lift your spirits.  Now that I sampled this scent, I am hooked.  I need to try the Fig Leaf & Cassis Cologne next to compare the composition of the scent in that form.

If what I describe sounds like your type of fragrance, then do look into Thymes Classics Fig Leaf & Cassis Bath & Body Gel ($25) and other products in this line and see how far it will carry you away!
