I was very pleasantly surprised by these roller-ball perfumes from Pacifica. Not a brand that I had ever heard of before, but when I posted an Instagram of the Mediterranean Fig scent there were quite a few people who knew of it and wore it. It’s a very “clean” fig, if that makes any sense – there’s something going on behind the scenes that’s just a little different to most fig scents that I own. There’s also something a little boho or hippyish about it – it smells like a lot of my parents friends used to when I was very little. Sandalwood, perhaps? (Yes, I’m aware that I’ve just made a sweeping generalisation about my parents’ entire social group. It’s fine: they were all hippies. What a great word hippy is – very underused!)
Has anyone else tried the Pacifica roll-on fragrances? How do they compare to the sprays? I can find very, very few online stockists, though FeelUnique.com stock a brand called Himalaya Pacifica which I think might be the same – they seem to have a few of the same fragrances and sets. No roll-ons though! I’ve found the delightful little figgy one on Amazon: Pacifica Perfumes Mediterranean Fig Fragrance Roll-On Perfume
