Pacifica’s Roll-On Fig

pacifica roller ball perfumes review

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

  1. Hi Ruth, I know it is a little bit random but this was the latest fragrance post that’s why I am writing here.. I have been looking for a signature scent for my entire life and recently I met Gucci Gorgeous Gardenia!!! It was love at first sight!! Just wanted to ask your opinion about it

  2. I could be wrong, but I think they may be more common in the US. Tons of boutiques around my area (in the midwest no less) stock them. Even Target stocks a few scents. My favorite is Persian Rose – I usually hate Rose scents, but the Pacifica scent is just different enough. Anyway, love your blog. Especially your style of writing – it’s so refreshing on a beauty site!

  3. You can buy these at the larger branches of Tesco’s!!! They stock Clarins, Naio etc but stock these roll-on perfumes, candles, soaps and sprays as well as solid perfumes.

  4. Whole foods!!

  5. ahh I looove Aqua di Parma’s Fico di amalfi, but unfortunately the lasting power is terrible on me :( i’ll have to try this!!

  6. The Pacifica lemon blossom body lotion is my favorite and the solid perfumes are nice. They sell it at Whole Foods in the US. I don’t suppose they carry it at the WF in the UK, but it might be worth a look.

  7. I just ordered from pacificaperfume dot com. They have 1oz sample tins of solid perfume for $2.00 each in all of their fragrances. Even discounted shipping of $2.95 so I ordered a bunch to try.

  8. I’m old enough to be your mother and I think the hippie fragrance you were referring to might be patchouli. I still love it if it’s used with subtlety.

  9. Hi Ruth! Im pretty sure that planet organic has this, well they definitely have the spray anyway! xxx

  10. Hi Ruth. Pacifica’s Spanish Amber has been one of my favorite scents for years. Pacifica’s products are very high quality and very reasonably priced. As for spray versus roll-on I have used both and don’t really notice any difference in the scent so I buy the spray for home and roll-ons for my purse. I hope you get a chance to try a few of the other scents and enjoy them as much as I have.

  11. I love these scents! The Tahitian gardenia is my favorite. I’m not sure about online stocks, but I know they can be found in Wholefoods stateside!

  12. Hey, question about your hair – how did you go from very blonde to having such a natural looking blonde? did you get loads of lowlights or an all over darker tone? any hairdresser I speak to is clueless! Love your blog and your videos, just discovered them a week ago and I’m so glad I have!

    • It took years to get it back to normal! I just grew it out and kept having lowlights. xx

  13. I’ve come across the solid versions of these before but not seen the roll on.

  14. Love Pacifica. I don’t have any roll ons but have a few solid perfume versions. They are great for summer, scents are delicious. I really like the Tahitian gardenia, Hawaiian guava and Sicilian blood orange. I got mine from wholefoods in high street ken. Also “as nature intended” stores stock some Pacifica

  15. I tried one of these at wholefoods a couple of weeks ago and regretted not buying it, it wasn’t the fig scent but it was lovely, I think they are perfect for summer :)
