Around The World Series: Provence (Kiehls Aromatic Blends Fig Leaf & Sage Fragrance)

By  |  324 Comments


Kiehls new Aromatic Blends Collection includes four fragrances: Orange Leaf & Lychee, Fig Leaf & Sage, Vanilla & Cedarwood, and Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit. The Aromatic Blends collection has formulated these fragrances to be a truer rendition of the ingredients involved, using high quality key ingredients to get a scent that really reflects the areas they are inspired by. 
For the release of these fragrances, I’ve teamed up with Kiehls to bring you four looks inspired by the fragrances themselves and the areas around the world they were inspired from.

Orange Leaf & Lychee: Morocco
Fig Leaf & Sage: Provence
Vanilla & Cedarwood- Uganda
Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit- Japan

Each scent comes in three forms- A fragrance, body wash, and body lotion.

For the second tutorial in this series, I chose to do a look based off of the scent Fig Leaf & Sage and it’s inspired area, Provence, France. I can honestly say that when I first saw the name of this fragrance, I assumed immediately that I would hate it. Why would I want to smell like herbs?! I was SHOCKED when I sprayed it on and actually really liked it! It’s very, VERY different from your usual fragrances- its spicy and complex and really quite awesome. The scent is meant to capture the way the air smells around the fig trees in Provence, along with the smell of the surrounding herbs. If you have a Kiehls location near you, I would totally recommend going in just to test this fragrance because its so different!

Since Provence is very lush and green, and the fragrance is green elements, it only made sense to incorporate that color into my look! I wanted to do something Earthy, but still have a fun, Leesha element to it. I chose to do this Green and gold look, and incorporate a double liner on the lash line.

    Out of a lot of your makeup tutorials, I really like this idea and like the looks you are creating for each country based off of pictures and research. I especially like how in the recent tutorial you incorporated each of the greens, yellows, and browns that were in the picture because that’s what makeup is supposed to be- an artform! Could you also do a tutorial later on how to match your makeup with what you are wearing? Thanks!

    You’re looks are always a great source of inspiration for me and my artwork, but I have to say that this one is especially lovely. I just got on a gold kick, and the green in this look just smacked me with what I need to complete a painting I’ve started. So, thank you. *u*

    I love the scent of figs! I never thought they have such a great smell, or a noticeable one at all, but then I tried the bodylotion from cnd and since then I love it so much. :)

    I love sage in scents or candles or really anywhere.  I can’t imagine how wonderful it would be pared with fig.  Honestly, without you doing this series, I never would have known about this line or really even registered Kiehl”s at all.  So, thanks.
