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.

    I really hope I win. I have this nose problem in which I have difficulty smelling certain scents, but I can still smell other smells at certain times. So, it’s really hard for me to pick a perfume that I can actually smell that isn’t overpowering.

    The eye look is phenomenal, i just love forest greens!  But, i think i’m crusing most on your lip combo.  The color is so right up my alley!

    Love the makeup look!  I would tone it a bit down with the green to wear during the day but at night it would look so nice!

    I am in love with this makeup look! I love the peachy melon shades with the green. So beautiful, and I think it compliments blue eyes nicely. I am going to try to recreate this eye look tomorrow.
