Di Palomo Wild Fig & Grape EDP and candle

DI PALOMO WILD FIG & GRAPE EDP* 50ml £22.00 link

"A rich, modern fragrance with top notes of grape & gardenia. Middle notes of ripe fig, orange blossom & mimosa rest on a sensual base of sandalwood, amber & vanilla."

First of all, I adore the packaging of this perfume. It is simple, yet beautiful and the little flower on the neck of the bottle is a lovely finishing touch as well. 
It comes in a nice presentation box, so it would make a perfect gift.

The scent is sweet and fruity at first and settles to a more floral scent with notes of vanilla.
It is absolutely beautiful and it has been my "go to" fragrance for the past two weeks.
 I love warm and fruity scents in Autumn and this EDP is exactly what I needed for this time of the year.
It lingers on my skin for around 6-8 hours, like most perfumes I used and I think that it would suit anyone who likes subtle fruity fragrances.


"This luxurious handmade vegetable wax candle is poured into a date wood bowl & provides the most delicious fragrance of Wild Fig & Grape. Approx. 12cm Diameter. Burns for up to 30 hours."

I mentioned before that I love candles :) Most of them are in glass jars, so this one looks very unusual compared to the other ones I own. 
I keep it in the kitchen, on a chunky wooden window ledge and it looks beautiful! 
The wooden bowl is made of date wood and the candle is made of Eco Soya wax and olive oil. 
Sounds perfect for any Eco-warrior or anybody who cares about the environment.

The scent is lovely and just like the Wild Fig & Grape EDP it is perfect for Autumn- warm and fruity.

  1. Everything about it sounds lovely except for the grape... which is too bad since that's one of the top notes!! For some reason I have just never liked grape scents or grape flavored things so I'll have to sadly pass on this one :( Looks like two beautiful products though!!

  2. The packaging is so pretty and i really like the candle coming in the little wood bowl, once it's burned out you may be able to re-use it which is cool x

  3. I haven't tried this brand yet but the perfume 'sounds' amazing & the candle is nothing like Ive seen before. :) The bowl is wooden - will it catch fire? :)


    1. Actually, I didn't think about it. The wood has a polished finish and I don't think it can catch fire, not from the candle anyway, as the wicks are not close to the actual bowl. All candles are meant to be kept in sight and not left to burn unattended for safety reasons :)

  4. Yum - my friend has the hand/body wash of this fragrance and i love it. I'm going to have to go and give the candle a sniff :)

  5. that candle looks so cool! congratulations on 3000 followers btw! xx

  6. I love candles! Specially decorative pretty ones, but still the most important thing is the scent. Fig & Grape sounds amazing.

    P.S. Congratulations on 3000 followers!!

  7. Oooh these look great! And that candle is adorable :)
