Have you ever smelt a fig? I have, and I’m not sure about you, but I don’t think it really smells of anything. So why Kuumba decided to release a Fig scent, well, that was beyond me.
I first tried Fig after a trip to London. Whilst having a browse in Goodhood, my girlfriend threw a pack in my basket and said that it smelt nice. I pouted my lips, squinted my eyes and mumbled a confused ‘OK, but it’ll probably be a waste of money because Fig doesn’t really smell of anything’.
An hour later, I was eating my words. And a soft fig roll.
As soon as the stick was lit and I caught the first hit, I knew this was going to be an interesting scent. You’d expect, with fig being a fruit, that it’d be a lot sweeter, more ‘fruit’ like, but it wasn’t. Not in the slightest. The scent is sharp, zesty and fresh. It’s a very cool scent that is almost borderline minty, but it has a nice bitterness to it. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever smelt before and is without a doubt, one of the most interesting scents I’ve ever smelt.
I could imagine this being perfect on a bright spring morning, with the window open and the cool breeze of the outdoors creeping through.
If your curious – take the plunge. You won’t regret it.
Scent: Sharp, zesty, bitter, fresh
