Rated 5 out of 5 by Violinblues Great Scent
Love the scent when I first tried the product. I could smell the green then the fig. I found myself opening the container to smell the scent.

I love layering products so the scent lasts all day. Since I no longer have a The Body Shop near me, I purchased everything online. I had gone to The Body Shop UK site to read various reviews. Everything seemed positive so I decided to purchase everything expect the Eau de Toilette (I'm not a fan of TBS Eau de Toilettes). I love fresh tree ripened figs and I love fig scented products. I've had fig scented products by other companies in the past and loved them. I was positive that The Body Shop wouldn't let me down with their Italian Summer Fig products. I'm sorry to say the scent was a huge disappointment to me. Upon receiving my package, I immediately opened it. The scent that wafted out was of "dirt". I immediately started inspecting the outside of the box to see if it had been dropped in a mud puddle and had dried dirt on the outside of the package! I just couldn't believe the scent.
Since I'm a person that will sample a new product with fearlessness and an open mind; I decided to forgo my first impression and give it a go.
I decided I would try all the products the next day, since I would be home all day. I would try every Italian Fig Product I purchased.
I tried the lotion on my forearms and hands when I first received it. It didn't have as strong a "dirt" scent. It did have more of a "green" scent. I still couldn't smell fig. I think the "green" I was smelling was the grape leaves.
I think the lotion had more of a "green" scent. It was lightly moisturizing. It absorbed quickly and fully.
I think this scent falls into the category of a chypre or aromatic, . If you're a person that likes that fragrance family, then you will probably like this. Those categories of fragrances are not my favorites.
I would like it noted that the only other scent form The Body Shop that I don't like are the Hemp products. My favorite The Body Shop Lotions are the Vineyard Peach and Glazed Apple.
Sorry, The Body Shop this one is just not for me
