It's an unusual one for sure. People either seem to love or hate it, but I really like it.
The packaging is clean & somewhat minimalist but retro. White background, black lettering and a picture of the bottle inside. No nonsense there. The bottle itself continues the same minimalist retro theme - simple shape, clear glass, the retro Kiehls font embossed on to it and a silver cap. With so much rather verbose, over the top perfume presentation around, I found this rather satisfying.

The perfume itself is strong. The sweetness of the fig is counteracted by the sharpness of the sage. It shouldn't work but it does. Initially the sage is the foremost note but it settles into a rather warm, pleasing aroma. At the risk of sounding like a press release, it really did remind me of sitting in a Mediterranean garden on a hot day.
I also liked the fact that you can buy it in both small and large size. Sometimes you want to treat yourself but can't spend too much money.
I think it's a great perfume for (hopefully) warm summer days.
