A little history…  An uplifting sweet white Adriatic Fig blend, Colonia VIII (Colonia Eight) is a rich unisex Eau de Parfum that takes you on quite a different journey than traditional Fig fragrances. Highly prized in antiquity, it is said that the fig was one of the first cultivated plants and was the symbol of abundance. The Phoenicians, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans all considered figs to be sacred.

“If you have ever been lucky enough to be surrounded by ripe fig trees, then for me, this is that scent and it is just beautiful and fresh.” –

“Colonia VIII is a stunning fragrance, fresh and deep with a dark edge! Exotic and pretty.” –

“Colonia VIII will hit every note on your must-have list… Everyone will stop you just to ask what you’re wearing: trust us, we know from experience.” –

“This one reminds me a little of clean linen and powdery tones. Spring suddenly feels slightly closer, thanks to a hint of Colonia VIII.”– Helen Wilson-Beevers,

“One of those rare scents that translates effortlessly from office to after-work drinks, from day to night – an original take on “unisex” and a fresh twist on sumptuous, luscious fig.”– Fiona Klonarides,



Fragrance Tips

* Apply liberally to pulse points, just like Cleopatra did –  such as inside wrist, inside elbow, behind the ears, base of the neck and behind the knee

* Avoid rubbing the wrists together after application as this will cause the molecules to breakdown and the fragrance to fade

* Keep skin moisturised as it allows fragrance to last longer

* Spray directly on to your hair, or on your hairbrush, before brushing

* Spray onto your clothes and especially a scarf


Alcohol Denat, Parfum (Fragrance), Aqua (Water), Alpha-isomethyl Ionone

    Colonia VIII!!! My favourite fig!!

  5. Louise

    It smells and feels expensive, well thought out and tapping into the exotic of a time long gone, but not being old fashioned, anything but! This to me is what I think Cleopatra would smell like after she had bathed in Asses milk! And if its good enough for a goddess its good enough for me!

  6. LLF18

    I have had a lot of lovely comments whenever I wear it.

  7. nicky22

    I have received many compliments on this perfume! I love going into the boutique and look forward to my next trip.

  8. kat

    I think I am truly obsessed with this scent, not to mention the beautiful bottle! It does state it is suitable for both day and evening and I would certainly agree with this. I would wear this anywhere. It is such a versatile scent. I, would happily wear this through all the seasons. Because the quality is so high, I don’t need to do my usual and spray constantly every hour of the day! Just a few sprays and it lasted all day.

  9. rene
