As a finale to the fig-fest of the last couple of days, here are some brief impressions of other fig perfumes I've tried. A few of these I like very much, but none come close to the perfection of Diptyque's Philosykos (the subject of yesterday's rave).
Body Time Green Fig Oil: VERY green, and VERY figgy. Almost too much of a good thing for me, but it is a great layering scent. Very reasonably priced.
Carthusia Io Capri: A fig & tea scent, but the fig is very subdued, and it is very soapy on the dry down. Not my favorite.
Creation Mathias L'Eau de Figue: A very rich, lush, green fig. Gets very sweet and fruity as it dries down. Well done but too sweet for me.
Des Filles à la Vanille Rivière de Janvier: Fig with rose and vanilla. Dry down is more rose and vanilla than fig, and I didn't find it very long lasting.
Fresh Fig Apricot: This has lots of apricot, more than I could take. If you really like apricot, it is probably worth a try. It reminded me of fruit roll ups.
Hermès Un Jardin en Méditerranée: Citrusy fig with a heavy cedar undertone, created by Jean Claude Ellena. One of my favorites.
L'Artisan Premier Figuier Extrême: Soft fig on a sandalwood base with light florals. Very nicely done. The regular version, Premier Figuier, is drier, greener, and without floral notes. Like Philosykos, it was created by Olivia Giacobetti — I am not sure if she is responsible for the Extreme version as well.
Napa Valley Fragrances Cielo: A sweet honeyed floral with subdued fig and green notes.
Parfums di Nicolai Fig Tea: One of my summer-time favorites, but don't bother if you're looking for lots of fig. This is more of a light, fruity, slightly herbal tea scent, with a lovely osmanthus note and just a bit of fig.
Slatkin Black Fig & Absinthe: The top notes are a dead ringer for Good N Plenty candy, but as it dries down it does get figgier. An interesting fragrance, but it has quite a bit of patchouli in the base notes, so it is no surprise that I didn't love it.
