Reviews of Fig Tea

The tea note is fluidy and almost ozonic, the smell is fresh and windy with a figgy final faint  powderiness and some fruity-floral notes whirling around (osmanthus, peaches??). The smell is light, sweet, wearable and summery, more fruity than floral. The scent of fig is evanescent and i catch more sweet fruits, aromatic herbs and white flowers in the air. A joyful but untemperamental fragrance. Not bad anyway.

I don’t quite get this one. I detect a sweet anise/licorice note and a non-specific fruity/floral feel, but neither of the notes in the name, nor any of the notes in the de Nicolai press (osmanthus, davana, jasmine.) I guess what’s listed as an osmanthus note could be showing up as a peachy sweetness, but if so I’m only finding the fruitiness, not the flower.

Fig-Tea could be used as a cologne-style summer fragrance, but over time it trades freshness for sweetness, winding up with more sugar than flavor. There is an interesting similarity to Aurelian Guichard’s Aqua Allegoria Anisia Bella for Guerlain. The floral/anise tune common to each takes different paths, though. Rather than Fig-Tea’s sweeter and fruitier turn, Anisia Bella starts with more complexity (I know, surprising for an AA) and grows cooler, more powdery over time.

Too sweet. Too watery. Too tame & typical. Not enough tea; no fig that I can detect. Might be better as a masculine.

well, yes, it smells more like apricot. :( pity

for apricot PdN has Eau Turquoise. In Fig Tea I wanted to smell FIGS. But it's apricots in here too, and just few green figs, than wet, watery woods.

not bad, but... I expected nice fresh ripe figs. Not what I get here.

It is what it says on the can: fig and tea! There is a measure of spice early on and this fragrance definitely has a feminine feel to it. With time, the spice diminishes and the scent becomes less dense, with a watery fig presentation. A nice scent for a girl.

I just plain loved this fig smell. It's something for an every day perfume.
