Reviews of Nouvelle Edition Figue Amere

Gentle, pleasant and convincing fig. It seems that everything here is about moderation: not too sweet, not too fruity, not too bitter, despite its name. Definitely more feminine than masculine, with fairly decent staying power.

Quite flat, and more like generic soap with a hint of fig. There is also something bitter lurking around, although I'm not quite sure what. The dry down is considerably better than the top.

Figue Amere opens with a bitter green accord that's pretty interesting. Fig leaves, maybe some galbanum...Unfortunately it turns to a floral-ambery base that's not particularly refined and of much less interest. If you like floral-fig fragrances you can have plenty of better options out there (i.e. Jardins De Kerylos, Philosykos, Premier Figuer, Figuier, Ninfeo Mio..).

This is a very rich fig fantasy. Bergamot and fig goes very nicely at the start. and violets so sweet makes a bright counterpoint with the bitterness of fig. salty powdery sweet and figgy. Really good work. I could not compare this one with Premier Figuier by L'Artisan Parfumeur. Figue amere is by far the best. Premier figuer though having a promising top accord, is unluckily spoiled by a cheap coconut aroma. I have apreciated Fleur de Figuier by Molinard as an bright replica of the fig tree itself but Figure Amere much complicated, artistic sweet (and feminine) goes to the wish list at first try.

Top: bergamot, mandarin
Mid: “bitter ripe green figs,” salt, Narcissus poeticus, rose, green violet leaves
Base: cedar, amber, sea moss
This opens with a nice, earthy fig scent. Oddly, this scent projects more coconut than Premiere Figuer (regular or extreme) by L’Artisan Parfumer – yet there is no coconut listed here. In comparison to the L’Artisan products, this is much more floral, creamier, sweeter. It is not a lean green scent in any sense. Lots of sillage here folks. The drydown is sweet and ambery, and I don’t get any cedar. This is not a bad scent at all, but I don’t care for the style. Others may well appreciate it.

A slightly disappointing attempt to harmonize a collection of inspiring ingredients. Whilst I enjoy the slightly bittersweet edge that fig fragrances often convey, there has to be depth and at least a little potency. Sadly, it errs too much on the side of caution, and fails to maximise the tantalizing accords it produces. Figue Amere probably has a lot to say for itself, but it simply cannot get the message across.
