    An interesting perfume that doesn't very much resemble its name. The fig, if you can even call it that, lasts for only a minute or so and most closely resembles Womanity's "fig-inspired" candy note, as opposed to anything that would normally pass for fig in a perfume. Instead, Figue-Iris is more of a bright sweet mix of violets and Guerlain's favorite cherry candy note. It's those ionone violets that have a waxy suede undertone, so the whole thing kind of smells like cherry/violet lipstick. The iris is subtle, fusing with the waxy suede notes to give a "perfumey" maturity to what otherwise would have been a fruity floral.

    All in all, this isn't what I really wear, but it's well done enough to deserve a thumbs-up. It's strong without being loud, youthful without being dumb, and wise without losing its sense of humor. I would have liked a better base - it's only got some fading vague woods under the iris and suede, where a full luxurious vanilla/musk/sandalwood base or even some Guerlinade would have taken something good and made it great.

    this is derived from Insolence EDP, its just milder versin to which they added some herba fresca, to give it a hint of fig leaves :)...its likable, not demanding, and long lasting, becasue i am sure they made it from the insolence :)

    its wearable, did not give it top rating becasue i did not try it but once and i love Insolence EDP

    This is a nice, sweet, feminine perfume, but I give it a neutral rating because it doesn't deliver its promise of a fig note like L'Artisan Premier Figuier or Diptyque Philosokos. For a pure, green, sappy fig note, those two fragrances are the places to go. However, if they were too dramatic and edgy for you, Aqua Allegoria Figue Iris would suit the bill. The opening is citrus, and at this point it is closer to being a grapefruit perfume than anything else. After the citrus wafts away, the fig note emerges, green and pretty, and tempered by iris. Please note that iris lovers would be better served by the likes of The Different Company Bois de Iris or Serge Lutens Iris Silver Mist with their genuine, rooty iris notes. The Guerlain iris note is the classic "powder" scent found in many women's perfumes. All in all, this is a perfumer's creative version of fig and iris, very pretty and feminine, but not the green and earthy variety that I prefer.

    I live in Florida so the weather do not allow me to wear deep fragrance.
    This one is just perfect. It is balance, soft, fruity and sweet but not to much.
    It gives energy and makes you in a good moon.

    Too bad it disapears very quickly...

    the Fig by Guerlain ...
    the only fig i know without coconut
    the fruity and green notes of the fig are associated with light milky notes
    the association with iris makes it very elegant and powdery , very feminine and quite gourmand scent

    I count Acqua di Parma’s Fico di Amalfi as my perfect fig, but this is the perfect fig à la Guerlain. For starters, thank goodness, it’s not green. It’s juicy. It makes me want a tropical drink with a parasol in it. And once the iris comes in, it puts me in mind of some delicious sweet fruit candy. Succulent for summer.
