Figues et Garçons fragrance notes

Reviews of Figues et Garçons

This fragrance should be supposed to be based on a fig-flowers accord on musks and light aromatic woods. The opening is bright and light, with green notes around a fig heart, diluted (and kind of disappearing) in an overal pleasant smell of clean wet clothes hanging outside in a sunny garden. Then it goes a bit more fruity while keeping it soapy and velvety. On skin I detect a more pungent pear-like opening. Now, if this may sound beautiful to you, add a massive dose of linalol or galaxolide or other synthetics that provide that pleasant – but clearly artificial and a bit cloying - "clean clothes"/"clean house" feel. That is how this *actually* smells – as others have already noted. Plenty of better fig scents around – Diptyque's Phylosikos is quite unbeatable to this.

This stuff smells horrible! It smells like burnt plastic dipped in rotten Kool-Aid that was stored in a rusty aluminum container and aged for 10 years. It also smells way too feminine for a guy. Also, this stuff would never attract me to a female if I smelled it on her. DO NOT blind-buy this one!

This particular fragrance opens up with a somehow sweet pear note that at the same time looses a little bit of it's personality given the co-appearance of an evident kiwi. After a couple minutes this fragrance acquires a green slight soapy aura but it disappears after some hours.

Fig in here is a mere supporting actor present only in a very faint leafy form which also disappears fast. If you wanna buy this fragrance just because of it's name, don't do it! There's almost nothing of figs in here, trust me.

Not completely awful but still quite typical perfume from this house. It smells very synthetic (in a bad way) and cheap.

The aroma itself has its moments, though. I like the green tart drydown; I imagine it (tries to) resemblance the smell of that kiwi. Very tart, bitter-green scent with sweet syrupy undertones.

I love the name but you know what..? This is not a fig fragrance even for starters. If something stands out from that list of notes, its definitely a kiwi. Tart, raw kiwi in fructose.
