Infusion Organique BUDDHA'S FIG is a fine organic fig perfume with more of a woody than either a fruity or a leafy green demeanor (as in Jo Malone WILD FIG & CASSIS). There is also an ever-so-light touch of florality, but this is definitely a unisex creation from start to finish. The rose geranium serves more to smooth out the wood rather than anything else. The floral effect is very subtle here, unlike many perfumes in which rose geranium figures.
The opening of BUDDHA'S FIG has a bit too much lemongrass oil for my taste--so much so that it actually irritates my neck a bit, but once it dries down, this composition is really quite nice and ranks among the best fig perfumes I've tried. I actually prefer this combination of notes to both AP PREMIER FIGUIER and Hermès UN JARDIN EN MEDITERRANEE, which are in some ways similar... The sillage is on the medium-low side, and I find the longevity quite good for an all-natural perfume.
