A witty name for a fig-based scent, also a reference to the opera Marriage of Figaro.
This is a good scent. Starts with a fresh, very realistic and pleasant grapefruit note, combined with pepper and spice. The heart is green. The cilantro (coriander leaves) and clover give a perky, leafy, slightly crunchy note. The merest hint of pine is evident. The scent settles into fig, framed by green apple and plum fruit. The fruit provides an interesting backdrop to the fig. The scent is well blended and holds everything in balance. A refreshing scent for the summer, it is not sweet or heavy. Not remarkable, but nice. Certainly a very safe bet for daytime and office wear.

Great parfume. Well built and original. It has got all the notes I like, all my favourites. It would be my perfet parfume had it only more feminine allure.
An elegant and versatile fragrance. An aura of vetiver and wood q surrounds the opening of plum and fig, the heart is also fruity, delicately spicy. The wood of this composition brings me to something oily, resinous, gives comfortable feel.
This one opens up with vetiver mixed specially with woodsy notes, and when I say woodsy I want to say green
pine. There's also a fruity accord attached here given by a not so well distinguished at the beginning but growing through time plum note.
Figs do appear in this fragrance but they're mixed with plum like in a drink, and it is a sweet one, not the kind of figs present in philosykos.
The drydown is a very pleasant sweet aura of figs/plum wheres the base shows us the vetiver again but here it is embracing a woody accord.
Well this opens with a fruity vetiver accord, I'm picking up the citrus with apple a little pine with a big dose of figgy plum all mixed together.
This has the fruit of the forest vibe, its aromatic and balmy and the figgy plum is now dominating the show. It's unequal and not the type of scent I usually go for though it is nice.
You know those soft drinks that have different fruits mixed together you can buy well that is the vibe I am getting from this. You can smell the apple within the figgy plum mix. I do not know weather to drink it or wear it.lol
To sum up a fruity vetiver with a big dose of figgy plum with the scent of a apple in the mix. It's smells more like a soft drink than something you would wear though it does smell good in a fruity sweet way. I get seven to eight hours longevity from this one.
