The opening is delicious: a very nice green fig, wth ust a dash if sweetness, and freshened up by bergamot with orange and a minimally spicy undertone. It is composed in a thoughtful and carefully balanced manner.

The drydown and an accord of tea - I get a mix if green and a weak black tea, accentuated y a slightly peachy fruitiness - not a fat and ripe fruitiness, but more on the elegant and crisper side.

A woody undertone leads into the base notes, where a well-crafted iris constitutes the central component on ny skin. An ambery backgound, a smooth and soft amber, merges with the woods and adds additional depth. All these fade gradually towards the end.

I get moderate sillage, excellent projection and a splendid twelve hours of longevity on my skin

With all the marketing of the Privé series as particularly exalted in quality and creative in concept, Figuier Eden seems to actually fit the bill. This is a lovely spring acent, well blended out of above-average quality ingredients whilst maintaining good structure. One of the more impressive Armanis amongst their releases over the last few years. 3.75/5.

I am attracted to fig like a magnet so I had to test this one! I am wearing it on a cool wet day in June and it perfectly matches the mood of the weather - dry, unripe fig with citrus/peppery notes and a subtle underpinning of powdery iris.

This is an extremely elegant edt, which could be worn by a man or a woman. It has great longevity but not such strong sillage. I shall be wearing it for summer weddings and for work. It won't offend anyone and may just charm them!

This beautiful Armani Prive’ creation is probably my current favourite of all the fig fragrances I have, just beating out Premier Figuier Extreme by L`Artisan Parfumeur.

I think the absence of any kind of coconut (which is usually paired with fig in fragrances) or sweet gourmand notes is what currently attracts me to this so much.

It’s very fresh, but not in the least what I would class as either aquatic or insubstantial. I can clearly detect the presence of orange oil, a little bit of tea and some fresh cut grass notes, but I do have trouble picking up any iris whatsoever.

The amber and pepper in the base are also clearly detectable and are what I think gives this its definite unisex appeal. While the sillage is light I have no problem at all with the longevity which does last well over 7 hours on my skin. It’s also a compliment getter if you care about such things.

This is going to get a lot of use from me in the coming Australia Summer.

Creamy, uplifting bouquet in the top notes of fig and bergamot.

The fig note persist through the progression, supported by iris and amber gently in the dry down.

It is a comfort scent.... perfect for when one is in the mood to mull on life, or just soak up the sun's rays on a cool morning.

Perfectly unisex!

A subdued fig, a fragrance that tries to "use" fig instead of being a fig. The fig lasts throughout but is most obvious in the opening, although the citrus notes are dominant there. The amber and iris mix in the dry down almost remind me of Armani's other woody dry downs. Can easily see this worn with a suit and a tie. Surprisingly long lasting for an EDT, especially on fabric.

I do have one criticism: There is something in this fragrance that resembles a menthol note. Not sure what it is but it could be caused by the tea accord interacting with the other notes. Still very worthy of a sample, IMO.

The fig note here is immediately recognizable, but it is handled subtly and with class.
The scent is dry, dusky, and green. It has peppery spice and at times hints of a fruity note which sometimes is like coconut (typical for fig) and other times something closer to peach/apricot. This is cool, airy, and translucent in style. It has a slightly woody dry-down. It wears well and has amazing longevity.
