Comptoir Sud Pacifique is "specialized" in tropical fragrances (the target the brand's performers tend to priviledge). Sun lotion? Effectively I detect a touch of Coppertone-like coconutty-milky vibe but the dry down develops in a wet and almondy-figgy (just slightly figgy) way that is pleasant, moderately sweet, just slightly balmy, averagely dry and barely resinous. The Comtoir Sud Pacifique's gourmand or semi-gourmand concoctions (think also to Vanille Extreme, Amour de Cacao or Coco Extreme) are cozy yummy odours more than "accomplished and textured" fragrance with a proper evolution (but this is not enough to define those like foams or body lotions). The aroma in here is refreshing and exotic with a wet milky consistency (keeping its watery freshness till the end also due to a nice humid coconutty pulp). I like the sense of fresh coconutty cleanliness Coco Figue arouses, especially in its first stage. The figgy note keeps to be more notable along the barely balmy dry down. Really dreamy and summery scent (far dreamy oceanic islands conjuring). Frankly I don't detect the white flowers. An un-textured tropical smell to be enjoyned drinking a cocktail somewhere under a palm.
Absolutely dreadfull stuff. There's a fine line between smelling of fragrance, and smelling of literary sun lotion.
It is certainly some feat for one company to create so many usable fragrances for the warmer months. Coco Figue has a luscious, cool and wet character, with the coconut note being a useful diversion from what would be a rather sticky and dense fig presence. On those days of genuinely oppressive heat, I used to enjoy the fragrant relief of Creed's Virgin Island Water, but in future, Coco Figue might be a more entertaining option
Yes it's sweet but it's not a gourmand; it has a dry sweetness and they've managed to give it some air. I get a lot of coconut, not much fig. Pleasant vanilla drydown. A summery, suntan-lotion-y kind of scent.
