Reviews of Caligna

It's nice in the summer, figgy, doesn't last long and does not project at all. I enjoyed using my sample, but would not purchase.

I love fig notes, leaf and fruit, but this combines with pine needles that keeps reminding me of pickles. Dry-down to pickles and fig.

Smells like a 90% match to Millesime Imperial on first spray. After drying, it is more figgy.

The herbal, piney scent of a Mediterranean hillside, with fig & a touch of citrus. The "jasmine marmalade accord" lends it a golden intensity, without making it obviously floral, & I think it's easily unisex. It has a similar feel to Goutal's Eau du Sud, although this one is greener, a little darker, & less citrussy. It also reminds me of Sisley's underrated Eau d'Ikar, almost certainly because of the mastic note. Two hours in, it softens considerably, & after five hours it's barely there, but this is another one that I'd happily reapply.
I think it would be wonderful in summer, & if I didn't already own a bottle of Eau du Sud, I might consider purchasing this one.

How utterly strange - Caligna opens immediately with a disappointing impression of the average Abercrombie-Zegna sort of woody citrus, and this impression lasts just long enough to set you up for the reveal - a chewy fig and airy jasmine duo duking it out over textures, with a dry, Lauder-like sage keeping score in the background. The effect is weird in that it is both breezy and tacky, like having a fan blow the scent of tree sap around the room. I don't know that I'd wear this too often but I will readily admit it's a worthy creation, and certainly one of the more memorable of the house's catalogue.

A pretty little perfume but nothing special. For the price there are much better things out there.
