    Marc Jacobs for Men by Marc Jacobs

    There's precious little to be said about this one that hasn't been opined before. Starts off fairly fruity (in a non-citrus way, ala pears or other tropical fare) and then goes into figgy mid-notes and ends with a standard cedar finish.

    I find it less rich and syrupy than Ferragmo's original for men, which has more spice and is a bit more masculine. Kinda reminds me of L'Homme (YSL) with a more masculine, less-floral, and less synthetic approach. Or an Allure, minus the longevity and price tag. A second application of this really brings out the bergamot and some pineapple/coconut notes.

    I actually like this 'cause it's light on the fig and I don't really consider this a fig scent, but rather a light office scent for all seasons. If you need fig-in-your-face, you need Jo Malone, L'artisan, Diptyque, et. al.
