An interesting perfume that doesn't very much resemble its name. The fig, if you can even call it that, lasts for only a minute or so and most closely resembles Womanity's "fig-inspired" candy note, as opposed to anything that would normally pass for fig in a perfume. Instead, Figue-Iris is more of a bright sweet mix of violets and Guerlain's favorite cherry candy note. It's those ionone violets that have a waxy suede undertone, so the whole thing kind of smells like cherry/violet lipstick. The iris is subtle, fusing with the waxy suede notes to give a "perfumey" maturity to what otherwise would have been a fruity floral.
