My daughter, my mother and I all like it and we range in age from 17 to 84.
I had an interesting experience with that one after receiving a sample when I purchased my bottle of Assoluta. I loved the sample almost enough to want to purchase at least a decant for myself, but then a year or so later, I became preoccupied with Un Jardin de Mediteranee and after testing Philosykos and Fico di Amalfi (one on each wrist) I could not believe my sudden dislike of my former fig favorite. It seems that there is something pungent in Fico di Amalfi that eclipses the "decay" note everyone talks about in Mediterranee, and that makes Philosykos resemble a perfect fig in a dish of cream, by comparison (not that the latter is necessarily preferable to everyone). Nevertheless, your family enjoys it, and it was my first choice in figs at one point, so perhaps you are on to something in suggesting it after all. Thank you very much for you help!
