    I am also curious on this one...
    Have you tried Bleecker Street yet? It has Cassis in it.
    VERY GOOD!

    It's nice, but it's not my favourite fig scent. It is sharper than Philosykos, for instance (and that is my favourite fig scent). It's nice layered with other scents - either violet/iris based (not from Jo Malone line) or Black Vetiver Cafe.

    Fig & Cassis is for people (like me) who don't really like Fig-based scents. The cassis softens and sweetens the very green leave notes. I usually get lot's of compliments when I wear it, and 2 friends of mine bought bottles for themselves.
    If you are looking for a very pure fig fragrance stick to Philosykos.

    Scents usually last ages on me, but non of the Malone's last any longer than 30 minutes and then I end up sneezing for an hour.

    Barry,
    It's just because all those strong Guerlains killed your nose. LOL

    No, what Prince Barry says is true.
    Like most Jo Malones, Wild Fig & Cassis lasts well on my clothes but not on my skin.
    Honeysuckle & Jasmin is the exception.
