    Default Something similar to Marc Jacobs?

    Well, this has become one of my absolute favorites to wear. I love the combination of the fig and very slight mustiness it has. It makes me feel like I'm outdoors. I have Philosykos, which I like, and know about L'Artisans Premier Figuier, which I'm hoping to try soon. I was wondering if there is anything else simialr to it, sort of a green, woodsy, outdoors-y type scent. Doesn't even have to be a fig scent, though I would prefer it to have it.

    Thanks!

    Davidoff's Good Life and Salvatore Ferragamo Pour Homme are the other two strong long lasting fig leaf scents, in a similar vein to Marc Jacobs.

    L'Occitane Vetyver has a similar feel to it. lasts all day on some people, short lived on others. It seems to be available on the L'Oc webnsite last time I checked, but not in the US Stores. See my (MisterK) and others review on the mama board: http://www.basenotes.net/ID26121821.html.

    As for fig scents the only one I find myself wearing is Dune for Men, but I don't think it is similar to Marc Jacobs.

    There have been box sets of Marc Jacobs at TJ Maxx recently.

    I agree. The SFPH also has a lot of wood in it. Very interesting scent. Personally I think Philosykos is the best in this category.
    Top 3: London Gentleman, Blackbeard's Delight, and Sex Panther. (It works 60% of the time, every time.)

    Thanks for all the suggestions so far. If anyone else has opinions that would be great.

    I really think that with Philosykos and MJ you have got the best two of the bunch. My friend is nuts for the L'artisan ("the only TRUE fig...blah blah&quot but I disagree. Never tried SFPH though.
