    Default Annick Goutal - Ninfeo mio

    Anyone try this yet? Any opinions?

    From Luckyscent:

    And Ninfeo Mio is truly a walk through a magical Italian garden. The bitter, almost raspy lemon top note veers into green with galbanum and fig leaf; the rounded milkiness of the fig fruit softens the blend until the lemon feels almost candied, crispy with crystallized sugar. Lavender, here, is treated as an aromatic note rather than as a star player, bolstered with absolute of lentisque, the resin of the Mediterranean mastic tree, whose combustible fumes have pine, lemon and hay facets. As the scent dries down, it settles into lemon wood wrapped in powdery musk.

    Depending on how sweet and powdery this is (hopefully very little), this sounds quite promising to me. Thanks for posting this note.

    Just ordered this today blind. I am sure from its description that I will like it. Can't wait for this to arrive.

    It is released in Paris
    I tried it and immediately loved it : the departure is heavy on citrus (green lime) and very fresh, nearly harsh and acid ; then green notes of fig and galbanum with a hint of coconut give the best rendition I ever smelled of figtree leaf , not the fruit itself but the green leaf you crush in your hand during hot summer as if you were under the figtree and that a gentle breeze was bringing to your nose that marvellous smell ; it's not milky and fruity as Artisan Parfumeur's Premier Figuier or Diptyque's Philosykos (which contain too much coconut ) ; the drydown mixes some sweet woods (lemon wood) with fig leaf and slighlty resinous notes
    It's a true masterpiece that perfectly evokes an italian / mediterranean garden in summer

    Luckyscent now carries Goutal. They have it now, too.

    I saw this on LS yesterday - love the new bottle color. The description saying it has some candied/sugary parts is actually encouraging to me. From the rest of the notes, it sounded like it would be more abrasive and more austere, like Eau de Sud.
