Getting ready for blk fri/cyber mon, and need some ideas.
My wife doesn't like vanilla (other than in tobacco vanille so far,) powder, or aldehydes.

Un jardin sur le toit
Philosykos sample on the way as she particularly likes fig right now.
Any suggestions are appreciated!

AdP Blu Mediterraneo Fico di Amalfi
Seems like everyone around me who has smelled this, liked it.
Jardin de Kerylos by Perfumerie Generale could be nice but she would need to test it first. Fico D'Amalfi is a nice idea, and safer I think.
I think Fico di Amalfi would be a great one to try too. 30R is right, everyone seems to like this one. If you are buying samples before buying a whole bottle try Keiko Mecheri Un Jour d'Ete. The notes are Sicilian lemon, petit grain, mandarine, floral accord, aromatic accord, amber and musk. I was greatly impressed with this one last summer. Or you could try Dior Escale aux Marquises, which is really nice.
If she likes fig, please check out Sonoma Scent Studio Fig Tree. I *much* prefer it to Philosykos. It's not vanillic or overly milky -- it's woody, a bit green at the top, and just wonderfully fleshy and dark. It is simply magnificent. Added bonus -- Laurie's prices are very reasonable and you can get a small bottle without breaking the bank.
On a budget, please try Buddha's Fig by Infusion Organiques -- they have about 6 products available from parfum1, not always though.
Arran Aromatics Fresh Fig is very overlooked but it is a nice and fresh though not exceedingly sweet take on the fruit.
And finally, DiPalomo has a wonderful line of Wild Fig and Grape -- I went through a cake of soap and a bottle of hand lotion, but they have more products available.
30R's FIco di Amalfi is a very nice suggestion, a favorite in the summer time, tends to lack in the longevity department but all depends on the particular skin/wearer.
Please forgive my zanza language ignorance - what does "blk fri/cyber mon" mean?
Molinard Fleur de Figuier is another great fig scent, quite affordable. It's fresh with gentle flowery accents.
L'Artisan Premier Figuier is also a good one but more on the tropical side of things.
Cyber Monday is the Monday after Thanksgiving, when online vendors run major sales.
Thank you for al the suggestions! Looks like I will have to go on luckyscent for a few, myperfumesamples for others.
Might just blind buy fico with the recs and reviews I've read- plus it is pretty affordable. Don't worry, I will be trying them all eventually; so no wasted help.
Mandy Aftel does a fig with no fig in it if you want a gentle one.
