    Default A decent fig scent for the summer

    Hi all, i have just finished a bottle of Bath House's Spanish Fig and Nutmeg cologne. Much as i enjoyed this fragrance, i found its longevity to be minimal.
    I am looking for any suggestions as to a really nice Fig scented cologne, EDT with a bit more staying power!

    M Micallef Richard EDP from her private collection has a very pronounced fig note.

    Premier Figuier Extreme - L'Artisan. Categorised as a 'feminine' but I wore it comfortably -- definitely unisex imo

    Philosykos. I tested the recent parfum addition on Saturday and it adds a couple of hours of longevity, which was always the main problem.

    Here's a discussion from 2009 on the same thing
    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/233...trong-fig-note
    More mentions of:
    Acqua di Parma Fico di Almafi
    Hermes Un Jardin en Mediterranee
    Diptyque Philosykos

    And lots of love for Salvatore Ferragamo pour Homme, which I've never seen, but it sounds like it's now made it to the Discount Shop level, so maybe you could find it for under 15 quid somewhere.
