    Philosykos though there's a couple important ones that I haven't tried, particularly James Heeley Figuier and L'Artisans Premier Figuier.

    Either the Diptyque or the Heeley (undeservedly underrated, IMO).

    I chose L'Artisan, but I only have the Extreme version and haven't tried the original. I also love Dune pour homme and wear it often.

    A great one that you missed is Mark Jacobs Fig Splash.
    My current top 10 (subject to change) in no particular order:

    Rive Gauche Pour Homme
    Serge Lutens Cuir mauresque
    Carbone de Balmain
    L'Essence de Cerruti
    Zino Davidoff
    Essenza de Zegna
    Mugler Cologne
    Kouros Tattoo
    Insense' Givenchy
    L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme Eau Extreme

    From this list, Dune and Fico D'Amalfi would be my (almost equally high ranked) favorites.

    My favorite is Armani Privé Figuier Eden. Followed closely by the Heeley & Diptyque.

    How good is armani figuier? it sounds interesting but seems like it could lean on the more feminine side..

    Diptyque Philosykos if you want the fig & the tree.

    For the fig alone try the Heeley.

    for swap/sale:

    Anybody here tried both Philosykos and Un Jardin Mediteranee?

    These are the 2 I'm most interested in. I've tried them both but cannot remember how they compare side by side.

    Also I'll probably purchase either one of these..

    Costume National Homme. Albeit no fig note per se, overall smell is quite fig-like + spice and woods.

    Philosykos is green and natural, but it had some disgusting note in it, which I can't abide.
