    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, Armani Prive' Nuances,
    Armani Prive' Bois d'Encens, Ermenegildo Zegna Indonesian Oud, Essenza de Zegna, Amouage Beloved Man, Fahrenheit Le Parfum, Dior La Collection Couturier Vetiver, and Rasikh Syed Junaid Alam.

    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.

    Default Re: Favourite Fig

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

  13. #13

    Default Re: Favourite Fig

    Diptyque Philosykos if you want the fig & the tree.

    For the fig alone try the Heeley.

    Default Re: Favourite Fig

    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.
