Reviews of Premier Figuier

Musty, milky, and greenly vegetal-fruit on opening. It quickly developed into an artificial sandalwood fragrance, overpowering the verdant and jammy, deep fig. It’s still there, just muted next to some aged flowers and almond powder. If the titular note would stay present throughout and have a backbone, I’d like it more.

This has been lauded as one the most loved figgy fragrances...I’m simply not feeling the hype and will leave the superlatives to those who are in love. Longevity is so so, about 3 hours. Sillage was moderate.

Singularly focused on evoking its subject matter, Premier Figuier offers up a green, earthy, bitter, salty, sour take on fig that becomes increasingly milky as it sits on skin--which is to say, a very realistic take on a fig tree--without the ornamentation the fig note is so often buried under to make it less polarizing.

Premier Figuier is refreshing and subdued and intricate, with discreet presence and limited longevity (five hours or so).

A fairly unimpressive fig, and I would have given it a neutral score but I detected a particular sour milk note which I recognised as one of the very few perfumery ingredient smells that I detest. There is a strange dusty matting (almost jute like) note in the dry down which shouldn't be there either.

After a less than inspiring opening, a rather disappointing end. Shame.

A gorgeous figtree, obviously, with all its milkyness, fruitiness, bitterness, sweetness and greenness. But a figtree anyway.

A generally nice scent, and the sandalwood drydown lasts a long time without becoming overwhelming (as sandalwood can on my skin). The initial burst of fig is lovely. However, you can get pretty much the same scent from Pacifica's Mediterranean Fig for a fraction of the cost.

The woody-milky-earthy tones at play here make me think of a prettier version of genmaicha. Not the kind of scent I'd sport but this is an undeniably well-represented fig.
