Reviews of Philosykos Eau de Parfum

Owned this one for a few years. Forgot to review this gem. That was a big mistake. Very authentic fig smell. Perfect for fall and winter wear. Best fig scent I've ever smelled!

Really, the genius of Philosykos is the realization that a mix of coconut and taragon somehow ends up smelling like fig (which doesn't have an essential oil or actually much of a smell until it's cooked). It's quite crazy that, through some kind of smell illusion sorcery, the combination smells both green and fruity.

This mix is supported by a milky sap smell and quite a bit of salt, which is suppose is there to subconsciously call to mind warm Greek ocean air.

To be honest, I don't really enjoy wearing Philosykos, but still recognize is as a great perfume. So an enthusiastic thumbs up, but not really my style.

Firstly, I will say that this is not my style.

Now I have got that out of the way I will add that this is a fragrance of the highest quality. Much like Nobile 1942, Diptyque use some of the finest ingredients in the business. I always find that with Diptyque there is a certain hygienic quality to their fragrances. They always smell so clean and pure.

Anyway....What you get up front is fig. It's one of the most realistic fig notes I have ever encountered. Just behind it in the slight distance is a peach note. It's not the flesh of a peach but almost like the stone of a peach. In the mid and dry down there is a woodsy coconut vibe and maybe some white floral's/powder?? There is a slight resemblance to Carnal Flower.

Comes across as quite stunning and totally original.

(Review for Eau de Parfum)

This is a really fantastic green fragrance that smells exactly like an unripe green banana peel. I was quite astonished and amazed at how evocative the scent of this fragrance is to a banana peel (not the banana itself, but the peel). Perhaps fig leaves smell like that? I actually don't get much fig at all in the fragrance. It's just very green smelling. Sillage is moderate (on the ligher side) while longevity is also moderate (nothing special).
