  • Your favorite FIG scent?

    Hi, it's my 1st new thread as I just discovered this forum today

    I'm looking for a just-perfect, nice, subtle fig scent... Was reading lotsa good reviews on Diptyque Philosykos and some mix reviews on L'Artisan Premiere Figuier in MUA...

    So I really need your opinions... descriptions... rants/raves, whatever that may helps

    For reference, my HG fragrances are TRISH MCEVOY #3 Snowdrop & Crystal Flowers, BVLGARI Petits et Mamans...

    TIA, gurls!!

    I will say go for L'Artisan's! I've always thought that Diptyque's Philosykos is lovely but after testing L'Artisan's Premiere Figuier (PF) . I'm in

    PF is a creamier version than Philosykos which is very green. I love the drydown. The drydown is a surprise. Thought rich and creamy, this mellows into a fresh vanilla with a tinge of wood on my skin. Simply makes me smile. Then again, gals here know I adore anything woodsy

    However, I will say get both Fig scents. They are very different on drydown and I really love both. Not helping here, ya?

    There's also Premier Figuier Extreme which is not available here in Sg which is arousing my interest in Fig scents as well.

    Top notes: Gorse bush flowers, bush peach, figtree leaves
    Middle notes: Sandalwood, almond milk, Fresh fig
    Base notes: Stone Pine, coconut milk, dried fruits

    If you love Fig, try scoring a sample of Slatkin Black Fig and Absinthe. heard so much about this. I can imagine this to be dark and mysterious but medicinal/herb-y because of the absinthe in it.

    Good luck in finding that perfect Fig scent!

    Cheers!

      I agree with Rac's take on philosykos. It's a "green" fig scent that does not change much from initial application to dry down.

      I find that PF is more coconutty which i can't take. So it's Philosykos for me

                      hey Teiko,

                      Can you also check for me if they bring in Figure Amere by Harris Miller?

                      Thanks so much!

                        Confirmed that the L'Artisan's Premier Fig and Vanilia is in but dont have Figure Amere by Miller Harris.

                        Diptyque Galliano Candles is also in! 1 piece left at Tangs and 10 pieces at Raffles

                          Teiko, I know they do have Premiere Figuier but do they have Premiere Figuier Extreme? Just to double confirm.

                          No Figure Amere.

                          Thanks, gal!

                            Yup Rach, they have Premiere Figuier Extreme which I tried last night, Mure de Musc Extreme and Amber Extreme. All of the Extreme has arrived

                            But Jean was telling me that probably Premiere Figuier Extreme and Mure de Musc Extreme will only be sold at a later date cos they still have some administration things to do on them before they can put them up for sale. But price range will be around $100+

                            HTH
