This is an amazing fragrance and surprising depth for a Pacifica fragrance. It isn't as linear as some of their other scents and actually has some quite nice development. Opens as very green, leafy and fresh. Quickly moves to a green, creamy coconut before drying down to a mellow, warm fig. Lasts a long time on me, especially in my cleavage.
I particularly like this line because it's phthalate, paraben and petrol-chemical free. Makes me feel confident wearing around my young son.
I know, I'm in the minority here, but I tested this on me the other day, and just boldly sprayed it on me. OMG...I reeked. It was way too green of a scent for me the first hour. It finally settled down, but it still wasn't the kind of fig scent that I would like. Maybe as a shower gel kind of scent, but definitely not a perfume. If others enjoy this good, but I didn't. Oh well...
One of my many many Pacifica products and a surprising favorite. Its very green mossy woody smelling with a fresh fig note to keep it light. Seems to last longer and throw its scent much more than other Pacifica scents tend to. Also smells a bit more 'perfumey', but in a natural, non-headachy way. I really like it and so does my family. Great scent, great product, great company!
Really like the smell. Earthy and fresh and green. I have the solid perfume and the spray. The spray doesn't really seem to last much longer than the perfume on. Its only about the strength of a body spray so I apply a lot and go through it too fast. Will repurchase the solid scent though. I think it smells a bit better anyway.
My favorite Pacifica fragrance! I have this in both rollerball and solid formulations. They're slightly different from each other. The solid is very woodsy-mossy and the fig/fruit note is fleeting -- I sometimes don't notice it at all. The rollerball has a bright, sparkling "green" phase on application, very fresh and figgy, reminiscent of Philosykos. It dries down to woods and moss, but there is definitely a nutty note in there too, a dry hazelnut or walnut.
This doesn't last very long on me -- an hour for the solid, mmmmaybe three for the rollerball. Sillage is low. But the cost is also low and the packaging so goshdurn cute that I don't mind reapplying. I also appreciate the good ingredients and procedures they use at Pacifica, and I like being able to sample fragrances at Whole Foods during my ordinary errands. It won't be long before I own the whole line!
ETA: I just got the body butter and the body wash. For the curious, the body wash is the greenest, fruitiest formulation of this scent -- it really does smell a lot like Philosykos. So much so, in fact, that I may return it -- I don't get any of the lovely woodsy nutty moss that I enjoy in the perfume. The body butter is quite woody and I like it a lot. Here is the lineup of products, in order of woodsiness to fruitiness:
Solid Perfume (all wood & moss)
Body Butter (very woody & mossy, hint of fruit)
Rollerball (opens with fruit, dries down to wood)
Perfume Spray (fruit opening lasts longer, dries down to wood)
Body Wash (all fizzy green fig)
You would not ever guess that the solid and the body wash were the same fragrance if not for the packaging. Extremely different.
Oh my god! This stuff smells sooooooooo good! I love it. It's my new obsession. It has sweet fig, palm, cyclamen, and sandalwood. It has a very earthy and seductive scent. My boyfriend loves it. Everyone compliments my perfume.
I love this stuff. It's sweet but not very fruity, even though it's supposedly a fig fragrance. It really just reminds me of a garden, kind of heady but clean and fresh.
I realllly like the scent on this perfume! My only complaint is that it doesn't last long at all. This is my first time trying a solid perfume, so maybe this is typcial. But the scent itself is wonderful--different from your usual, fad perfumes but very pretty...maybe I will try to spray and see if it lasts better.
I love the scent! I am attracted to anything with fig in it and have tried many different blends over the years (Diptyque Philosykos, L'Artisan Parfumeur's Premier Figuer...others I can't even remember) and this one seems to me to be the truest "fig" scent without too much else getting in the way. It has pretty good staying power on me. This will definitely have a spot in my permanent fragrance rotation!
This is a very beautiful perfume, earthy, green,spiced, however
it dried down on my skin into something very synthetic and oily smelling, though it didn't last long at all. I'll have to try this one again on a pulse point by itself.
