I'm trying this from a decant so can't really comment on packaging. While this doesn't compare with the ur-fig Philosykos, it's an interesting winter alternative. I'm getting a noticeable tobacco note coming through which reduces the overall greenness and freshness. It's quite pleasant.

It definitely smells like fig, not as green as Premier Figuier Extreme, which I own. Apart from the fig all I can catch is a hint of vanilla combined with a tobaccoish smell. Is this how the flowers of fig smell? Until I smell a real living fig flower my mental picture of this fragrance would remain that of a fig, still with a bit of its stem on, sitting on a few sheets of vanilla flavoured tobacco leaves.
IMHO a rather interesting combo. And the three main notes that I spotted works seamlessly together, but somehow I don't feel that they belong together.

For the moment, I cannot afford either Philosykos or Premier Figuier. Way too expensive. Since I absolutely LOVE fig frags, I stumbled upon this one during my search on the internet. It sells for $19.99 at Amazon.com (100 ml, EDT; it's s tester bottle so it's uncapped - who cares). I love, love, love it. It does smell like figs. It reminds me of my sister's orchard (she lives in the south of France). For an EDT it lasts quite a bit. It's sweet but green and fresh at the same time. I do recommend it.

if i could give this a 3.5, i would. i also said i wouldn't repurchase, but i'm not sure. i'm undecided about this fragrance. instead of figginess, i smell more grass and wildflower to this. dry grass, like walking through a field in late march or early april, with the snow all gone and the ground cool and muddy, the grass not fully green yet. i like this layered with vanilla and i think it would be nice layered with other things too - haven't experimented fully. the lasting quality is excellent and the blue molinard bottle is very pretty, and this was a great buy from perfumeport.com for under ten dollars. i'd like to try some other molinard provence scents as well.

First, this DOES smell like figs, or the accord commonly agreed to be figs. I can easily trace the line between philosykos, l'artisan figs, various fig products. Second, this scent privileges the wood aspect of the fig, plus a vanillic/ambric/musky sweetness in the base. It is primarily dry, however, with a long drydown and good lasting power. All that said, no, I wouldn't get another bottle, but not because of anything inherently wrong with this fragrance. The problem is that something about the note of fig doesn't work for me. I don't loath it, but I don't like it. If I HAD to wear a fig fragrance, this would be it. I've even voluntarily, with pleasure, put this on my skin, primarily because of it's woody dryness. But the fig note is there and while not aggressive, or pesky, it doesn't quite sit right with me. As with all Molinards, the packaging, quality, and overall production values supurb.

This is on my to-buy list. For now, I'm working on a sample.
This isn't overly figgy, but the fig is there, and it is a warm, gentle floral with a bit of green from the fig to my naive sniffer. I smell something like vanilla or caramel at the base.

I can't really wear Philosykos or Premier Figuier, although they are beautiful scents, they smell like someone else on me, but I can wear this fig. Its woodsy, green, and pretty, and it lasts a long time on me. The reason I can't give it a higher rating is the drydown, in which a powdery floral quality starts to dominate the fig notes, and it lasts forever. I prefer a cleaner drydown. However, I think it's worth trying.

Pleasantly surprised with this one, after ordering it unsniffed. To my nose it is a very green scent without being too sharp: leaves, grass, wood, soft, powdery floral and a slightly sweet, milky note. Interesting and familiar, just can't think of what I've smelled similar to it. It is certainly unlike anything else in my collection. I have never tried a fig scent before, so I can't compare it to any other one. It's fresh and clean and could be considered unisex. I do not get any cloying sweetness and even layer the Les Senteurs Vanille to sweeten it up - nice combo to my nose - because when I think of figs I think of the sweet ripe fruit.

This is a pretty, light and sweeter than most, fig scent. It's too nondescript for my tastes and had virtually no staying power. It might be nice for a very young girl just starting to experiment with fragrance.

I don't care that it doesn't smell like figs... it is one of my favourite scents, even though I don't own it (yet - how can I resist I wonder!) It has a bitter edge to its flower/leaves main flavour that keeps me interested and trying to figure it out... Quite unusual, but also fresh and easy to wear.

Well, this was a big disappointment, yuk! I was expecting a nice fig fragrance like Philosykos or Figuer. This smelled like some cheap, drugstore, extremely cloying, floral. They should have smelled this before giving it the final okay. Big thumbs down on this one.

As a collector of fig scents I was very curious about this fragrance. I have received a sample and as soon as I put it on I knew it is NOT the one. It doesn't smell like figs/fig leaves at all. There isn't green/woody scent to it but rather overwhelmingly sweet odor without any other note to balance the sweetness. I can't imagine to wear it without getting a headache. I don't really know how the blossoms of fig smell but I'm definitely staying faithful to the scents of fig leaves.
