I love it! It reminds me somehow of Eclat D'arpege, but not the first notes, the last ones! But this parfume has pretty strong staying power unlike for LAnvin eclat, I like that I can smell it on myself all day. it is fresh and unique

My ratings don't properly reflect how much I like this scent just because I cannot leave aside all the other "real" fragrances I rated before. But this is also why I question myself now how much of a fragrance "snob" I am. Last weekend only I went out of Lutens' shop in Paris with - finally! - Iris Silver Mist (for the deadly price of Eur 130 of course) and since then during the week, I tried, again, to understand this fragrance that puzzles me since so long and which I love but find it hard to grasp and wear. But this weekend, I step in a pharmacy and waiting in line I sniff Fleurs de Figuier, just to pass the time. Result, instant addiction, 2 bottles snapped on spot and since then I am almost bathing myself in this scent, so easy, so beautiful, so light, so happy, so sunny vacation bliss without any mysterious dark side that my Lutens(es) and "Blacks" and all the other "serious stuff" are quitely "forgotten" on their shelf. This is pure bliss in a bottle, but yet not that simple, creamy figue leaves sprinkled with concentrated citrus caramel, one blackcurrant added on top and lightly dusted by a few grains of dark wood. Of course, the name of the famous father of this scent, if you know it before trying it, may lead you to say "yes, surely this makes sense", but my own conclusion is, famous father or not, you definitely dont always need to go in exclusive niche fragrances or old-world ones or ones with prices that ask for a savings plan: some are just there to be enjoyed and loved on spot, without reason, like a sunny day.

Fleur de Figuier is the sweetest Roger & Gallet so far. Tried it today and sprayed 4-5 times, 2 hours later it's still noticeable but doesn't project much.
At first I got lots of sweetness and mandarin but it was more dry than juicy. Later I could really detect the cedar and fig leafs added to the composition, they are more accentuated than the actual fig IMO.
Overall I think it's a well made sweet fruity summery cologne with woody and herbal elements. I like it.
