Fig is my mother's favorite fruit so any time I smell them I remember her instantly. Just before leaving my house today I found a couple of figs in the kitchen, so it goes without saying that any perfume with this note evokes nice memories and a sense of calm and comfort. For some minutes, then I get dizzy and get a headache. I'm very sensitive to fragrances and have to be careful not to put on too much or wear a very strong perfume. Still, I persisted and finally found Dyptyque's Philosykos EdT. I had a learning curb with Philosykos. To me, is the only fragrance with fig as the top note that I can actually wear and enjoy all day. It has a good balance between sweet, green and wood notes to make it easy to use for any occasion, day or night. I do think this is more suitable for summer, because the sweetness of figs is very reminiscent of warmer months and sunny days (at least to me). I still wear it during winter, to feel a little bit of warmth. The notes are: (top) fig tree lead, green fruit, (middle) fig tree wood, milky sap, (base) white cedar and musk. I have no problem with the longevity of this perfume, but if that is an issue there's always the Eau de Parfum. I would buy it again, but for very personal and sentimental reasons so it's not a very objective review. So if this has any notes that interest you, try both versions (EdT and EdP) first and see how it wears during the day.

Late to the party on this fragrance, wish I'd known about it earlier in my life, but I so enjoy using it. I have it in several forms and just ordered a bottle from Costco - shocked to find it there - for less than $90 for 2.5oz. Love the perfume oil, the roll-on, and also have this in soap form.

At first I was incredibly underwhelmed. I wanted a soft, warm kitten like, close to the skin scent with a maybe a little clean musk thrown in to make it extra snugly and close to the skin as promised. Well, uh no. What I did get an hour later in the dry down, a surprise! A freshly washed and swaddled bundle of joy and not in a tacky Johnson and Johnson's/ Love's Baby Soft way. Yep, want to smell like an actual spanky new baby, this is definitely for you. Not for me but hey, I am impressed. In capturing this specific essence in it's subtlety it is a bit of a masterpiece. This would make a lovely first perfume for a very special little girl who has a Mommy that doesn't want her to smell like a plastic fruit basket or Strawberry Bubblicious. Me, I'll stick with my good old TAM DAO for layering and continue chasing the musk dragon of long ago before the ban and synthetic reforms.

One of my top 3 favorites. This is a feminine woodsy fragrance with a hint of freshness. Hard to describe but it's smokey and delicate without being cloying like some other woodsy scents out there (Santal 33, I'm talking about you.) To me, this is a gentler more delicate version of that. Good for day or night. I have the EDT.

I get green plant notes, ozone and ink. It's a light, sheer, nice scent, but it's not amazing on me. I wouldn't invest in a whole bottle, but I'd sure use it up if it was gifted to me. Pretty, light, useable.
