Philosykos the infamous - those on a perfume journey eventually creep their way up to it, and the house. I'm going to go right out on a fragile limb here and start with the facts as I see them:

It's a linear, quiet, hyper-realistic fig fragrance. Until almost the dry down, it doesn't smell like a perfume, it smells like figs. Before you start the 'Oh, but …

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 …Read more

I loved the smell, but tired of it with about a quarter of the bottle left. In all that time, only received one compliment on it.

Figgy and clean, yet not too fruity. I wasn't a fan at first, but this is the kind of scent that grows on you.

I'm a big fan of unisex / genderneutral fragrances, and this definitely qualifies. Both my boyfriend and I wear it, in fact we tend to fight for it in the morning. Dyptique categorise the scent as "woody", and it is, but I would add it verges on herbal …

Beautiful. Gives off the entire fig tree, from its sharp bark and leaves to its succulent fruit. But it has absolutely no longevity or sillage that lasts longer than several minutes (perhaps the EdP is different). In fact, if I am wearing it to seduce someone, I apply it immediately before the encounter, and make my move once it's at its peak. To maximize its longevity, I layer it with …Read more

With all the rave reviews for this fragrance I thought I'd try it. I tested this in store and was immediately struck by deja vu. I couldn't immediately place the scent though. I've spent all night sniffing my arm and it's finally come to me.... The dry down smells just like the Mecca It's a pushover cuticle balm. I have a tub of cuticle cream that's several year old …Read more

Creamy, mildly coconutty, clean. It smells very natural, as if it's your natural scent, wears close to the skin. Nice and fresh so more of a summer fragrance. Longetivity isn't great but it's not terrible either but then it's different for everyone! I find it lasts longer on your clothes as well so just make sure you get some on your top.

If this perfume would last longer on me than 30 mins, this will be a 5 star review for sure!

I completely adore the scent, there's nothing quite like it. It's green, a little sweet from figs and smells so natural, like I rolled in a fig garden. It's totally me and it's my signature. And a complete shame it lasts less than an hour so only I ever smell it …

I fell in love with this and wore it when it first came out. It was my first niche fragrance. Before that I had worn Mitsouko and dyed my hair platinum blonde. My first perfume was Calyx. When you're young, you love fruit, and Philosykos holds a special place in my heart.

It does smell like rain, and it also smells a bit like pee. (There must be some unlisted jasmine in there.) …

This is a polarizing scent. Although I love green scents, this one didn't work so great for me. I was getting the dirt note, which was nice, but the fig was really overwhelming and then the green sort of creeps through while you're fighting the scent of coconut. I know all the fragrance people like it, and maybe I have to know fragrances better first and give it another try afterwards …Read more
