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:...

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...

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....

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Philosykos is my favourite Diptyque so far and one of my two favourite fig scents (the other one is Fleur de Figuier by Roger & Gallet) The opening is very fresh and green, a very realistic fig...

Everytime I went to the perfume counter I found myself constantly trying Philosykos and loving it, so I finally bought a bottle of the EDT. It is a very fresh, green, and sweet scent. I smell green...

This is the most delicious fig scent out there. I am on my second bottle now having graduates from the eau de toilette to the new eau de parfum in the grey glass bottle. It smells the same but is...

I love this scent when it's first applied, but the drydown turns awful on my skin. First on, Philosykos is like walking through a garden in the cool morning after a rainy night, where everything...

I'd been dying to sniff this after hearing so many rave reviews about this, and the Diptyque candles. It's difficult to "rate" a perfume as everyone has their own likes and dislikes to smells, much...

Just lovely! It reminds me of Marc Jacobs Men. It smells like a bed of fresh leaves and ends like a bit of coconut scent, and so subtle. I never smelled fig before, but I'm surprised. I bought...

This is the most peculiar scent I've ever encountered. My first thought when I tried it on was "Rain! It smells like rain!". It's a garden-fresh fall scent, which reminds me of crushed leaves and...

What a gorgeous, fresh, green opening! It's like the smell of trees after the rain. The fragrance develops into a creamy, coconutty, slightly sweet, but still green fig, before drying down to a...

I really wanted to love this and made a special trip to try it, but frustratingly, with my body chemistry it just read as coconut. Nothing else. I walked around for 3 hours to give it a chance...

Lovely dry figue scent. A bit milky and comforting. Very clean. I use it a special occasions, when I have showered and want to feel special. I still don´t know what men think about it, but it is...
