Happy fig in salty sea air
My dear Mr. Gesangsverein [I'm curious what the translation machine for will do with this expression!] if someone had told me after my first experiences with fig scents (öööörgs!!!) that I would become a friend of this scent again! Whether it's because I've gotten used to the first unfamiliar scent or simply because the artifacts I tested first were less successful, who knows.

Anyway, after "Jardins du Kérylos" by Pierre Guillaume, "Philosykos" by Diptyque (so far my front runner despite strong competition) and "Puro Fico" by Officina delle Essenze, this is already the fourth fig water in a row that I like exceptionally well
The scent is called "burning fig tree", but I don't think of it as hot, despite the pepper and spices. On the contrary: a moderately cool Mediterranean morning breeze is blowing around my nose. The fragrance appears clear and bright turquoise blue, velvety (but by no means as fluffy or even muddy as bad fig scents sometimes come along), more masculine than feminine, more for the cheerfully romping youth on the shore than for the experienced old people, very fresh, a little green-grassy, spicy and salty-aquatic.

Actually, the fragrance is named after the tree, not the fruit, and although the fig is unmistakable, it also makes sense: "Figuier Ardent" is not a predominantly fruity fragrance. Citric, woody and very spicy notes (I don't feel the iris separately) make this elixir actually a fresh cologne and never a dull warm, sweet fig broth.

In its marine, salty, green and windy style, "Figuier Ardent" reminds me of the fragrance "Un Air de Bretagne" by L'Artisan Parfumeur, which I hold in high esteem - even if, with the exception of cedar, no ingredient from the declared pyramid can match.

A lot of aniseed and cardamom but sadly just a hint of fig leaf in the background. More sweet-spicy than green-fresh to me.
