Aqua Allegoria Figue-Iris
This fragrance opens with a sweet melange of vanilla, bergamot and grapefruit. The sparkly citrus notes vanish quickly to be replaced by powdery iris and creamy milky notes. So far I do not see any fig in this fragrance, unless it is candied fig to add sweetness. Eventually the fruit does comes through, though very muted in the background, and balances the sweetness of the other notes. Violet and vetiver are present in the accord, not as dominant notes, but as modifiers. Violet enhances the powdery quality, whereas vetiver adds a smoky finish to the whole. The fragrance stays sweet and powdery throughout its development until it vanishes after four hours.
