Green undergrowth and a fair price
Great – a perfume cheapie cites expensive niche fragrances and has nearly the same quality!

Macchia Mediterranea is all about fig leaf. Perfume aficionados are acquainted with this note – it is sometimes used in niche perfumery. Fragrances with this note are a class of their own that has not reached the mass market so far. You come near the green scent of fig leaf – not fig - if you pick fresh leaves from a garden bush and grind them with your fingers.

Since fig trees grow under southern skies, fig leaf may count as a particular Mediterranean kind of freshness. The name Macchia Mediterranea may not be inventive, but it fits.

Macchia Mediterranea cribs – from the best known representative of this type: Philosykos by Diptyque. There, the fig leaf is compleately focussed on, and it is only accompanied by some acerbic notes. The same does Macchia Mediterranea. Personally, I am not so fond of it – the freshness of the fig leaf should not be unfurled, it should get contrasted by something different. But this is purely a matter of personal taste.

I know Philosykos or the more tender fig leaf perfumes by L'Artisan Parfumeur have their followers. Good that Monotheme now offers an inexpensive alternative. 100 ml are less than 30 €, and for this price you do not have to compromise a lot. The fig leaf note is not so much more discreet as in the Diptyque fragrance. And the only average longevity can easily be condoned.

Macchia Mediterranea is something that you can easily pick up - especially, if you are not willing to pay the full niche perfume price for this after all very special type of scent.
