Weak fig
Oooh figs!
... oh no, forget it... you probably already know me well enough by now, so you know that I am totally into certain scents. There is of course tea, citric scents and of course figs. Besides, you know I'm into Star Wars, Batman and other nerdy things. Oh and... you know (and that's why you keep rolling your eyes) that sometimes I find the ladies here to bite into with great scents, but I would still like to run away from nervousness before the ladies, especially if I'm supposed to test women's scents :D
You also know that I am single, you know that I can scream here easily hysterically and and and and :D

But I'm sure there are some who don't know me here yet, right? You there, in the second row, you don't know me, do you? All right, let's start again... argh, no! Just read upstairs and you know I'm a freak... so, now that we've sorted this out, I'm finally getting the scent. Of course it smells like figs :DD
Ooooh, you know I like figs! Aaaargh... again I said that. But once caught in this loop, you never come out again! :DD

... oh dear, I shouldn't have mentioned the nerdy things, now the newbies think I'm freaks too, arghhhh! I'll just test the scent. And go cry a little afterwards. But just a little...

The fragrance:
The fragrance clearly begins with the fig, but a quite green and therefore unfortunately also a somewhat stuffy fig, which I personally, despite my love for figs and fig scents, like a little less than the fig notes, which smell sweeter or at least less stuffy. But that's not bad, because the stuffness doesn't last long and the scent is mixed with nice green scents (nevertheless there are more beautiful fig notes! :DD).
That's odd, but I'm in so much trouble with the peach. Usually a very easy to recognize fragrance, I smell it here weaker than most describe it here. Well, as is so often the case, scent perceptions are different (mine are right, yours are wrong!) Mu ha ha ha,... does that sound very arrogant? :DD).
In the background you can smell flowery notes, but you can't really identify them. Later you can still smell figs, which are now even less stuffy, but still seem a bit dry. A light musk note emerges and gives the fragrance a (very slight) sweetness.
Further the scent hardly changes and remains so until the end.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The charisma is unfortunately quite low... it will hardly be smellable for others shortly after spraying on, unless you press the fragrance carrier gaaaaanz firmly. A short while later the fragrance is almost body-hugging.
Accordingly, the durability is also low. It lasts about four hours, but after that there is hardly anything really left of the scent.

The bottle:
The bottle is rectangular, transparent and therefore very simple. The label is at least round and brings variety to the otherwise almost always rectangular labels of most fragrances. The lid is black and cylindrical. Not special and rather functional.

Okay, the scent's not bad. Yes, you can see that I am not really enthusiastic about the scent, but it is not bad. It smells green and like figs, but there are fig scents where the fig note (the whole scent) smells much better (e.g. Philosykos by Diptyque, Fico di Amalfi by Acqua di Parma, Figuier Eden by Armani, Debaser by D.S. Durga or Fico d'India by Tuttotondo etc...).

In addition, the fragrance is unfortunately still extremely weak, it disappears quickly and will be hardly or only for a very short time with a smellable. Therefore it is suitable at most as a loose daily smell, but as I already wrote, there are better and (possibly also more favorable) smells for it.
Honestly, I'm used to much better things from Parfumerie Générale. So you don't have to have tested them, even if you like the cute figs like me :D
