Very helpful Review 6  
I told you guys..
... that spring is coming. And summer, of course. That it's finally getting warmer. Tried to comfort you because you kept whining here that it would be raining and cold all the time (well, today it's actually raining a lot again, but still... :D). But you never believed me and stared at me in disbelief when I arrived more and more with fresher scents, just to report about such summery scents.

And now? Now it's warm (as I said, aside from today's rain...), for the most part anyway,... tsss... so don't say I didn't tell you. But you guys are always whining, as we all know. Hence, I can see it coming that you guys will soon be whining that it will be TOO HOT in the summer, tss... what whiners all.

But there is also a solution for hot days fragrance-wise: Namely such fresh and loose scents like this fragrance here! Bad luck, however, if you are not necessarily on figs and something too simple scents should stand, but you should try it in any case times, I think... :D

The fragrance:
The scent starts immediately with a nice and very authentic fruity fig, which gives off its unmistakably beautiful, but every now and then also quite slightly dry or stuffy scent. However, it is loose and light (and especially green) and just fits into the summer as well as a Parfuma in the madhouse!
He he, well anyway, the just mentioned stuffy immediately subsides, and the fragrance continues to smell like figs, and I must say, the scent is extremely reminiscent of Philosykos by Diptyque.
The scents of grape leaf and crocus mentioned in the top note, however, I can hardly perceive...
The fig smells quite long alone, only in the base come hints of woods. But otherwise it remains so and it does not change much more. The fragrance has turned out very simple, but also beautiful.

The sillage and the durability:
The sillage is at best below average and therefore unfortunately not very strong. You have to stand very close to the fragrance maniacs to be able to perceive the fragrance on them.
Therefore, the shelf life is also not particularly long, but rather fleeting... well well, so four to five hours are indeed in, but at these times the fragrance is really only weakly present on the skin.

The bottle:
The bottle is hemispherical and has facets all over it, so it looks like a fruit that's been cut in half and peeled or something. It has a light green/yellow gradient and ends with a clear rectangular lid. Now isn't that special, but still looks quite nice.

Hmmm... my first sniff immediately told me: this is Philosykos by Diptyque! Hmmm.... how awesome!!! Because I love Philosykos! And yes, the scent here is indeed stated as a twin and I can only confirm that this scent here smells almost as exact as the great scent from Diptyque. Because even with Philosykos, you basically smell only the fig the whole time, from beginning to end, and it smells fresh and green and just beautiful.

So who always liked Philosykos, but found the fragrance, which is actually quite simple, a bit expensive, finds here at the much cheaper Italian Summer Fig a great and above all equivalent alternative!

Thus, the fragrance is a great summer scent. And yes, damn it, the summer COMES CERTAINLY!!! :D Even now in April, it's supposed to be unusually warm, even up to 30 degrees in some places!!! Even though it's supposed to have rained looooong loooong and a lot today.
And even if now between the beautiful, warm days should still be some cooler ones, it will be warmer. Hot, really really hot! Puuuuh.... :D
Then you're lucky to have such loose and nice smelling fragrances that aren't heavy and are excellent to wear during the day, or even in the evening!

Oh yes, my rating reflects my preference for fig fragrances and is also so high because it really reminds me of the great Philosykos. If I were not a fig fan, the fragrance would land but because of its beautiful scent with me still so in the 7.5 - 8.0 range!
