Fig salt on the skin
First, I strongly perceive cardamom and tart tea vibes. That can put you off a little - but then comes more and more strongly the fig note to the fore. Beautiful.
The fig in this fragrance has ripened for a long time in sunny regions.
A sweet, juicy and ripe fruit. In addition, a slightly salty note mixes. Hmm. interesting! Although iris and vetiver are present, but I perceive them rather subliminally.
Fine sandalwood and tonka bean give the fragrance something sensual noble.
Gris Charnel has a creamy character that runs through the entire course and with time becomes close to the skin (The name fits :))
From my point of view wearable all year round, no matter what season you are in.

Especially in the openning Gris Charnel has corners and edges, exactly that makes him so special and irresistible. The packaging and the bottle are also very beautiful! Like a hardcover book. The fragrance has not let me go, just had to buy it:)

A small drawback: the relatively short projection. (About 4-5 hours)

My new signature
I'm not usually a big fan of fig scents, but I am of soft-creamy perfumes. This one is both soft-creamy and beautiful in the fig. It has absolutely NOTHING that bothers me. The cardamom and tea go incredibly well together, blending into a velvet scent tail of fig and vanilla.... Simply dreamy!
By the way, I get non-stop compliments on this one, especially when I mix it with Zadig&voltaire's "this is her". This combo definitely has a strong addictive factor...
And if it's worth buying this fragrance? Well, I find it very suitable for everyday use and wear it for a year consistently, both in winter and summer. Since it blends nicely with the skin and doesn't scream like a monster and bother others with the sillage, it's an always-goer. But considering it's a niche fragrance for over 150€, I would go for similar fragrances next time. The philosykos vob diptyque is supposed to be very good.

Nice scent but with almost zero performance on my skin.
I got a sample to try. Love the scent and it’s quite unique but the performance is weak on my skin. Last only 4-5 hours and no projection at all. Was only skin scent from the start to the end. I saw reviews said it has great performance on many people. I think my skin chemistry doesn’t get along with this fragrance or this brand. I wish it works on me as I really love the scent. I do think everyone skin chemistry works differently with each perfume because I did find some fragrances perform differently on my skin while I see different feedbacks on other reviews so I learned to not blind buy any perfumes. Too bad this doesn’t work for me.

They allowed one more fig scent...
...move into my little collection. Today I got a bottling of this perfume from Madambjules (thanks again at this point, for the super fast handling) and of course I couldn't wait to sniff it...
Well...he is not as pleasing as the mainstream fragrances, which makes it difficult to take him to your heart right away. But if you give it time to unfold, you will be rewarded with a very interesting scent. It just needs time to unfold, similar to a butterfly...
The prelude smells to me more like a plum soaked around (although it is not included) and I wish this pregnant plum scent would last forever, but nooo, hardly druff...scho wiedr ford, as Schwob says...what appears is hardly fig, but too much sandalwood. The cardamom they could have dosed more homeopathic, the black tea makes it scratchy, which is a pity.
It takes me about 10-15 minutes until the scratchy something gives way to the powdery iris and yeah...now it gets interesting. The cardamon/tea team suddenly becomes softer, more rounded...and also the initial plum, which actually isn't a plum at all, because it's actually a fig, reappears...and only from this moment on, I like the scent....much later I smell the tonka bean out...I like tonka, but in this case vanilla might have been better...but nobody asks me...pfff...never mind...
What I personally miss in this fragrance is something milky...not creamy...milky it should be...it sounds weird, but it is...maybe Mrs. Kardamon and Mr. Tea with a shot of milk would not be so scratchy in the beginning. Nevertheless, the scent is very sophisticated and I can imagine it at a vernissage, an opera evening, a gala...now in autumn, when it gets dark again early and the colourful leaves fall...
