What's going on here?!
This fragrance actually shocked me. A long time ago I got a sample,fell in love with it instantly, and it has been on my wishlist ever since. A while ago I got another sample and completely forgot about it until a few days ago when I sorted all my samples.
So yesterday I decided to give it wearing since I loved it so much. And god, it was horrible! Awful. Disgusting. I can't write a proper review as I simply had to scrub it after a good hour. It's the opening that almost killed me. Something extremely harsh and nose-burning. A very umpleasant bitterness. After a while some sweetness came in and morphed the fragrance into a very peculiar mix of eye-watering bitter hashness and something almost gourmand.
A totally new experience, to put it mildly. I didn't get any fig out of it. At least nothing like the figs I enjoy to eat. Not patchouli either, which is one of my favorite notes. The bitterness was very unique too. Nothing mossy there (that what my skin usually get bitterness from). When I scubbed it, it had softened up - but I admit I could never ever wear it again.
It's really strange as I know I adored it the first time, especially as my taste has evolved a lot since then. Back then I didn't like chypres, aldehydes, or anything challenging. I vas almost only into vanilla and wood.
A consfusing experience from a very confusing scent. No doubt it's good quality, but definitely not for me!

In the dark forrest...
... in the dark forest ...
... a large wild wolf with evil eye ...
... Back off! These are mine! ...
... the juice of a fig dripping out of his mouth ...

A nightmare! I think I do not like animal fig!
