The Scoop

One of the best fig scents ever made and one of our favorite scents of all time, now even stronger and more compelling. This ode to the fig groves of Greece is still a very green fig – a fig just on the verge of being ripe. The opening is sharp with the tart freshness of the leaves, and then the fig itself comes into play – sweet enough to tantalize, but not overwhelm. The glossy green leaves and succulent fruit intertwine with a dry wood note and a hint of rich earth. You get the sense not only of the whole tree, but the whole grove – the wood, the earth, the sky, the Mediterranean sun coaxing the sweetness of the fruit along as it ripens. Many a superlative has been used to describe this fragrance over the years and it deserves every one. Outstanding.

Big, glorious fig open and whispery dry down. Unfortunately, it disappears on my skin within an hour. A spritze on my clothing is gone in about the same time. That is always, though, my trouble with the Diptyque scents.

Wow! Perfect. I've been looking for this scent forever, and finally I found it - the perfume that smells like Hawaii! Crazy, huh? Sure enough: it opens with ocean spray, wind, sand, jungle botanical gardens, CELERY (!!!), and a hint of coconut cream. After a while, you notice the unmistakable fig. It's super light, breezy, and wears so well. Holy cow!

Let us begin by saying Olivia Giacobetti is a genius. I love everything I've tried by OG. Consequently, Philosykos is impressive. I would describe it as a dry fig fragrance, meaning that it smells like the entire fig tree and not just the fig fruit. If you're looking for a really sweet, fruity fig, this is not it. If you're looking for a light, fresh, green fig...this might be your holy grail. Keep in mind, this is not a heavy fragrance, it is light as air ( a style Giacobetti is known for). I never usually like fragrances that an be described as fresh or green, however, I love this one. I spray it on considerably and it is still not overwhelming. Worth the money!
