Here's what other people are saying about Premier Figuier Extreme...
I did a side by side comparison of this Extreme version and the Premier Figuier. The Extreme is much more similar to Diptique's Philosykos with overall better projection but less greenery than the regular Premier Figuier. To be honest I can detect almost no difference between Premier Figuier Extreme, Philosykos and Dambrosia (from Profumum) other than price. If you want a milky fig then grab whichever one you can afford and enjoy!

I tried this and Philosykos at the same time. Two wonderful fig scents, this one is much, much more green at the beginning and overall gives the impression more of a full fig tree. If green isn't your thing though it does fade within the first 20 minutes. Overall this is a more complex fragrance but it's soft enough I do wish it projected more. It may still win in the longevity race though, after 3.5 hours the Philosykos is starting to fade away. We shall see....

Overall I find this line extremely overrated; this is one of their best/least cheap-synthetic smelling, to my nose. This one smells like Philosykos (another nice frag from a mixed-performance house) with coconut. I sprayed it on my arm then took a long nap, and when I woke up it still smelled the same.

Figgy like a full tree, a gentle balanced fig. To me it's not thaaaat different from Philosykos by Diptyque; I probably prefer the latter. I was satisfied with the longevity on this one but it was not a miracle scent to me. I tried the original Premier Figuier years ago and *think* I like this one better, but not a side by side comparison. It's nice but recommend a sample (with a few other figs for comparison) before you invest.

I just bought the 100 ml. This is an incredible fragrance. Two years ago, I went to an aquarium with family, and someone wore this fragrance in our vicinity. I desperately wanted to know who it was and what they were wearing. It's so unique. I've tried to replicate this smell since, with coconut lotions and creamy scents with little success. I recognized the smell immediately when I tried out the tester and quickly ordered a bottle. I'm wearing this today and I'm in heaven. It's been three hours and it's retained it's sillage so far.

This is my "go to" fragrance for fall. A true "fig" scent -- green and deep, with a bit of creaminess. It is one of the most long-lasting of the Le Artisan collection, easily retaining its integrity for an 8-hour day. Also, an easy fragrance to blend. I sometimes top it with Le Artisan Mimosa or a rose scent. Lovely.

This was my first niche perfume purchase, several years ago. It is both green and creamy; the fig and coconut blend together in a lovely way. This scent will always hold fond memories for me, but I took off 1 star because it doesn't last as long as I would like.

I really love this fig scent. My favorite fig perfume. Very sophisticated and elegant with incredible staying power. I don't think it is for everyone.

In my opinion this is a masculine scent, too woodsy for me, but would be to die for on a guy. I don't know why I imagined fig would smell very delicate and sort of plummy, but this is not a delicate fragrance. Cedary dry down.

this fragrance is true to it's listed notes, i can easily smell the coconut, fig and something floral. i'm not getting the almond however, which was what i was most excited about. i purchased this because i wanted to try something outside of my comfort zone (gourmand). it is too floral and has too much coconut (which is a note i don't like). not unpleasant but not for me.

This perfume smells EXACTLY like Pacifica brand Mediterranean Fig perfume. The difference is that the latter costs about $22 dollars. The soap version is even yummier.

Sugar + Coconut + Alcohol = Insipid. Definitely NOT = $155.00. Most overrated fragrance line everrrrrr.

I'd heard that this was a little sweeter and more floral than Premier Figuier, which I found a bit too harsh and green, so I had high hopes for this one. It was great at first but then seemed to get sweeter and almost cloying on me... disappointing after a wonderful beginning.

Ugh. I had hopes but this was too old smelling for me. Depending on what part of the country you live you might not get this, but I think it smells like a split open Monkey Ball with a soft baby powder like aftermath. I'd love to smell this when I hug my Grandma, but on someone my age (24), gross.

I agree that this is much better balanced than the original. It is breathy and green but, unlike the original, is also warm and milky. A lovely "organic" scent. Also, it lasts forever! This is my favorite springtime and autumn fragrance, but I also love to ear it occasionally in the midst of winter to remind me of green things to come!

I absolutely love this fragrance and have been wearing it for a few years. It's soft, sexy and lasts all day. If you love fig this is THE ONE to wear. The Fig & coconut blend beautifully.

I found my new favorite! Premier Figuier Extreme is an absolute gorgeous perfume. I always feel sexy wearing it! On my skin, I get an intoxicating blend of fig and milky coconut. The staying power is impressive. It really lasts all day and I get compliments galore. I can't stop smelling my wrists. It truly is love at first whiff. Ahh!
