L Artisan Parfumeur Premier Figuier

21 Feb

Some people liken this fragrance to the experience of “being knocked out with a fig tree.” I think those people should do a comparison with Jo Malone’s Wild Fig and Cassis. It is a wonderful, realistically direct scent, a very green and wet tree full of ripe, dark juicy figs. Premier Figuier is slightly more delicate and impressionistic composition, though it is a much cooler, greener fragrance than the sweet, ethereal and linear Philosykos, which conjures pale pink and lavender hues..

Fico Di Amalfi was my first fig fragrance experience, but after PF, Jo Malone, and Philosykos, I returned to this once beloved fragrance and realized the love had completely vanished.

Unlike the fig in Un Jardin en Mediterranee’ by Hermes (my new favorite fig), which is augmented by tomato plants, herbs, flowers, and compost, Fico Di Amalfi portrays a sharp fig which has been skewed and distorted by its surrounding environment, creating an over-ripe, pungent quality which is both strong and muddy (mud not in the sense of wet earth, but in confusion).


PF is a very nice middle ground. It features the fig and fig tree, it’s light and refreshing, but it also has an impressionistic composition, which accurately communicates the poetic aspect of the true to life experience. To do this is perhaps more of a feat than to create a true to life fig tree scent (JM), or to be able to distill the most pleasant, soft, and pure aspects of the fig fruit itself (Philosykos)… That is up to the wearer.
