When I first starting writing EauMG many years ago, I couldn’t get my hands on enough fig-based fragrances. Friends would email me links to every fig perfume they encountered online or in person. I loved fig perfumes and it was great timing – it was one of the trends in niche perfumery at the time. Over the past 9-10 years, I’ve easily sampled hundreds of fig perfumes. I also have bought more than any person would ever need. My obsession with figs started “Pre-Perfume-Era” for me.… Continue reading | 31 Comments
Ciel d’Airain is the most figgy thing ever but it doesn’t openly admit that it’s figgy. Fig perfumes are some of my favorites. Why be ashamed Huitième Art? Get figgy with it.

And even a must have for those wanting a simple scent. I see why this is one of Pacifica’s #1 sellers.
So far, I haven’t met a Diptyque fragrance that I haven’t loved. I can say that Diptyque Philosykos is my all time favorite fig scent ever. Ever. I’m a fig fragrance nut. I “collect” them even if I love them or not. It is a nostalgia thing. It makes me think of my childhood spending summers in the Southeast and a big move to the Pacific Northwest as an adult.
