1. Pearl Eau de Parfum — Mancera

Pearl Eau de Parfum — Mancera

Review

Mancera is a relatively new perfume house. Founded in 2008 by Pierre Mancera, the brand started with a single boutique in Paris. Today they sell their fragrances worldwide and have 71 difference fragrances.

Pearl Eau de Parfum is an incredibly delightful fruity fragrance. Blended by Pierre Montale, this is a fragrance which makes fig the star of the show. 

The top notes of bergamot, green apple, white peach and fig create a crisp yet sweet opening. A powdery heart of enticing rose, jasmine and violet floral aromas add a delicate softness to the blend. Eventually, deep base notes of ambergris and musk bleed through uniting all accords into one delightful bouquet. From start to finish, the fig is the star of the show and truly shines.

With a strong sillage and incredible staying power, Pearl is likely to give you 5 hours of wear from one application. Pearl Eau de Parfum is a versatile perfume but is definitely best suited to spring and summer days.

The perfume comes presented in a tall, gold-toned flacon. Its presentation and scent exude luxurious opulence and mature femininity.

Top Notes:

Bergamot, Green Apple, Fig, Peach

2. Promenade Des Anglais Eau de Parfum – Guerlain

Promenade Des Anglais Eau de Parfum - Guerlain

Review

French perfume house Guerlain is one of the most well-known perfumeries in the world today. Promenade des Anglais Eau de Parfum is a classic, powdery scent which uses strong fruity and woody notes for a brighter appearance. 

Bergamot, currant buds, violet leaf, and fig give a fresh and zingy opening. It soon slowly mellows, allowing a heart of lily-of-valley, rose, mimosa, and violet to shine through. The heady base of orris, heliotrope, and white musk never really come into their own, but rather support the last traces of fig before the perfume fades entirely.

A good all-year perfume, Promenade de Anglais Eau de Parfum is nonetheless best suited to day time wear. The sillage is very soft and fades quickly, just like the perfume itself. Expect 3 to 4 hours of wear from one application.

The presentation is what really sets this perfume apart. Promenade de Anglais comes in a tall, engraved glass bottle which has an art nouveau feel. There’s no doubt that it will stand out on your dressing table. 

Top Notes:

Bergamot, Currant Buds, Fig, Violet Leaf

Mid Notes:

Lily-of-the-Valley, Rose, Mimosa, Violet

Base Notes:

Orris, Heliotrope, Musk

3. Philosykos Eau de Parfum – Diptyque

Philosykos Eau de Parfum - Diptyque

Review

Founded in 1961, Diptyque began life as the passion project of 3 creative friends. Today it is one of the most successful international, luxury perfume houses in the world.

Philosykos Eau de Parfum has been a firm favourite with Diptyque fans since its launch in 2012. Deceptively simple, this blend uses fig and fig leaf to take us back to ancient Greece. 

The top notes of fig and fig leaf are bolstered by the heart note of fig tree and supported by the woody base notes and hint of black pepper. 

The result is a simple fragrance with incredible depth, a strong sillage, and great staying power. 

Perfect for spring and summer days, Philosykos Eau de Parfum should give you around 4 hours of wear from each application. 

Presented in the standard Diptyque bottle, this is an understated and elegant perfume in every sense.

4. Premier Figuier Extreme Eau de Parfum – L’artisan

Premier Figuier Extreme Eau de Parfum - L’artisan

Review

L’Artisan Parfumeur is one of the older independent perfume houses. Founded in the 1970s, they pioneered many trends in personal and home perfumery.

Premier Figuier Extreme Eau de Parfum is a stunning unisex fragrance which blends masculine green and woody notes with sweet and fruity accords. Unsurprisingly, the fig is a big part of this blend. 

Opening notes of fig leaf and dried fruits are fleeting, providing a pleasant first scent in the sillage before giving way to the heart notes of fig, fig tree, and almond milk. This remarkably sweet heart is balanced by a base of coconut and sandalwood. 

The result is an incredibly long-lasting day time fragrance with a soft sillage. Perfect for spring and summer wear, Premier Figuier Extreme Eau de Parfum will give you around 6 hours of wear and is sure to make you feel grounded and powerful.

The striking but simple presentation of this fragrance makes it eye-catching. The tinted glass, black-topper, and angled sides make this bottle inviting to the touch. All in all, this is a sensual fragrance. 

Top Notes:

Coconut, Almond Milk, Fig Leaf, Dried Fruits

Mid Notes:

Fig, Fig Tree

Base Notes:

Sandalwood

5. Fleur de Figuier Eau de Parfum – Roger & Gallet

Fleur de Figuier Eau de Parfum - Roger & Gallet

Review

Founded in 1862, Roger & Gallet is one of the oldest and most prestigious perfume houses on this list. So it is no surprise that their perfume is also one of the most striking.

Fleur de Figuier Eau de Parfum is a master class in making single notes really shine. Every single note in this blend highlights, supports or enhances the best qualities of fig to stunning effect. 

The opening notes of fig, fig nectar, and fig leaf, give the sillage a singularly pure first scent. As this mellows the woody notes and patchouli at the heart of the perfume slowly bleed through to provide it with depth and edge, without taking away that first, fruity scent. Finally, the base notes of musk and fig nectar give a soft, sweet finish that is both sensual and youthful.

Perfect for spring and summer days, this is a strong perfume with a heavy sillage; the first wave can be a little overpowering. 

The simple presentation is offset by the stunning purple colour of the fragrance itself as well as the vibrant label. 

Top Notes:

Fig Leaf, Fig Nectar, Fig

Mid Notes:

Patchouli, Woodsy Notes

Base Notes:

Musk, Fig Nectar

6. Pulp Eau de Parfum – Byredo

Pulp Eau de Parfum - Byredo

Review

Founded and based in Sweden in 2006, Byredo enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame in the early 2000s and has remained a firm favourite of the perfume-savvy since. Pulp Eau de Parfum is a stunning unisex fragrance which blends fruits, florals, and spices in a truly unique way. 

The top notes of bergamot, cardamom, and black currant give this a mellow and pleasant opening that is soon sharpened by the middle notes of fig, red apple, and tiare flower. The unique base notes of praline, cedar, and peach blossom are far from ordinary. They give the fragrance and extra oomph needed (and anyway, Byredo is rarely traditional).

Perfect for spring and summer evenings, this perfume has a light sillage and surprising staying power. Expect 4 hours wear from a single application. 

Presented in the iconic Byredo bottle, Pulp Eau de Parfum is a fig-lovers dream; complex, fruity, and oh-so opulent.

Top Notes:

Bergamot, Lavender

Mid Notes:

Bulgarian Rose, Moroccan Rose, Iso E Super, Patchouli, Geranium

7. Blu Mediterraneo Fico di Amalfi Eau de Toilette – Acqua Di Parma

Blu Mediterraneo Fico di Amalfi Eau de Toilette - Acqua Di Parma

Review

Beginning life as a small factory in Parma, Acqua di Parma has been a symbol of Italian chic in fragrance since 1916. Blu Mediterraneo Eau de Toilette is a perfect embodiment of the sophisticated style that has ensured this brands enduring popularity. 

Featuring sweet, spicy, and citrus notes at every level, this is a refreshing perfume which opens with top notes of grapefruit, bergamot, and lemon. Pepper dusted heart notes of sweet fig and jasmine temper this spicy, sharp start and allow the complex blend to balance on the earthy base of cedar, benzoin, and fig tree.

A perfect fragrance to lift the heat of summer days, Blu Mediterraneo perfume is refreshing and sharp with a moderate sillage and good staying power. You can expect around 4 to 5 hours of wear from a single application.

The bottle may seem a little dated, but the tall, clean design and the vibrant blue of the glass perfectly complement the overall scent. 

Top Notes:

Grapefruit, Bergamot, Lemon

Mid Notes:

Pink Pepper, Fig Nectar, Jasmine

Base Notes:

Cedar, Fig Tree, Benzoin

8. Green Tea Fig Eau de Toilette – Elizabeth Arden

Green Tea Fig Eau de Toilette - Elizabeth Arden

Review

Elizabeth Arden is one of the best-loved brands in female fragrance and beauty. Known for classy, timeless scents, Elizabeth Arden caters to mature women. Green Tea Fig Eau de Toilette is a perfect personification of their ethos! 

The opening notes of citruses, tea, ivy, and fig leaf make the first wave of scent bright and sweet. But when the heart notes of fig, tamarind, and pistachio step in, the fragrance becomes darker and more rounded. The tonka bean, musk, and clary sage in the base notes keep the sweetness of the fig alive while adding a touch of earthiness.

The result is a well-rounded and undeniably feminine scent which is perfect for spring and autumn evenings. With a vast sillage and moderate staying power, Green Tea Fig should give you about 4 hours of wear from each application.

Simply presented in a tall, purple and green bottle, this is a vibrant and youthful fragrance that will make you feel refreshed!

Top Notes:

Bergamot, Citron, Clementine, Fig leaf, Ivy, Tea

Mid Notes:

Tamarind, Pistachio, Violet Leaf, Fig, Green Tea

Base Notes:

Musk, Tonka Bean, Clary Sage

9. Purple Fig Eau de Parfum – Vilhelm Parfumerie

Purple Fig Eau de Parfum - Vilhelm Parfumerie

Review

As a niche fragrance house, Vilhelm Parfumerie creates fragrances based on a moment in time, a feeling – a vibe. Purple Fig Eau de Parfum was inspired by the green walls of Cité du Figuier – a hidden side street off of the Rue Oberkampf. 

This very green and refreshing scent opens with the top notes of lemon, angelica, and cassis, making the first wave of scent fresh and uplifting. As the heart notes of fig, cyclamen, and galbanum bleed through, it becomes a much sweeter, almost dusty scent. The base of cedar and cypress is resinous. The overall effect is reminiscent of stepping into a cool, fragrant side-street, removed from the world. 

As a result, Purple Fig Eau de Parfum is a light and inviting perfume, perfect for spring days. The sillage is quite, heavy, however, so spray with care. This is a surprisingly sturdy perfume, and you should get 5 to 6 hours of wear from it.

Presented in a short, cylindrical bottle of textured glass with a yellow topper, this is a striking piece to add to any dressing table. 

Top Notes:

Lemon, Cassis, Angelica

Mid Notes:

Cyclamen, Galbanum, Fig

Base Notes:

Virginia Cedar, Cypress

10. Womanity Eau de Parfum – Mugler

Womanity Eau de Parfum - Mugler

Review

Thierry Mugler is known for creating offbeat, striking perfumes and designs, and Womanity is a perfect example of this. Stunningly simple on paper, the Womanity Eau de Parfum is nonetheless complex and refreshing to the nose. 

Opening with a note of fig, it quickly blends into heart notes of fig leaf and fig tree, which dampens the sweetness to make it green and fresh. It is the base of caviar, however, which makes Womanity a knock-out perfume. The result is sensual, aromatic, and complex – just like the women it was designed for.

Perfect for summer nights, this scent has a huge sillage an enormous staying power. Expect a solid 7 hours of wear from Womanity if you put it on your clothes and hair.

As is the case with all Thierry Mugler perfumes, Womanity is stunningly presented. The tall, glass bottle is topped by a metal design which could be described as either gothic or art deco. 

The mask-like face on the side is startling but feels like it belongs. There is no doubt that it will stand out on any dressing table.

Top Notes:

Fig Leaf, Caviar

Mid Notes:

Fresh Fig

Base Notes:

Fig Tree
