Fico D'India Fragrance Reviews

This is a really interesting take on the fig. It's not too verdant, earthy or sweaty, like Ninfeo Mio by Goutal, nor too sugary, melon-y and banana-ish, like Philosykos by Dyptique. The powdery dry down adds a sophisticated, even "classic" dimension I have not encountered in other fig scents but this can give way to a "mothball" cedar note which is refreshing or ever so slightly cloying, depending on your mood. What, exactly the cactus smells like, I don't know, I can't identify it in the scent, perhaps it's one of the greener notes. The fresher qualities of this scent are tempered by quiet vanilla and coconut (which are the last, lingering traces) There is also, perhaps a hint of sharpened pencil (cedar?). It's this union of creamy sweetness and and dense greenery that make it mysterious and unisex...combined with the beautiful packaging, it's definitely a cut above the rest. It's definitely not something every other person is wearing. A signature day scent.

Signature scent! This perfume has a gorgeous scent of cactus and fig. I have sniffed/ bought many perfumes before and this is so far the most interesting, exotic smell that I have ever come across. It smells very natural on my skin and just puts me in a good mood all the time. Longevity and sillage are poor on me but the perfume lasts longer on clothes. I dabble around in other perfumes occasionally but always come back to Ortigia Fico d'India at the end.

Close to perfection.

Yes, interesting and well done Fig fragance.
Basically is a Fig with citrus and woods. Well blended and decent lasting power (to be a EDC).

Scent: 7/10
Longevity: 7/10

Fantastic scent for the summer although can be worn all year round in my opinion. Initially on me it opens with an almost creamy coconut type of vibe, after ten minuts or so it starts to settle and develops into the most amazing creamy woody green fragrance. Very unique and distinctive. Well done Ortigia.

I agree 100% with Jndena. A lovely fragrance for many resons but it would never be my signature. We actually use it as a room spray at home to get more 'wear' out of it and to enjoy the smell. Guests always comment how lovely our house smell if we do this before they arrive!

I am an amber and wood lover. This fragrance would never be my signature, but appeals to me for a change of pace for spring or summer, or the office. It's soft, feminine, earthy and a little green. Lovely. The men I know love it. I also find it very similar to Tom Ford Santal Blush, but I find this fragrance more soulful and grounded, less forced and "intellectual". A very solid, pretty scent for those who don't always gravitate to particularly feminine scents.
