The fig situation
If the Amalfi coast smells like this, then we don’t know what we are doing living in the wrong country (At least during the summer)
Anyways…let’s leave the exaggerations aside and lets focus.
This fragrance got us by surprise. More to Maruša though but the truth is that she was going nuts looking for some fresh and invigorating fig scent.
She had fall in love with a bottle of Annicke Goutal’s Ninfeo mio that had a very lovely aroma.
She didn’t know she loved fig fragrances so much. Before that, we have ordered few samples which amongst them were the famous philosykos by Diptyque and the infamous Pulp from the house of Byredo and none of them were a match to her nose so we figured that the note she was seeking was the fig leaf and not the fruit.
So we came across to a variety of Acqua di Parma’s offerings and yeah, with Fico di Amalfi was a love at first sniff.
Better than Ninfeo mio but weaker in performance. But that is not a big problem if you get the big 150ml bottle and spray it at will.
“All things in moderation, nothing in excess” (Says no one ever when a great scent shows up Lol)
Now if we get to the note pandemonium, to our nose (yes, to both of us) we get the freshest blast of citrus and fig leaves. As it dries down we get a soft and beautiful peppery jasmine and hints of cedar.
So yeah, in conclusion we just gonna pretend that Amalfi coast smells like that and we should reconsider our geographic choices to live in, at least during the Slovenian Summer.
