Acqua di parma Blue Mediterraneo - Fico di Amalfi

There are lots of fig scents around. Some are green, some are woody and some, like Fico di Amalfi are sweet and fruity.

For some reason, when I think of this scent I think of a small dog. Not that it smells of dog, absolutely not, the only notes I'm getting are sweet fig and some initial citrus. But this dog, he's sitting there, waiting the whole day, watching the world go by with his little puppy eyes. Cute, loyal and predictable.

So, is that a good or bad thing? Well, if you're looking for adventure, love surprises or is that kind of person who generally thrives on chaos, this might not be the fig scent for you. But if "cute, loyal and predictable" sounds great or you're having one of those days when you needs things to be easy and undemanding, Fico di Amalfi will sit by by our side, have it's little pink tongue out and pant approvingly, helping you get through the day.


  1. I am going through a fig phase right now, so I may have to try this. I do like the sweeter fig notes (although I like the green ones, too). Apparently I just like all fig at the moment! :)

  2. Yes, figs are wonderful! It's impossible to get good fresh figs here, so I have to look to perfume to get that smell :)

    Fico di Amalfi is inexpensive and it smells good to me. It is very linear though, so I do get a bit bored with it after a while.

  3. I like figs (as in "food"). I enjoyed fig as a note in some perfumes but I'm not excited by it. I will keep trying different fig scents but ... I really like your dog analogy.
