Since the release of Diptyque’s Philosykos and Premier Figuier from L’Artisan Parfumeur in the mid 90’s, both of which were composed by Olivia Giacobetti, fig fragrances have been a staple of many collections. Teniqua’s Figue Verte eschews many of the tropes you find in fig-based perfumes. There are no trips to the Mediterranean by way of Milton’s Garden of Eden. Instead perfumer Frances Lamb centers this now familiar fruit within a Caravaggio landscape filled with light and shadow.
The fragrance opens with a burst of green fig, bright bergamot and a playful zing of raspberry. A gentle hum of lavender creates a spacious, aromatic bridge to a fleshy heart given a sumptuous depth thanks to a hit of white flowers and lush magnolia. In the base vetiver and resins create dark, shadowy recesses, which perfumer Lamb accentuates with a measured shot of oud. And, we have to say, a very clever use of it at that.
