Key Notes of Green Fig
What Does Green Fig Smell Like
Dossier's Green Fig perfume is a sensory exploration of bold, alluring scents. As you first breathe it in, a strong and crisp green aroma greets you. It's reminiscent of freshly cut grass or the smell of leaves in the wind. This is coupled with the tart, fruity essence of blackcurrant, and the slightly sweet and crisp scent of apples.
As these initial notes begin to settle, the heart of the perfume begins to reveal itself. The central note is unmistakably fig. It is succulent and rich, echoing the scent of ripe fruit on a warm day, yet not cloying or overly sweet. The tiare flower lends a light floral touch to the composition, gently softening the intensity of the fig.
As the perfume dries down, the base notes come to the forefront. The cedarwood offers a woody fragrance that's slightly resinous, providing a strong, grounding contrast to the fruit and floral notes. The dry fruits add a subtle, warm sweetness, mellowing the overall scent and adding depth to the composition. The result is a fragrance that is boldly fresh, fruity, floral, and subtly sweet. The perfume, in its entirety, mirrors a walk through a lush, fruit-laden garden.
Review of Green Fig
Dossier's Green Fig, a charming dupe of Byredo's Space Rage Travx, boasts a bold flavor profile that takes you on a journey through fruit-filled orchards. With its price point of only $39, it's a gem worth exploring for those who enjoy the finer scents in life without the luxury price tag. Retaining an impressive concentration of 12%, it offers a robust olfactory experience that rivals its $320 counterpart.
This unisex scent opens with a burst of green notes, whisking you away to a lush meadow, and is immediately followed by the fruity duo of apple and blackcurrant. It's an immersion into nature that's both crisp and welcoming. As the scent evolves, the tiare flower and dry fruits add a layer of sweetness to the mix, oscillating smoothly between sharp and sweet tones.
Green Fig is more than a perfume; it's an entire mood, encapsulating a colorful, psychedelic flavor explosion. While it may sound like an intense sensory experience, the perfume manages to remain grounded and not turn into a sensory overload.
However, the perfume isn't without its faults. The cedarwood base seems to take a backseat in this composition, leaving room for improvement in terms of depth and longevity. The scent's unisex character is another point of contention, as it may not appeal to those who prefer gender-specific scents.
Despite these minor drawbacks, Dossier's Green Fig continues to be a worthy alternative to Byredo's Space Rage Travx. With its clean ingredients and cruelty-free and vegan-friendly nature, it is a scent that not only smells good but feels good to wear too. If you're in search of a budget-friendly, fruity, and vibrant scent, Green Fig might be the dupe you've been waiting for.
