I would like to put a nice Amouage Figment Man and Woman review here, but I didn’t get around to doing more than a cursory few sniffs. It’s summer, and I’ve decided this year to not whine about my summer “notfeeelingit>” Posting on Wednesdays may be light and may not have much to do with perfume, but I will do a giveaway every week, at a minimum. If something stirs me out of my summer perfume doldrums (don’t ask why, I’ve pondered it for years with no answer), you’ll get a review!
I spritzed Amouage Figment Man and Woman – one on each hand, not checking to see which was which – and really like them both. One is very earthy (pretty sure this is the man) Notes of lemon, geranium, sandalwood, animalics, vetiver, leather, labdanum, guaiac, balsamic. Let’s see if I guess right. Yup, that’s the men’s. It is gorgeously earthy. I’m not getting a lot of animalics early on, but as it dries a little, then I get just a bit.
Amouage Figment Woman has notes of pepper, saffron, gardenia, tuberose, jasmine sambac, orange blossoms, lisylang, cassia, papyrus, patchouli, orris and incense. This is softer and plusher. With the list of florals, I was expecting a big floral, but nope. It’s floral, but not a big floral, dragging out the tuberose more than the other floral notes (yeah!). It’s beautiful and a light enough floral that it will be great in summer. It’s one of those complicated ones, though. I need to spend more time with it because it shifts.
For some reason, I thought there might be fig, but I think that’s just the name. Oh, what?! Like you didn’t think that for a second. Fig is always nice.
Huh, well, I wound up writing more of a review than I thought. So! comment to be entered to win a sample of Amouage Figment Man or Woman. I’ll give away six samples to commenters drawn at random, but you’ll need to tell me if you want a sample of the Man or Woman.
