Philosykos Eau de Parfum by Diptyque is a Woody Aromatic fragrance for women and men.
Philosykos Eau De Parfum is a development of the Eau De Toilette edition with a more profound presence of fig in a relationship with a milky coconut that dominates the heart underneath the fig, more grassy features, and a rather stronger fig leaf. The fresh greenness is enhanced with more touch of sun and solar notes, and a base of cedarwood and woody accord.

I did not like this at all, unfortunately. I am giving it three stars because the projection and sillage are great. So, if it is your thing scent wise, you will enjoy a long lasting fragrance that others will notice. However, for me it was way too fruity and sweet. I was expecting something earthy, but this smelled primarily like overripe figs on my skin. I was hoping for something more green with some wood as dirt notes based on other reviews, but I was basically walking around smelling like a Fig Newton. This is one of the few fragrances I've washed off my skin after giving it a second try. I do not recommend this for people who are not absolutely wild about figs.
If you love the outdoors and want to smell like fig leaves and cut grass, this is for you. It is not a fig perfume or a perfume at all really. It is more like an outdoor experience.
I can see wearing my decant at the beach or at a barbeque, maybe, but otherwise I will smell like I work as a landscaper. It is nice for that but not a fig perfume if that is what you
are looking for.
I am very particular about scents. My children think I should have been a perfumer with my acute sense of smell. I have been doing research on fig scented perfumes and recently ordered half a dozen to try. The Philosykos is by far the most divine!! It smells the most natural, as if one were walking past a grove of fig trees. I'm not sure, yet, about the longevity as I just ordered the smallest sample to try.
I saw great reviews of this extract de parfum on YouTube. I think the smell was pretty good but it did not last long - again the scent is nice but I wasn’t particularly drawn to it
