The exquisite sweetness of a nap in the shade of the fig tree. Lulled by the green scent of its leaves, the milky and pulpy scent of ripe fruit and the woody notes of the tree.
The first fig accord
In 1994, Olivia Giacobetti created the first fig accord in perfumery. A hymn to the fig tree, her favourite tree. She dreamed of restoring the smell of this first memory of summer: of the leaves, the sensation of white milk on the fingertips and the sweetness of barely ripe fruit. A fragrance that she found comforting and enveloping.
She imagined an innovative fig accord, very original for its time. Because it is impossible to capture its scent naturally, she recreated it by playing with synthetic materials. She blended the green molecule stemone with the "coconut" nuances of C-18 aldehyde. A combination of herbaceous and milky notes for the scent of leaves and figs to come alive. She emphasized their creamy notes with sandalwood to anchor the woody dimension of the tree.

The scent of the fig cannot be extracted naturally. It is recreated by a combination of natural and synthetic: the green molecule stetone, the "coconut" note of C-18 aldehyde and sandalwood.
The fig leaf scent is obtained by a combination of synthetic and natural ingredients. Where the green scent of the molecule stemone is mixed with a hint of C-18 aldehyde for the "coconut" effect and with woody notes (sandalwood, cedar).
Perfumers use cedar from Virginia or Texas. The distillation of its wood chips provides an essential oil with dry nuances, reminiscent of "pencil lead".
