Fig trees and fig trees have an illustrious history behind them, and if carved woods dating from the Middle Ages and Renaissance are any indication, they were part of the Garden of Eden, their broad leaves serving as firsts within reach of a medium of modesty after the fall of the sky. The philosopher Plato was more interested in their mental qualities than their practical qualities, asserting that figs stimulate intelligence, and by his side all the ancient Mediterranean civilizations appreciated figs for their consistent flesh, their quality of nectar, the health benefits they provided and the precious advantage of being able to be dried for consumption in winter. Dried and candied figs are still sold throughout the Middle East and the Eastern Mediterranean as a delicacy reminiscent of those times. Such was the importance given to them that in classical Athens an important commercial center the term sycophant ��������� literally fig revealer was coined for those who preyed on fig poachers. As the practice of stealing the fruit was both illegal and very frowned upon - fig trees being sacred as well as a commercial point of view for the city-state of Athens - the practice quickly took on a more sinister undertone: if anyone one had a vendetta against his neighbor they often resorted to their reproach of poaching figs Thus the word sycophant gained a negative and more generalized meaning, that of liar snitch, a meaning that it still retains in Greek Centuries later, the word has acquired a different meaning in English that of humble flatterer, but its etymological history reminds us that the natural world around us is not unimportant, even in things as prosaic as words. . The scent of figs is amazing and unique. But apart from the quality of the fruit, the ambience of the whole tree, the crunchy greenery, the bitter nubile stems, the bark and the resinous freshness of the sap, its shade and all, is a major constituent of its charms. . Now that the autumnal passage makes us melancholy and nostalgic for these warmer days, the fig scents remind us with their green, dusty and slightly milky aroma that the pleasures will await like again next summer and will rock us in an easier transition. towards winter. Traditional medicine insists that the unripe 'milk' of the still light green and still firm nuggets is irritating to the skin and lips, and young children are warned not to be fooled by the lactones in the sticky sap milky notes emitted that attract them to believe that they are edible before their peak. The recreation of the scent of fig trees in perfumery is possible thanks to two essential ingredients: stemone and octalactone gamma. Stemone trade name Givaudan imparts a green and fresh tone like mint which, when combined with gamma octalactone like a prune evokes the earthy, sticky green of fig leaves a smell of dry earth, scorched by the sun of 'a warm place with a hint of bitterness and the milky sap of the young fruit. Hedione a note of fresh jasmine, trade name Firmenich and Iso-E Super a dynamic, shape-changing synthetic wood, trade name IFF are often used to give the genre a lift. The best fig-centric scents balance the warmer and cooler tones and recreate the mood of sitting under the shady branches while breaking the fruit in the shape of a cheeky: assimilated to the male genitals when they are whole and female when cut in half, figs are an evocative fruit in more sensual ways than one. The first soli-figue perfume was Premier Figuier which means first fig tree exhibiting its innovation at bonjour, launched by L'Artisan Parfumeur and composed by perfumer Olivia Giacobetti.
