Excerpt: A sophisticated versatile fragrance combining the sweetness of fig, the freshness of lemon, the uniqueness of mastix, the muskiness of galbanum and a base of exquisite wood notes. Definitely not a loud EdT, with a sillage that might disappoint the ones looking for something more overpowering, yet a high quality fragrance evoking the smell of warm summer days walking among fig and lemon trees and contemplating the Mediterranean sea. Heaven on earth!
Pros: Great Smell, Great Value, Not Overpowering, Sensual
Excerpt: This is gorgeous. Reminiscent of fig trees ripe with fruit and mediterranean summers - a delightful and elegant perfume. <br />Both men and women comment on it (Annick Goutal also makes this scent for men). <br />Crisp when first applied and then becomes powdery as it softens to an oriental spice. Lovely.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Great Value, Long-Lasting
Summary: "Ninfeo Mio" makes me think of a reversible bikini. Only in this case, I am thinking of the weather. Something has to turn, to make it all fit. In hot weather, the fragrance has a delightful citrus and verbena aroma, fresh and sour, green and a little herbaceous. In the base, it is subtly woody and smoky. In cold weather, it does not smell quite as good, it seems rather one-dimensional on my skin. I can smell vetiver - and that is all.
Excerpt: What an irresistible fig aroma there is in Ninfeo Mio with woody under tones. Very special scent, I do not know anything to compare with. Total winner! Perfect to uplifting your moods and for spring time or summer.
Summary: I have been searching high & low for a green scent to call my own, and Ninfeo Mio rings all the right bells. It just on the femme side of unisex. It's also NOT a floral bomb, NOT a oakmoss beast, and NOT a balmy resin ... which IS what most green scents are all about ... and why I don't wear them. It's very difficult to classify Ninfeo Mio, because it's not a typical feminine. It seems to be an aromatic, with it's fleeting citrus opening and leafy heart.
Summary: I had heard that Annick Goutal NINFEO MIO was this house's entry in the fig category, but I was not expecting so much complexity. This perfume opens with a lot of citrus and green, which I find quite refreshing. In some ways, the composition seems like a combination of both a green citrus cologne and a more standard greenish woody fig perfume drydown.
Katzenklo, Katzenklo, ja, das macht die Katze froh

Summary: An dieses Helge-Schneider-Lied mußte ich gestern nachmittag denken, als ich Ninfeo Mio trug. Bäh - ich fühlte mich, als ob ich mich wochenlang nicht gewaschen hätte. Ging gar nicht. Zum Glück war ich schon wieder zuhause, als das Duft-Waterloo losging. Wasser und Seife waren somit in greifbarer Nähe... ;-) Dabei ist der Auftakt ganz wunderbar. Grün, frisch, sehr natürlich. Einfach angenehm frisch. Leider dauert dieser Zustand nur knapp 1 Std. an.
