I admit that I did not really know what a "fig fruit" was going to smell like. But, I rather like the scent. To me it has a sort of vivid bright fruit smell that does not come across as being mild. But, at the same time, it has some warmth and calming properties to it as well. The throw is good. It does not take long for the scent to develop. I left home and returned after having been burning it for about 4 hours and could smell it when I first came in the door and the candle was in a couple of rooms away.
