Kadota was inspired by an accord idea by Jean Claude Ellena in his book, The Diary of a Nose.
Jean Claude Ellena writes that Stemone in combination with gamma-Octalactone can produce an effective illusion of the smell of figs. He says “Stemone gives an impression of mint leaves or fig leaves, it all depends on what I want to make it say. For the smell of ripe figs I recommend adding ethyl maltol, but for dried figs the answer lies in concrete of iris.”
