I bought this product in March,2018 and it is well stored (in dark, cold environment). At the beginning itself, it tastes a bit wired, but as I was using it for the 1st time, I considered it as the taste of Olive oil itself. But day by the day the taste ruined, and it now smells bad and even tastes very bitter and has become rancid. The manufacturing date is : July 2017. But seems it is not extra-virgin or not stored properly which caused the oil to become rancid. Not at all happy with the product.
I wish I could give a minus ranking to it. It was quite a surprise to me when I saw the price rs. 621 for this 1ltr olive oil, so I quickly purchased it but my happiness over this bargain vanished when I opened the seal and took it out in a bowl. It's smell and colour both are that of mustard although it has a small amount of olive oil as well so the mustard smell is not that strong but anybody can easily recognize the smell and colour of mustard oil in it. And it's a nonreturnable item. Sad.
I don't know how this has happened on Amazon. The bottle has different packing in the market. Moreover oil is smelling like it's mixed with mustard oil. Clearly this is an adulterated product. This is not a pure extra virgin olive oil. I have used delmonte and borges as well. Borges EVOO is 10times better than this adulterated Figaro product on Amazon. Seller is cloudtail. I think amazon should either stop selling this fake EVOO or rename it to mustard oil.
Its consistency and taste is good. used for cooking and as hair oil. There are cheaper options available with other brands with reasonable quality difference however there are better brands available as well if you wish to pay more.
Used it to diet fry, potato wedges and deep fry. leaves no odour and colour also remains fair even after the primary use. This is a great product. Go for it
