More like a Dacia
Starts off with classic lemon/bergamot and some very faint pepper, quite zesty but a bit synthetic. After that a strong, sharp, harsh and synthetic cardemom, geranium and spice concoction gradually takes over. The spicy notes reminds me of Voyage d’Hermes, a perfume I find ruined by the overindulged grabs from the spice rack. However, this one has a more synthetic base, which makes it worse. After several hours we are left with som standard but nice balsam/sandal notes. This is not a Ferrari, they have simply slapped the badge on a Dacia Logan hoping that it should work. It doesn’t.

Radioactive bergamot
This series by Ferrari definitely has a claim: According to its succinct name, the other three are 1. pure lavender, 2. noble fig and 3. light neroli. And here's the fourth bergamot in a row. Make her shine. So-so. In fact, I don't find the name inappropriate. Somehow it radiates quite strongly, but comparatively rather so in the nuclear-radioactive sense.

Radiant Bergamot starts with a slightly shrill citrus note, sharpened with ginger. Even if not listed, I also mean to perceive something minimally minty. For me, this triad basically makes up the majority of the fragrance, with the ginger providing the (exciting) angular something. Shortly afterwards, an indefinably creamy note is added, possibly from the amber. But I can't really identify this, any more than can the other listed notes. The garish citrus simply becomes softer and more supple in the course of time. That's it. Maybe you can get a hint of more spice from behind. But that was it then really.

Unlike the Pure Lavender, which I first had under my nose and which could not convince me, here the cool vibe runs through the entire course. With its somehow overdrawn, artificially futuristic aura, it strongly reminds me of Mugler Cologne. Only the design, mind you, they don't have so much in common in terms of content. Fresh and creamy is not reinvented here, but really interesting reinterpreted.

Optically this perfume series also makes something. All have the same heavy glass bottle with solid lid and leather appliqué. Nice. The shelf life alone is unfortunately mediocre and therefore a small drop of bitterness. But for that you can get the fragrances of this series quite cheap at the moment. Price/performance is in any case in order.

Bright bergamot? Yes. Radiantly beautiful, like a mushroom cloud. Of course Of course not! And the worst thing about it is: I find´s horny.

Another hyped Ferrari...
Once you spray this one you'll get a zesty bergamot blast together with some lime and ginger. The bergamot is a bit syntetic, but not bad at all. I really enjoy this intro! But i have to say that it does smell quite a lot different on skin than on paper (duh!?!?). After about 30min the bergamot tones down and the nutmeg and geranium enters. A bit of sweetnes but not at all a "disturbing kind of sweetnes", like rather pleasant sweetnes. This lasts around 4-5h on my skin and sits close to the skin after about an hour.

In my humble opinion this one is not as bright as "Bright Neroli", but it is really good. Both are made for spring/summer, but Bright Neroli is more uplifting to my nose.
As allways, don't bother the gender talk... Just spray on whatever you'd like!

Classic Italian Style Men’s Cologne
If you are hoping for an alternative to Bergamot 22 by Le Labo as some have said it is, you will be very disappointed. However, if you realize what this is trying to be, it actually does it’s job very well! This to me is like Acqua di Parma Colonia without the lavender or maybe like Essenza without the clove note. This is a classic Italian Eau De Cologne style fragrance. The Bergamot is very green and sparkling and is paired with that classic herbal shaving cream scent that conjures a clean shave and splash of cologne at a fine old fashioned Italian barber shop.
