Racing In Red Bloody Leather
I bought so many specimens from the Ferrari perfume range that I'm practically getting close to having them all. I've already done a lot of reviews of these colonies, and today's rumor is Scuderia Racing Red. It is, of course, another item from the Scuderia collection. However, it is not a flanker perfume for Scuderia Red, yet a fragrance in itself belonging to the family of aromatic, woody, and leathery. I feel I should be more critical because, for most people, this is probably something akin to ordinary scent. Still, I find that something of Scuderia's Racing Red is engaging, but it's not generic.
The Scuderia Ferrari Racing Red embraces me with a refreshing alcoholic cocktail of tempered lime that never gets too sharp, a tad of brown sugar and glazed cachaça, the main ingredients of Caipirinha. The Brazilian drink mixes with a slightly mentholated accord on the background that comes from aromatic bitter mugwort. I get a more real lemon on my skin, albeit creamier on a strip of paper. Since my nose doesn't pinch, I bet there is only a little white pepper, which is not disturbing. This opening is somewhat artificial, which is not a real surprise in these days of strident synthetics, but neutrally and harmlessly, roughly based on herbs and spices.
A metal heart filled with notes of silver clary sage and blue lavender follows the opening as soon as the explosive accord subsides in a few minutes. I think it is a clary sage and lavender combined with a vaguely mineral nature that creates a particular metallic odor accord. Ferrari claims the presence of Electrum, which is a natural alloy of gold and silver, with traces of copper and other metals. I perceive the metallic note very well, a bit similar to that of Azzaro Chrome, although the two fragrances are different. The heart becomes a little stimulating with the introduction of those aromatic notes. However, like the opening, the intermediate phase does not have a substantial impact.
The cologne concludes with soft, sensual, and contemporary cedar notes, tonka beans, and deep leather. The final stage is mostly woody and leathery, the tonka does not scream with its super sweetness, but leather and cedar fight together for keeping the base noble and bold.
The lasting power is subtle, and the silage is relatively low. However, the scent itself is still delicious, apply some sprays on your clothes, and it will last a little longer, and I must say that what is left on my clothes has a smell better the next day. It is more a casual perfume for every day, for leisure and not appropriate for dating or clubbing. A pleasant harmless soft scent that also has quite a bit of character. It is a mixture of very refreshing and well-mixed notes, which is excellent for spring and summer. The tone is bright and herbaceous touched by flowers and supported by warm, soft spices and comforting woody notes of leather, a robust masculine aroma with its unique style.
This review is based upon a 125 ml (4.2 FL oz) bottle I own since July 2020.
