The striking switch
Silver Essence begins invigoratingly ethereal - herbaceous, but also aromatic - sweet - spicy and strong herb.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfume "Honk1510" for the sample.

The first thing you can perceive is an intense ethereal, slightly herbaceous note, which gives the top note something refreshing and comes from silver - sage.

At the same time, the sage is invigorated - peppy - to a nice degree by the grey pepper, which ensures that the top note has air-lifting properties and has been used in such a way that one need not fear sneezing fits.

These two notes are enveloped by a fine aromatic and sweet-spicy facet, which provides a pleasant substance and comes from nutmeg in combination with cinnamon.

In the background, a strong tart note can be perceived, which gives the top note that certain something and comes from thyme.

This constellation is perceptible on my skin for 20 minutes before the heart note unfolds.

Now a very clear woody note can be perceived, which gives the fragrance a wonderfully distinctive dynamic and comes from the white birch chord.

At the same time, a fine Mediterranean, slightly herbaceous nuance can be perceived, which merges with the white birch chord to form a whole and is responsible for the heart note having a beautiful presence and being due to the lavender.

These two notes are enveloped by a sweet, slightly exotic powdery creaminess of coconut powder, which gives the fragrance a beautiful, attractive softness
The heart note is perceptible on my skin for 3 hours before the base asserts itself.

Now there is a clear note, which brings a certain matt aura and comes from the mineral musk.

There is also a slightly woody note, which appears a bit crunchy, very subtly smoky - sweetish and gives the base a wonderful aura and comes from the Atlas cedar.

In the very background, a fine, light balsamic nuance of incense is perceptible, which provides a relaxed finish.

Silver Essence is a beautiful companion in the spring, summer and autumn months for the gentleman over 30 who is looking for a clear woody, distinctive yet soft fragrance.

In total the fragrance lasts 6 hours on my skin.

The Sillage is designed from the beginning to be clearly perceived at three-quarters of the arm length and this is maintained for 3.5 hours before it is reduced in calm steps until the fragrance finally fades away completely.

To begin with, at the moment I'm writing this review, I've got three Ferrari Essence collection scents, namely Oud, Leather, and Vetiver, and I am in love with them all. Nonetheless, I've been so skeptical about Silver for too long now, given that I'm not too fond of anything smelling like tropical coconut, for instance, bath foam, body milk, or sunscreen cream. That sweet and mellow odor you can find in pina colada makes me sick after a few minutes.
But I've read too many positive reviews about FSE. Taking into account the excellent experience I've had with the other Ferrari's scents, I've ultimately decided to give it a try, taking a chance on the very cheap original bottle I've found on eBay for nearly 24€.

Oh, man! Silver Essence is a green - woody – spicy – oriental fragrance, which opens on fusing silver notes with sage, thyme, and grey pepper. That's the fresh green side that gives a hint of amenity. From the very beginning, I notice the presence of black coconut. Through an exciting combination to start with the other notes, and fortunately not sweet at all, a good one, dark and herbal, similar to the milk you get when crashing a brown nut or you smell the grated coconut. It's well done!

Very soon, a mix of cinnamon and nutmeg pops up, offering the spicy side, and that gives a hint of lustiness.
It's at this point that the coconut starts to move in the back. Yet, the spices come forth with the birch and a bit of a smokiness, a kind of incense vibe. The heart is allegedly the most enjoyable phase as there's a lot of elements at play with this metallic "silver" vibe running throughout. The silver birch accord is the cornerstone of the composition intensified by hot and cold spices. At this stage, the scent reveals its leathery-smoky facet, not mild, somewhat harsh, wild, and masculine. I reckon the wildness and dirtiness come from the concoction of patchouli and lavender with its silver seeds just after the blossom.

Finally, the trail reveals itself in a bewitching combination of frankincense and mineral musk. Ainìt the white and mild musk preferably real mineral one you could find in Terre d'Hermes, which is a vegetable and mineral juice, made without animal by-products or musk, sustained by the elegance of cedar and guaiac woods.

To me, Silver Essence has a male character with a very balanced aroma, and honestly, I cannot recall any other scent I have in my collection that smells as similar to this. It's a fall/winter scent and a reasonably good buy for the price. If you spray consciously, it is suitable for working days and evenings, longevity is excellent 8 to 10 hours, while sillage goes not far from your arms. The main notes to my nose are dark coconut, leather birch tar, smoky incense, and creamy cedar.

Don't be shy, go and test it if you have a chance, and you won't regret it!

Higher level
Ferrari Silver Essence is another great surprise from this house, along with Essence Oud and Essence Musk.

Looks like Ferrari wants to climb to a higher level in fragrance market with these newest releases. There's no comparision with older releases: the new ones smells much more natural and better balanced.

Silver Essence is a wonderful coconut based fragrance, surrounded by a round woody note and some spices.

The drydown is absolutely great, with lots of sillage and a heavy projection. It lasts about 10 hours on my dry skin.

Definetely worth sampling, and why not buying?

The Latins called it argentum, and due to coconut I've neglected it for too long. Now I'm in love with it, so smoky, spicy, woody & oriental
