Fresh floral musk
The house of Gianfranco Ferré is very under the radar, manly because it doesn't have any big fragrances on the market neither a strong marketing to support them.

This fragrance is a total ghost. There's almost no information about it, except some websites that carry this fragrance and supply the note list. Even the year of release isn't known for sure, although, i think it came out in 2020 just because my bottle is from 2020 and i didn't saw any information before that year. Perfumer is also unkown. The GF website doesn't have any information about fragrances neither the Angelini Beauty website, which is the producer/distributor of the brand. It lists Trussardi, Laura Biagiotti, Armand Basi and other brands but no mention about GF.

So, i came to know (and bought) this fragrance after seeing some Youtube videos about it from Scent Land channel. He gave high marks on it and i decided to try to find a bottle. It was very difficult because in Europe, only one bulgarian website had this one. I found a deal on a tester bottle and grab it before it became out of stock.

Thankfully, the bottle came with a cap which, btw, is nice and heavy. And talking about the presentation, it's quite nice. Blue juice, a metal plate with the name of the brand and the name of the fragrance and a nice heavy and transparent bottle. The sprayer is a bit strange. It's like a Dior sprayer, where you can control the amout of perfume that came out, but, it sprays a lot of juice and with a high length. So, i recommend you to spray from a distance.

In regards of smell, its super bright and fresh. Almost clean sheets after ironing. Really appealing and not sweet or synthetic like many contemporaries. It's based on a bergamot-jasmine-musk accord. Basically, starts a bit tart, super fresh and citrusy. The bergamot is very present but always with a clean, slightly powdery musk underneath it. The composition is rounded by a jasmine note that isn't indolic rather soft floral and delicate. The fragrance is not ultra complex nor static. It's fresh all the time but it mellows and rounds a bit when it reaches the drydown (after 2h) and starts to fade away after 4-5h.

The performance isn't great, specially in terms of projection but it lasts a good amount of time on skin. You can over apply it without a problem due to its fresh softness character. It's almost impossible to offend anyone with this. It's appealing, polite and casual. Excellent for work, gym or a walk on a beach side. Springtime scent manly, but it fits well the summer time temperatures. I wouldn't wore it in winter, just because i prefer denser perfumes for that time.

Overall, a good perfume that reminds me of 212 Men and CK One without being any of those. But the fresh floral-musk character is similar to those. Great value for the money. 3/5

Fougere italiano
After i saw on ytube a review of fougere ialiano I bought a tester botlle for 13 euro.
I am not sure if is a clasic fougere but it smell nice, a litle bit sintetic and on my skin i can feel it around 5 hours.
In the opening I can smell bergamote and something sweet maybe that jasmen.
I didnt smell the cedar maybe is there for suport and in the dry down i can fell the musk.
It is a very easy to wear cologne for spring and summer and for the money I paid for it I have no regrets.

Fougere or not?
With the very first spray I was immediately wandering: is this really a fougere?The sure is that this is not an ordinery fougere.As you possibly know fougere fragrances are made by combining lavender, oakmoss, and coumarin ( the very first formula created by Paul Parquet in 1882) and not at all the actual smell of a fern.In our days most fougere fragrances include some other notes like citrus, herbaceous, green, floral, and animalic notes.
In this blend I can not recognize the most of these notes,So what do I recognize?There are citrus notes (but I can not capture the bergamot),a bouquet of floral notes,some musk vibes (but not in the same way as JPG LM) and minimal rose pepper.The whole thing is very fresh,floral and sweet and less or not at all spicy and woody.In my nose is a little bit synthetic and it reminds me shower gel fragrances also,but this is not bad at all.My wife noticed that there is also a feminine vibe and she would like to wear it sometimes.
The opening is strong enough,the lovgevity satisfying (about 5 hours in my skin) and the sillage average.It is an every day,versatile fragrance for the warm weather.
Do I like it?Definitely, YES.
It is my Mediterranean fougere.
