Fresh-fruity freedom ... Merci, Monsieur Polge
And once again such a niche fragrance surprise, which I found thanks to this forum. My name came directly to perfumer Olivier Polge, who is responsible for two of my favourite fragrances: Bleu de Chanel and Allure Homme Sport. Can Chanel's supposed "house and court alchemist" do so much wrong? Probably not! Polges Kenzo fragrances are also fine water, even if they don't really play in my league of fragrances, but that's just a matter of taste.

And now to F, which happens to be an excellent match for my first and member name! :-) And yes: It also suits me, because it combines freshness, fruit (already again F), but also a discreet spice in its own way. No ingredient stands out unpleasantly here, which I would have expected from the "leathery notes" in advance, but which only provide the foundation for the cuddly fresh superstructure.

All in all I would assume a year-round freshness, which can be worn during the warm season, but is still not a typical summer scent. When I think of the fruiting body I do not inevitably think of apples, but there are also over 20,000 apple varieties (no joke). And so, as one always calls the citrus fruits neatly, one should perhaps also think of it with apples! ;-) But I digress: Lavender and pepper always work for me, actually. Unfortunately I can't say how Amber and Labdanum smell on their own, at least the overall composition and clearly the price of 30,- € for 100 ml convinces me. The bottle may not exactly be a decoration, but it depends on the contents, doesn't it?

F Aqua for Ferragamo pour Homme (8.375/10)
Scent
The scent of this fragrance is more to aqua scent especially on the top notes. The scent of aqua is obviously appear on it. When it goes to middle and base notes, the musky-spicy scent is taking over.

Longevity
The hold of the scent is okay but very suitable for evening and night use.
For non 4-seasons countries, the longevity can be reach around 4-5 hours on day and 5-6 hours on evening and night.
For the 4-seasons countries, the longevity is around 6-7 hours.

Performance
The performance is a bit different from opening-top notes and middle-base notes. The aqua scent give a very sentimental projection on the beginning, and musky-spicy scent on the middle notes give a better projection.

Sillage
The sillage is okay especially on middle notes.

Uniqueness
The uniqueness of this fragrance is on the middle note scent. The bottle design is also one of the uniqueness of this fragrance.

Bottle Design
This fragrance's bottle design is nice and a bit attracted. It feels complete when hold and use this F for Ferragamo pour Homme.

F is for...
Olivier Polge (whose compositions I always highly anticipate) levitates a promising, leather and apple accord -on top an "ozonic" cloud of pepper. But the result is unremarkable, albeit agreeable. I kept hoping for a more assertive "Combo" to come along and save this fragrance from Pleasantville. But alas, the all too synthetic leather, (or rather “pleather” note), misplaced in the "base" of it's note pyramid, never showed up much in the sillage of this fragrance. Nor anywhere else beyond my subconscious. Which Leaves this fragrance defenseless in the "Ring" -against similarly styled (office friendly signatures) like the superior YSL L'homme, Guerlain's mojito-inspired "Homme", or heck, even "Bvlgari Man" !

Good luck, "F". As the Mens fragrance market closes in on you... That "F" may take on a Whole... New... Meaning... (LOL).

Longevity:9/10(in base)
Projection:(Summer temperatures:8/10
(more detectable by others than the wearer)
Art/Creatives:7/10(bottle, concept, and scent)
How: Spring and Summer, day, business, office,
casual, great work horse fragrance.
