Heavy Metal Pleasures
Upon initial application of FERRAGAMO I was having a serious déjà senti experience. Then suddenly I remembered what this reminds me of: PLEASURES by Estee Lauder. I have not worn PLEASURES in a long time, though at one point I was trying to convince myself that I liked it and managed to get through nearly half a bottle. I cannot say that they smell the same, but they make me feel the same, if that makes any sense.

FERRAGAMO, too, has a strong peony presence, which apparently does not sit well with me--at least in what appear to be certain synthetic renditions. This edp seems rather clean, just as PLEASURES does in some ways, but for some reason it does not agree with my body's chemistry. Rather than soapy or green, I find these fragrances to be slightly metallic. Although they are not repugnant or emetic, I don't find them particularly agreeable or enticing either. In general, I find the fragrances of this house somewhat synthetic, so they are always touch and go with me. On good days, they work. On bad days, they don't.

That said, FERRAGAMO would appeal, I think, to anyone who loves PLEASURES. Best suited for summertime, I think.

Shining green citrusy floral
This starts out green, citrusy and floral with a bit of a spicy/peppery kick. Ferragamo pour Femme brings to mind a grassy wildflower meadow on a cloudless spring day. The top is a lovely blend of flowers, citruses and green grass. This scent has such a fresh, bright, yet soft and classicly romantic feel to it.

No specifc flower stands out to me above the rest, but I probably detect the rose and lily of the valley the most. The florals here are very fresh, clear and vibrant, not jarring or sharp at all. If anyone remembers the sadly discontinued Clarins Elysium, this reminds me a lot of that scent. I guess that this is technically a fruity floral, but not in the current trendy, candy-sweet way at all. It is more sophisticated than that, but still young at heart.

The drydown reveals some similarities to the drydown of Versace Versense, with it's transparent musk and hint of woods, but here it is of a more green floral character here than a citrus one. At this point, Ferragamo pour Femme starts to move away from the floral/fruity-floral category and a bit more into floral woody musk territory, all the while retaining it's fresh green vibrancy.

I picked this up blind from TJMaxx for $19.99 and am so glad I did. I can't wait to wear this come spring.

Peppery citrus
I really do enjoy wearing Salvatore Ferragamo. It's certainly a different type of fragrance, not your typical fruity scent. It is much more complex than most other perfumes I've tried.

Firstly, I will review this fragrance by describing how it smells on paper and on my skin, because they both differ considerably.

On paper Salvatore Ferragamo begins as a soft, almost soapy and refreshing blend of grapefruit, green notes, black currant and bergamot. However on my skin the spices are much more prominent and I can clearly smell the pepper, coconut and anise.

The middle notes are so beautiful, flowery and sweet on both skin and paper. The rose note is delicate and fresh, while the spices mantain that unique balance in the opening. At this point I much prefer the fragrance when worn on the skin because it has much more 'oomph' and character than on paper.

There is no doubt in my mind that this is a very classy scent, which is a truly hard to find characteristic in most fruity fragrances these days.

Salvatore Ferragamo is sure to impress, captivate and be complimented this Summer, so I urge anyone to try this amazing scent.
