Surprising
Every time I smell a Ferragamo fragrance I'm blown away. Not because it's one of the best I've ever smelled, but because for these prices I'm expecting a cheap scent. And it's not. Not one bit.
It's rich, smooth, different, sweet and a bit balsamic, a fresh smell with a warm feeling.
Fig, rose, cardamom and vetiver are the main players to my nose, and I must say: the fig-rose accord is something divine.
Maybe to me it's not one of the best fragrances I've ever smelled, but guys, this is awesome nonetheless. Try it!

Italian elegance
Everytime I smells this I associate it with early mornings, sun shining through the leafs of exotic trees in a beautifully arranged garden, a gentlemen dressed all in white getting in his vintage roadster and leaving for a walk in the city. It's fresh, a bit sweet and for my nose rather unique. It has a nostalgic feel to it, just like an italian movie from the early ninetees. Outstanding scent for the price tag.

Scentrack: Ornella Vanoni – L’Appuntamento

As I was born and raised on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea the beautiful smell of fig leaf is my natural habitat (another one is tomato leaf). The smell of fig leaf reminds me of my garden in the small seaside resort. If I must choose just one note considered as personal, the fig leaf is the note. That is the reason I love Salvatore Ferragamo Pour Homme. This fragrance is a well done masculine fig leaf. The essence of ancient Mediterranean culture, and Italian passion for life are preserved in this great-looking Ferragamo bottle.
Ferragamo pour Homme opens with a realistic, milky fig leaf note, accompanied by a fresh neroli. This Mediterranean fresh opening is garnered with a hefty dose of cardamom, similar to the one observed in Costume National Homme. The heart of this fragrance is flowery. Subtle jasmine, soft rose, and pale old school carnation. The base is made of vetiver, clean soapy musk, and cedar. This woody character of the base gives the whole composition a pronounced masculine twist.

Rating: 7.5/10

Unique Elegance Forgotten
The brand Salvatore Ferragamo mainly focuses on the mainstream, however, there was one really outstanding exception: Salvatore Ferragamo pour Homme.

The concept of this fragrance was absolutely innovative. On first sight, it could be filed under fig leaf fragrance. But...whereas it is that very and fresh green note that most fig leaf fragrances bring to the stage, Salvatore Ferragamo pour Homme puts it into a different context.

I don't really like the well known straightforward fig leaf scents such as Diptyque's Philosykos or L'Artisan Parfumeur Premier Figuier. Fig leaf scent is about what you get if you pick leaves from a bush and grind them with your hands. For a perfume, straightforward fig leaf is too much nature, and not enough artistry. This is where Salvatore Ferragamo comes in.

Salvatore Ferragamo pour Homme seems to combine the fresh fig leaf with the darker and more robust vetiver, in equal parts, and the outcome is a unique accord of sheer elegance. The fragrance pyramid is unusually opulent, and with spicy, woody, floral, leather notes and musk, it contains ingredients of all scent directions and hardly anything can be detected as such. In my perception all these notes are aimed at balancing and investigating this new unique accord making the result even more elegant.

There is not a lot of development in this fragrance, eventually some masculine musky notes blend in when the base is reached.

Uniqueness and elegance make Salvatore Ferragamo pour Homme a fragrance which you might not get away unnoticed when you wear it. Concerning its uniqueness, I would put it on the the same level as Prada's Amber pour Homme and the use of violet in there.

It is hard to understand why this great way of handling fig leaf has hardly been seized as a suggestion by other perfumers. Dolce & Galbana's Velvet Vetiver is not really a gent's cologne. Micallef's Richard was only produced once in a small batch as a signatory perfume for Beauty Affair in Düsseldorf. There seems to be only one other men's perfume currently on the market where this special accord can be found: Charriol's Royal Gold for Men. However, a fig leaf and vetiver combo is only top notes in there with a further development of a completely different, oriental direction.

Salvatore Ferragamo pour Homme has been discontinued for a while, but some bottles can still be found on the net for small money. I already put another 100 ml bottle on stock, and I recommend a blind buy even just to get acquainted with an accord that is currently missing in perfumery.

Fresh & woody fig leaf and a fine fragrance for Spring and Fall. Easy to please the people around you. Quite elegant but... boring.
