I bought this in an airport after the TSA had confiscated my perfume. What a big surprise...Lovely! Smells like a more modern Arpege, with more woodiness. Very elegant, and definitely NOT a unisex scent
I totally agree with VintageVogue - I love this, and when I heard it was discontinued I bought a large bottle. I find it hard to describe perfumes, but this is quite different from most of the modern ones which I particularly dislike. I get favourable comments whenever I wear this.
My understanding is that Ferre by Ferre has been discontinued. That’s a real shame, because this is an artful and avant-garde floral-aldehyde which reminds me quite a bit of Caron’s original Fleurs de Rocaille (1933), only I like this one better. If you’re confused by all the fragrances which bear the Ferre label, you’re likely not alone. Ferre by Ferre is housed in a beautiful gold-capped black boule which comes in a shiny gold box. This is a nice Italian mélange which opens with orange blossom, lemon, bergamot, peach, ylang-ylang, and butterbush. The heart consists of rose, jasmine, orris, mimosa, violet, passion fruit, violet, cassia, lily of the valley, and carnation. The base is of vanilla, cedar, sandalwood, precious spices, amber, vetiver and musk. Ferre by Ferre has good staying power and is perfect for an elegant evening engagement. It’s a complex, multi-layered scent. Cerebral, and not for one who likes the cookie-cutter fragrances which seem to come out daily. For a woman who is not afraid to be different.
