Reviews of Salvatore Ferragamo pour Homme

My wife told me she thought this smelled like an upscale hotel or spa. That made me more curious so I asked if that was something good to smell on a man. She just shrugged her shoulders and said, "it's a good smell".

I agree with her about the hotel/spa thing, this smells like upscale hair/skin products like you'd find in a spa. Nothing offensive and should be very pleasant to others but nothing exciting either.

Projection is moderate but should be fine when passing by others because it is kinda distinct. Not really a "cologne" smell.

Fressh, herbal, green and unique. I like it

Nice! I like its tangy, fig leaf vibe and its long-lasting, non-cloying quality. Enjoy the bits of spice in the heart notes that accent this great scent. Excellent for most any occasions.

Decent middle of the road scent that would work for the office or casual wear. Could be worn year round but isn't very strong or long lasting. Slightly spicy, some citrus and woods. For the price it would be ok to have in your collection.

I blind-bought 100ml of this for the princely sum of £20, from The FragranceShop's bargain bin after hearing rumours of discontinuation (which naturally serve to heighten a scent's appeal) and reading largely positive reviews. Mind, I had sore misgivings, based on remembrance of dubious responses to fig-heavy scents like Philosykos, but happily on this occasion the talcum powder was not required.

Fig is the loudest of the notes (green or barely ripe, not sugared or stewed), accompanied by grapefruit and a grassy vetiver base. There's a sort of ghostly clove note hovering in the background, but it's really nothing to be afraid of. The overall impression is clean, bright, fresh and uplifting. It doesn't smell cheap like that awful plasticky Ferragamo F Black. Longevity is excellent, especially of the fig and vetiver notes. Projection is limited, though, and I give it 8 sprays.

Edit: wearing this again today (October 26th) I am aware of a soft sandalwood base note, 8 hours in, following some mild physical exertion (no, not that; raking leaves if you must know).

Strong? Not really. Offensive? No, you're not going to send coworkers running or covering their nose.

For the first hour this scent smells exactly like Demeter's Sawdust, I thought that was funny.

Another funny thing is that the fig leaf fuses well with the cedar and amplifies the woodiness which brings to mind images of a gerbil/hamster cage.

Because of its simplicity, fig leaf/cedar and drydown of sandalwood it just does not impress me. Maybe for running errands or hanging out on weekends but not first date or formal event kind of fragrance.

It is of average sillage and longevity.
