I can't believe I forgot to write a review about that one. I did write one though, on the Croatian counterpart of Fragrantica, 13.06.2013. so I'll basically rewrite it here in English, however not in a complete detail.
So, Fendi huh? A bit retro in the initial wave, very spicy and in style quite close between Burberry London (minus boozy, port wine feel) and Moschino Forever. More emphasys on Moschino Forever.
Spices and leather notes are rather neatly combined and that makes Fendi smell quite refined. Can't say exactly when to wear it. It has some depth and weight so it can be worn during colder days, yet again it so uninvasive and sort of light at the same time so it's very wearable during warm periods. Warm and thick, however also gentle and mild, but not weak. Very urban, both formal and casual.
Too bad it's discontinued so soon along with flankers.
A very good grabber ladies evening.Everything about FAN di FENDI drips class,subtlety and quality,right down to their elegant and understated packaging.It is a success after FENDI UOMO.Classic yes,but not outdated.I found it Full balance between a Classic style and a Modern way. Glamorous,Sweet,Masculine, Sensual yet Elegant.Charming,Rich and Romantic.
The notes of citruses and cardamom rest over a soft heart mixed with pink peper and basil,its base is composed of soft woody notes and leather for a masculine and charismatic scent that Makes you feel Handsome.In fact It designed to present a unique and mysterious edge with a harmonious blend of masculine notes.
FAN di FENDI PH is a fragrance for those special occasions out or that time alone with your special one.ideal for evening wear in a rainy Autumn.It is not so sweet yet sweet,not so subtle,yet subtle.May not appeal to the younger set,but an essential classic for the more mature crowd. The bottle is Elegant and Gorgeous as Reflects the scent.Ladies absolutely love it on a dandy man!
Longevity?Very Good on my skin.
Very nice soft landing. Although not an explicit statement to the notes of the ozone, and water has effect. Pears used very pleasant smell. Opening was incredibly nice to me. Vuruculuk in moderate level.
Middle notes in the smell when we came to have a taste for the abstract. Rose, jasmine, tuberose trying, but I'm getting obvious. The scent of water from the bottom of the bottom continues. Persistence and farkedilirlik have dropped considerably.
When we come to the end smell was quite weak. Leather, suede, patchouli and going through the final note, yes, but so weak that really hard to get them. The persistence of odor and farkedilirlig is traveling somewhere. Other than that, though in a manner somewhat feminine scent is quite nice.
Top: mandarin, pear, black currant, pink pepper.
Heart: Rose, Jasmine, Tuberose.
Base: Leather, Patchouli, Suede.
Good fragrance, but no originality. Spicy cedary combo that starts with some elements of camphor in the opening. Not a bad thing especially in cold weather or air conditioning...lends an air of crispness. All that fades away and you a left with the generic spices that have dominated mens fragrance of late and made popular by Spicebomb.
So why the thumbs up? Because it is not bad. Just not a standout original and you can't go wrong wearing it.
Well, it seems Fendi has overhauled it's original man's scent with a softer sillage and a much nicer bottle. Which is exactly what I thought they should do. And they seem to have done it well. But since I have a full bottle of the original, I will probably never have to buy this.
