    F pour Homme Black by Salvatore Ferragamo

    Intriguing at the beginning this new italian concoction that comes in this phase out running accross Chanel Allure, Joop Nightflight and the Badedas Noir shower foam (or if you prefer La Martina Cuero) with a subdued patchouli in the blend. I have to say in the meanwhile that first of all this is not expensive, second is a bracing sporty/casual fragrance (better) for the evening, third it starts semi fruity-aquatic (but not properly ozonic) and ends down with a mossy/ambery labdanum (plus a touch of patchouli) still holding a part of its fresh (simil berries) aqueous initial fruitiness. The beginning is citrusy (lemon/orange) and aqueous because of its watery and dusty aromatic lavender with its bracing coriander. The problem is the dry down when the synthetic, barely smokey and fruity amber/labdanum starts to rise up a bit powdery, exuding an YSL La nuit de l'Homme's type of feel that is so boring to me. Other problem is that the dry down unveils in the air the synthetic feel that is sheer since the beginning where anyway it's less notable because of the general freshness. Anyway, an acceptable tear in this huge olfactory ocean.
    P.S: i'm sorry, i have to change soon my rating cause after a while the smell becomes really too much synthetic on my skin.
