    Default Ferre's Pontaccio 21 - Worth buying?

    Hello there,

    I've got accross a 100 ml / 3.3 Oz bottle for USD 58.00, and sice there is no tester, I am wondering if it is worth buying. You might as well look at my wardrobe and see if there is something around similar to it in terms of top/mid/basenotes that would not make it worth paying that amount of money.

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    It's a hard one to find now days. I guess it resembles Aramis and it is quite classically structured, only it is a bit less intense than the classics. It's very nice. I was looking to buy but my source sold out before I got the order in.

    It is available in both EDT and EDC concentrations,but I was unable to got some info for the latter.
    The words I would pick from the reviews are:citrusy,leathery,floral and retro.This is not watered down stuff.
    I rarely grab my EDT bottle:Too 'old school' for my taste,but not too formal,so it could be worn in daily basis.
    It's never too late to mend.

    It gets good comments in the review department. But I have the impression nobody really loves this quality fragrance. I don't get retro out of it, nor a strong resemblance to the eighties - have I lived on another planet then? To me it's a dry, very decent neo-classic. I bought it blind at half price, and I have not regretted the purchase. But then I forgot wearing it, and now I wouldn't miss it much if it wasn't there.

    Has anyone seen a clip from the - excellent! - D&G Milano 2010/11 fashion show? Pontaccio is the perfect match to what the masters have in store for the next winter !

    That's my opinion of it too. I own two bottles of it.

    It definitely is. I love the dry rose accord in it. It's sophisticated and seductive at the same time.

    Is there any scent similar of this?? I loved so much, but know is very difficult to find it... a shame... Any fan? I would know if it exists any modern variation of this "retro" fragance, or any "clon".

    Thank you
