    Exclamation Fan di Fendi Pour Homme

    Fendi returns for men!....killer bottle too!







    This masculine scent aims at mysterious, sophisticated and urban men who radiate charisma and modern elegance. Therefore, the composition tends to be both fresh and modern, as well as classic and refined. Its character is fresh woody-aromatic, created by perfumers Francois Demachy, Delphine Lebeau-Krowiak and Benoit Lapouza.

    YES! YES! YES! *serious fist-pumping*

    I like the beginning of the women's Fan di Fendi - clear references to the old Theorema, though very faint. Would love to see where this one goes. And really like seeing Demachy's name on this. I respect what he did with Aqua Fahrenheit, even though it has a facet-clash that I personally can't handle. Makes me hopeful that he snuck some gravitas into this.

    PS - Not sure about title - you may need an edit. It's "Pour Homme" on the box. Gotta admit, I kinda like Uomo better, though!

    I will keep an eye out for this, though it's hardly likely it will be coming to Australia any time soon. I will be surprised if it is anywhere near as good as Fendi Uomo.

    I smelled the feminine last Christmas, and at the time I sensed no similarity to Theorema whatsoever (even though I was hoping!)...all I got was a pink bubblegum topnote that vanished in minutes, leaving a not-unpleasant fruity floriental kind of thing. Not bad...if you like pink bubblegum.

    I know Theorema. Theorema was a friend of mine. This ain't no Theorema.

    TO FENDI: I DON'T CARE WHAT ELSE YOU DO, BUT BRING BACK THEOREMA!

    Fan di Fendi pour Homme blends notes of citrus with soft woody tones and touches of basil, cardamom, red pepper and leather.

    I like red pepper in my juice ...Patou pour homme revisited? ...doubtful but looking forward to trying this at Saks.

    I understand it will launch with the women's Fan di Fendi Extreme in the fall. I will watch out for both.

    I could try it at Douglas a week ago. It's characteristic, better than the majority of the recent designer frags I've met.

    Tested yesterday...sweet citrus-y and little spicy opening (tangerine and pink pepper) to which are added within few minutes some powdery-spicy-woody notes (cardamom, sweet woods). This whole combination remains unchanged for about 1 hr. when smooth leather and some faint green-woody like notes join in (basil, patchouli?). I also detect some tonka-bean far in the dry down (as in many 'modern' releases these days) so I would say it has some resemblances here (up to a certain extent) with 1 Million, Moschino Forever or Gucci Guilty, but with a dryer feeling overall, imo. Not bad at all. I'll give 7/10 after this first testing.

    I just tried it out on paper again. It has been at The Bay store for a while now. Unfortunately, everytime I test it out, I don't have room on my skin ( I don't go shopping often so I have to make the best of the situation by sampling as much as I can). This was my second testing on paper.

    I like the fragrance. I would hate to use a comparission to Paco Rabanne 1 Million. I just find that one far too sweet and fruity. Coincidently enough, 2 young ladies for talking to each other in another shop and I overheard one of them say how much they loved 1 Million ( she called it Paco Rabanne 1 in a Million ). So if you like girls, this is your scent I guess.

    I agree with Sandy, it does indeed have a better characteristic than most new releases. Is it "stop me in my tracks" amazing ? No, but it is nice and I would rather smell this in public than many other fragrances.

    VanAllan seems to have a good handle on the notes. It ends up being a restrained sweet woodsy scent. I am terrible at the notes and accords, so I am glad he posted here before me. Fan di Fendi pour Homme seems to always be easy going, restrained, but smells nice. Even the opening is very calm, but nice. Well done spice in here.

    The problem with these dept store fragrances is that they are quite pricey. I am not sure what the price on this one was, but I would imagine it would be in Spicebomb's price range ( $90 ?). But who knows. No matter what the fragrance, you want good value for your money. We all need those day to day fragrances, because sometimes we can't drain the juice level from all out discontinued fragrances. At least I can't, so I will give this a shot on skin and see its potential.

    Thanks VanAllan & Surfacing! I think I'll check it out at The Bay tomorrow. There might be something interesting going on here - I like the sound of there being a 'dryness' to it. This could be one to reach for when you're undecided - especially in the colder months? Fingers crossed.

    it's nice and delicate but nothing compared to Fendi Uomo, just a pale ghost of past glory!
    nice scent I own but won't re buy it!
