Reviews of Ferré

Beautiful, sophisticated, soft and feminine.
The opening is fruity floral without being cloying or sticky.
The drydown is a vanillaic smoky goodness tempered by the Basmati Rice note...quite genius me thinks. It is effortless in its beauty, not showy at all, just pleasant and mature without being stuffy. I like it.

I am astounded both by the contents of the eight prior reviews and the overwhelmingly positive descriptions. These have nothing to do with my experience of the scent.

My impression is of a masculine floral fougere, similar to, but not as powerful as, the classic men's scents of the 1980s. I get none of the fruit notes and no sweetness at all from the florals mentioned. The dry down experience is one of refined lavender and iris with a subtle, brown sugar background.

It is pleasant, but in no way exceptional nor outstanding. Turin gave it four stars and called it an "aldehydic floral," mentioning its provenance as an improved Iris Poudre, created by the same perfumer, Bourdon, who brought that fragrance to life for Malle.

Amazed this was created for women, as it does not fit the profile at all.

FERRE EDP is a crisp floral fragrance meant to express the emotion of Love at first sight.Absolutely Beautiful.It is
surprising femininity with a hint of Glamor.A Flowery example like the way the air smells after a spring rain. Romantic,Classy,Ladylike,Chic,Lovely, Generous,Subtle and Sensational.

Melon and Pineapple blends together and combined with a hint of opulent Iris and the lingering touch of sheer Musk and Vanilla as It has a nice finish on my skin not too powdery not too overwhelming but also quite Sweet and Lovely.You feel Sophisticated and Regal with this smell.

This Sophisticated Floral is one of those fragrances that truly makes you aware of your femininity. A great scent for any occasion especially ROMANTIC moments as makes your Lover who wants hold you with himself and enjoy you Sense.It is also a wedding scent.The shape of the bottle is Elegant.I would recommend this EDP to a Lady (25/35 years old)who wants to feel Elegant Ladylike and Romantic.


Longevity?Good on my skin.

Smelling Ferré is like visualizing imaginary pale purple ribbons trailing from your wrists as you carry this scent into the world. It finds the common angle of iris, woods, berries, aldehydes, musks. It shows a textbook evolution with the tight yet extravagant range of its topnotes moving to a compressed woody-floral drydown with a surprising resemblance of construction, if not scent, to the drydown of Patou's 1000. Throughout the evolution from top to base, Ferré continues to suggest its purple hue, but because of its tight focus feels like a stripe rather than a large swath of color.

For those who love the pretty-boy aspect of Dior Homme, Ferré is one assured step further in that direction.

This is a fruity little iris fragrance that is lush, rich and very wearable.
The opening is thick and luscious fruit, with the pineapple standing out to me. But this fruit is rich and well blended into the theme of the fragrance - the iris.
The iris is introduced as a soft powder, supported by a floral blend that highlights magnolia and jasmine. The magnolia creaminess offsets the powder for a delightful soft scent.
The drydown gets a little Kenzo-ish with the basmati rice note popping up, but it rights itself with some faint wood and vetiver. Never crisp, but instead, blended softness.
Possibly a very distant cousin, at best, to Malle's Iris Poudre, but a nice iris based fragrance in it's own right. It is certainly worth a sniff for those that might struggle with earthy iris, as this is as smooth as it gets for an iris-centric fragrance. Beautiful use of fruit notes, well blended soft florals with an easy and smooth drydown.
Worth the very reasonable cost of admission!

This is a totally gorgeous scent!
I adore this way it uses iris as the main player -
utilising the roots, leaves and flowers to make sure
it is not overlooked! I feel so pampered and confident
when I wear this gem by Pierre Boudon.
