Reviews of Silver Essence

This is good stuff. Incense, cedar and spices. Really well blended and very interesting, different and mature. Not old man mature. More like you smell like you have your stuff together! The coconut gives this a very slight sweetness that pulls the frag together. Very good blind buy for those willing to stretch their palette. A non blind buy for those who play it safe and lean toward safe scents and freshies.

I like it, nice to smell and not offensive at all. Has similar DNA to other Ferrari scents like Uomo and Oud Essence. I'm not getting coconut from this but instead a synthetic woody-sweetness that is freshened up with some greens in the top, presumably "silver sage". Doesn't project much but the scent does linger for a good amount of time.

This is a really nice birch and coconut fragrance. Combining these two notes smells like those hard candy root beer or birch beer. After it settles down the birch really comes to the forefront and the coconut becomes less sweet. Projection and longevity are both good to very good on this EdP. If you like the note of birch and lack a masculine coconut scent or you like the smell of root beer. For myself this one is nice, but I find it hard to find a place or a time to wear it.

I disagree with sjg, and this not being amazing, because it is, Silver Essence is nothing shy of amazing. Because, how many men's fragrances can pull off an authentic coconut note, and maintain their masculinity. Not very many.

I got a mini bottle in a swap with somebody, and the moment I put it on my skin, I knew.. I knew I would be getting a bottle in the near future. Unfortunately, the availability is somewhat limited. There are mostly just tester bottles floating around the net, but for low prices. That said.. I got my hands on a tester fast, because I know soon.. this will be impossible to find.

Firstly, kudos to Ferrari for changing things up and going for better made fragrances. Lately their stuff has been good, notably, the Essence collection.

Silver Essence opens up with a robust coconut note, smells natural, and smells more like the rind of the coconut, than the pulp. It reminds me of coconut water too, because there's a juiciness there. It smooths out blending with a light dose of nutmeg and cinnamon, before a heavy incense and a peppery/cedar base take over and it dries down this way. The coconut goes for a good hour, sometimes even 2, which is awesome. The incense/pepper/cedar dominated dry down is breathtaking, and so simple.

Best of all, this is an EDP concentration; both projection and longevity surpassed my expectations. This definitely comes at me as a niche type of scent. The bottle is pretty nice too, as is the whole collection. Although it's silver, and looks like you wouldn't be able to see into it, you certainly can if you hold it to the light.

In my opinion, this is one of the better designer releases in recent memory, and one of the top releases from a "car" brand. This certainly puts the much overrated Bentley Intense to shame. If you see this one for under 30, tester or not, and you like coconut, pepper, incense, and cedar.. don't walk, jump... jump on it. You won't regret it. Give it a little time, and these will be completely gone from the American market, and only the people who jumped at the chance would have had them.

For the price, this is a pretty good scent. Nothing amazing, but pretty good. You get an icy blast with light pepper. Like Bark stated, you get a light coconut note with this one. It settles down to a light wood. Kind of synthetic, but one you may want to check out.

I'm not going to say I'm blown away by this, but for the price I obtained it for, I'd consider it a steal ($27 shipped for 3.4oz tester).

This starts out with an icy blast - wait a minute, that might be because the bottle arrived during -8 temperatures with wind chill factor at -38 here in Upstate New York - no, actually "Silver" seems appropriate as it's the first thing that comes to mind.

The first notes I notice are pepper and coconut, an interesting combination to start though the coconut turns rather sweet for a little while while other spices (I detect nutmeg and a bit of cinnamon, though neither are listed here), start to mingle before it delves into something woodier.

It's here that the sweetness of the coconut starts to take a backseat (though still present, it's not as sweet) and the spices come forth along with the birch and a bit of a smokiness/incense vibe. This is probably the most enjoyable phase as there's a lot of elements at play with this metallic "silver" vibe running throughout, giving it an interplay between cool and warm notes that's effect is somewhat reminiscent of Creed's Himalaya.

By the time it gets to the basenotes, everything has settled down and it's like somebody took a bottle of Azzaro's Visit, removed the "blue" and replaced it with "silver" while keeping the spices amped up a bit with coconut lingering in the background. As an EDP, this feels like it'll hang around on skin for quite a number of hours (I myself having only sprayed it about 40 minutes ago at this point so I'll have to wait and see).

This is the first Ferrari fragrance I've tried so I can't compare it to the quality of the others, but will say the Essence line piqued my curiosity as they appear to be of higher quality (I personally haven't much interest in trying any of the scents outside the Essence line). It's definitely a fall/winter scent and a fairly good buy for the price.
