    Default Ferragamo F Black ( Lavender Lovers Must ? )

    Hello,

    Ferragamo F Black https://www.basenotes.net/ID26130543.html

    Is Ferragamo F black, a fragrance based in Lavender ?
    is the apple note prominet ?

    I would like to know your opinions and thoughts about this fragrance,
    Do you think it is a must for Lavender Lovers?

    From reviews, it looks a Powdery lavander, like Caron Pour Homme
    but more complex and dense with ladbanum. Maybe something between Prada Amber Pour Homme and Caron Pour Homme ?

    or something like a cheap version of YSL La Nuit , with apple, lavender and tonka ?

    Is F Ferragamo black easy wearing in summer as signature scent ?

    thanks

    I wasn't impressed by it. It's lavender-dominant, but it's a very synthetic lavender. If you're looking for a summertime fougere, you can do much better.

    IMO No.

    I enjoy this one and have added a backup bottle of it, it’s a unique take imo and super versatile which is what drew me to it after first wearing it. It’s smooth and smells excellent nothing too crazy but serves a purpose as a Swiss Army knife style fragrance at $25 easily the best in its price range I’d check it out worth it imo.

    The the lavender notes are quite smoothly rendered in this one, they are neither the dominant ones nor with a craftiness reaching the same level as in the Caron or the Parda renditions of this note

    For a lavender lover - no not really. Synthetic and modern smelling. Pour un homme de Caron I would call a must for lavender lovers.

    I've only smelled F black in a drug store, but it smelled an awful lot like La Nuit De L'homme if memory serves me correctly - a scent that is only okay for my taste
