Golden Fruity Ricey Iris
3 April 2013
Summary: It is rare for me to rave about a fruity-floral perfume, but Gianfranco Ferré FERRE edp (2005) is an exceptional case of such a creation fully realized. The fruits named in the hierarchy are undeniably present--melon and pineapple--but somehow they are executed much better than usual. Ironically, melon and pineapple are two of my least favorite notes in perfumery, yet in this composition they really work.
Summary: There's a whole lotta white florals in the composition, and I normally don't like white flowers, but I like this. It feels like a floral aldehyde, in a 1980s style but not quite as loud. I get a bit of powdery orris, plus the oiliness of benzoin. Those two accords really balance out the florals in the arrangement to me, making this a floral fragrance that I like to wear rather than one that I'd avoid.
Summary: I have been using this perfume now for 20 yrs and it never fails to draw compliments. It is not an overpowering perfume, but it sure gets noticed. I wear it everyday that is how versatile this perfume is.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Long-Lasting, Not Overpowering, Sensual, Sexy
Summary: Had the pleasure of meeting the 'Man' before he passed away and he recognised that I was wearing his classic perfume. Never wear anything else, no other perfume matches it and I've sampled many.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Great Value, Long-Lasting, Sensual, Sexy, Timeless
