  • All in all, I don't think I could tell this fragrance apart from the myriad fruity-musky scents out there - and I certainly wouldn't miss it

      To put it simply: if you love musk, you might like it.

      Or maybe not.

      According to the maker (independent evaluations of its composition are incredibly difficult to find), this musk-based fragrance perfume “begins with a luminous and vibrant fresh combination of cherry and waterfruits” (don’t ask me what “water fruits” are - but based on the scent alone, I suspect they mean watermelon) and a touch of “orange flower water” (I assume it’s hydrolat), followed by a “subtle

      and seductively quiet heart” (i.e. middle notes) of tulips, jasmine, red lily and lily-of-the-valley. The base note is “the consuming passion” that is musk.

      Well, musk I can definitely smell. In fact, it is the only note that I can honestly say I perceive at all. Yes, there is an altogether not entirely unpleasant fruity opening note, which on my skin evaporates in a matter of minutes, but musk, perhaps with a hint of sandalwood (although there is no ...

      • sandalwood in the composition), is the overall impression that this scent makes. Even though it is usuall marketed as a “floral”, I could not honestly classify it as that.

        On me, it has a strangely fluctuating effect: if I am in a good mood, it will enhance it and smell quite nice, if only for a a few minutes; if I am sad, it will weigh me down even further and smell boringly generic and “pedestrian” within a minute

        of applying it. (But I have noticed that to be true of many musk-based scents.)

        All in all, I don’t think I could tell this fragrance apart from the myriad fruity-musky scents out there - and I certainly wouldn’t miss it.

        To me, it smells like a drugstore fragrance - and not a very distinguished one, at that.

        Salvatore Ferragamo was one hell of a shoe designer (and shoemaker); and his brand still today employs top-notch designers.

        Master perfumers, however, it doesn’t.
