I’ve been wearing F by Ferragamo pour Homme diligently for a few days now, and still can’t decide if it’s great or merely good. But I think I know why now…
A few reviews on Fragrantica seem to perceive a link to Terre d’Hermes that is a bit contentious and doesn’t come through in the notes. Likewise, several reviewers mention that it projects well and is more noticeable by others than by the wearer. Together that makes me think that there is a hefty dose of Iso E Super or one of its non-IFF analogs.
In the end, F is pleasant, clean and subtle with just enough edge from the pepper notes to have a unique-ish character. Next, I’ll probably move on to the flankers 🙂
Notes: Lavender, Apple / Black Pepper / Labdanum, Leather?, Amber?
