Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina In Rosso Limited Edition
You can’t really see the background of this pretty box, but behind the fragrance sits an abstract cut-out skyline of Florence which is a lovely touch and makes opening the box a bit more special. I’m quite a fan of this fragrance although I don’t have many reference points for Ferragamo (although a quick search shows me a £10,610.00 bag!! yikes!). Obviously, Ferragamo is a fashion house but it’s not one I aspire to or have any connection with so the fragrance needs to really stand on its own two feet, unlike say, Chanel or Dior.
The fragrance itself is powdery and sweet in a kind of clean way. Officially, it’s fruity floriental but my nose only wants the flowers! Jasmine, rose, and rose peony are kind of magical. It’s got notes of pannacotta that appear creamily and gently in the dry down – I hate a fragrance that screams ‘pudding’ – and there’s a whiff of patchouli in the base. However, these notes have been given a light hand and I find it an elegant fragrance. It’s £60 HERE and I thought it would be a lot more.
