F by Ferragamo Black by Salvatore Ferragamo arrived to the market in the beginning of 2009, as an elegant evening and intensive version of the Original F by Ferragamo. The perfume was created by Olivier Pulge, who composed it of Levander absolute, balck pepper, coriander seed, labdanum and tonka. The new bottle is a reinterpretation of its antecedent, colored in black with silver logo.
F by Ferragamo Black can be found in 30, 50 and 100ml Eau de Toilette.
Ferragamo F. Black is very good juice for a low price. It is virtually the original of the modern male scents such as Villain, Sauvage and Bleu de Chanel, though notewise it is also similar to a stripped down Allure. While I didn’t rate Sauvage or Bleu good on scent and not unique (Allure I haven’t smelt so I’ll not include it), this scent while similar to those to it seems to me to smell better. This also maybe due to the fact that it is as much as a quarter of the price of the other two. In comparison to Villain it is slightly better.
Like Villain, Sauvage, there is a mix of lavender and pepper between the open and mid. While the pepper is very noticeable in this, it is in no way near headache territory like it can be with Villain, making it much more wearable. The scent projects quiet a bit, even at just neck sprays (I did this this afternoon when I got home from work after I previously sprayed my neck and wrists for work) and I smelt it linger for around 4 hours after spraying. I notice as a skin scent, it lasts another 4/5 or so, making it last the work test. Seasonal wise, I see this from fall until spring as a night scent but can be light enough for the daytime.
