F by Ferragamo Black EDT description
F by Ferragamo Black is a lavender lover’s dream scent. A sweet, clean, and rich lavender top note emanates out of the top, with its enveloping aura of buttoned-up confidence at the peak of freshness. If lavender’s gentlemanly civility and air of rakish, well-heeled charm signifies luxury to you, F by Ferragamo Black might be the most luxurious cologne you’ll ever try.
Snapping black pepper and light, sheer coriander subtly bring up their heated dry spice underneath the soaring lavender, adding a sharp edge to the lavender’s lofty herbal side. The crisp pepper imparts a dark, masculine energy and drive to the heart of Ferragamo Black, as the waxy tang of coriander hums along in the background, mirroring the clean, soapy vibe of the lavender top note.
The combination of an exclusive lavender top note with heated spices in the heart lends Ferragamo F Black an immediate rush of masculine physicality; it’s an assertive, but also refined and assured cologne.
The base of labdanum and tonka bean tempers the heat from the spicy heart and turns it instead to a smoky, vanillic, and resinous dry down. Tonka bean’s natural balance of dessert sweetness and tangy, patchouli-esque spice shines as Ferragamo Black fades down. The labdanum adds smooth, smoky trails of rich, resinous vanilla as the black pepper heart blends into the base.
As Ferragamo Black enters its last stages, you come to realize this is a cologne with quite a seductive story behind it, expressed through layers of light aromatics and increasingly heavy spices. The lavender, black pepper, and tonka bean slyly reveal shadowy depths of tempting, sensual distraction. By the time this fragrance ends, it has taken you on a journey from cheery cleanliness straight through to an oily, smoky afterglow of spiky sweet notes. It is undeniably compelling, taut, and masculine scent, and ideal for a chance meeting that ends up late into the night.
