Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina Eleganza review

signorina ele 1 (1 of 1)

So first of all, I didn’t think I’d like any flankers of Signorina because that smelled like the dregs of a marketing nightmare  aka like everything else on the market. Second of all this is not about that ridiculous limited gold edition that goes for something like 26.5k in Harrods (wha?). I mean I would love to meet the person who buys it, because they could make all my dreams come true and I would love to study them.

This is the Signorina Eleganza. Period. A very delicate creation that strikes a good balance between those top notes and the rest of the grounding roots. Perfumer Sophie Labbe – who seems to have created a lot of iconic scents and a lot of other mainstreamers I can get on board with such as Bulgaria’s Jasmin Noir and Calvin Klein’s Beauty – has also made the original. Mind boggles.

This little gem has a subtle but persistent pear note that whispers softly around the delicate osmanthus, almond and impression of a leather. Personally I can’t sniff the patchouli in there but probably it’s because it’s well mixed with the other notes. The longevity is unbelievable, even after a hot shower.

This is available in 50ml and 100ml for £60 and £81 at good ol’ Harrods, Selfridges, and at Feelunique.com for slightly cheaper.
