Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume
I admit that I’m shallow and I avoided trying Fan di Fendi because of the Giorgio-ish color scheme. It scared me. Well, the EDT is a little less Giorgi-scario.
Fan di Fendi opens as a soapy, clean citrus floral. I do pick up on the “bergamot green tea” and this gives the fragrance some lift; however, there is something hefty in Fan di Fendi. This thickness reminds me of mimosa mixed with blackcurrant jam and a spoonful of marmalade. At the base I get this powdery musk with pear and a hint a “suede”. Despite the notes and my description, Fan di Fendi is a rather “clean” fragrance. It reminds me of soap and dusting powder.
Notes listed include lemon petit grain, tangerine, green tea, blackcurrant, broom flower absolute, yellow jasmine, patchouli and soft leather. Launched 2010. PERFUMERS – Delphine Lebeau-Krowiak and Francois Demachy
Give Fan di Fendi a try if you like abstract florals or if you like perfumes like Heidi Klum Shine, Bvlgari Pour Femme, Penhaligon’s Artemisia and/or A Dozen Roses Electron.
The Fan di Fendi EDT retails for $69 at Sephora. You can also find it on discount at Fragrancenet.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Abstract floral and stuff. I don’t have an opinion one way or another with this fragrance. Honestly I forget that I’m wearing it and what it smells like. Add this to the long list of “safe” perfumes by designer brands. I have a feeling that we’re all going to forget about this one.

This has me wondering if I have tested the EDP or EDT. I’ll have to take a look next time I am at the store, as this actually sounds like something I might like, and I didn’t like this when I first tested it.
I had a manufacturer’s sample. I thought it was the EDP but while in store, I sniffed the EDP and it wasn’t what I remembered, went home and I had the EDT. From my memory (and not side by side comparison), they smelled different. And nothing at all like the Giorgio-ish thing I had created in my head 😉
I find it hard to forgive Fendi for retiring the original Fendi Donna. Nothing they have done since has made me smile.

They don’t deserve our forgiveness for getting rid of Donna.
