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
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.
