Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina EDP Perfume Review

Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

As long as I keep reviewing designer perfumes, I’m going to keep reviewing perfumes in pink bottles marketed to women. Some things in life are predictable (thus, comforting) like this.

Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina has the sort of opening that has been in designer women’s perfumes for the past decade. It’s pink pepper, red berries and polite florals. It’s the usual “pink” fruity-floral except this time, there’s more sugar cubes. It’s radiant and pleasant, although it doesn’t stand out as original. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, because it is a pleasant perfume. The heart is like jammy abstract florals and sugar cubes. Signorina becomes milkier with wear. Panna cotta is an accord listed but I wouldn’t say it was immediately recognizable. It just smells like a milky, sweet vanilla and red berries. The dry-down is a sweet, creamy gourmand vanilla and sugar.

Signorina reminds me of everything but at the same time reminds me of nothing. As I’ve already mentioned, it’s pleasant to wear but I don’t usually wear things like this. To sum up my review, I’m not the target demographic of Signorina (the bottle basically describes its target market). I get the feeling that this perfume leans younger or at least younger at heart than me. I mean, the word “signorina” means “young lady” in Italian.

Notes listed include pink pepper, red currant, jasmine, rose, peony, patchouli, pannacotta and musk. Launched in 2014. PERFUMERS – Sophie Labbe and Juliette Karagueuzoglou

Give Signorina a try if you like gourmand/sweet fruity-florals (usually in pink bottles). Or perfumes like One Direction One Moment, Shakira S Eau Florale, Calvin Klein CK One Shock for Her, ST Dupont 58 Ave. Montaigne Femme. Mugler Angel summer flankers and/or By Kilian In the Garden of Good and Evil.

Projection and longevity are average.

Signorina comes in two sizes with prices ranging from $79 to $99 at Nordstrom. It can sometimes be found at discounters like for cheaper.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONMilky fruity-floral. Basically, it’s exactly what you’d expect from a pink bottle of perfume wearing a big ‘ole pink bow.

    1. They do! And what kills me is that pink peppercorn isn’t bad at all. It’s fruity/spicy and effervescent. It’s just that everyone did the EXACT same thing with it over and over again. I have faith in its redemption 😉

    2. Agreed! I love pink peppercorn, but it’s been so in vogue lately and in all the same kinds of things. I know there are other ways it can be used in perfumery, I’d love to see more of them.

      1. I feel like there’s so much more that can be done with it. Hopefully, the industry will realize that too!
