FOR HIM: Ferrari Man in Red
FRAGRANCE FAMILY: FOUGÈRE
Top notes: bergamot, cardamom
Heart notes: golden plum, orange blossom, lavender
Base notes: tonka bean, cedar, labdanum
We MAY associate the ‘Ferrari man’ with those sensual, thrill-seeking and charismatic types who thrive on lives filled with a seemingly constant rush of adrenaline – but Ferrari assure us that ‘…he is also a man of contrasts, underneath his athletic exterior lies a heart of gold.’ Certainly, with Ferrari Man in Red described as being inspired by a man who ‘lives his life intensely’, we’re intensely intrigued to get closer and smell more…
Whatever lies beneath, we’re certainly loving what wafts from atop – with a refreshing fruity opening spiced with shades of cardamom, and a heart of golden plum entwined with orange blossom and soothed by lavender. Comfortable and warm, the final trail had us hooked with almond-like toasty tonka beans melding into a base of cedar wood and gloriously rich labdanum.
An iconic brand – do Ferraris come in any other colour than red? – for sure that’s the colour we immediately think of when smelling this, cleverly evoked here with the essence of luscious luxury and dynamic speed juxtaposed against those contrasts of tender notes to snuggle up with.
