Fan di FENDI

Fan di FENDI is the fragrance that is the re-launch of Fendi  in the world of fragrance. In years past they have made some famous ones, including  the hard to find Theorema which is one I have heard many perfumista friends talk about in revered tones.

Created by Francois Demachy, Fan di FENDI  is a rich ,deep and warm floriental .  The opening notes are listed as fruits mainly, but aside from a bit of blackcurrant and the pink peppercorn  on me it heads right into the floral territory with the Damascus rose and jasmine . As it dries down the leather note gives it that richness and a cozy-ness. It's like wearing a black cashmere sweater under a leather jacket . The leather isn't too prominent but there enough to make this more than simply a floral. Patchouli rounds out the bottom notes and  gives enough woods to pull the flowers and leather together. It's a very elegant perfume , one that has the feel of luxury and is strong, and a bit sharp,  but not overdone.

I  also have to  mention the bottle here as well , since it's quite beautiful. Based on the famous Fendi baguette  bag's buckle , it's gold , bold and makes a statement.

Note list:
-Top Notes: Pear blackcurrant accord, tangerine from Calabria and pink peppercorn from Reunion Island
-Heart Notes: Damascena rose and yellow jasmine
-Base Notes: Soft leather accord and patchouli from Indonesia

Fan di FENDI is available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue  in  August and in September it will be available in specialty and department stores.
$ 76.00 for 1.7 oz
