Fendi Fan di Fendi Eau de Parfum
Advantages: nice bottle design
Disadvantages: quite heavy
I like to try out different perfumes and have never gotten a Fendi one but this one was launched last year and I was given it at Christmas time as a gift. I was a bit apprehensive as I hadn't tried it before so I wasn't sure what kind of a scent to expect but I was intrigued by the overall look of it as the perfume as it has a very expensive and classic design to it. Fan di Fendi is an eau de parfum, I normally like an eau de toilette as I don't like anything too heavy but it doesn't always mean that.
Fan di Fendi comes in a yellow box which is very bold and different from a lot of the other perfume boxes out there as it is vibrant. The bottle itself follows the classic Fendi logo and keeps a rectangular shape and it is gold so it instantly look expensive and oozes richness. The design has the logo on it and isn't too much but the sophisticated design makes it all seems quite mysterious and it has a glow to the bottle almost which I love.
FAN DI FENDI
When opening this perfume for the first time, I was quite surprised as it is quite a strong scent and I wasn't expecting that. I do tend to buy lighter perfumes so I wasn't sure if this was quite to my taste but it has a really floral scent to it, and it is a lot heavier too. It is quite hard to define exactly what notes this fragrance is made up of but the flowery notes seem to take over the others. It is definitely quite mature in scent and I'd say maybe for an older woman.
The fragrance is of course made up of a number of notes and looking them up I got more of an idea of what has created this smell. The base notes on this are patchouli and leather accord which does seem quite unusual. The heart notes are damascena rose and yellow jasmine accord which explains the floral notes that I strongly picked up on and lastly the top notes are pear-blackcurrant accord, tangerine and pink peppercorn. These are all such unique notes but they work.
After seeing what notes the fragrance is made up of, I am shocked that I don't really pick up on the fruity notes as pear and blackcurrant would normally be quite strong. As mentioned above, I do feel this is quite a heavy perfume and maybe older women would like it, however I don't like to generalise as some younger women like a heavier perfume. I found that one spray was enough for me and it lasted me all day after spraying this, no need to reapply.
The perfume is one that would be best for an evening occasion as for daytime I think that this would be just a bit too much. It is good that this lasts a while when it is on as you don't have to use as much of the perfume. I do like this scent but keep it more for nt time affairs rather than for work etc. It is nice but at times it doesn't fit my mood so I use it less than other fragrances. It is an acquired taste this scent but you really have to sample it before making the purchase.
You can purchase this fragrance in all department stores. I am basing my prices on The Perfume Shop who are selling this for £39.50 for the 30ml EDP, £56.50 for the 50ml and the 75ml is £68.50, it isn't the cheapest but being Fendi this is about normal for high end designer fragrances.
