Very pretty, slightly soapy dry down, but so clean. Bergamot and vanilla over cedar/sandal/musk with a slight powder of iris. It's well-blended, beautifully layered and very very pretty. It really reminds me a lot of Chanel #5 Velvet body creme, but side by side the aldehydes in Chanel make it different. Ferre 20 hasn't got those and it's gentler and easier to wear because of it. Just an incredibly well-blended, refined and lovely feminine scent.

Ferre 20 is one of my all time favorite fragrances. It's sophisticated without being overpowering. Floral with a spicy undertone, dark but not cloying, hints of fruit here and there, and there's even a hint of something like dark chocolate. But only a hint, mind you. Nothing that would put it in the "gourmand" category of scents. It's a nice alto fragrance, if you don't mind me using a musical term. Very versatile, it can be worn in the evenings or during the day. I have found it only in the EDT strength, but in my experience it lasts all day. It's sad that more women haven't discovered this wonderful fragrance. It's truly a work of art. The drydown is terrific, and since this is a very stable fragrance, the opening notes are very redolent of the final drydown. Timeless, not trendy. 5/5

An elegant floral and woody blend of mandarine, blackcurrant, Bulgarian rose, iris, vanilla and cedarwood.
Fragrance Family: Floral, Woody

I also detect just a hint of the opoponax flower at the start, but then it synthesizes out after about an hour. What remains after that initial hour is a beautiful spicy heady scent that to me, rivals Theorema. This is strong vanilla/cedarwood/cinnamon with a great dark citrus kick out of the blackcurrant. The rose is very subtle and sweet - and flattering. This is a refreshing spicy perfume and I was shocked to love it so much. If you like Theorema, Parfum Sacre, Trouble, Opium, etc. you are going to adore this spicy vanilla stunner too.

*Ferre 20* is a floral-spicy-oriental. Very unknown and very special. I don't like Fendi 20 from start to finish. I like its drydown!! Warm, dark, mysterious Bourbon-Vanilla. But the fragrance is not for everyone. Too special!!! There is a similarity to Theorema by Fendi, Tentations by Picasso, Just Me by Montana, and I think it's also similar to BELLE de MINUIT by Nina Ricci (metallic-blue bottle with pink cap). Most of these floral-oriental fragrances are meanwhile discontinued. They are no mainstream-scents - too unique and bold. Not too many women love these outstanding floral-oriental-perfumes.In my opinion Fendi 20 is no sparkling, modern, fresh, and light oriental scent. It's a heavy floral-oriental for self-confident ladies. No fragrance for beginners...
