I had no idea this fragrance was discontinued. Both my best friend and I wore it regularly way back in the 90's or early "zero-ies". I still have an unopened spray bottle as well as one "on the go" (but a sealed spray, kept in my dark fragrance cupboard so it hasn't gone off). I tend to wear this in cooler months and love it. I'm saddened to learn that it has been discontinued as it is one of the scents that I really love. It has a warm, somewhat sultry chypre scent and everyone I know comments when I wear this. My husband loves this fragrance on me because it's not too sweet smelling and he doesn't like fragrances that are over-the-top sweet and Fendi definitely does not fall into that category.

I was at the state fair this past fall and there was a booth of thousands of fragrances of all kinds. And then I spotted it! A slightly worn box of the original Fendi! The wonderful vendor let me have it for $85.00 for the 3.4 size. It's the EDT and I have been in love ever since! This is definitely not a fragrance for younger women. At 57 yrs. old, Fendi is just the perfect fragrance for me. I'm beginning to lose my olfactory ability and today's new fragrances are hard for me to smell. Not Fendi! I put a small dab on each wrist and I am set for the day. I can't quit smelling my wrists as I go thru the day! It's truly a lovely fragrance and in my opinion one ofthe classiest scents available. I will never be without my Fendi! I don't care how much I have to pay, how hard it is to find, I simply must have it! I highly recommend this as a gift for the more mature women for you girls trying to find something for your mother or grandmother. Not saying it smells like an old lady-it's just not a fragrance that can easily be pulled off by younger women. I truly treasure my bottle. It will probably outlast me as a little goes a long way. I love, love, love it. I could go on about the notes, etc .but those details aren't what are important to me. What is is how well a fragrance defines my sense of style and personality. It is for a confident, strong, and mature woman. Nuff said!

EDP and EDT are very different. EDT is fresh citrusy-flowery comlicated scent with that crushed pettals undertone.
EDP is heavier and more flirty, closer to the skin... for the evening wear. Muskier and sweeter.
Both are nice, non abrasive smells. (it's rarer than one can imagine)
My mom liked both but purchased EDT, wich reacted beautifully with her skin and was freashier and lovelier on her, and stronger than EDP.
So try it if you get a chance. But I'd say it's not for me. Too rich and subtle, too distinctive, too something... I can't imagine it on me.
UPD: tried it on myself and it didn't work with my chemistry. (before I smelled it on another person.) Also it's a rather popular fragnance... Could it be recognisable. Still a nice one.

Top notes very fresh green perfume dries down to oriental reminds me of coco chanel with kind of a pleasant soap smell I love it

Actually, I have never owned this scent. My best friend wore it to work and when she walked past me, I would get an instant stomach churning headache. I told her right out that if she had to wear it, to stay WAY away from me. I am thrilled that it is discontinued so I never have occasion to smell it again!

Well this is a chypre and I love chypres. But I was a little worried that I would fall for this one because it has been discontinued. I needn't have worried - it is very sweet on me, and I just cannot get on with cedar. Apart from that, it is a well put together woodsy chypre with a mandarin topnote and a pretty vanilla tonka drydown. great staying power unlike Fendi's other discontinued marvel Theorema. I think it reminds me a bit of Coco which is also very sweet on my skin. It is getting very hard to get a hold of, I got a mini from Amazon. I am glad I only got a mini. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate it. I just do not like the cedar note or the cloying sweetness. I am giving it four lippies because I don't think the scent can be blamed for my anti-cedar prejudice.

My heart will forever be broken that this scent is discontinued... I search for a replacement scent, but to no avail. After wearing Fendi for years there is nothing to fill the void in today's modern fragrances I have found a couple of new fragrances which are nice, but nothing wears as well as Fendi. And men love it on me!!!! The fragrance search continues......

My aunt wore this when I was a kid and for some reason I was always attracted to this scent. I wear this often and love it. It is a different scent than the ones out today. I can describe it but all I can say is yummy.

Fendi was my scent. I loved it and was just sick when I found out they had stopped making it. It is such an original smell, woody & spicy. I haven't found anything close to it but would love to know what you other Fendi lovers are wearing now.

I fell in love with Fendi in the 80's and I wore it almost everyday (I used to switch off with Chanel #5 once in a while) until about 2002 or so. I took a break, and wanted to have something new.
This is an intense warm woody fragrance. It does have a retro feel to it in a certain sense but I'm okay with that.
I wore this fragrance for so long that my oldest children and my Husband always associate the scent with me, no matter where they smell it.
On me it dries down and warms up to be a very smokey woody deep fragrance. A little goes a long way. I adore this fragrance but would suggest that anyone wanting to give it a try to definately try a tester first.

I got a gift set of this about 2 years ago and have finally finished it off. It's definitely a winter scent and like most people on the boards it reminds me of the 90s! With that it seems a little dated but in a good way. It has a woody floral & has a heavy warm powdery base to it much like how CK's "Obsession" does. For me it's not a everyday scent but it's nice to revist this scent every once in a while. With it being a classic & out for so long the price it really affordable now. On me this scent (EDT spray) lasts just about all day on me and the shower gel lasts a only a hour or two on my skin.

Fendi. I discovered you when I knew nothing of fragrance and instantly fell head over heels (well, combat boots at the time....it was the 90s!).
In richer or poorer times, you've always been there for me, especially when I discovered that Rite Aid usually sells you for around $30 (sometimes half of that).
You're always my go-to, my friend that lifts me out of the dumps and makes me feel like a million dollar goddess. All warm & glowy. Sexy & powerful. Comforting & safe. Luxurious & indulgent.
You're not for everyone, I know. You can be really outspoken and annoying when you're used inappropriately (who can't?).
But I love you and your woodsy, amber, spicy lushness. You make me feel like I'm the only one in the world for you and you lavish me with all of your passionate, honeyed ambrosia.
You are like sophistication and boldness wrapped in a slightly sweet leather glove.
Your faithful worshipper.

I have experienced a lot of fragrances and I tend to lean towards the 1980's fragrances but this is by far the worst I have ever experienced, I took one whiff and returned it to the store, it smelled offensive, vulgar, almost like bathroom perfume, it was an authentic product but smelled like 'a scent inspired by...', in my opinion this fragrance lacks sophistication and class. This scent seems so second rate.

Fragrance is more or less a personal choice. Someone's elixir might be other's poison. For me, Fendi is an elixir.
Fendi is a feminine and assured chypre floral that is very feminine and attractive. I used to wore it everyday in windy days to keep msyself in a warm & classy aroma.
Fendi is a fresh alternative to some heavier florals that were common in the 1980's with its top notes of Lemon, Coriander, Cardamon, Mandarin blended of a subtle but strong bed of Geranium, Laurel leaves, Cypress, Lily of the valley and a rich base of Cedar, Moss, Labdanum and Tonka.

On me, Fendi starts out good but ends up smelling like very old expensive soap and very old expensive spices that have been sitting in a cupboard together for years. Not bad if one is in the mood for that kind of thing, I suppose. I don't get in the mood for this type of thing very often. I like the oldschool heavy hitters, but this particular one doesn't quite suit me as well as Opium or Youth Dew. This one reminds me a lot of Femme de Rochas, actually. Same type of vibe, very Grande Dame. No sale for me.

Created back in 1985, at the time (i was a teen) it was all he rage.
In the Eighties, those bold, strong, deep and screaming-out-loud frags were the rule and the fashion.
So we were all wearing that stuff (remember Poison...etc? well that's what I mean).
Minimalism came way later :o)
I was given as a bottle of Fendi a present some years later - felt so flattered as it meant i was "grown up" girl and not a teen.
It is a BOLD fragrance, and draws instant attention.
It's a chypre with a spicy/oriental vocation.
The flowers in it play a smaller role... the drydown is of classic oriental, wiht resins, moss, tonka.
Feminine, dry, spicy, sensual. For a lady with personality!
Incredible staying power, apply with caution as it's easy to overdo.
I myself do not wear this anymore and I find it "too much" and somehow "dated" but i like to smell it from time to time.
A great frag that you need to smell to have a taste of the Eighties!
Notes as per Osmoz:
top notes Lemon, Coriander, Cardamon, Mandarin
heart note Geranium, Laurel leaves, Cypress, Lily of the valley
base note Cedar, Moss, Labdanum, Tonka

i always liked this one. i worked in the cosmetics/fragrance area in bloomingdales in manhattan just out of my teens. this was one of the 'it' scents of the day. they had a massive bottle as a display which actually worked. so people went by all day and spritzed themselves. the air around us reeked of it, and yet i would still put some on myself sometimes. but like so many scents i dont wear now, this brings me back to a too specific time and place. i like it on others. it's not a fainthearted scent, but to me classic, lady like, rich.

I used to be able to find Fendi EDP at Walgreens for dirt cheap. But for some reason, I haven't been able to find it for awhile. Good down to earth scent, but it reminds me too much of a friend of mine. The spicy nature of this scent is heaven on a heavy wool sweater. You could curl into it and feel warm.
