Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina Misteriosa Eau de Parfum joins the Signorina Fragrance Collection this Spring with a delightfully sophisticated gourmand that will make for a perfect evening fragrance.
The thing about gourmand fragrances is sometimes you’ll come across one that’s tooth achingly sweet. Signorina Misteriosa has that sweetness but it’s a sophisticated, sultry sweetness that’s never cheapened by overly sweet or overly fruity notes.
Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina Misteriosa comes housed in a black lacquer square bottle with gold accents and a little bow that runs the length of the top. It’s slick, chic black packaging matches the gorgeous juice inside.
Signorina Misteriosa does have a base of patchouli which to me can sometimes be overpowering but this fragrance uses the darkness of that note in a truly sensual way, intertwining it with sweetness giving it a warm, sultry note.
On the skin wet, Signorina Misteriosa has an initial syrupy sweetness from blackberries. It reminds me of pouring the filling into a pie dish. No crust, no baked goods here just warm, off the stove, sugary jammy blackberries. It morphs quickly as it sets and you’ll get a little play of tuberose with a smooth, soft neroli note. Within an hour the fragrance becomes something incredibly beautiful. It sets to a very fine, delicious, expensive dessert. The patchouli note becomes more prominent at this point and plays oh so nicely with the blackberry and vanilla mousse note. It’s syrupy, sugary, with a contrasting darkness that gives it a mysterious, sophisticated edge.
I think sophisticated gourmands like this can be taken too seriously at times and they become too dark and almost unwearable for me particularly due the an overuse of patchouli. With Signorina Misteriosa, you never feel overwhelmed or revolted by the patchouli. Patchouli here is merely a warming accent that brings intensity to the fragrance but not one that invades or dominates.
This projects well with three spritzes on my neck and two each on my wrists. It has a super linger for several hours and a nice throw.
If you like sweet yet sophisticated gourmands, Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina Misteriosa is a the perfect pick for you. This is a fragrance that’s perfect for evenings out.
