Fan di Fendi

Screen grab from Fendi Website

Actually I think a better name would be “Wan di Fendi”

My scent twin posted about this last week coincidentally at the same time I was trying it out.  She was more kindly disposed to it than I am.  I encountered Wan, er Fan as I was walking down Wilshire and saw it in the window at Saks, where it’s an exclusive until September.

Fendi as a fragrance house had some really gorgeous scents like Theorama and Asja, so I guess my expectations were just too high.  The big rectangular bottle is hefty and quite well done.  The stuff in it is drab little fruity floral that minces around for a few hours before exuding a wan leather, like the seats in a Camry, then disappearing altogether.  Much like Gaia, I  daresay you’ll see it at Marshalls by New Years.

In the meantime it’s $70 for 50ML at Saks, where I repeatedly spritzed.  The sacrifices I make..

    I haven’t tried this yet, but loved both Theorema and Palazzo (sorry I ddin’t get a FB of the latter when it came out), I’ll try this when I get a chance but won’t bend over backwards. Thanks for the review.

    Hi, Tom! I tried this at Saks a week or so ago and it was just OK.
    I, too, adored Theorema, as do legions of perfumistas, who would flock to buy it if it were available.
    I thought to myself, “Now why couldn’t they have reincarnated that juice into this lovely bottle?” They’d have a hit on their hands and would have saved face, too. It seems a no-brainer to me, but what do I know?

    You took one for the team, Tom. I never even got to try Palazzo, they yanked that one out of the stores so fast! I treasure my bottle of Theorema, there’s nothing else like it, so gorgeous in winter….

  • Proving once more that no perfume smells the same way on two people. I Tested several scents at Saks last weekend, including that green and white nostril-exfoliant, Maison Martin Margiela. I tried the Fendi and thought “easy for summer.” In the desert, summer does bad, bad things with fragrance, so I like them a bit easier until it gets cooler. the longer it stayed the better it got. I got a good dose of leather, some well-blended florals. It has a huge sillage on me, and a lasting power of 24 hours. And the leather! Like a good motorcycle jacket. Of course, Theorema smells like an old sock on me.
