Reviews of Bright Neroli by Ferrari

There are 15 reviews of Bright Neroli by Ferrari.

Bright Ferrari's balance of notes is appealing, but it's ultimately too blunt and unsophisticated in its construction to deserve too much acclaim. The "eau de cologne" style is typically about delicate nuance, but Ferrari Bright Neroli's modern take on the genre simplifies the structure and then lays it on thick. It isn't artful, but the effect is that it lasts considerably longer than many other releases in this style (though it's worth mentioning that even the heavily applied neroli does fade away at a certain point, giving the spotlight over to a "white floral" heart, which is more prominent here than in other notable neroli fragrances, like 4711 or Neroli Portofino).

Those looking for performance above all else may find much to admire about how this "freshie" wears. If you're not scrutinizing the scent composition and simply enjoy the pleasant wafts in the air, it does successfully evoke its "eau de cologne" origins. Accordingly, it will generally be perceived by those around the wearer as elegant and refreshing.

As such, it's hard to quibble with Bright Neroli's status as a "good value for the money" acquisition. I think other cheapies in this style smell better (among them, the classic 4711 and the sleek, minimalist Banana Republic Neroli Woods), but they don't have the same degree of presence.

Ok, so this is nothing like TFNeroli Portofino - not even close. The neroli isn't nearly as intense or rich, and it lacks the same depth and complexity.

But now that's out of the way, if you're after a light citrus freshly floral for the summer, that you can wear every day without breaking the bank then this is pretty perfect. It's not as soapy as penhaligons Castile. It's exactly was it says - clean, bright and fresh.

Judge it on its own merits, not on hype train comparisons to other things in different leagues.

Delightful mix of citrusy notes, especially all kind of orange smells. Although refreshing, It's also refining and could be worn at night, even in formal occasions. Slightly sweet (but nothing that could ruin the freshness) and not cheap-smelling at all. Truly shareable, longevity is pretty decent. Nice work from Ferrari!

A really enjoyable citrus and neroli fragrance that smells natural and organic in the dry down after the 'bright' uplifting citrus has faded, all the ingredients in this feel natural and not laboratory created. Simular to penhaligons castille or neroli portofino but for much less money. A real summer go to fragrance and the performance is very impressive with 5 hours of projection and silage. The bottle feels heavy and the cap is solid metal, overall one of the best bargains I've come across in fragrance. Tip* , don't use this after being in a swimming pool..the chlorine combined with neroli really smells bad gone off flowers.

This starts off with a strong note of neroli and bitter orange, with a hint of citron. The whole composition smells a lot like Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino or its ancestor 4711 Eau de Cologne, but Ferrari Bright Neroli is far more 'orange' in character, with less lemon and no bergamot or lime. The whole fragrance smells very natural and is a soapy orange scent; the light orange juice colour is very appropriate. On drydown over time it smells still mainly of neroli, but I get hints of vetiver as well. This fragrance is totally unisex and doesn't lean masculine or feminine (as is the case usually with neroli-based fragrances). It smells sort of like an orange version of Mugler Cologne (which is also neroli dominant and totally unisex but is 'green' in character). Sillage is moderate leaning strong while longevity is also moderate leaning strong, at over 5 hours. Overall this smells extremely pleasant, and is a fantastic ultra-orange natural smelling neroli cologne with far more longevity and projection than 4711 Eau de Cologne but priced way less than Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino (while smelling like both). Neroli, and citrus fruits are probably my favourite aromas in perfumery, and this is one of my favourite neroli-based fragrances.


I got two colognes from Fragrance Split today. One was GIT,and it was spot on,and the other was this one, Bright Neroli.
Let me first say that what I got from Fragrance Split was good, and the service was also solid.
That said ,when I sprayed Bright Neroli on it was OK. The name is what it is.I thought to myself, wow, I should get a bottle of this,especially what Bright Neroli is selling for. Then it started to change .All this began about 10 minutes in.About 15 minutes past and I said,no,I'll pass on this one,for it's getting into the overly synthetic side of colognes.20 minutes and I was getting pissed.My thought was this stuff is starting to stink.One hour latter and I was trying to wash it off.
I just took a smell from the twist up sprayer that Fragrance Split gives you,which is nice,and if only Bright Neroli stayed that way I would be happy. Sadly though,it doesn't. You get what you pay for.
Myself I would rather pay up for Acqua Di Parma's Colonia or Annick's Neroli . Both are nice. Then there's Le Gallion's Cologne too.
Sad to say it, but I am afraid to even give Bright Neroli away.I will though.It might work for someone else,just not me.
I would like to add that I generally shy away from reviews,but I thought that I should regarding Bright Neroli .

This is a pleasant synthetic neroli with lemon. Quite light and fizzy.
Quite generic though and this is a theme running through the recent Ferrari releases.
In isolation a certain thumbs up. And it lasts.
However, Hermes tres fraiche , Cartier Declaration Eau (and bleu bois) are both more accomplished and classier and the same price. Creed's Neroli Sauvage is the ultimate but is overpriced and has unforgivable longevity issues.

Fragrance: 3.25/5
Projection: 3.75/5
Longevity: 4/5

Versatile great stuff! Not the best citrus scent I have but definitely the one I'll grab in a hurry.

A very good clone of Neroli Portofino. The price is a major plus. Very zesty and fresh. An Ambroxide gem. 8/10

What's not to like? This is my favorite neroli scent for sure, as usually I'm not much of a fan of the bitter, white citrus flower. However, Ferrari's seems to be paired with a wonderfully fruity citrus component and what results is a bright, cheerful neroli fragrance with a bit of a watery texture, and a light, sparkling crystal quality. While I find it a relatively simple scent, and very linear, it's the kind of smell that's hard to dislike. My only complaint about Bright Neroli is that its projection is on the weaker side. While I still catch nice wafts of it from time to time, it could be stronger. While available, this goes for about $40 online, which is definitely worth it, in my opinion. If you're looking for something fresh with a different twist to your standard lemons and aquatic blues, this is a great option. Thumbs up. 8/10

This is some seriously nice juice. Never been impressed with Ferrari in the past. This is their best offering by far. Similar neroli take as TF Neroli Portofino but with an added citrus blast. Lasts a hell of a lot longer than TF. If you like neroli you cant go wrong especially for the price. Can be easily worn by both Men & Women.

Ferrari Bright Neroli, the first of the house that I've sampled, is a nice entry and welcome addition to the pantheon of neroli-dominant fragrances that is seemingly led, in popular opinion, by Tom Ford Neroli Portofino.

It has, as expected, a healthy dose of citrus---very mixed, with citron, lemon, and orange---and a whole lot of neroli and orange flower keeping it bright into the dry down. The bed of rosemary, pepper, and vetiver in which Bright Neroli lands is a soft spot, as the scent doesn't dramatically change when it dries down.

Bright Neroli isn't quite as complete as Neroli Portofino, let alone Neroli Portofino Forte, but's darn good for the price, at $41 for 100ml EDP, with performance that is comparable to NP.

8 out of 10

A mix of TdH, 4711 and Allure Edition Blanche. Bright, sharp and citrusy. Very pleasing and sweeter than what I imagined it to be, but that's not saying this is a sweet scent.

Projection is okay. Just enough to smell it when you want to.

The scent of italian beaches in a bottle. Reminiscent of the sea breeze. Excellent unisex and a good alternative to Tom Ford neroli portofino. Bright Neroli is incredibly refreshing and inoffensive. It definitely doesnet smell generic. Aromatic, youthful, casual, summery, safe, light hearted, chic and easy to wear.

The fragrance opens up like a fine and elegant citrus cologne with bitter orange, lemon and coupled with aromatic and rich pepper and aromatic rosemary with hints of solid vetiver. Add neroli with it is clean, floral note that makes a subtle partner to soften the citrus note. This lovely mixture embodies happiness a refreshing splash of scent after a hot shower. Expensive but it worth the price.

Sweet citrus fragrance. Comparable in smell with Neroli Portofino. Not as sweet or complex as Chanel Edition Blanche though.

I heard this isn't offered in USA, and Europe seems to sell it for $80+ I got mine for $55 (US Dollars) so I have to give it 5 stars. Cheaper than Mugler Cologne, and better!
