Latest Reviews of Tuscan Creations : Bianco di Carrara Parfum
Bianco di Carrara "sparklingly" shines as part of the new Ferragamo's Tuscan Creations Collection. This review is on the Eau de parfum, the scent was launched in 2019 and was performed by perfumer Alexandra Carlin. Ferragamo (a renowned italian fashion brand - with a large legacy mostly but not exclusively in the shoes production - which in March 2013 - by Salvatore Ferragamo S.p.A. - established its Ferragamo Foundation in Florence) is prevalently known in perfumery due its iconic fig-dominant woodsy creation Ferragamo Pour Homme (Jean-Pierre Mary, 1999). I have to say that Bianco di Carrara is the Pour Homme's firstborn and a fragrance (easier in structure if compared with the great Pour Homme) which reintroduces that musky-powdery white-green main accord which has been the PH's solid structure and quality. Marmo di Carrara is a floral/woody/powdery creation with a soft suedish trail and a dusty heliotropic brightness (ideally reproducing the Marmo di Carrara's ductility under the chisel 's beat "). It preserves a sort of lemony-floral opaque (well calibrated) undertone throughout across the dominant (and stable) white powder (ambery/heliotropic/woody/tonkinian). White/black pepper and heliotrope afford a sort of spacious molecular brightness cleverly expressing the central olfactory Rinascimental concept (white, precious, ductile italian marble). Juniper berries imprint a cool aromatic "coniferous" vibe. The chosen florals (violet leaves and iris) are the best solution in order to color and "embellish" the woodsy/amberish powder by leafy-floral elements (in here perfectly merged with powder - cashmere wood and a touch of oudh). The ambrette seeds-presence provides the elements with a warm and sensual embrace perfectly joined with a certain woody/spicy powdery dry freshness. A touch of soft leather (reminiscence of the notorious Ferragamo shoes-leather) complete the balance with a whiff of class. Marmo di Carrara really smells quite close to the original and muskier Ferragamo Pour Homme (which is spicier, more aromatic, more properly virile and more focused on woods - powdery vetiver in particular - while Marmo di Carrara replaces the PH's landmark fig leaves-note with heliotrope, smelling finally more amberish-tonkinian and slightly less floral and "airy"). Perfectly unisex this is a versatile fragrance with a quite good durability and an average sillage.
