Salvatore Ferragamo Attimo

Posted on

Meaning ‘instant’ in Italian, Attimo is said to express Salvatore Ferragamo’s core values of elegance, glamour, refined seduction and Italian style.

Created by Jean-Pierre Bethouart and Annick Menardo of Firmenich, the EDP has a multi-faceted floral bouquet with a sensual, woody dry-down.

The floral green woody juice offers an addictive blend of soft musks, refined cedarwood and vibrant patchouli. Opening with juicy and crisp Nashi pear accents, the fragrance offers hints of kumquat. The lotus flower unveils a floral heart. Subtle and fragrantly green, the scent of gardenia and frangipani flowers combine to emphasise floral sensuality. Fresh rosy accents of peony underline femininity and character, according to the Italian house.

SF Attimo has a pretty common fruity & juicy top notes, not so complex flowery middle notes & I couldn’t detect much of the woody dry down; There was a very faint musky note though nothing special. I have to admit, even some of my room candles smell more distinctive & better than this fragrance number !

Nice bottle, ordinary scent, poor lasting power & sillage. I am rather disappointed by Salvatore Ferragamo – Attimo is just like the rest of the 1001 fruity-flowery fragrances launched in the past 6 months; Just another insignificant blend that will need to rely heavily on successful marketing strategies for its existence.

  1. I really wonder why they keep marketing these girlie scents by means of overtly sexual, or at least sexually playful ads… when the lot of them smells anything but sexual. I also wonder when the perfume industry will finally give up its obsession for cleanliness and propriety… I don’t even feel like going to the mall for a sniff anymore.
