I had been eying Signorina for quite some time. Yesterday, I finally went to Nordstrom to make my purchase. I actually sprayed some on my arm to make sure I wasn’t buying the scent because of my love for all things Ferragamo.
Everything smelled okay. I make the purchase. I get home. I lie down on my bed. I get a whiff of my arm. [Explicative]
I hate it.
This is SO annoying because I have been to Nordstrom several times to smell the fragrance. I had the poor sales associate pulling similar fragrances to make sure I really liked Signorina. I mean, I was in there for about an hour. I really hate to return it (mainly because he’s on commission).
Mind you, the same thing happened with Coco Mademoiselle. I loved it in the store, then returned it nearly a month later when I realized I never wore it.
Damn you Keira Knightly!
You’re probably wondering, “what the hell DO you like, then?”
I love my Prada Candy, but I’m so in love with the scent that I don’t want to burn out on it.
Prada Candy has notes of white musk, benzoin, caramel, citrus, and oriental notes.
Signorina has notes of pepper, black currant buds, jasmine, peony, rose, patchouli, musk, and pannacotta accord.
I don’t think I like currant or patchouli, so maybe that’s what kills Signorina for me.
What type of fragrances do you gravitate towards?
