Do you remember my review of the Elie Saab L’Eau CouturePerfume last week? Well, what I failed to mention was the series of events that led to finding myself at Elys in Wimbledon. Elys is one of the best department stores I have been to because it has all the lovely brands all housed in a 4-floor building in the heart of Wimbledon. The exciting thing is they are always so generous with their samples as well because they send emails if you have their free beauty card and are subscribed to their newsletter. So, I received an email saying I could get a deluxe sample of the Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina Eleganza, I was thrilled. Straight after work, I found myself there and I was a bit taken aback on how pretty the sample was and they definitely were not joking when they said it was a deluxe sample as it holds 5 ml of this lovely scent. I did not use it for a long time because it was so pretty but I decided to pop it into my makeup bag as a touch up perfume and it’s truly the perfect size and smells amazing!!
I would try not to drool but I am really tempted to buy the full size because it is ever so pretty but that would be a waste of resources which are not particularly abundant in the current climate (hahaha, I can’t believe I used a work jargon on my blog, damn!!). First off, I am a huge fan of the colours. The soft Gold and Nude Beige colours of the packaging are so appealing to me and the little pinkish-beige bow at the top is just the perfect finish to an already pretty packaging.
The first notes that hits you is the fresh scent of the Grapefruit and Pear which paves the way to the sensual scent of Almond Powder and Golden Osmanthus Petals before it settles to Patchouli and White Leather which is a mixture that stays with you for a long time. I really like the combination of scents and I think it sits within the fruity/floral and musk category which I think I prefer with fragrances.
Who is this for?
This fragrance can be worn by anyone from their twenties onward because it is so feminine yet sophisticated. Just like the name implies, it is a really elegant fragrance and I really like to wear it when I am going out because it just feels like the sort of fragrance you want to wear to an occasion.
It comes in different sizes 30ml, 50 ml and 100ml and the starting price ranges from £42, £60 and £81 respectively so it’s an expensive perfume but I think it’s worth it because it is long lasting (it’s an Eau De Parfum), good quality and the packaging is exquisite. I am so pleased I got to try this sample and I would be popping this on my wish list. Have you tried anything from Salvatore Ferragamo?
