Perfume Review: Salvatore Ferragamo Attimo

(This review is part of the "30 Perfumes in 30 Days" series)

Another blind-buy.... Test-notes:

Fresh lemony burst, then pear sorbet - yum!  Then, after 5 minutes, it is just another fruity floral.  I would have loved it if it were a little more like Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune, where that "soli-fruit" (lol) note stays on and on (and realistically too!).  Unfortunately, this one turns into another fruity floral with that cheap fruit-aldehyde note I seem to sense in every mainstream (not entirely well-crafted) department store frag.  It dries down to a yummy brown sugar, just like Acqua di Gioia, but lasts a little longer.  Gasp! Will this be my fruity floral keeper?  Only if it lasts longer than 2-3 hours.

Verdict: After the short yumminess, it dries down even further to a skin scent that smells of plastic.  I like some sillage, and would have preferred it if that pear stayed.  Bye-bye!
