Inside The Box: Salvatore Ferragamo Storie di Seta
Storie De Seta eau de parfum, 1.5mL
Pleasant and inoffensive like the environments they’re named after and softly gentle but striking like the signature scarves that inspired them, these perfumes in this collection of Salvatore Ferragamo may just be the brand’s most impressive in years.
Salvatore Ferragamo’s Storie De Seta features 4 genderless fragrances bound together by the silk thread, the line’s olfactory signature. Each scent is beautiful yet all distinct from each other. Where we would usually gravitate to just one in a collection, this had us captivated by all 4—also all layerable to create a personal and distinct fragrance.
Savane Di Seta is a sensual citrus floral, inspired by “a fiery sunset on a mysterious savannah.” with an interesting top note of carrot seeds. It’s more feminine in the unisex spectrum and smells brighter and lighter than but as good as it reads on paper: “An impromptu and surprising Carrot Accord leads to the powdery notes of the Orris floral heart, softened by the creamy, milky undertones of Indian Sandalwood.” Giungle di Seta is one of the most beautiful floral green scents we’ve ever smelled, instantly pleasant with the crispness of green pea contrasted by velvety peony blossoms and musk. Ocean di Seta is a unique floral aqueous fragrance that’s nothing like the aquatic perfumes you remember from the decades. This is a gorgeous masterpiece with a salty accord at the top, a heart of magnolia, and a heliotrope drydown. Giardini di Seta is sweet, crunchy, juicy, opening with rhubarb followed by a red and pink heart of Sakura flower. It dries down with warmth, thanks to woody notes of vetiver.
To say that the Ferragamo’s Storie De Seta bottles make a pretty addition to your vanity is an understatement. They’re works of art with an embellishing motif in ceramic inspired by the brand’s silk masterpieces.
