Gieffeffe by Gianfranco Ferre, Gieffeffe is an uncommonly complex citrus aromatic fragrance.
Classified as a unisex scent, the opening is citrusy, fruity and gently spiced with top notes of mandarin orange, orange, coriander, bergamot, peach, lemon and osmanthus. The heart is floral with notes of freesia, rose and jasmine. The fresh flowers are joined with additional middle notes of nutmeg, orris root, and cardamom. The scent sits comfortably on a woody, faintly sensuous base of musk, sandalwood, patchouli, warming amber and cedar. The impressive number of notes do not confuse or overwhelm, but mingle masterfully with a resulting fragrance that is remarkably illusive.
Launched by Gianfranco Ferre in 1995, this intelligent scent is a creation of perfumer Michele Saramito. This is great selection for daily wear with moderate longevity and sillage. The fragrance’s light freshness is appropriate for a day at the office and will linger and delightfully refresh through the early evening hours.
