Salvatore Ferragamo Incanto Charms
If there’s love at first whiff, this perfume is the first thing that comes to mind. It makes this interesting fresh symphony that makes me feel like I’m in heaven, paradise, Garden of Eden…
This was given to me by my ate during her last trip here in the Philippines and it was an instant favorite.
Incanto Charms limited edition is a floral-fruity fantasy, sweet and colorful. It opens with passionfruit and honeysuckle. At its heart, a perfect union of Turkish rose and jasmine. Woody-musky trail is light and comfortable. It was created by Beatrice Piquet in 2006.
Top: Honeysuckle, Passionfruit
Middle: Rose, Jasmine
Base: Woodsy, Musk
This perfume makes me happy! It smells like fresh flowers and juicy fruits which are grounded by spices and warmed by Jasmine and Musk. It starts off bright and juicy and dries down to be sweet. It is a simple, free-spirited yet uncomplicated whiff of floral and fruity scents.
It is a nice light everyday floral-fruity scent. The sweetness is not too heavy or cloying at all. I love how light, refreshing and summer-y it smelled on me. Some people say it is too sweet for them but for me it is just right.
The staying power is so so but I can still smell it after 3 hours on me. Though the scent is still on my clothes after 8 hours, people around me won’t notice it unless they are basically hugging me.
It is pleasant, light, and inoffensive perfect for work or even school. It actually brings out a happy feeling from the people around me (or is it just me? :P) the scent is fun yet there is a sexiness about the fruity floral vibe. The delicious whiffs of it and the lingering smell it gives off is makes me feel nice.
Though I won’t recommend it at night as it isn’t quite elegant enough.
Mine was given as a gift but I think 100ml costs around P4998 at local department stores.
Where To Buy
Rustans, SM Department Stores, Landmark.
I just wanna warn you guys to avoid buying in stores that sell it at a much lower price. One time I passed this store in a mall in Cubao selling a wide range of fragrances at low, low prices. I asked them why the products are that cheap, they explained that these didn’t pass the quality control because the box of the perfume is crumpled and I was like okaaaaay….woah. O.o I think that’s a bulls*it reason…I read other experiences that the perfumes sold at 50% off contains water, alcohol and the topmost part with tiniest amount contains the REAL perfume. So, you are basically paying for some expensive water. The smell was the same as mine but I had a feeling there is something wrong with it still. Too bad I didn’t bring my perfume to compare it. This stuff they are selling could be the ones sold in online stores saying “Singapore Authentic”. I suggest you buy from reputable department stores.
What I Like About Salvatore Ferragamo Incanto Charms
- The scent is clean, simple and perfect for my age
- The bottle is pretty and reminds me of fairies
What I Don’t Like About Salvatore Ferragamo Incanto Charms
- Doesn’t last that long
- The cap doesn’t fit the bottle anymore. I lost it a few times now but luckily I still found it.
- This is more for the day time rather than the evening.
- When spraying on, do not rub, let the scent develop. Rubbing it may sometimes cause it to become citrusy, while letting it develop makes it smell better.
Will I Repurchase?
I’d highly suggest this for young women, and it would be very good in spring-summer, day time, and for those who have a sweet tooth. :) If you are on a budget, Victoria’s Secret Secret Charm smells like this one too!
