If you’re looking for a new way to experience fragrance, you’ve officially found it. Salvatore Ferragamo Giardini di Seta is a unisex Eau de Parfum with a fresh, sweet fruity-floral tone. But it gets better; the perfume is part of the Storie di Seta collection, which encourages you to blend and layer each fragrance to create a unique and adventurous scent.
This Fragrance Smells Like…
The Italian-made perfume is created by Emilie Coppermann and Aliénor Massenet. It opens with crunchy and juicy red rhubarb for an instantly fresh, sweet feel before it dives into a heart of transparent bright florals like sakura flower, a fantasy floral note inspired by cherry blossom, which mingles with an exclusive Filo di Seta accord. This accord runs throughout the entire Storie di Seta collection to tie the perfumes together. Sustainable Lilybelle®, Fair Trade Timut pepper, which has a woody, floral, pink grapefruit and yuzu feel, and Neo Soie Velours de Laine evoke the sensation of silk. Finally, the vibrant, luminous and yet still elegant Eau de Parfum settles into a dry, earthy base of Madagascan vetiver.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
As a part of the Storie Di Seta collection, Giardini is inspired by the unique lands celebrated in Ferragamo’s iconic silk creations, which you’ll notice in the stunning bottles and the wider olfactory experience. Just as you’d layer an outfit, you’re encouraged to layer and blend this universal fragrance line – depending on the effect you’re hoping to make, you can wear one alone, or layer two, three or even all four.
I love how this collection celebrates silk; each flacon in the collection has exotic motifs and vivid colours that celebrate the distinctive style of this fabric, a trademark for Ferragamo. Inspired by the most precious and airy silk fluttering in the breeze, Ferragamo’s 2021 collection feels as pleasant and comfortable as a silk embrace.
Made using the finest rare and sustainable raw materials, the fragrance formulation fits with the inspiration of Giardini di Seta Eau de Parfum. Inspired by a silk design exploring hidden gardens bursting with velvety petals and exquisite florals, the perfume honours the natural world through both the bottle and the ingredients.
You Will Love This If…
If you’re a fan of Salvatore Ferragamo, then this is a must-have. You’ll love the opportunity to be able to mix and match the fragrances within the Storie collection to find and perfect your signature scent; it’ll still be very Ferragamo, but also very you.

If you’re a fan of Eau de Rhubarbe Ecarlate by Hermes, you’ll want to try Giardini di Seta; it shares a similarly sweet, fresh and crunchy rhubarb tone but transforms with the Ferragamo-exclusive facet.
Is Giardini di Seta Unisex?
At Escentual, fragrance has no gender; the only thing that matters is that you enjoy wearing it. The Salvatore Ferragamo Storie di Seta collection mirrors this, too; each perfume, including this one, is designed for all genders to love and wear.
What’s The Longevity Like?
As an Eau de Parfum, this was naturally long-lasting as you’d expect. It lasted well over six hours for me. To intensify and prolong the fragrance, you can build it up with another scent from the range.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
Everything about Giardini di Seta is gorgeous – scent and bottle included! Held in a weighted, double-walled glass flacon, it allows you to see the ever-so-subtle pink liquid within. The Eau de Parfum is adorned with blossoming florals and curled leaves showcased in a rainbow of pretty pinks, exotic oranges and luscious greens and blues. It perfectly captures the hidden garden theme.
Giardini di Seta is centred around an exclusive Filo di Seta exclusive accord, made from 62.2% renewable and 99.1% biodegradable ingredients. This accord is perfected using the likes of Lilybelle® – a note created from orange peel using a sustainable extraction process – while Timut pepper is sourced from Fair Trade farms.
