    I just recieved a catalogue from Speed Gear. They sell a line of Ferrari
    colognes and after shave. Have any of you ever used these products?

    Red wasn't very good, but I got a bottle of Black for my b-day. Little spicy with a deep metallic topnote.

    I have used the Ferrari black, it's one of my favorites. I'm trying the Racing. I gave it to myself for my B-day. It doesn't give me that new car smell I expected though.

    I personally like the Red very much, not the Black though. Just tried the Racing and its pretty good. They also have one called 456, its very good, but more of an evening scent, red you can use anytime. The 456 I tried at the Exoticar Model Comp. in NYC. on park ave.

    Imagine if that scent got into the leather and then decayed for a few months...not an appealing thought!

    I have bought all 4. Gold and F1 are worth keeping, the other two (red and black) are pretty worthless. Either way, none is a great cologne, but I had to buy em just to have. :D

    I have all of them. Yellow (or Gold) isn't my favourite. I do like Black and Red...and love '1'.

    And for the ladies...there is 'Ferrari Donna', hard to find, but very very nice. (the sell it in Maranello...try 'Warm-Up'...they don't have it at there website, but when you mail them...you can still order!)

    I made a post about Donna on my website, incl. pics. (just search for the word Donna!) :)

    Actually there used to be a lot more Cologne lines from Ferrari. They made one just for the Testarossa and one for the 456. There was even some kind of a shampoon for women. I bought all those over the years, they have become some collector's items by now.

    From the ones currently being sold the best one IMHO isn't even for sale in the US: It is called "Racing" (different than the "F1") and is really stunning. I got one of those this year in Maranello in one of the gift shops.

    Once I use up the parfums I normally refill the bottles with water and use them as 'backdrops' for my 1/18 car collection.
