    Being in the mood for some new Ferrari toy, I noticed that Ferrari blesses a cologne with its name, so Googled for it and learned:

    (1) There are several of these in several sizes: Ferrari-Red, -Black, -Yellow, -Racing, and "just" Ferrari (which may be the "original -Red"?)

    (2) Prices for these are all over the map. High in fancy stores, lots of discounts on the Internet, cheapest on San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf, where some of the sleazo tourist shops probably scarfed them off the back of delivery trucks.

    So, for any connoisseurs here:

    (1) Which flavor is best? (I.e., which makes your wife/girlfriend/both rip her clothes off, but doesn't make the cats hiss at you?)

    (2) Assuming you don't live in San Francisco, what's the cheapest Internet source you've found?

    I ordered 2 recently: Black and Yellow.
    I paid $19 for a 4.2 ounce spray. Go to www.scentiments.com
    Look under "F" for Ferrari and scroll down. I bought a "tester" bottle of each for $19 each. It is not a fake and comes in a plain box and the bottle is full.
    Works for me!

    Ferrari has made perfums for a while. They used to have fragrances for the individual cars (e.g. "456").

    I like "F1 Racing" and the latest one "Passion" the best.

    Make sure you smell it before you buy (okay, okay, I can hear the off color posts coming now!). I got a bottle of the regular stuff (just "Ferrari" from what I remember) for xmas and dumped it because I couldn't stand it. No matter how much I like the marque, I just couldn’t hack the smell. To each his own.

    I went with black on a whim. Got it on a deal, sealed and all over the net. I actually dig the stuff, but I don't overuse it.

    The Lady Perfume is called "Donna Ferrari" :) I use it and it's great!
    And my hubby uses both the black and red Ferrari.... both smells great!!! But the black is the one that has the most "roar" !!!! ;)

    But take care when buying on the internet... some sell some fake ones :(

    ....its over priced and you have to pay someone a ridiculous amount to put it on for you.

    Maybe I'm different from the rest of you guys and girls, but I don't have a favourite perfume. I just go through them one by one. When one is done, I get a different one. That's how I "tested" all Ferrari perfumes. Change is the spice of life.

    I never knew Ferrari had cologne till a few months ago. Browsing thru the mall with a friend, she decided to check out the fragrance boutique. While bored and waiting I notice a Ferrari logo on a bottle on the very top shelf. I asked the associate to sample the Ferrari cologne, it smells pretty good. My friend liked it too. Forgot what color it was, I know there were two. I strolled that mall the rest of that day smelling like a brand new Stradale :D

    My daughter gave me some of the Red, it's more on the spicy, heavy side than I usually like, but the piston motif bottles are cool!

    I have never even heard about this Ferrari perfume before? I must inquire, where do you get this perfume from?

    Ferrari needs to stop making all these little extras like shoes, laptop computers and now this and stick with cars. next thing you know they will make a flatscreen TV with HD.

    Merchandising is big business and pays big bills for the Scuderia.
