The name Salvatore Ferragamo conjures up the image of luxurious shoes, clothing, handbags and well-known elegant perfumes. The Ferragamo company is family owned, and the care and perfectionism found in its products extends to its fragrances.
Born in Italy, Ferragamo learned shoemaking at an early age and, in 1914, moved to the United States where he worked in a boot factory and later attended the University of Southern California to study anatomy; he wanted to find out why shoes hurt the feet. Returning to Florence, Italy, he designed and sold shoes to the rich and famous. In the 1950s, he had many stores in both Italy and the United States and a large workforce.
The Ferragamo company introduced its line of perfumes in 1998 with Salvatore Ferragamo for Women, a sophisticated spicy, green scent. The Ferragamo and Incanto lines of perfumes have been manufactured by Ferragamo Parfums since 2001.
As of 2014, there are 41 perfumes produced by the company, including the original Salvatore Ferragamo and F by Ferragamo, a floral perfume with a heady combination of jasmine, orange blossom and rose. The Incanto line, which is available on THEKULT.COM, produces classics like Incanto for Women, a white floral and fruity scent depicting Ferragamo's love for beauty.
