The mathematical mean between vintage Montana for Men and Guy Laroche's Horizon, this is a cool, herbal-woody scent that smells like being in a forest on an alien planet. Lovely and smooth, but I would recommend trying Henry Cottons In Blue if you want the same but a little stronger, as Krizia's offering withers rather quickly.
Opens with a sharp, acrid, green blast of pine/juniper, like scrambling through a conifer hedge. The harshness fades quite quickly. It's clean, sharp and masculine. It feels very classy, something more subtle, smart, smooth and complicated underneath all the fir branches.
It reminds me of Quorum, and I can see it shares the pine, sandalwood, artemesia and oakmoss, but where Quorum is macho, this is more classy - manly rather than macho. I can picture a very masculine, smart, fit guy in a suit - a sort of James Bond character.
The remaining skin scent is smooth, aromatic and delicious. Sexy in fact.
Longevity about 6 hours and sillage moderate (I think, I always overspray everything anyway..)
It's fantastic good value in my opinion - smells way more classy than the price tag would suggest. Worth a blind buy.
The opening of Uomo is fruity and fresh classic out of barbershop style. Nevertheless, this is only for the beginning and it's subjective. The main core of the fragrance immediately appears with waxy leathery aldehyde and mossy pattern. It is softened by junipers and carnation. For the base of the fragrance you have perfect role of dense Iso E Super mingled with leather and moss.
Uomo has very near similarity to Jacques Bogart One Man Show, as marked by other, and slight similarities to Gengis Khan by Marc de la Morandiere.
Scent: if you're in classics you probably love it or tempt to have it in your collection, but if you're not you skip over it after it settles in middle layer.
Austere herbal cologne with plasticy florals and a vetiver-leather base.
Good for hot weather.
This is a typical powerhouse fougere from the 1980s.
There's carnation, cumin, lavender, patchouli and vetiver here. It's loud and very strong, which is very much what was in favor during that decade for men's scents. Like other Basenoters, I get no pine at all.
I am reminded of both Enrico Sebastiano's signature scent and Empreinte's Courreges, with their emphases on the "dirty" cumin note.
Perfectly pleasant spicy masculine, just not unique or outstanding in any way.
