Reviews of Carthusia Uomo

Wow Carthusia Uomo is a blast of geranium and green leaves. It smells sophisticated and clean. Balanced off by soft musk, woody notes and citrus. Very, very masculine. I love the way I smell right now. Very well made and long lasting.

Luca Turin gives this only one star and dismisses it as a "citrus woody." I would not be that severe, but it is dismissible.

I get only one of the notes put out by both Carthusia's web site (Cashmere -what does that smell like?, Kelp, Citrus, Cedarwood) and other Basenoters in these reviews (Rosewood, Raspberry, Leather).

On my skin to my nose it begins as a very light cumin, followed by an equally light and pleasant musk - and that's it. No development, no other notes. A light and refreshing summer splash of no distinction. I would expect to find this in a drug store selling for $10 per 100 ml.

As such, it only gets a neutral rating from me. Pleasant, but simplistic and unremarkable.

modest sillage and duration, boring to tears to say the least, a mistake that won't be made again!

Charmingly old school

Molded after old school masculine colognes with citrusy-fruity top transitioning through floral-herbal-woodsy-musky facets. Reminds me somewhat of a slightly aqueous [b]Drakkar Noir[/b] with modest sillage and longevity. The backstory about monks and flowers seems more interesting than the scent itself though I won't be surprised if a woman find this scent incredibly attractive for no reason other than the fact it reminds her of her father.

Pros: Masculine
Cons: Too fatherly for some "

You really have to like rosewood to appreciate this one. There's a lot of it and the addition of some tame fruity and floral notes barely detract from its predominance. Hence, it's a bit one-dimensional. Good longevity, average projection.

I would never have guessed that raspberry could work in a male fragrance. I'm glad that Carthusia Uomo has proved me wrong.

Carthusia Uomo smells deliciously sophisticated and rich. It's quite distinctive with sharp notes of fruity raspberry, rosewood, leather and salt. Thankfully this fragrance isn't too sweet. The raspberry note is natural, meaning that the only sweetness here is what you may expect from smelling a basket of freshly picked berries.

I do agree with this fragrance being an aromatic. It has a lovely, soothing quality despite its liveliness. Carthusia is quite a busy scent although it is not as complex as some fragrances.

The scent reminds me of the smell of a brand, spanking new computer. 'New-ness' has a smell, and Carthusia Uomo kind of has that the same smell. To be honest it was the first thing I noticed when I first smelt this.

The lasting power and sillage were good for me, and especially pleasing was the development on the skin, which was rather crisp and energizing. Once again I am impressed with Carthusia.
