Reviews of Carthusia Uomo

This fragrance reminds me of a old Insignia deodorant (light blue can) from the Eighties. It also bears a resemblance to Ice Men by Mugler.

It has a fresh musky mossy geranium scent mixed in with woods. It smells nice but very one dimensional, it does not hold my interest.

JDE's review captures much of what I experience with Carthusia Uomo, so I will try to be brief.

I can see how some might dismiss this as redundant or generic (I get echoes of D&G Light Blue, for instance), but I like this style of fragrance. What sets Uomo apart is that it is very well constructed. It took me half a dozen wearings to fully appreciate it, and I feel I'm still getting to know it.

I don't smell much raspberry (at least not in a "fruity" sense), but the seaweed note that others have mentioned dances wonderfully throughout the mid notes.

This could be worn casually or for a semi-formal occasion, but it certainly has an "elegance" to it. Uomo is probably best suited for warmer weather.

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 "
