Why All The Hate???

Just received Zegna Uomo today and it is much better than I had anticipated. A Great Blind Buy.

Yes, this is way too similar to YSL L'Homme Libre.
That being said, this works better with my chemistry than Libre does...

Uomo remains linear on my skin...mostly Violet Leaf and Pepper.
But it is clean, well formulated and has nice longevity.
It has better longevity than Libre for me.

I would feel perfectly comfortable wearing this for any ocassion.

Middle of the road, another office fragrance really. Strongly reminds me of dSquared He Wood.

In my review of the dSquared fragrance, I said it smells of sherbet refreshers - this is pretty much the same.

Citrus, light, but just... strange.

Perhaps Zegna ought to stick to clothing. I remember Zegna doing one or two passable fragrances in the ‘90s, but this latest masculine release is just depressing. It starts out on a pleasant, if unexciting, citrus top note, but soon turns harsh and chemical, with a hackneyed “aquatic” note, violet leaf, and grating artificial woods competing in some kind of infernal olfactory cage fight. Nobody wins – least of all the poor guy who gets stuck wearing this stuff.

Zegna Uomo is a great summer scent. It opens very citrusy and dries down to a sweet violet. It smells fresh and clean. Perfect for the Florida heat and humidity, since these two factors make it project even more. I get 6-7 hours when I spray it on my clothes. I love it!!

I definitley wrote this one off too soon. While this isn't anything groundbreaking or amazing, and yet still very generic, it's cheap enough now to be bottle worthy to me, and a great casual fragrance for any time of year.

The first time I wore it, I thought it smelled cheap and chemical, which I don't think anymore now that I own a bottle. Longevity though leaves something to be desired. I think the poor reviews really slaughtered this ones reputation and forced its price decline, but hey that works for me. I picked up a bottle on Ebay for about 14 bucks shipped.

I agree with the resemblance to L'homme Libre, they are very similar, except Libre has a lot of pink pepper. They both share the same citrus and vetiver notes, they both have a ton of violet leaf. Libre is a little darker, with better longevity, and of course spicier from the pink pepper note.

You may not turn any heads with Uomo, you may not even get noticed. It's a nice comforting fragrance though, that's gonna be discontinued if it hasn't already been. At anything under 20 bucks, it's a steal.

I agree with Silentrich, this is an extremely linear fragrance. I don't get the cumin note he gets though, thank goodness, because that would be off putting to say the least. I do however get a very synthetic dry down which he also refers to, and he is spot on.

The bottle is gorgeous in my opinion. It has great texture, a slim profile, and gives a unique illusion when looked at from angles. Looks great on the shelf.

I find myself reaching for this one a lot when I am just going out to run errands.

I don't understand the hate its getting on here, in my opinion it smells good and unlike anything I have ever smelt before, which is why I like it as much as I do. A bit synthetic perhaps, but still amazing!
