Reviews of Uomo Noir Absolu

They got the name right for me, night time usage at its best, dark and seductive to the core (black shirt and candle lit night clubs), begin's with a peppery creamy sandalwood with a very faint whiff of iris or something that is giving it a waxy feel, as time goes on the cinnamon becomes apparent and the incense is allowed to gently shine all through the dry down of many hours. I'm reminded of fragrances like xerjoff's ivory route minus the smokey note and less dry, the price for this is completely justified regarding quality of ingredients, presentation and performance. Fabulous release by Valentino.

I'm not too familiar with the Valentino Uomo scents, having smelled the other three but not really having sampled them. Uomo Noir Absolu in particular seemed to be received very warmly, and I picked up a decant.

It's as described, a masculine blend centered around iris, modified by sandalwood, incense, pepper, and cinnamon, quite spicy and woody throughout but the incense lends its resinous sweetness, which emerges as the iris fades.

The fragrance opens sharp, and dries down sweeter. Its performance is pretty strong throughout, with hours of projection and significant longevity beyond that.

I put it roughly in the same category as Bvglari Man in Black, a well-constructed masculine winter blend, not too sweet, not too edgy, a choice that's likely to work for many, even some women, as it lacks an overly dirty side (i.e. leathery, animalic).

The retail pricing of $118 for 100ml feels a little high, but it seems to make the rounds on some grey market sites.

Really like this flanker of a flanker by Valentino!

The sandalwood really sticks out in Valentino UNA which, along with the pepper and incense combo plus a healthy sprinkling of shaved cinnamon on top of it all, resembles a shimmering ginger in my perception.

Lasts a long time (4 hours plus) and barely reminds me of the original and intense versions of Valentino Uomo. In a word, EXOTIC. The original and intense versions seem to be in a different camp versus UNA, which waxes more as a sophisticated oriental scent a la Dior Homme Parfum (2014). Matter of fact, DHP smells VERY similar to UNA.

Highly recommended as an exotic, classy alternative to the original and intense versions (although I love those as well).

Big, loud, spicy/pepper iris opening . This lasts for 3-4 hours. Afterwards, the drydown is a smooth, creamy sandalwood. Feels best for date night in colder weather.

Excellent projection and longevity lasts into the next day.

Firstly, the bottle is backwards. This gold gilded bottle should have housed the Intense jus, while the bottle for the Intense matches the noir nature of this scent.

On to the jus...

WOW! A TRULY noir offering. Easily a niche offering.

Dark. Deep. Intriguing. Attractive. Off putting at initial sniff...like it has no saving grace. Spicy too.

This is sexy.
