Reviews of Uomo Signature

The original Salvatore Ferragamo Uomo (2016) was an ambroxan-fueled aromachemical take on the gourmand theme introduced in earnest through Thierry Mugler A*Men (1996), and was composed by Alberto Morillas and Aurelian Guichard. That original scent has its fans but is clearly dialed towards capitalizing on the "ambroxan bomb" category which has been a runaway success for designer perfumery in the male segment. For Uomo Signature (2018), Alberto Morillas returns alone for something more personal, more special, and less-reliant on vulgar chemical overdoses, even though they are still there, just dialed back to become part of the composition instead of the focus. In the place of such a huge ambroxan sledgehammer comes a coffee note, bringing the Morillas-penned Uomo Signature even closer to that of A*Men, but this is no pure homage, and manages to stand on its own two legs just fine. Uomo Signature isn't exciting, and it isn't revolutionary, but as a modern designer still using ambroxan as a slight crutch, it is more respectable than many in its category. Guys who already have gourmands in their wardrobe may feel something like Uomo Signature is redundant, but I don't think the scent seeks the attention of the hardcore Colognoisseur anyway.

Salvatore Ferragamo Uomo Signature opens with mandarin orange, pink pepper, and some dusty nutmeg. It doesn't take long at all for the cardamom to follow up, and it is a pretty thick application of the stuff too, so you had better like spicy if you are to like this. Uomo Signature is so much thicker in this regard to the original Salvatore Ferragamo Uomo that if there was any doubt the older one was a winter scent, there is no shred of uncertainty about what kind of weather in which you should wear signature, especially when the cinnamon comes in to kick ass alongside the cardamom. This is a spicy as gourmands tend to get here, but the coffee and patchouli tandem playing the biggest respect to A*Men shows up in a few minutes after the top and middle unfold, with a gentler application of both than the older Thierry Mugler scent, bolstered by the warm glow of a dialed-back ambroxan and musk. If Uomo Signature is any kind of bomb at all, it is a tonka bomb, for the sheer overdose of coumarin in the base of this takes over for the coffee, patchouli, and ambroxan during the final skin scent phase, merging with the musk to radiate on skin for hours. Supposedly a leather note is here, but I don't get much of that myself, even though I admit being something of a leather stickler so if it doesn't hit me in the face, I'm not satisfied with it. Wear time is a full day being an eau de parfum, but sillage is not as intense, so you won't have to worry about suffocating anyone in your winter commute to the office in a subway car or carpool, but I would still suggest moderating sprays anyway.

Salvatore Ferragamo isn't exactly my cup of tea, and its hodgepodge of modern chemistry with 90's gourmand revival aesthetics more than makes up for the craven monster that is the original Salvatore Ferragamo Uomo, since Siganture shows better blending and some restraint, trading ambroxan for more tonka and some clever use of classic gourmand notes. Once again, this is no breakthrough for the brand, and certainly holds no candle to the original Salvatore Ferragamo Pour Homme (1999) or even F by Ferragamo Pour Homme (2007), which were worked on by Jacques and son Olivier Polge respectively, and do things in finer filigrees than usually manageable by mainstream darling Morillas. Still, this is a safe thing to explore for a younger guy that wants to try his hand with some gourmand tones, but doesn't wish to stray too far "from the light" of convention just yet, so the artistic merging of what he already knows with what he has yet to try works out pretty well. Thumbs up from me, but as with most things readily available in department stores, I encourage a test before committing any cash to the purchase. A kinder gentler, more modern A*Men this is in spirit, but that may not be enough for the seasoned hobbyist.

I love it. Imagine, if you will, a fall day in NYC wearing a new leather jacket sipping a spiced latte walking right by one of those hot honey roasted nuts places on the side walk. Sprinkle some cinnamon and cardamom and on top and that's what this fragrance smells like to me. I've also said it's the more mature man's answer to 1 Million Lucky.

I like this one, though it isn't markedly different than Uomo its predecessor.

Leather is up front and in your face! It is bold like the original, yet smoother and a bit more reserved. Still a great party scent like the original, and it has the signature tart-spicy-sweet vibe that many men's fragrances have adopted nowadays.

Great scent to have esp. for collectors, but practically speaking it's not a major departure from the original.
