Hi Sharlenec -- I'm glad my recommendations seemed helpful. It is nice of you to plan that present. I thought of what you might be able to find easily. Here's two more:
Tuscan Soul by Salvatore Ferragamo. A fairly new scent, very pleasant in the same style as Dimensione Uomo but even better. It comes with a variety of products like shower gel and moisturing lotion.
Eau D'Orange Verte by Hermes. This is an absolute classic -- citrus-green and very attractive.
Cheers, best to you. ody
Hi again, I'm wearing DU. It is a fresh style of scent, with some citrus in the opening and some woods and light musk in the dry-down. This is a very basic sort of scent, probably there are many in this style. It isn't heavy or sweet. If you can't get DU, I'd suggest Aqua di Gio by Armani -- that is somewhat similar and basically available everywhere. And it is an even better scent in terms of quality. DU is a drugstore type of scent, nothing wrong with that. Even better than AG is one of my favorites, Essenza di Zegna by Ermengildo Zegna. That is really a super version of AG, just excellent. Cheers, ody.
Hi Sharlenec -- thanks for your note asking about Dimensione Uno. I just got mine at a little Italian deli which also sells soaps and Pino Silvestre products. It is a kind of obscure item in North America, but probably widely available in Italy. I'll give it a try soon and let you know if there may be something similar and easier to get. Cheers, ody
