I saw this litte gem on Ebay described by the seller as having the following notes:
Notes: Cardamom, coriander, hazelnut, pink peppercorn, cognac
If I am to believe this is true, I would experience a somewhat sweet and powdery oriental gourmand
What did I get? Well...here's my take on Modigliani Uomo...
The scent is a surprising melange of notes, immediately calling to mind 2 other fragrances: Dolce and Gabanna pour Homme and Claiborne Spark. Can you imagine the bright zingy topnotes of D & G, and the warmer almost boozey basenotes of Spark? Ok - now reverse them. The opening of Modigliani reveals the warmer notes and the drydown leaves the impression that someone just sprayed D & G!
In the opening I can almost detect the notes as listed above - I get a sweet hazelnut note and a hint of a sweet almond note (cognac?) set against something citrus-ish, but not really lemon, grapefruit, or orange...must be the cardamom seeds...The sweeter notes begin to disappear and a slightly peppery note pops out. And that's about it - from here the scent does a 180 with merely a hint of those gourmand notes remaining in the base and something that reminds me of Lanvin Homme. As the drydown continues, I'm reminded of D & G...
Do I like it? Yeah, I actually do!
Climate? Probably best for cooler weather.
Price? Dirt cheap...do a net search!
