Anthonydg's thread asks what do Uomo and Epicea have in common? and to me it is the green wood opening notes. Both just smell piney especialy during the first few hours. Other than this simialrity I really don't think they are very much alike at all. The opening first impression of Uomo is very green woods from the juniper and sage oils. Luca Turin in The Guide calls LV Uomo "woody incense"
, "pleasantly dry and transparent, and not bad at all. ***. The drydown keeps this green feeling but gets very traditional and dense with a patchouli, sandalwood and vetiver drydown. I sometimes think of Uomo as a vetiver fragrance too but, juniper and sage added to vetiver keeps that green pine wood feel of LV Uomo that reminds me a bit of Creed's Epicea. Epicea is more a pine woods fragrance throughout, but the green woods are where they find their kinship.
