    Default Krizia Uomo - should I add it to my collection?

    I really don't recall this fragrance too much. Back in 1990 I remember sampling it while on vacation CA in either Bullocks or I.Magnin - yet I can't recall the fragrance smell.

    Is it a long lasting scent? Strong 80's? I never found any of the other Krizia scents for men being strong or overpowering....

    when he says killer he means it will stop a rhino in heat at 20 yards!....Its good very well blended ...but very strong and harsh...sample before you buy...

    I used to use Krizia Uomo in the late 90s and alll my female friends were excited about it.

    It's a strong, perfect, masculine fragrances.... do not get it if you're in fresh/aquatic, otherwise you'll love it!

    Very powerful Italian fragrance. Smells of the Italian countryside...cypress, lavender, citrus, jasmine. Quite a stunning formula. I'd say to go for it. I like to to dress in Italian clothes and Italian-made shoes and spray on Krizia and go out for the day feeling like I'm in Rome or Milan for the day!

    A most definite buy. Kriza was one of my favorites before I really began to delve into niche scents. Very masculine, very projective (sillage).

    Strong. Kind of like Lagerfeld Classic but much more pungent and sharp.

    I would not recommend blind buying this. Furthermore, I can't figure out when I would wear Krizia Uomo...perhaps on a vacation to Vegas?

    Oh Gosh this review worries me. I better get a sample of this before buying a bottle.

    I place it somewhere between Xeryus and Photo in terms of its composition and over-all strength. As I like both Xeryus and Photo very much, I can recommend it. That said, I'm not sure it's the best blind buy in the world, as it's a definitely atavistic throwback in terms of "power frag-itude." All that said, how can you really go wrong for the price? On the off chance you don't like it, well, you can always swap or sell it with no harm done.

    Krizia Uomo is still a cheap best seller amond the "oldies".

    Get it! You won't regret the buy. It is such a clear and luminous scent!

    Ok .. I have used this on a number of occasions over the past month & its a winner !! I recomend this to those who are looking for something completely of the scale on the opposite side of sweet .
    It sits comfortably alongside my Yatagan & Vendetta .
    Spicy dry & woodsy , its a unique powerhouse .
    I will be testing Spazio & Moods both from Krizia next week .

    Krizia introduced Krizia Uomo in 1984. This fine fragrance contains marjoram, lavender, coriander and is accented with jasmine, leather and musk. Krizia Uomo is perfect for casual use.

    I'm just trying it out again as I type. I get the lavender, woods and the jasmine. I always get the leather.

    Back when this was new and I didn't know much about fragrance, this always made me feel like I was wearing a very fine Italian leather jacket. Still does.
