    Default Best of the Valentino Uomo line?

    What are your opinions on this line?

    I just got the Valentino Uomo(2014 version) after having previously bought the Intense and the Acqua flankers.
    Imo, this is quite a bit underwhelming compared to the other two, like something just doesn't click. Weirdly enough, when I previously tested it on a paper strip, it seemed to have a bit more sparkle. That isn't to say it's bad, it's a solid 8, but the Intense and to a lesser extent the Acqua seem overall more refined to me.

    Have yet to test the Noir Absolu(2017 flanker) though, but I'd love to hear your opinions on how they all stack up.

    I love the original most, but the others are enjoyable. The original is most like a coffee drink I love. Stuck on it!

    Of the four in your list, for me, which I have tried, Uomo I found to be the most pleasant.pleasant.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    From a personal viewpoint alone and within the current lineup, the Intense, at least up to this point

    My vote goes for the original too. It is a wonderfull fragrance and I really like its notes of myrtle and roasted coffee beans.

    I have opted for VUI. Having briefly only tried VUI and VU I can't comment overly explicitly but VUI I was more taken aback with on account of tending to dislike 'makeup' scented fragrances.

    In my humble opinion Intense is in a league of it's own. Great fragrance. One of the best designer releases of the past 10 years.
