    Default A Forgotten Little Gem: Uomo Ghe by Gherardini (1973)

    Okay, so first let me give y'all my thoughts on the virgin-wearing of this a couple days ago. I highly recommend this for fans of 1970s italian citrus chypres. Or 'fouchypres'...

    "This is a new arrival and a little-known (it seems) italian citrusy musky chypre (although borderline fougére'ish in some parts) called Uomo Ghe (1973) by Firenze-based house Gherardini. It opens with a blast of lemon, bergamot and herbs (I think there is a touch of mandarine too). It goes on with dusty/powdery florals and a touch green, so far reminiscent of Capucci PH. It then goes on dusty and woody-musky in the base and ends on a lovely bed of musky oakmoss, and slightly dirty.
    There's not a whole lot going on and it's not super complex (and it IS a first-ever wearing), but It's gooood and I do enjoy it alot. I first applied it to the back of my hand and it lasted until my shower, 5 hrs on! Now (post-shower), I went full-application.
    On fabric it's appears a tad more crisp and nuanced, but there's just something about it, reacting to your skin's natural musk.
    My bottle is a 1970s atomiseur in pristine condition. Juice is fresh and sharp. Recommended."

    Can't find any note-pyramid on this.
    I just wanted to spread the word on Uomo Ghe, really

    Edit: here's what I could put together from bits and pieces (Note: there are definately notes missing):

    TOP:
    Basil, Bergamot,
    Neroli, Petitgrain, Rosemary
    HEART:
    Geranium, Jasmine, Clary sage,
    BASE:
    Oakmoss, Musk, Tonka bean, Civet

    Thanks for the detailed info on this scent.
    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.

    Looks tasty and properly obscure enough to satisfy the crowd here. If I can find any more info on the house, I'll dig it up for you.
    oh look, I have a signature

    Thanks, ZC! I know they did a feminine counterpart of it, and another masculine in the very early '90s. That's it. Help is much appreciated.
