Uomo opens with a blast of bright citrus – the peel, the pulp, the leaves, the juice – it’s green and orange and yellow, and spectacular. My husband says he can smell turpentine after 30 seconds or so – he’s become a committed Uomo fan in the last few days – and I can detect it, too. I think this turpenic accord is the combination of the bitter petit grain and laurel notes, mixed with coriander and resinous herbal lavender. This sharpness recedes, the citrus sweetens ever so slightly becoming juicier, and the heart notes starts to emerge.

Pepper, clove, sage, thyme, form the rich spicy-herbal potent heart of Uomo, full of life, drawing nose to wrist unbidden. The pungent accord is amplified by aromatic juniper of gin-and-tonic fame, which has a piny conifer note, and builds a bridge into the woody dry-down after an hour or so. Uomo’s woods are green, mossy, and foresty from vetiver, oakmoss, and cedar, with a hint of citrus floating on the edges. 
As the dry-down deepens, creamy sandalwood and herbal patchouli mix with the green forest notes, the cedarwood becomes richer, the wood accord is smoothed and softened by the musk – and the citrus is still there, fading in and out, but still there. The dry-down is just wonderful, and Uomo stays on your skin for several hours, with a subtle sillage.

Uomo was made for men, but is worn by women too, because Uomo is one of those scents that feeds the senses, makes you feel good, lifts the spirit, gives confidence – you know, the kind of scent that you reach for unthinkingly and wear often, until one day you notice the bottle is almost empty.
