A Hint of Maleness & Sensualness
I remember very well my Arrogance Uomo. It was 1987, I was 23yo, and this perfume was sharing the market with Krizia, Missoni, Ferré, Versace, Trussardi, and Armani, all Italian designer brands. When I saw it on the shelf of a supermarket, in promotion, I tested the product on my skin, and promptly images and memories of that time appeared clear and vivid in my mind. I didn't notice any reformulations right off the bat, apart from a modification of a bottle's look. So I bought both the 30 and 75 ml. And what follows is the description of the sensations that this perfume still gives me.

Arrogance Uomo is an old school Italian perfume that boasts a rather unexpected development: is a green, aromatic, and woody all-round perfume. I'm not sure I recognize all the notes listed in the olfactory pyramid. Perhaps they were present in the original concept. However, on my skin, it starts nicely with a loud burst of citrus and lavender. The blend is intensely aromatic, bright bergamot, and soothing lavender is detectable and very pleasant, giving me beautiful fougère undertones. Soon, balsamic mugwort joins the mix, while the other opening notes quickly subside. In this first phase, the scent is fresh, with a notable influence of British lavender. It almost seems to sink your nose into a handful of freshly picked and crumbled lavender flowers in your hands.

The heart is involved, dimmer, with greenish geranium leaves and dried carnation flowers. The perception of white flowers is scanty, and the rose, if it is truly present, drowns in a sea of dark red flowers and greenish leaves. The herbaceous and fougère quality remains in this significant phase.

The bottom is deep, made of roots and moss, with a vibrant musk-like feel and a lot of sandalwoods. I get herbs and musk—a good dose of dry cedarwood and oakmoss that oozes later. Oops, I almost forgot to mention the vetiver, which you can smell from the first notes, and then it dominates as the perfume dries. The last track has a barber's touch, which could not be missing!

The overall effect is that of perfume with very virile tones: it is green, it is woody, it is earthy, it is dry, an aroma that is like a withered woodland. It's made of quality ingredients, despite its budget price. An exclusive perfume, still exciting today amid gourmand and amber sweeties, to admit that it does its job very well. Arrogance Uomo is one of those ultra-cheap perfumes with an exceptional quality of all respect, so beautiful that you can risk a blind purchase if you are fond of the genre. The overall quality is outstanding, with longevity that is still excellent, a full working day, and the sillage that is moderate after the initial blast fills the surrounding space. The nuances suggest rocking it during the chilly days of spring and autumn and trying on cold summer nights. People looking for safe office fragrances may consider trying it.

This review bases upon a 75 ml (2.5 fl. oz) bottle I own since November 2015.

Gentle nutmeg lolls on a dense bed of flowers and wood
Without Parfumo.de, Monsieur would never have tried or even purchased a fragrance of this brand name and a bottle of this ugliness.
But the comments of the esteemed predecessors here were so positive and stimulating that this Italian alley-scent now, hidden in the second row, has been living here for a while. And his older, more massive and darker brother (Arrogance homme) and the Arogance Uomo Aftershave, which by the way is also very persistent and gently swings through the morning, also lives here.
The scent is very difficult to describe, but I hear a nicely balanced mixture of a melody of nutmeg, quite strong but at the same time soft and less sharp than in Dunhill Edition. And underneath is a somewhat fluffy and soapy clean bed of flowers and woods that I can't decipher. The vetiver might deliver a basso continuo, but so piano that you don't notice it as such - not comparable to vetiver scents like the Guerlain or the Encre Noirs.
In Germany, you rarely seem to catch this ugly duckling with the soul of a beautiful swan online, in Italy's drugstores probably more often. For those who like it discreet, the after shave, which carries further than most of its kind, is enough. The Sillage of the EdT is rather strong, the durability is good with about 8 hours. I think you can wear this fine fragrance of unpronounceable name in summer and winter quite well - subtracted perhaps extremely warm or extremely cold days, where it could appear pungent or too listless.
One problem remains, of course, what you want to answer in an appealing environment when you are asked for the name of this nasal flatterer. Arrogance Uomo is hard for an adult with manners to say.

Arrogant?
Fresh and spirited, yes, but easier to wear than his brother pour Homme.
A dry vetiver makes itself noticed and is together with cedar the main actor.
The flowers in between, do the whole one
little legeere.
Who stands on male, classical, expressive - vintage scents, is here surely good
served. A fragrance with corners and edges that stands stable on both legs from beginning to end.

Very strong Sillage the first hour. Shelf life: after 8 hours it is still there.
Very nice to wear in summer at not overheated temperatures.
His AS is good.

A touch of class and mystery (...at an affordable price!)
This fragrance is timeless and evergreen. Born in the late 80es, in the era of opulent fragrances, this one keeps nowadays its balanced character, strong but not intoxicating, deep and masculine, but also gentle with its unexpected flowery heart. A wonderful classic you can enjoy whenever you want for its quite affordable price. It could be the perfect gift for a classy and mysterious man for its elegant black bottle and it could be stolen by an unconventional woman who likes playing to the "gentleman" stealing this scent from her man's perfumed wardrobe! Why not?

One of fall scent favorites of mine. Old school raw leather, dark patchouli, earthy vetiver, magically mixed with aromas and red blossoms!
