My Signature Scent in 2021
A basil-rosemary-thyme-oakmoss bomb of a chypre, with lavender and a pleasant clove. The dry-down reveals a good dose of leather and some patchouli. It's a delightful manly herbal fragrance - the bottle I reached out for most in 2021.

Projection and longevity are very good. It's hard to believe this used to sell for €10 in drugstores. Basile must have been the best bottom-of-the-barrel brand in the 80s. Steer clear of the current Basile Uomo Intense as it's a bad One Million clone.

Masculinity Level: John Rambo in the forest being hunted down by the sheriff in First Blood, before the character became a caricature.

The day before yesterday in the herb disco
Weruska & Joel, the comanche of the Italian fragrance industry, a brother in the spirit of SDI, has been following the trail of Basile Uomo for some time now. Basile was surrounded, captured, and set up. But you have to be grateful to Weruska & Joel that this wonderful fragrance still exists. But at prices that don't necessarily make the consumer reach for this fragrance. After all, € 6.99 for after shave and € 8.99 for eau de toilette is out of the question, isn't it (discount drugstores in Italy, not available this side of the Alps)? Trash? Crap?
Anyway.

Both versions, the one from 1987 and the one from 2002, whereby the latter has been revised in the meantime, are very similar. Those who like R de Capucci or Enrico Coveri Pour Homme will find what they are looking for. Forest and moss and green green green.
A herb disco like in the old days So 1988 at the northern Italian lakes, in a motorboat at Lake Maggiore, hair blowing in the wind, Antonello Venditti is streaming out of the denon box, the fashion reminds of Miami Vice and in the evening at the disco wrapped in Basile Uomo, but the pretty Bionda is sticking to my side. Wouldn't have missed it for the world... Ho finito.

Basile can do much more than basil
What a rarely beautiful prelude, bright and moving. Green of all shades, marbled with citrus yellow and lavender lilac - the citric and the herbaceous, cool and warm notes, light and dark play around and enhance each other like yin and yang.

After a quarter of an hour, the fragrance becomes calmer, but by no means boring. Cloves, nutmeg and galbanum form a bright triad with an abundance of overtones. It smells spicy and resinous close to the skin, while fine menthol accents unfold in the projection. No trace of flowers and berries. After an hour, the perfume becomes softer and more earthy. Cinnamon is added, but not sweet and gourmand Ceylon cinnamon from the scatter can, but thick bork cassia cinnamon from the jungle.

The pleasure lasts for two hours, until oakmoss and sandalwood begin, and the fragrance gradually fades away, friendly, completely without leather and patchouli. It is still good, but towards the brilliant beginning the end is quite inconspicuous. (That may be because of my skin.)

All-season fragrance, quite cooling in summer. Multifaceted and balanced, but not pleasing: certainly too exhausting for noses that only know modern perfumes

Accidentalmente
This bottle came into my possession by chance. I had ordered Basile for women (Basile Femme) and I got this as there was a small bar-code sticker with "Basile for women" on the box, even though the box itself says very clearly in big letters "BASILE UOMO" (uomo is Italian for man), but then you can not expect everyone knowing Italian.

Luckily the company I ordered it from has great costumer service and I could also keep it, so after smelling it it got a place in my collection. It is quite a herbal chypre (I would classify it as herbal also, if that was in the classification list), starting with a green blast of herbs which I can not all identify but the basil seemed most noticeable; I checked with the basil pot at the kitchen window. Oakmoss is very strong here and gives a cool forest feeling. After five, six hours leather is also noticeable, but subdued to the oakmoss. I guess that the other notes round Basile up and hold the dominant notes together without showing up front.

Basile uomo can very well be worn by women if they like their chypre green, herbal and strong. It is great for everyday and business, it goes well with jeans or business suits and is a good match for summer days.
