Thanks Bruno!
Some time ago I wrote that there are many different stories about how to get perfumes. Most of them are about how you either bought a fragrance in a perfumery or ordered it in an unspectacular way on an online platform. Then there are perhaps stories that tell about the fact that one discovered his perfume at a flea market or a stock exchange or even somehow bought or exchanged it through the souk here. Of course there are also scents that one got as a present or even found. Those who do not take honesty and morals very seriously might have taken their perfume with the so-called "five-finger discount". Probably would hardly come to a perfume in the mind, but unfortunately it is supposed to exist.

It would probably be no less interesting if you commissioned your fragrance personally and had it produced. But with my Carthusia Uomo everything is completely different. I more or less inherited it. OK - now not in a will with notarial certification, but rather as a minimal memento of a recently deceased friend. He ran a small, but nevertheless well renowned and quite demanding publishing house in Düsseldorf. Although he was no longer the youngest, he still did a lot of things himself within his company. Unfortunately much too much, because despite a heart attack the year before last he could not or did not want to cut back on his time, which in the end turned out anything but well. Tragic, because it was somehow predictable.
I knew him only relatively briefly, but I appreciated his pleasant worldly manner and his enormous general knowledge.

In order to dissolve the publishing house, I was then able to take some literary works from the portfolio in return for a donation and was also asked whether I was interested in his perfumes, after all I was deeply involved in the subject. I was not expecting a large or important collection, but at least the Carthusia Uomu, a nearly full 25 ml bottle, which I gratefully accepted. I don't associate it with personal memories and experiences, but I liked it more than very much when I tried it on. And that has its reason:

What I particularly liked is this tangy-spicy freshness with this light herbaceousness. Bergamot is only used very modestly and is overtrumped by a pleasant soft green note with a skilful shot of patchouli and above all, a good deal of oakmoss. If you like the latter, you've come to the right place, because Carthusia Uomo is bursting with barbershop attitude, without that soapy touch. Maybe it is too much of an aftershave theme or too profane for others. For me it is just right, because these fine-tangy nuances appeal to me. Moreover, this long-lasting eau de parfum reminds me a little of Gucci's Nobile. I know I've mentioned this before, but here, the similarity is particularly intense. Maybe it's also because both fragrances share eleven ingredients in the pyramid, and as Italians, they both radiate that typically spicy Mediterranean flair.

That Carthusia Uomo gets off so badly here, I am a little surprised. After all, I find the scent not so much polarizing or unpleasant, but rather an excellent alternative to Nobile, which was incomprehensibly discontinued and is being traded highly on eBay.

At this point I would like to thank Bruno and especially his sister, who made it possible for me to get to know and appreciate Carthusia Uomo and to keep this welcome souvenir.

Carthusia Uomo
This fragrance opens very lightly with a head note I could not easily identify. It is fresh and slightly salty so I assume it is the kelp. This unusual head note disappears quite fast to leave behind a fruity base note underlined by a woody note. The raspberry note is fresh and aromatic and the rosewood note gives it a certain, much-needed emphasis. I especially like the fact that the wood note is not clean, but sweaty. I associate it with the skin of a person who just had sex. Even at this stage, the fragrance is airy and not overpowering. This fragrance has a classic, manly feel to it and I can understand that it might be too pedestrian for some people.

On the LuckyScent the category of CARTHUSIA UOMO is unisex-male, even if the name of the perfume declares clearly, who is the target. The women. Poor women who smell this on a man. If I would be reaaaallly censorious (and of course I am), I would say, that master Laura Tonatto had someone in her mind when she componated CARTHUSIA UOMO.

The conception is a salty marine scent with berries. These berries are not sweet, friendly or mellow. Rather berries bitten by the frost, hard to rip them off from the branch with wintery hands in the cold air. So aquatic notes agree together with bitter fruits well. If you take a deep and slow breath, you can realize, that the fragrance changes, because it is quite complex.

I can see that longevity and sillage is not too outstanding in voters opinion, but maybe the trick is, that this perfume for men works better on the skin of a woman. The reason: women's nose may be more sensitive for this kind of male fragrance.

CARTHUSIA UOMO will not redeem the world, will not start a revolution, will not stay long with me in my fragrance memory, but I would breath very deep near by any person who wears this fragrance.

Berries for men
I would never have guessed that raspberry could work in a male fragrance. I'm glad that Carthusia Uomo has proved me wrong.

Carthusia Uomo smells deliciously sophisticated and rich. It's quite distinctive with sharp notes of fruity raspberry, rosewood, leather and salt. Thankfully this fragrance isn't too sweet. The raspberry note is natural, meaning that the only sweetness here is what you may expect from smelling a basket of freshly picked berries.

I do agree with this fragrance being an aromatic. It has a lovely, soothing quality despite its liveliness. Carthusia is quite a busy scent although it is not as complex as some fragrances.

The scent reminds me of the smell of a brand, spanking new computer. 'New-ness' has a smell, and Carthusia Uomo kind of has that the same smell. To be honest it was the first thing I noticed when I first smelt this.

The lasting power and sillage were good for me, and especially pleasing was the development on the skin, which was rather crisp and energizing. Once again I am impressed with Carthusia.
