Maximum difference
... or so Fendi's letter to Jacques Cavallier could have sounded. Maximum difference to Fendi Uomo from 1988, the balmy, almost cinnamon-gourmand late-80s debut of the company, an Italo-Antaeus or Mediterranean Bel Ami, including ads campaign in front of Roman antiquity in Renaissance pose, part photographed by Lagerfeld.

And the difference could hardly have been greater. Cavallier, since some time only under the double name Cavallier-Belletrud mentioned, was in the 90s on a variety of most different as successful alley hit involved. Perhaps Fendi simply wanted an eau à la Issey. But Cavallier's result is one of the lightest, most sheer and green organza fabrics I've come across. Other fragrances, especially from the designer sector of the time seem like the heaviest whale loden against it, Comme des Garçons Series 1: Leaves comes close to Theorema Uomo, later some of the Ellenaschen Hermessences, but the Fendi remains more conventional perfume than reductive-skillful staging of ingredients. Theorema is once perfumed cut meadow grass, or its industrialized counterpart, sans plastic notes in a lightly aquatic mist of geranium, mint, vetiver, bergamot, nutmeg and cardamom. The oscillation is successful, the perfume seems artificial and interwoven enough to not just hallucinate impressionistic gardener's constructs; spotting the presumed notes is difficult if you were to increase the potencies by a factor of ten, you might end up near Geranium pour Monsieur's mint-geranium-musk trio at some point. Theorema remains synthetic and ultra-light. Werner Sobek writes "Designing in lightweight construction is the search for the lightest possible ... reduction to a minimum previously thought inconceivable ...". Theorema Uomo is not even minimal, in the sense that it focuses on a reduction of one, two, three ingredients, it seems like a broad spray, diffuse, temporary, fleeting, lightweight construction, but voluminous and yet in slimmed-down 90s outfit. Outlines of a façade behind wafts of fog, somewhere in the Po plain, or in Milan's suburbs. Melancholic? Maybe the Fendi was too much, too much of a water past which sailed a whole armada of greenest ingredients and, thanks to enough osmosis an impressively volatile eau has emerged.
Theorema Uomo comes in light green liquid, it couldn't be more fitting, in a functional-looking bottle, pared down when you think of Uomo's meticulous Terrazzo Gold Monstrance. Whether the intriguing name has anything to do with Pasolini's 1968 film of the same name, Teorema - without the 'h' - is not yet clear to me; Theorema is not particularly beguiling. The more voluptuous ladies' version of Theorema from 1998 or the Fendi's of the 80's perhaps had more in common with this bourgeoisie.

Not your next discontinued holy grail
Theorema Uomo is a fresh woody thingy without praise or blame; synthetic woods (vetiver is listed: I just get some generic wood feel), pepper and other spices, citrus notes, a slight ozonic feel, perhaps some classic masculine flowers on the fresh side like geranium or lavender, herbal notes. I admit the woody notes are as much artificial as unusually crisp and sharp, and overall it has a sort of Mediterranean pleasant feel of “fresh nature”, but overall I consider Theorema Uomo a dull scent – a fresh, office-safe fragrance like hundreds of others. Contrary to its feminine companion, which is one of the greatest perfumes of the last couple of decades, this is highly neglectable.

5,5-6/10

This isn't as remarkable as its feminine counterpart, but it's a great casual and office scent. It does have,as some mentioned bellow, a kind of fresh-fruity opening, but on me it doesn't last too much. It morphs into a mixture of green, peppery, woody and musky nuances, that seems tuned to pass a clean and quiet longlasting impression. I'd say that the peppery part is the most noticeable from the combination, but it's not so intense. It's really pleasant on summer days and i think it's worthy if you find for a good price.

I've found it!
Luckly i've found this scent left alone in a shelf at Buenos Aires. I did not think twice: bought it.

Smells like a classic woody-vetiver fragrance, it has a good lasting power, sillage and projection.

The geranium and musk gives it an edge over many vetiver based fragrances.
