Migraine accelerator
i had forgotten to put my perfume in my sports bag and was olfactory naked after the workout. Can also do well, but since I was still scheduled for a meal, I did not want to appear there completely fragranceless. So quickly into the Rossmann, ready to grab a solid Bruno Banani or so. There wasn't much to choose from. But then I noticed this unknown Gianfranco Ferre, of whom I had never consciously heard before. So get on it quickly to the most important places, because the company can do something. Could, past tense, I must say. Because this "L'Uomo" is really not good. I'd rather have eaten with my eau de nature. Probably I wouldn't have had to take a shower after the gym and would have smelled even better... Yes, this thing is a horror, embodies almost everything that many current men's fragrances do wrong.

"Ferre for Men" or "Gianfranco Ferre For Men" were great scents. They still are. Despite slight reformulation. But this new men's perfume from the company is the opposite of such (still) insider tips. "L'Uomo" smells like Axe only in more artificial, smells like cheap shower shampoo only in more pungent, smells like a seventh-grader dressing room only in more stinking. A Kuddelmuddel unparalleled, fresh from the lab and a "Y" from YSL doing all the honors. Like "Invictus" only in badly made and half-hearted, like "Boss Bottled" only in lame, arbitrary and characterless. Instead of making me look good, the scent annoyed me and even caused headaches. Okay, they probably would have come without him. But he's so useless, I'm blaming it all on him today. It would be like fish in a sewer to make out scents here. Most likely still green apple and synthetic clay cream, but mostly an indefinable, sweet cacophony. Yikes. It hurts to see Ferre fall so low.

Flacon: fits in Rossmann and Co. - really not really high quality
Sillage: unfortunately still quite strong... Bad. It always hurts twice when you mess around like that.
Shelf life: that 5 hours are too long, is rarely said...

Conclusion: objectively a failure, compared to older Ferres an absolute impertinence. Twilight of the gods. No wonder it's only available in drugstores, if at all. Terrible chemical spill

A Hybrid between Invictus Sweetness and The One Fruitiness
Ouch! I really do not understand all the hate behind this cologne. There are quite a few controversial opinions that range from "Really Disgusting!" to "Goodness Gracious!". How could it be? I mean, everyone is free to express itself, yet I believe this cologne is everything but disgusting....

I came across Ferré's colognes approximately thirty years ago, Gianfranco Ferré for Man was in vogue in the '80, though, that scent was too brave and powerful to me as a youthful guy in his 20 something, a very good leathery scent I was not in love with. Notwithstanding, I have grown up now, and I think I could cope with Ferré fragrances, so I blind bought L’Uomo, a recent delivery of the same house. Well, with my surprise, this is a well-bred and fresh fragrance, semi-sweet, fresh aromatic woody fragrance with oriental qualities that keep it on a refined blend and allows for ultimate elegance.
The best way to describe this would be, a crossbreed between Paco Rabanne Invictus and D&G The One, as if they were layered together. When you first spray The One, that first fruity balsamic mildness is in here, either, just without the tobacco but the same smooth and sweet balsamic smell.

Despite the presence of many spices in the opening, the note I get most out of the other is the sparkling sweet apple, an alleged heart note that kicks in from the very beginning. An accord of warm spicy cardamom and black pepper is present, together with a copious touch of freshly cut ginger root and bright bergamot peel oil. The resulting mix creates a fun and elegant introduction.

In the heart the cologne mutes a little, the middle notes add a bit of softness and these include violet, the leaves are green and ozonic, sage blossom, more delicate than the leaves, artemisia, which calms down the sweetness of the green apple. It is in this phase that L'Uomo has a bit of similarity with Invictus, it has a hint of that Invictus sweetness but not too much.

The bottom notes make the scent warmer and more mysterious, and these include creamy sandalwood, sweet amber, woody cedar, clean moss, and gourmand vanilla. Ultimately, L'Uomo is a woody fragrance, and the entire structure is built around its sandalwood backbone, a robust accord that is extremely smooth and substantial given its synthetic roots.

Overall it's smooth and pleasant, with robust notes and accords that perform more than competently. It is very linear, from the first spray to the dry down. The same sweet, not offensive, not in your face fragrance that projects and lasts. Could work in cool and cold seasons, winter is what I prefer, daily wear for leisure as well as office time, it is not offensive. If you are fond of The One, Invictus, and any other colognes like that, you will enjoy this. Hence, if you're looking for something like those fragrances I just mentioned, and have access to sampling L'Uomo as well, don't leave it out, as it could just as easily be your favorite among them as any other.

L'Uomo a Surprising Scent
SOTD: Gianfranco Ferre L'Uomo: As of 01/12/19

A surprising and awesome Oriental woody scent caught me off guard, to my nose I scent the sandalwood, vanilla, violet, pepper and a hint with ginger & cardamom in the background. But I scent more the sandalwood, violet and vanilla from start to finish. An awesome scent and a vanilla, violet and sandalwood bomb. A must have

Rating

Scent: 8.25/10
Presentation/Design: 8/10
Longevity/Performance: 8/10: Lasted on my skin/skin scent around between 8-10+ hrs
Value: 8/10
Overall: 8.25/10

My SOTD (Scent of the Day): Gianfranco Ferre L'Uomo EDT: As of 02/27/19

Revisiting this scent as my SOTD as of 02/27/19, my 2nd wearing of this fragrance. A surprising scent for me it has that A&F First Intinct/First Instinct Extreme similar vibe/scent. My nose detects the vanilla, sandalwood and violet which dominates from the opening and the dry down, but I do detect on the top note the bergamot, ginger, cardamom and hint of the black pepper. A great and superb scent and a hidden gem, and as well a great value/bargain. Longevity/Performance is 9 out of 10, lasted on my skin as a skin scent around 10-12+ hrs and my overall score is still the same 8.25 out of 10. It will be in my rotation for spring/summer and is a must a have.

Man(s), what a mess
From Gianfranco Ferré I still know the Pontaccio 21 well, a really successful citrus-fresh spicy men's fragrance with a pronounced Neroli content. For several summer days I wish for the most eagerly back. Others may still know the Gianfranco Ferré for Man - also very spicy ... and just "wonderful"!

Accordingly, I had some expectations of this rather young offshoot. A friend gave me a sample, otherwise I would never have noticed L´Uomo. At least I couldn't find him in the perfumeries. This is probably due to the fact that it was either re-camped or not imported into Germany at all.

After all, it belongs to the kind of fragrances that initially offer synthetic sweetness (somehow a mixture of cheap fruits and even cheaper almonds garnished with strange spices) and then make an exhausting and unnecessary twist into the salty-sweet. All in all, more uncomfortable than anything. You do wonder what this is all about. With a little imagination you can locate some of the ingredients listed - the rest was probably a wish of the manufacturer.

I'm going to stop here very quickly, because I don't want to waste anyone's life with this comment, it wouldn't be worth it to write, to read or to write. Just a pity for the heritage of this wonderful brand.

Fruit gossip with sauce - Shameless sell-out of a formerly large perfume house
With the name "Gianfranco Ferre" I had to test this of course. The classic "for Men" is a soft and spicy leathery macho charmbolzen. The spray head of the new machine was operated with correspondingly high expectations. ... and immediately the disillusionment followed. My ass, even this label is now jumping on the Gummi Bear fruit punch train. Fruit from the chemistry kit, later rubber is added. No, it's not fruit jelly. It's more like car tire jelly. Terrible brew and really something to be ashamed of. Putting this out under such a big name is embarrassing, I hear. The "scent" really has nothing of its own. Nada. Niente. Nothing. Chemistry lab sends its regards. Monotonous sugar paste from the perfume new time, as it many arbitrary manufacturers accomplish nowadays. Sillage and shelf life? I don't care, I don't want to walk around with it. Probably somewhere in midfield. Fragrance pyramid? That's a good joke. Why would you sell off a former big name for something like that? It is and remains a mystery...
