Pax Romana
In 70 B.C.Virgil was born in the Italian Lombard region. During his youth, he was educated in Greek and Roman literature. At that time, Rome was in crisis with several internal battles led by power-hungry nobles. Virgil hated established instability. The long period of war and turmoil affected all citizens, even their fellow peasants. Farms that were once places of prosperity have fallen into neglect and ruin. Virgil's poems captured the timeless tranquillity of country life that he desperately wanted to be reclaimed again. He always remained single and never intended to play a role in public life. However, his poetry earned him fame as well as the friendship of important politicians. His daily life was about to change.
On January 10, 49 BC Julius Caesar commanded his legion to cross the Rubicon River towards Rome. This manoeuvre was strictly prohibited by the rules of the Republic and was considered an act of insurrection. Júlio César then uttered the famous phrase “Alea Jacta Est” (“the lottery has been launched”) and the expression “crossing the Rubicon” went down in history as a needed, but risky and irreversible decision. Thus began a bloody civil war soon followed by the expansion quests of the empire. This period of violence and political turmoil lasted intermittently for another twenty years. By the time Julius Caesar was assassinated and Augustus came to power, Virgil had already become a confirmed member of the Roman elite.
Virgil was delighted that Augustus led the republic. Like many other Romans, he expected Augustus to rescue Rome from the chaos and ruin of previous decades. And he really did it. Virgil then began work on a new epic novel that would summarize his ideal organization for Roman society: The Aeneid.
This saga tells the story of an exiled Hellenic prince, who founded the first settlement in Italy after the Greeks' destruction of Troy in the 12th century BC. This literary work surpasses the virtues of the early days of Rome. It soon became a literary flagship, a national epic that honoured the emerging Latin civilization and prophesied the rise of the Roman Empire. The hero, Aeneas, deliberately embodied the Roman ideals of loyalty to the state, devotion to the family, and reverence for the gods. Virgil believed these virtues would help secure Rome's place in history. Virgil also wrote of Rome's destiny to impose peace and morality, the long-awaited "Pax Romana". The work reflected his own enthusiasm for the great new Rome promised by Augustus.

Laura Biagiotti was born in Rome in 1943, on the month of Augustus (August). She studied archaeology at Rome University but abandoned her academic career to focus on fashion design.
After knowing this perfume for 25 years now, Roma Uomo Eau de Toilette remains a remarkable scent among all perfumes I know. It is elegant and sophisticated, although gentle as well. It's not very adventurous. It's like the city of Rome itself. It is impressive and yet so friendly. It's the perfect perfume type for a gentle and romantic man, a seductive male but subtly and charmingly.
It starts with a fresh grapefruit opening note, mildly seasoned with fresh spices. The middle notes stand for dark green and woody nuances amidst sweet and vanillic florals. The base accentuates the vanillic and woody accords with strong notes of benzoin and sandalwood. There are also traces of balms that evoke the ambience of many old Roman monuments and churches.
I like the presentation very much. It recalls the image of a Roman temple. It matches perfectly the Roma Eau de Toilette that is shaped like an ancient column. I actually believe to exist some customers of both perfumes, that bought them just for their looks.

How do I rate this Italian scent full of charm?
___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
- Opening: 7.5 (Grapefruit citric with fresh spices, dark green accords and sweet florals)
- DryDown: 8.0 (Woody and vanillic, and just a bit balsamic)
- Longevity: 7.0 (3 sprays can last up to 6 hours)
- Sillage: 7.0 (up to 5 feet and 2 hours of projection with 3 sprays)
- Exclusivity: 8.5 (An unusual scent but presenting a similar vibe in common with the 2 years older Minotaure Eau de Toilette )
- Portability: 9.0 (you can use it in almost any kind of weather, especially during the day; it's just a bit less suited for warm weather)
- Versatility: 9.0 (You may use it almost everywhere. Avoid beach and Gym. A lot of women use it as well. It's quite unisex. It also suits a very wide range of ages)
- Praise: 7.0 (It will earn you some respect; exuberant cheers will be rare due to its softness)
- Quality: 8.0 (Quality ingredients, solid bottle, good atomizer)
- Presentation: 9.0 (Very elegant and evocative)
- Price: 8.5 (It has been available to me for €25 - 125ml, on a web retailer)
___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
Overall rating: 8.05 / 10.00
- between 7 and 8 = above average;
- between 8 and 9 = recommended;
- greater than 9 = don't miss it;

Opinion: An elegant and beautiful bottle filled with a charming mildly sweet oriental perfume. Test it as you may love it a lot. Its high versatility and usability may also convince you.

Easy but special fragrance
I got this in 2010 in Rome. Where the place I bought it was a common drugstore, and I didn't know the brand Biagiotti, so I've long considered this just a souvenir.

The first time I wore Roma Uomo was in autumn 2017. It was a bit too sweet for my taste, but it was clear that it wasn't at least a cheap scent. And the first day I wore it, I received quite a lot of praise. It was a special experience for me because almost no one praise the fragrance in my culture.

On my nose, Roma Uomo is a vanilla bomb combined with sandalwood. There's a benzoic scent added to it. Some rich floral scents like jasmine make it creamy. Sweet and resinous but not much powdery. Mandarin of the top notes remains long and turns into a sweet citrus cream aroma. It's not too heavy or light, so you can wear it all season. (It's very important what you can always wear the fragrance when evaluating that; otherwise that will never be a signature)

Some people think Roma Uomo is feminine or unisex. In fact, it's almost asexual, neither masculine nor feminine. Anyway I am comfortable and enjoyable every time I wear it. In my opinion, Roma Uomo is pretty good fragrance for both men and women in their late 20s and early 30s. If you are more interested in actually improving your skin odor than advertising trendy colognes by your body, try it!

And sorry for my bad english, too.

A beautiful unknown oriental
Roma Uomo I liked it, it is a warm and fresh perfume, strange at first, but of a fresh and radiant beauty, a captivating aroma that is able to make me smile when I wear it.

The output is strange, it is citrus and fresh but sweet and warm, an uncommon aroma, like a lemon dessert of those sugar-free light, which try to be sweet, but are more sour or bitter than anything else, because a similar thing. Then the benzoi is taking body next to the galbanum and the woody notes, and project the sensation of a resinous, semi-sweet, herbal and woody floral vanilla, a warm fragrance with balsamic and green nuances, precious. From here, the aroma is quite linear, except for the floral nuances that come and go, adding some dynamism to the aroma, otherwise, it remains without many changes.

The performance is moderate, of good longevity, about 5 or 6 hours, but with a moderate low wake, it is noticed, but it is very close to the skin. Its use could be more diurnal style and for cool and temperate climates, but since there is nothing written about it, it could also be a good option for the evenings.

Another masculine perfume from the hand of Annick Menardo that I like, every time I admire more this lady who creates dreams.

Sorry for my bad english.

Roma Uomo
This is a new "love" for me. Had I known how nice this fragrance really was, I would have tried it long ago. It's very different as far as men's scents go. Not heavy or macho or spicy, which is what you usually find in men's cologne. Instead, this one is fresh, creamy, smooth and sweet. The smell reminds me of an Orange Creamsicle! It really is a delicious fragrance. Some men may not want to smell like this. If you like the typical men's scent, you probably won't care for this one too much. I always look for something different and unique in each fragrance I try and this one passed with flying colours. Very pleasant and very special indeed!

A classic from the 90's. Completely unisex. Sweet and orangey. Mandarin, cedar and vanilla / benzoin. Decent but it never conviced me. 3/5
