There Is More To This One Than Its First Impressions Indicate...
Venezia Uomo opens with a clean lemon and bergamot tandem before quickly adding relatively soft lavender to the mix. As the fragrance reaches its early heart phase the aromatic lavender takes over as the citrus dies, now joined by a tonka bean sweetened watery vibe with an underlying clay-like accord derived from just slightly indolic jasmine over a growing woody cedar rising from the base. As the fragrance enters the late dry-down, slightly sweet amber joins the now dominant woody cedar with subtle oakmoss support to round out the rest of the fragrance development. Projection is slightly above average, and longevity is also above average at 8-10 hours on skin.

Venezia Uomo is an interesting composition that on first sniff seems to be relatively benign, but on closer inspection is quite intriguing. It opens like so many others with the citrus, but then the fragrance uses its lavender and jasmine florals to create an overall watery vibe without being an actual aquatic. The cedar, which joins the lavender as dominant notes through most of the fragrance development is never too in your face, though always present and quite critical to the overall fragrance structure. I should also mention that while never overly sweet, Venezia Uomo definitely does have a sweet side primarily derived by its heavy use of tonka bean in its base. While I tend to dislike sweet notes in most fragrances I did not mind the sweetness here at all as it seems to balance the woody and floral notes nicely. Folks who absolutely can't stand any sweetness in their fragrances should most likely avoid this release as disappointment is bound to set-in. The bottom line is that while no masterpiece, Venezia Uomo is a very good 3.5 star out of 5 rated composition that reveals it has a lot more to it than initially presented, setting it apart from most releases you find nowadays. As it has been discontinued, Venezia Uomo is not inexpensive on the after-market at just over $90 a 125ml bottle, but that is about the same retail price you would pay for the latest mundane designer release, and this is anything but. Absolutely recommended.
