The (elderly) Italian Gentleman
There are scents that are unisex. And there are scents, they're not. VL uomo it is definitely not. That's how I want to smell, not like one of those pseudo-anywhere-between-men-and-woman things.

VL uomo is an uncompromising, but fine and elegant men's fragrance, perfect for everyday use, suitable for business wear as well as casual wear.

The start is super fresh, but quickly the harsh note I like so much becomes dominant. Woods and green mosses take over after about an hour until the end, the fruity note loses little by little until it has completely disappeared (and this is by no means meant negatively). Sillage and durability are still ok, in line with other fragrances in this price range. I can only understand the sauna infusion smell so insulted by some previous speakers to a very limited extent. Perhaps it is the green and fresh components that lead to such statements.

For me a great everyday fragrance, basically wearable all year round, but great at warmer temperatures. It's nice that there are fragrances from the last millennium that have made it into our time

An Exceptional Citrus Fougere
Uomo has long been a favorite of mine. I would describe it as a classic masculine citrus cologne with added depth and vibrancy via the use of bold spices and a warm, comfortable musk that sits in the base. The citrus notes are exceptionally crisp and natural, and open the fragrance on a lively, spirited note. However, there is much more to Uomo, as Villoresi has added a copious amount of aromatic spices to the mix, creating a robust herbal concoction marked by thyme, sage, lavender, and bay leaf. The spices combined in this mix works very well. They are never muddled. Each note stands on its own, yet as a whole they manage to avoid the "spice cabinet" trap by combining in an effortless harmony, creating a sum that is greater than its individual parts. Uomo is anchored in the base by a light, earthy vetiver and a sensual, masculine musk. The musk sits close to the skin and has a warm, soothing glow. I've been been quite enamored with Uomo for some time, and believe my continued interest in it a testament to its quality. I consider Uomo a more sophisticated alternative to Terre d'Hermes and a more interesting alternative to the many traditional citrus colognes that are out there which although nice, can seem redundant after a while. Uomo is very versatile, as it works great in the spring and summer due to the citrus notes, and well in the fall and winter due to the notes in the mid and base. Projection and longevity are about average.

Highly recommended.

Solid, but nothing outstanding!
A very nive fresh/spicy/flowery fragrance. On my skin the lemon, bay leaf, bergamot, pepper are the most dominant. I can smell vetiver, and some musk too. All this, with beautiful flowers in the background. A really fresh and rather masculine scent for every occasion. Unfortunately there are two negative things I need to mention. It sits close to the skin, and longevity could be better (on my skin). Anyways I can recommend this fragrance for those, who like Lorenzo Villoresi's other creations!

A Decent Italian Eau de Cologne...
Uomo is quite the herbal citrus scent. It is very different from most citrus type scents, as I find the herbs play much more of a role here and it really is not sweet at all. After the initial invigorating top notes dissipate, an earthy vetiver note shines through and mixes with the sage and other herbal blend. I think while LV has many scents I prefer to Uomo, it does stay very true to the line's Italian heritage. I think this one is not quite to my taste, but still a fine effort from LV that is worth a sample if you can find one. 3 stars out of 5.
