In search of the solar chord
Today I wore the beautiful Moschino Uomo? again. It fits very well to the still persistent mild weather. I would like to put him in the rather milder season, for cold days he may seem too quiet and discreet.
But at temperatures over 18 degrees it does really well.
What's in there? What does the fragrance pyramid tell us? Can you trust?
Yeah, I'm of the opinion, by and large, it is. At the beginning there is a nice fresh citrus note with floral hints. Kumquat, I know them. The little oval orange ones you can eat whole. Okay, there's nothing left over from peeling. They are sour, but very aromatic.
I've cooked jam from that too.
Not very often used in fragrances, but makes a good impression. Citrus fragrances always create a cheerful atmosphere. I can confirm that here, Uomo? is a cheerful scent. Hedion is also known to me, gives scents a jasmine note. Yes, it gets a little flowery too, also with a cheerful, friendly basic tone.
Within a short time it becomes a little spicier with woody hints, whereby it becomes already difficult to sniff out individual notes, all this is very fine and used sparingly. But this is absolutely no problem for me, as the fragrance should retain its fresh, cheerful character. A little musk can still be seen.
And now we have arrived at the title of my comment. In the base note, a "solar chord" is said to have been incorporated. There's an oversized question mark over my head now. What do you want me to think? Where is he? How's that supposed to smell?
Does the bottle have a solar drive and sprays automatically when opened when sunlight falls on it?
Has the test tube been treated with the raw materials under UV light so that the scent changes in a certain direction?
Does the fragrance glow in the dark after being stored in daylight?
Or do you glow even in the dark after use?
Should it not be used in direct sunlight, because it might smell burnt?
Or do you get sunburn from spraying on? Or does it protect against?
Does sunlight have any odour of its own?
Can the bottle be used to generate electricity? Or the scent?
Hmmmm, I don't know.... Maybe the perfumer didn't know for sure himself.
Maybe that's the meaning of the question mark behind Uomo.
But that doesn't change the fact that I like the fragrance very much and I can recommend it without further ado. Uomo? is suitable for the office, because it doesn't pull an overhanging veil of scent behind it, as an uncomplicated leisure scent it is also wonderful. In the evening he may sink a little, there he could give away too little.
As far as durability is concerned, unfortunately he does not have such good stamina. After about 4 hours the solar chord (and everything else) is gone. And it also becomes quite body-hugging within half an hour.
I took the bottle with me to work for spraying, which I didn't find too tragic, as the flow is quite linear and the fragrance is extremely inexpensive. 125 ml is often available for less than 20 Euro.
I had it in the 90s already once, then it seemed to me stronger and longer lasting. But what has not been revised and improved recently?
Nevertheless I am happy that I have Uomo? in my collection again and on warmer days he can be used with pleasure. Even if it doesn't glow in the dark ;-)
I also make a recommendation for ladies, because the fruity floral with light woody echoes is something for you without further ado and I can imagine that Uomo? also smells very nice in ladies.
So and now I will continue to rack my brains over the solar chord... I'm still looking at the bottle in the dark....
