Potential to become a "hidden gem"
Many years ago as a teenager I owned the Roberto Cavalli Just Cavalli for Him. At that time this was my favourite fragrance, when I had nothing to do with the perfume world. But even then I had the impression that Cavalli had the potential to create fragrances that could stand out from the crowd.
Last year I discovered Roberto Cavalli Uomo by chance at TKMaxx. Occasionally one has the luck to get some nice scents there. But Cavalli Uomo told me absolutely nothing and because I didn't want to risk a blind purchase despite the attractive price, I took a look at the fragrance pyramid here at Parfumo. Immediately I noticed "honey", which I really liked. So the whole thing with black violet had to be a dark, mystical and slightly sweet mixture, which could almost seem unisex. That's what convinced me.
Although I had no idea what I would get involved with the scent at first, I liked it very much from the beginning. In fact the fragrance is mostly sweet-floral but in a more masculine way. The black violet tends to make it an evening scent, although I also like to wear it during the day.
Interestingly enough, during testing, associations of Tom Ford's Black Orchid kept coming up in me. Also there are these dark floral tones, which however are much more complex in Tom Ford. However, I find Black Orchid more feminine compared to Cavalli Uomo.
But what is noticeable is that Cavalli Uomo has a really beautiful Sillage. Even if you apply a few sprays too much, and wrap yourself in the fragrance, so to speak, it is not aggressive. But you are still noticed from a distance. The floral character changes with time into a pleasant sweetness, so that the honey accompanies you constantly. However, the honey here is quite synthetic, but I would not deduct a point for it.
All in all a pleasant men's fragrance, which in my eyes is a little underestimated. If you are looking for something elegant for evenings on cool days in autumn or winter, you may well find it here.
