McFit meets Nespresso in vegan
Since I like all Valentino Uomos well to super so far, I didn't hesitate long with the purchase at the airport before this year's summer vacation - too much worth mentioning and new competition was not to be found anyway. I was also curious about how they wanted to brighten up the coffee nougat DNA and make it fit for summer. That was a difficult task in my head. And I should be right. Although it has become anything but intolerable or shitty, it supports and refreshes me quite well on Crete at the pool bars and in the Samaria gorge, "Uomo Acqua" is no hit. If I turned back time and stood at the terminal again, I probably wouldn't even take it and would rather bet on other horses... but one by one.

"Uomo Acqua" is quite clearly one of the Uomo family, this becomes clear after only 10 minutes, when the original DNA peels out much too early and only slightly brightened. It's too lame or too fast, just as you want to see it. But even before that there is the first little disillusionment: to sniff out a tomato, no matter if red, green or purple, you need a long nose that pierces the spray spot, plus a rich imagination. These are the two biggest missed opportunities and criticisms. The rest is solid to fine - a powdery, transparent and somewhat synthetic vanilla iris that melts into a white nougat leather cream. Doesn't sound like summer, isn't midsummer either, but you can do it at 25 degrees. But there was much more in it and it is annoyingly played on safe.

Flacon: a good spray head, an overall stylish presentation. It should have been a little more blue or aquatic.
Sillage: not remarkable, but no total slackness.
Shelf life: unfortunately only 4 hours, including Greece bonus/deduction.

Conclusion: a diluted, sometimes even generic version of the original. Works better than expected, but not really well. I should have been even braver to get away from the father scent. And more tomato exposure. Unfortunately, unfortunately
