A delicious perfume by Laura Biagiotti, Roma Uomo. It doesn't come cheap but I think it's worth it.
This eau de Toilette was designed by Laura Biagiotti, A very famous woman in the fragrance world,
but also in the fashion world. Her fashion house is actually one of the biggest in Italy. She came out
with this fragrance in 1994 and think it's a good balance between spicy and fruity. You can buy a
bottle of 40ml for 22 pounds.
I received this fragrance actually from my mother who thought it would be perfect for me. She
thought it was a warm but still a bit spicy scent. The smell is first a bit strong for very fruit like but
after a few minutes I think the sandalwood and patchouli come through which gives it a more subtle
scent. In the beginning you can really notice the grapefruit coming through and I'm normally not a
big fan a fruity fragrances. But like I said the scent settles down and it becomes softer and warmer. A
realy nice scent.
The bottle has a very Roman look, if you look closely at the bottle you see like the ripples in
the bottle which are like pillars, with a cap. The front features the name of the scent: Roma
Uomo and designer, Laura Biagiotti, The bottle itself is tinted glass. The cap is made of
plastic, but looks like wood. On the bottom is some of the most important information like
the content, that it is highly flammable. I think it's an oval bottle.
This Laura Biagiotti: Roma Uomo, Eau de Toilette really suprised me and is something i probably
wouldn't have picked out myself. This is mostly because of the heavy fruit scent in the beginning.
When it settles down it becomes such a nicer softer scent that I really appreciate. The smell last for a
good few hours so all in all a really good eau de toilette.
Now a lot of fragrance reviews taht are posted on this site go on about woodland scents and what ingrredients are in the actual scent itself.
When i go into my nearest department store, the thing i go for is the smell, irrespective of if it contains traces of nuts (i have a nut allergy) etc.
This eau de toilette is a very very fine fragrance. It is no longer available in the uk, some specialist sites have it and/or some listings i have seen on Ebay.
The smell of this eau de toilette is long lasting, is quite strong and the smell reminds me of my childhood as i get the waff of kola cubes when i put it on. Its not too overpowering like some scents and can be worn for all occasions so going out, to work etc is fine.
The price is also very competitive agianst many other top fragrances. O got the 125ml bottle, gift boxed with a 150ml shower gel and that set me back £27 from fragrance direct. They are superb if any of you have not been to there site. Great delivery, normally by DHL courier or similar so no threat of it been affrected by the cureent postal strikes.
For comparison, i dont know of or can't think of anything else which smells even distinctly similar.
So, as a conclusion, if you are looking for something a little different for that special somebody or even for yourself, then an investment in this product will not disappoint. I'd put money on that in the fact that if you buy it and dont like it i would buy it back off you!!!
And finally, having just asked the question to my lovely partner "what do you think of Roma"? her repsponse, although very simple, was "nice"
There you have it. An awesome fragrance by a top fashion house and a decent price.
Roma Uomo is inspired by the creation and release of energy, the fragrance opens up a freshness that contains a blend of grapefruit, rosewood, clove and is accented with ginger, patchouli and sandalwood.
