Dark green herbs & spices...
This is a nice woody "chypre" style fragrance. I like it a lot! It has just enough spice and kick to keep it interesting and with character.

I want to say it's a "mossy" fragrance... but there's no oakmoss listed in the notes. Instead, there are a selection of many different dry green herbs and labdanum, which gives this a rustic, bitter and green feel. The real component that sets it apart is the orange note... and the orange here is paired up with the background bitter, moss-like herbs to give it an overall masculine feel.

This really is like Guerlain - Mitsouko but with an orange note. However Mistouko is sweeter overall. I also think this that Numero Uno is more bitter, and therefore more masculine. I would say this is Mitsouko but mixed with Terre d'Hermès. It has a rugged, "dirty" or "mossy" orange... amongst all the Mediterranean herbs and spices. I think it's a very good choice for men.

This is definitely one that more men should check out. The price (for a niche house) is not so high as other brands. It's a fragrance which evokes the masculine styles of the past (the fougères and mossy chypres of the past) but with a unique modern twist (the orange note). Very wearable. I would say try rather than buy before trying. Very nice though, worth a look.

Cool-Headed Chypre
Gorgeous soapy chypre. There is something striking and hugely appealing about the cool, soapy quality created by a woody bitter orange, camphorous herbs and violet in Numero Uno. The chypre base of moss and patchouli gives a damp underpinning, but it’s the particular floral/herbal accord that defines Numero Uno from start to finish. A first cousin to Chanel Pour Monsieur’s chypre on one side and Grey Flannel’s violet-orange fougère on the other.

Herbaceous masculine
Occasionally I tire of the mass of aquatics and citrus scents that I smell on the men around me. Discovering Numero Uno was a nice change, something unique and pleasing.

Numero Uno is quite herbaceous, but not in an overly green sense. It has this deliciously smooth and soothing blend of herbs, with the lavender in particular giving it that dreamy feel.

I bought a sample of this for my boyfriend to wear and I absolutely adored it. I liked it not because it was sexy, or because it was particularly bold, I found myself attracted to its friendliness. It made him smell so approachable and cuddly. It actually makes a wonderful bed-time scent.

Some might say that this is a fragrance for older men, but I disagree. I also think despite its rather masculine scent, a woman could also wear this. The subtle, powdery violet in the heart makes it a tad unisex.

Sharp notes of orange only feature for a few seconds in the opening. I get a lot of rosemary, lavender, patchouli, violet, musk and myrrh in this fragrance. The eucalyptus note is there, but I can't guarantee that you'll smell like the Australian bushland with this fragrance, although it does have a rugged feel to it.

The longevity is wonderful, however the sillage is rather soft, hence the reason why I find this a pleasing bed-time scent. Numero Uno is not for everyone but it's worth a try.
