Black Gold, Petroleum, Badass Leather
Ferrari Uomo is one of the most impressive cheap blind buys I have ever made. It is a floral leather scent that is a distant relative of Dior Fahrenheit. Anyway, if you like Ferrari Uomo, by all means, buy it. It's a pleasant scent that's truly exceptional value for money. Just do it with your eyes open.

The fragrance opens with Sicilian lemon, juniper berries, and Calabrian bergamot, all from the south of Italy. Although there are plenty of citrus notes, I can barely get them. I was pretty surprised not to smell any of the citrus notes throughout their lifespan on my skin. Aromatic Juniper definitely stands out, dominating the scene. From the very beginning, the fragrance is reminiscent of black gold, petroleum, and badass raw leather.

The heart introduces spicy nutmeg, and woody cedar notes. After the initial 5 minutes, the leather kicks in, grows, and that's when this is a beauty. The wood lingers around at the back, but the leather is prominent. When I say 'prominent,' I do not mean it in the wrong way. But you have to like the leather note in cologne, the rude one, to like this one. It is raw, wild, like a horse's saddle after a race. It is pretty animalistic but creamy and a touch sweet, perhaps both due to the tonka beans.

The base is off-dry patchouli, rich and dark, with sweet and ambery tonka that is quite pleasant if nothing special, but the long-lasting leathery middle dominates this scent.

The comparisons with Fahrenheit Eau de Toilette are reasonable but seem exaggerated. Ferrari Uomo lacks violet notes and has a more animalistic leather smell. In the heart, however, some faces are familiar to both.

Overall, Uomo is a sophisticated/classic fragrance best used for a fall romantic evening at a classy establishment or for a mature gentleman at work or leisure. It's amazing. Projections and longevity are moderate, but still suitable for a night out or an evening out.

I base the review and opinion on a bottle I have owned since August 2016.

Visiting the Pit Lane
I really would like to know who bought the licence to sell perfume under the name Ferrari. The perfumer is Alberto Morillas whose name also stands for a huge load of other mainstream fragrances, such as CK One, but also YSL's M7!

The fragrance starts quite intense with citric, fresh but also green notes – so, nothing special at first. But then it is getting interesting. Some light spices come into view, and also some floral notes – though they should not be in there according to the scent pyramid. Anyway, it reminds me a bit of the spicy-floral Insensé by Givenchy. Or does my nose betray me?

There is a relation to car races. Very weak, at first, but then stronger, there is something like a car tyre accord – about the style of rubber note that is so characteristic for the head of Bvlgari's Black. If this is the denoted leather note, then this is a very special kind of leather or suede. Together with the floral-spicy heart it forms the topic of this fragrance. Not the worst idea for a racing car perfume. In opposite to the Bvlgari fragrance, here the rubber-suede accord lasts considerably longer, although it is not that distinct.

Ferrari Uomo is quite balanced. On one side Ferrari Uomo borrows some elegance from classic lightly spiced gents' fragrances, on the other side, with its tar and rubber appeal there is a very visible link to the events in the racing stables during a Formula 1 race – what a beautiful contrast!

Generally, I find it a bit silly if people wear the clothes or buy other accessories of a sports club or brand. If I come across such a product as a fragrance, I do not expect much. However I was all the more pleased by the concept of this fragrance. And the quality is just okay – it is not too rough.

If you like the top note of Bvlgari Black, but feel sorry for its quick disappearance, then Ferrari Uomo might be the more sustainable alternative for you.

An excellent cheap leather fragrance. The comparison with Fahrenheit is overstated—no violet leaf or florals. But it is a bit dirty/earthy.

Good masculine scent, not too overpowering. Balanced well with the fruits to soften the leather and wood. Average performance, good price.

A cheaper and more woody alternative to Dior Fahrenheit. Less prominent gasoline note, so probably a little safer fro the office.

If fall were a scent it'd be Ferrari Uomo. It's like a leather saddle full of manly juniper and dirty patchouli. I'm so in love with it!
