I had high expectations
I really like 90's and fragrances of that time and the 80's fragrances too...it seems world had more spirit back then and things where more simplified then today.
I nearly broke my feet few hours ago and here I am resting it and checking how swollen it is. In this pathetic moment of my life I remembered this fragrance. I really had big expectations sort of say, well after watching Scent Land review it I thought to myself I should own this. So I got it and I decided to wait for warmer weather.
At first it's really bad I wondered what's next. Then it becomes nice for a short while then... nothing.
Tortured by physical pain in my leg I remembered the disappointment in a whole when I sprayed 3 times on my neck and 1 time on each inner elbow area thinking that few sprays before where too little to enjoy this fragrance. Well yes at first I dislike it big time, smells very oldtimerish and after some time it (for a short while) comes to life reminding me of smells like CK One, soapy summer scents of the 90's the light bringers I like to say, scents that keeps you in positive mood and touch you the way the warm Mediterranean weather and sun touches you. And surprise surprise boom it all goes away. To be honest I can feel it even few hours later in some random eruptions here and there, but in the meantime - nothing. Maybe it's me, maybe my nose gets used to this smell so I don't smell it anymore, but that's just probably wishful thinking where me try to defend image of this 90's scent - for some reason.
Maybe my poor bottle went bad, but it reminds me of western movies when you would go into the Saloon to have a drink after long time ride and the bartender gives you some watered down poison not even bothering to spice it up with gun powder and red peppers. This is how I feel about Sergio's Uomo, like someone took 30% of original EDT that was good as people say it was then they added 50% water and 20% of cheap vodka.
Gave it to my father. Every time he uses it I notice it, very fresh smell in the air fills the room, but not in a aggressive way. He likes fragrances you wear and other notice, he says he likes it. So on my skin it's not that good, but it is very pleasant on other people. I was surprised when entering a room I smelled that fresh smell. Crazy...
