Ferrari Uomo was one of my first ‘proper’ Ferrari fragrances with a 50ml purchased in 2017 and I remember first wearing it not long before Christmas while working nights in a shop. Having been very mainstream with fragrance at the time, I wasn’t sure what to make of it. Smelling it now takes me right to that time. I since managed to get a 100ml tester with no lid for a decent price, and popped a spare lid on from an empty bottle of Leather Essence.
Classed as a fresh leather, Ferrari Uomo has petrol vibes and has been described as a lighter version of Dior Farenheit. I love it, maybe more for sentimental reasons that anything, but also that it feels expensive. I’ve had compliments while wearing it, so that’s not a bad thing either.
I love the Ferrari line that comes in these bottles. I spent much of 2019 hunting for all of the different offerings, and they were a great introduction to a wide range of fragrance styles. They were going out of circulation at the time and you could pick up a bottle for between £15-25. I managed to collect nearly the whole range. Sadly, those glory days are gone, and what you can find online now is mostly listed as rare/discontinued and priced accordingly.
I can’t even remember the last time I wore this one, so happily pulling it out for an outing as scent of the day. Oh, and the perfumer who came up with this concoction – Alberto Morillas, who’s known for designing a couple of other well known designer fragrances 😉.
Have you tried Ferrari Uomo or other fragrances in the Ferrari Essence line? Let me know in the comments.
