Krizia Moods Uomo

Aldehyde, Bergamot, Cardamom, Coriander, Lavender, Lemon.
Carnation, Geranium, Ginger, Jasmine, Muguet, Pimento, Rose.
Amber, Cedar, Leather, Musk, Oakmoss, Patchouli, Tonka bean, Vanilla.

In spite of tobacco not being listed, Krizia Moods Uomo has an excellent, but sharp tobacco vibe running clean through it from the beginning.

There's a "cutting" quality to Moods Uomo as it exhibits jagged edges and it reminds me of something that's restless. The aldehyde opening is extremely lucid and immediately it is followed up by the carnation and geranium. This creates the grittiness.

The citrus is content to be an assistance accord here. The main characters in the first half of this play are the spicy floral notes. They really are of the rugged variety and can't imagine smelling this on the female persuasion. The only note tempering this down at all is the Lily of the Valley and even though it's acting as a restraint of sorts, it barely does the job.

The heart of Moods Uomo is very unique in that there's no mistaking this for any other fragrance. I could pick it out blindfolded and in a crowd. The inherent spiciness of carnation and geranium coupled with pimento and ginger make for a one-of-a-kind aroma.

As Moods Uomo finally relents and begins to dry down, a leathery, earthy wood accord assumes its rightful place. The wood is a resiny cedar oil and falls just short of becoming tenacious. The only transition I never seem to get is Moods evolving into something resembling oriental. Because the vanilla and tonka are never realized on my skin, Moods Uomo stays a "sharp" fragrance. Those two notes appearing would have done wonders for this scent and relaxed it a bit and made for a more comfortable wear.

Moods Uomo is still a very good and underrated masculine. I find it periodically wearisome and a bit tedious after a few hours due to how sharp it is. I don't reach for it often because of this and I wonder how this would react layered on top of a vanilla dominant lotion. I have to give Moods Uomo a thumbs up.......but with an asterisk.
