The centennial of Trussardi House was celebrated in 2011 with 2 fragrance launches: Trussardi Donna and Trussardi Uomo. And, according to the description on the official website, “The new Trussardi Uomo perfume pays tribute to the most successful fragrance in the history of the brand. Trussardi Uumo is the quintessence of refined masculinity.”
Therefore, this woody fougere creation from perfumer Aurelian Guichard is trying to match the official statements, although, upon testing the both, I found out that Donna is more interesting and that Uomo is a nice scent, without being something extraordinary. Upon spraying Trussardi Uomo 2011 on my wrist, I was impressed by the strong citrus accords from the beginning: Amalfi lemon combined with bergamot. In this stage, there are also present galbanum and nutmeg. So, the first impression was good. Afterwards, in the middle development, the floral notes of violet, Clary sage and geranium were employed, but I felt that something was missing. The extreme dry down features ingredients such as leather, oakmoss and patchouli.
The perfume is OK, but it lacks character. Probably, the final result would have been better if they accentuated more the leather accords, found in the base notes. The bottle made from opaque black glass looks elegant; however the classy style is somehow diminished by the golden colored stopper and the rim with the same color. The packaging box has an exclusive air, given by the texture that looks as if it was leather.
Overall, Trussardi Uomo 2011 is a reasonable fragrance that bears the craftsmanship and tradition of Trussardi House and what’s important is that is better than the latest launches.
