Valentino Uomo Acqua by Valentino, First launched in 2014, Velantino Uomo Acqua is an irresistible fresh, masculine citrus and herbal fragrance that skillfully balances green, floral and aqueous tones to produce a scent with a smooth finish and excellent longevity.
The top notes are unexpectedly sweet with sparkling and sour mandarin blended with the light wood and vegetal tones of almost-ripe tomato fruit, as well as a slight bitter hint of nightshade leaf. Savory and aromatic sage and bush sweet patchouli create a warm backdrop for the sour and sweet introduction. The classic oriental sandalwood finish smoothes out the green and aqua opening aromas, rounding off the tart and bitter notes with the grounding powder and earth tones of mature iris.
Uomo Acqua was created by the Italian designer Valentino Garavani. After displaying an early aptitude for haut couture, Garavani apprenticed under his aunt and a local house in Voghera before receiving a formal education in France at the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne and the Ecole de Beaux-Arts.
