Valentino Uomo Born In Roma Eau de Toilette review

Valentino fans and woody-scent fanatics, I have some good news: Uomo Born in Roma Eau de Toilette is here to excite the senses with an unexpected marriage of masculinity and elegance for a modern edge. A long-lasting Eau de Toilette with a cool blend of violet, clary sage and woody tones for a smooth, light finish.

Read on to find out all about the Uomo Born in Roma and the inspiration behind this woody fragrance for men…


This Fragrance Smells Like…

This composition of contrasting scents portray the comparison of old and new architecture in Valentino’s home city of Rome. Master perfumers Antoine Maisondieu and Guillaume Flavigny have perfectly intertwined couture elegance with the edgy modernity of Rome’s street culture for a sophisticated essence that is still cool and radiant.

This Eau de Toilette opens with a Citron sharpness that cuts through an aromatic sophistication of Violet Leaves and Ginger before mellowing into a soft, savoury heart of clary sage and mineral salt that is uplifted by an energising peppermint note. Finally, sensual and earthy undertones of leather, vetiver and guaiac wood creates a smooth masculine base for this powerful, summer composition.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Uomo Born in Roma celebrates where you have come from and where you want to go with its contrast of traditional features and modern touches. A celebration of Rome this Eau de Toilette is a statement of your heritage, personality and your rules. Inspired by Valentino’s couture designs, the iconic stud is a symbol of strength that is carried through to this fragrance.


You Will Love This If…

If you’re a fan of Valentino fragrances, you’ll want to try Uomo Born in Roma; it’s the perfect summer addition to the collection. If you’re a woody-scent fan and you’re looking for something inoffensive for daily wear, this Eau de Toilette is ideal!


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

Uomo Born in Roma smells very similar to Paco Rabbane’s Invictus, however it is a slightly lighter and smoother version of the fragrance. This scent reminds me of the evening after a tropical storm, aquatic, green with an aromatic warmth that creates a darker fragrance.


Is Uomo Born in Roma Unisex?

This fragrance is marketed toward men due to its sensual, leathery base but we encourage you to wear whatever fragrance you like; if you’re into energising scents with a blend of woody, green notes, you’ll love this


What’s The Longevity Like?

For an Eau de Toilette, this scent had an impressive longevity! I could smell it for hours after only one spritz of fragrance.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

Any Valentino fans will instantly recognise this glass bottle, which is adorned with an armour of iconic studs. Celebrating a rebellious new era of fashion as well as traditional Roman architecture this bottle has a uniquely gothic feel. This blacked out bottle design and studded collar creates a feeling of deep, sensuality that leans toward an animalistic masculinity.
