Review of Valentino Uomo Noir Absolu Eau de Parfum

Attention all Valentino Uomo fans, Valentino have listened to your requests and relaunched the iconic 2017 Valentino Uomo Noir Absolu Eau de Parfum in a new flacon for 2021. Haven’t tried it? You’re going to want to! The EDP is an enigmatic, masculine woody-oriental fragrance that leaves behind an impactful trail.

Read on to find out why Uomo Noir Absolu is in such high demand…


This Fragrance Smells Like…

Valentino’s Uomo Noir Absolu opens with warm, spicy notes of cardamom and fresh coriander, which are elevated by a stimulating Italian lemon accord that interjects an energetic feeling. But the heart is where things start to heat up, thanks to an aromatic blend of cumin, cinnamon and black pepper. The Eau de Parfum finishes with a collection of stereotypically masculine scents, including soft sandalwood, incense resin and smoked leather, mixed with a unique iris concrete accord and a vanilla-like tonka bean facet.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

A modern exploration of the richness of classic perfumery, Uomo Noir Absolu represents the mystery and strength of the Orient.


You Will Love This If…

If you’re a fan of the signature woody notes found throughout the Valentino Uomo collection, you’ll love the mysterious woodiness of Valentino Noir Absolu. Compared to the original Valentino Uomo, Noir Absolu showcases more heated and sultry notes as opposed to opulent florals, offering an aromatic warmth that’s perfect for cosy winter days or long summer nights.


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

To me, Valentino Uomo Noir Absolu has a similar warm-spiciness and soft sandalwood tone as Tom Ford Black Orchid. But Noir Absolu EDP moves away from the more gourmand facets and amplifies a suede-esque leathery finish.


What’s The Longevity Like?

Impressive! Valentino Uomo Noir lasted around five to six hours on my skin.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

High-end fashion lovers will instantly recognise the jet-black glass bottle as it’s adorned with the iconic Valentino stud, a signature of Valentino’s couture designs inspired by Roman architecture. The weighted glass bottle exudes luxury in an amplified design that displays gold touches and an opulent metal plaque. Plus, it’s super easy to transport with a reusable collar that prevents pesky leaks.
