Fabio is back for a fourth round of the Monday Mail, which makes him our best customer ever (here are links to his first, second and third posts). This time, he's particularly interested in rose, and more specifically, masculine roses. In the 90s, Fabio was a big fan of Ungaro III, which he calls a "dark, male, rotten rose". He'd love to find something similar, or any rose you think might fit the bill, but, he has not found "oud-ish" roses to his taste. He'd like a rose for a British gentleman.
Fabio is in his early 40s. He loves reading, playing tennis and travelling. His style is usually sophisticated/ bespoken, but more preppy during the weekends.
His current fragrance rotation includes Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa, Lalique Encre Noir, Guerlain L'Âme d'Un Héros, Guerlain Habit Rouge Dress Code (the only gourmand fragrance he likes), Christian Dior Aqua Fahrenheit, Terre d'Hermès and Gucci Pour Homme II.
Fabio tried L'Artisan Parfumeur Voleur de Roses, but it wasn't exactly what he was looking for, and he found the sillage too low. He can't remember what else he tried, but everything else was too oriental, or the rose was there but not the main/ prominent player, or it smelled too feminine.
What say you?
