Black: the most colourful of non-colours. A deliberate, powerful, absolute refusal of any hue, favoured by artist and creators across time because of its strength, mystery and spell. The Valentino Uomo bottle turns into a tactile totem in this new edition: a velvety prism that catches shadows with uttermost subtleness, delineating a clear, powerful figure, topped off by the black mark of a pure ring. The bottle is now a magnet: it attracts and intrigues with its spiky mystery and dangerously sensual elegance.Inside this opaque shrine, Valentino Uomo Edition Noire offers to rediscover the fragrance created by Olivier Polge, made of charming accords mixed into a singular aura and effortlessly swinging between tradition and modernity. Enveloped by the limpid elegance of zesty bergamot and a surprising hint of spice and barely there myrtle, it opens with racy notes of coffee and the shimmering tones of gianduja cream, in a memorable enticing duo. It is retained by a pervasive musky hint of white leather that reveals the majesty of cedar. A classic accord, softly smoky woody, with a touch of vagueness that upsets the balance, it is an expression of unmistakable style. That of a man whose apparent complexity is nothing more than the expression of sophistication, as secret as it is intense. A deep and fascinating beauty.
