Odori Cuoio is an homage to a classic. Hermes’ Equipage.
Its quite soapy, spicy and clean.
Linear? Yes. Boring? No.
Its like taking a slab of brown rawhide leather before processing and rubbing the finest luxury soap lather all over it.
Its not a fragrance thats will change much throughout its life, but there are a few elements of it that make it complete.
Its not just a soapy brown leather per se.
It has a sparkle from the combination of warm ginger, smooth ylang-ylang and just a whiff of camphor from patchouli. Its these subtle nuances that keep this fragrance interesting from start to finish.
Its sillage is ghostly, and different enough to get comments asking what it is, because it smells unique.
It is, luckily Galardi shifted enough blocks on the wall to justify owning this and Equipage in the same cabinet.
Fairly sneaky with a couple of sprays, it lasts the perfect amount of time around 8-10 hours and projects confidence and class, but not too far.
Galardi continues his legacy as part time innovator, part time imitator.
Fortunately for Galardi, his skills as a perfumer allow him to recreate classics accurately but with an Italian twist.
Similar to fragrances like Hermes Equipage, Paco Rabanne Pour Homme and Farmacia SS Annunziata Cuoio Fiorentino, but Cuoio has its own character between the blocks of soap.
