I first discovered Valentino Uomo in Wired magazine earlier this year and it subsequently became my favourite fragrance. That is, until I discovered the limited edition Valentino Uomo Edition Noire. The bottle design is a distinctive, contemporary update containing the fragrance developed by Olivier Polge, the perfumer behind Christian Dior Homme and Diesel’s Only the Brave, among many others. However, the bottle is completely blacked out – so I had no idea when it would run out. Which it just did. Completely out. How often does that happen?
