Ungaro L'Homme ( Ungaro 1 )

Bergamot, Green notes, Lavender, Lemon, Petitgrain, Carnation, Geranium, Jasmin, Rose, Clary Sage, Moss, Amber, Musk and Tonka.

The first of the triumvirate to appear in 1991. May I say that if purgatory possessed a pleasant aroma, it would be fitting if it was Ungaro I wafting through its nefarious pathways and caverns.

L'Homme is a dark and mysterious masculine. It's unique as well since I've come across nothing that smells like it. On me, it conjures a sense of detachment. While that may sound strange, it's because it straddles the line between coldness and warmth. It also retains a slightly feral tone.

The opening of citric lavender and petitgrain is like no other in perfumery. Bold, but not loud and all the while possessing a thick, dark feel. It's one of the most unusual citrus accords I've smelled and it's terrific. This accord has longevity and remains through the wearing.

The floral heart is spicy and rugged. The rose is forefront and masterfully accentuated by sage, carnation and geranium. The base ever so slowly unfolds, revealing a mossy musk and resin. The heart accord continues even after the arrival of the base and gift the wearer with the black fragrance magic that is Ungaro 1.

If I have any gripe at all, it's that the longevity of Ungaro L'Homme could be better. I feel the need to reapply, via an atomizer, every 3 hours. Other than that, this is the best of the trilogy.

Two thumbs up from Aromi for Ungaro 1 and its very edgy machismo.
