Having owned the original and sample worn the re-release, I admit that the original was the best. Actually, I have sampled a "few" of the reformulations and they differ slightly to one another, yet they are still a worthy purchase.
The lavender in the top accord is interesting and at odds with the spicy citrus, yet they fulfill the saying that opposites attract. Rosewood is present from the very beginning and teams up with the floral heart. These players make for an enjoyable 10 minutes or so before order is restored.
The rose note in Ungaro III is very dense and moist. I don't find it a conventional version at all, but I have always liked it and still do. It's as if it's a hybrid that's been bred for masculinity. The fresh quality is inexplicably still present, but has shrunk toward the back of the pack by this time.
Sillage is very respectable and longevity is better than average. No doubt Ungaro III gets a thumbs up in spite of me becoming melancholy over the fact that this one will never return.
