beautifull yet non easy to find
The first Ungaro for men is a fougere as beautiful as, in some ways, sui generis. All in all, the pyramid is canonical for the category, in the sense that the fundamental notes are there but are then flanked by further elements that give it a particular connotation. What am I referring to? to the dark and enveloping character that makes this perfume very special. In fact, although it is a fougere it is not absolutely fresh or suitable for the morning, but it has a character that I would dare to define as "warm" in a broad sense, which is instead suitable for the evening, thanks to the presence of elements such as sandalwood, tonka, amber and honey making it a perfume that seems seductive and bewitching to me. I would like to clarify, however, that it is not a cloying or particularly sweet perfume, on the contrary... let's say that all these elements combine to give it an enveloping and soft nuance (to make a comparison, tom ford beau de jour is to my nose much more sweet and vanilla. . In any case, as a good fougere, it always remains aromatic thanks to the male flowers par excellence such as lavender and geranium which in turn are enhanced by the green and aromatic notes. The performances are appropriate to the genre, since it is a classic men's perfume it is not shouty or loud but gentle even if clearly present, never intrusive or imposing, it allows itself to be perceived by those who approach it appropriately. The duration is good, I would say between 5 and 7 hours on skin. As for the author of this beautiful perfume, it is appropriate to mention the name of Jacque Polge, in fact it seems that at the time the Ungaro maison did not have a "perfume" department or in any case the possibility of creating a new fragrance so it decided to "outsource" the you work at Chanel (which is synonymous with Polge, in fact); and it seems that it was the legendary (ehh yes, legendary...) Jacque Polge who created the 3 Ungaro men's shoes (perhaps together with Demachy, but there is no certainty about this). Definitely? beautiful and particular, for me and it seems for almost all lovers of the genre the best of the trilogy and also the most sought after, absolutely a must have if you are a lover of the genre even if, unfortunately, today you have to spend a rather high sum to get a bottle of it well maintained.

Ungaro's Best...
Ungaro pour L'Homme I opens with a powerful nose tingling aromatic lavender and sharp bergamot citrus tandem with a bit of the coniferous green pine and bitter-green herbal wormwood from its middle showing early before it gradually transitions to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart, the bitter-green herbal wormwood (artemisia) takes the fore in a big way, as earthy patchouli and pine provide first tier support, bolstered by slightly sweet sandalwood rising from the base. During the late dry-down the wormwood and other green aspects gradually recede and finally vacate, leaving the slightly sweet sandalwood to pair with supporting relatively dry amber and remnants of the earthy patchouli through the finish. Projection is very good, as is longevity at around 10-12 hours on skin.

Getting right to the point, Ungaro pour L'Homme I is superb smelling stuff. I usually don't care much for the smell of wormwood, and in most of its perfume implementation it can really come off as overpowering and off-putting like in the horrific smelling A Taste of Heaven (Hell, in actuality). Instead of *that* monstrosity, here the perfumer deftly combines it with just the right balance of supporting earthy patchouli and relatively smooth wood to balance its bitter-green aromatic herbal aspect. The late dry-down while much more behaved is no less enticing, as the sandalwood melds perfectly with the dry amber. The bottom line is Ungaro could have easily stopped at the sadly discontinued and hard to find $250 per 75 ml bottle on the aftermarket Ungaro pour L'Homme I, as decades later it remains a classic and the best thing the house ever released perfume-wise, earning it a "near masterpiece" rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 and a super-strong recommendation to vintage perfume lovers everywhere.

Lusty wine of underworld...
First of all, these aren't the real notes but don't worry, I have them :

Top notes: Lavender, Pine, Bergamot
Heart: Patchouli, Wormwood, Precious Wood, Jasmine, Geranium
Base: Sandalwood, Tonka, Honey, Amber

So, I don't wanna take your time reading this by breaking it into notes, but I want to tell you that this juice is the wine of underworld demons. If you want to feel how that party is going on down there, say no more, hunt a bottle and give it a deep sniff. The colour of the bottle now is spreading in your room and it makes you want more and more of that smell...that lusty smell.

Secondly, when are you going to wear it? At night, chilly outside, all alone and in time you will feel that Sucubus won't be late for your date because she can't wait to smell it!

In the end, you really need patience to hunt a REAL price as I did, 50ml with 50 EUR0 at an auction, that's a REAL DEAL. Trust me, in the end, you will have a big smile on your face with your horns straighten up.
