Ungaro Man is a masculine aromatic fougere fragrance from the French fashion designer Emanuel Ungaro. As a masculine counterpart of Ungaro 2007, this scent arrived on the market in 2008, reportedly aimed at a man with charisma and an authentic power of seduction.
I do not know about you, but I’m not a fan of Ungaro scents. Well, I kind of liked Apparition Homme, but when I analyze it retrospectively I realize that it was merely the type of perfume that is launched every year, hoping to boost sales of the cosmetic companies that are only looking for profits.
Therefore, long after its introduction, I decided to test Ungaro Man, to see if I emitted a wrong opinion or not. Built around a very limited number of ingredients, this fragrance has a well-behaved evolution, passing through the classic top, heart and base notes. The opening in Ungaro Man is a refreshing note of basil, which is followed quite shortly (approximately 15 minutes) by a heart soft and spicy heart. At this stage, the tobacco aroma is rendering a special atmosphere to the whole construction however I felt that it was a little too soon. In the dry down, there is only one ingredient employed: cedar, which brings a classic and warm note to the trail.
Ungaro Man comes in a bottle that was designed by Sylvie de France, responsible also for the very feminine form of the Ungaro 2007. The transparent glass exhibits a soft blue shade and some curves intended to match the image of its predecessor. The packaging box is dark and sports the names painted with the same shade as the bottle.
