Incredibly smooth, animalic, old-style scent. If you like civet, this one is for you.

The second of the troika. Great fragrance. Somewhere between Chanel PMC and Jicky.
Dirty powdery floral. Quality stuff.
Has that Polge signature (you see it in Tiffany too). He may have a hand in it since Ungaro was owned by Chanel at the time of Ungaro II launch.

I bought this blind around 2010. Long discontinued, I was expecting something animalic and a “civet above the rest”. I can confirm that U2 is animalic and is a “civet about the rest”. I never understood the Guerlain Jicky connotations because I never smelled Jicky until after I received U2.

The opening is big lavender and light orange/neroli. The citrus notes get subdued by the lavender in a matter of minutes. I’m initially reminded of the lavender in Caron PuH. It’s that big and powerful but never overpowering. The civet creeps in like a cat to give U2 its claws. The civet is certainly animalic but it doesn’t ever veer too close to the wrong end of the cat, if you know what I mean. The proportion is just right.

With the civet and lavender still creeping around, vanilla comes in to lighten the load a touch. My only complaint is that the base is a bit weak and U2 doesn’t last beyond 4 hours. Maybe age has weakened the basenotes so I can give U2 some slack in this area. I would also add that U2 is very unisex and ladies who tire of Jicky may seek out U2 on the vintage market.

Dirty lavender. Ungaro II, Jicky, and Mouchoir de Monsieur are 3 peas in a pod. Good musky drydown you can smell the next morning, somehow remindful a good lavender-prominent was worn the day before. I use the after shave as well.

For reference, I'm 50+.

A 1992 Ambery Oriental that is literally the cat's ass. The use of civet in this particular masculine is about as artistically sexy as you will find anywhere in the designer realm.

The 2nd release of the infamous Ungaro triumvirate, Ungaro II is in stark contrast to Ungaro L'Homme released the year before. Even the colors used for both are completely appropriate.

The opening of Ungaro II is a citric blast with spice. Basil and coriander are integrated with bergamot and constitute an excellent accord. The top of the fragrance is memorable and distinct.

The civet only takes moments to assimilate into the progression. It's very sensual and so well implemented that I cannot help using it as a measuring stick when smelling other creations using the note. The neroli is also very well played and adds a hint of bitter and bite to a borderline sweet texture.

Carnation starts flexing its muscles after 5 minutes or so and begins to ruffle some feathers in an otherwise very smooth accord. The tuning of the floral heart is very commendable and from behind the carnation can be smelled hints of jasmin and pepper. The others add an anonymous "fullness" and they do it well.

In an hour or so, the drydown is realized. I find that Ungaro II has good longevity in its first two accords and enjoy the fact that what I smell the first few minutes lasts a great while on my skin. Once it subsides, a woody amber appears. The civet is still alive and kicking and invites a bit of leather to the party as well.

The extended drydown softens with the addition of vanilla and tonka. This scent is deceiving in the sense that it lasts longer than you think it does. Whether this is attributable to olfactory fatigue or simply morphing into a "close" fragrance after its first hour is an unknown quantity. It really doesn't matter either.

Good is good......and Ungaro II fits that bill perfectly. Big thumbs up from SS for the civet-fest from Ungaro.
