I can now handle the powerful lavender blasts of fragrances like Ungaro I. Once the powerful opening subsides, I get a lot of sweetneess (not A*Men but more than I prefer these days). There is also clear patchouli, which lasts for hours. If you want a cheap version of this, try Enrico Sebastiano Fine Cologne, which I feel is cruder and the ingredient quality seems lower, as one might expect. As things continue, it's like a cross between ESFC and Giorgio of Beverly Hills for men (I've only tried the new versioin) U1 is richer to me in a certain way, which might be the wormwood note and/or the quality of ingredients. However, because it is a bit too sweet for me (sort of like a rum sweetness, as others have said), I don't think I need to seek it out (ESFC seems a little less sweet), unless I can find a bottle at a great price (unlikely). I can see the appeal of this one (nicely balanced too), but I think for me it would be worn every few months, at most, when I'm really in the mood for it.
