    Ungaro III by Ungaro

    Ungaro III

    Sometimes I just want a scent that does the simple things well. Sometimes I don't want to have to work to figure out what is in each phase because the notes that are being used are obvious. Sometimes I like to see when a perfumer has embellished earlier themes. Ungaro III is one of those scents for me it was co-created, in 1993, by Francois Demachy and Jacques Polge. It is a fairly common progression of citrus, patchouli/vetiver, wood. It feels like a thematic brother to Polge's 1989 creation Tiffany for Men. From the top it is a classic mix of orange and lemon, it is bright and fresh and everything a colognoisseur has come to expect from a citrus-forward opening. The heart is patchouli, at first, soon joined by the edginiess of vetiver. Once again no new ground broken here but balanced nicely and adding some depth to the citrus beginning. In the base sndalwood adds smoothness and creaminess to the proceedings, making for a traditional closing argument. Ungaro III is a classic masculine scent, made in a classic masculine style. Sometimes that is all one needs to head out into the world.
