The Baron de Charlus once told me: "My undisputed favourite from the House of Ungaro, Ungaro II never fails to conjure a painting by Watteau: an aristocratic whirl of dancers in a lush and leafy glade, more than a little decadent and effete. Having obviously learned some of its dance steps from Jicky and Mouchoir de Monsieur, the secret with Ungaro II, if one is not to be overwhelmed by civet, is to apply it very lightly, very slightly. Then it can be a thing of glory: sweet lavender and lemon melting into a warm and golden glow. But apply too much and it becomes oversweet and sickly. Less medieval and strange than Ungaro I, Ungaro II is also far superior to the rather ordinary fruits of Ungaro III."
