    From my sample of this, I was completely overwhelmed by this fragrance, not in a good way.

    Perhaps if the top notes had been a little less sharp, I might've stuck along for the wild ride. But I distinctly remember the burning sensation I experienced from JLV. A virtual kaleidescope of notes, all crammed into one bottle. Wild...but, ultimately not for me.

    Thanks.
    Bigsly, they both have an animalic character but that's where the similarity ends. Ungaro ll to me smells like an overripe orange.
    Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??

    I liked it at first, but then the animalic notes became a bit nauseating over time, and it's so strong for the first hour or so that I have trouble smelling anything once that opening subsides.

    Dimitrios is right! I've been slowly going through the "cheapos," trying to find the needles in the haystacks. Vermeil isn't for me (at least not now), but it is incredible for the price.
