    Default UNGARO pour Homme, I, II, III, what do you prefer personally?

    ....and why?

    Thanks for the poll! I like I and III but not II. Voted III and i have a vintage version of it and it's simply best smelling to my nose though I is good as well. In III i love this combination of kind of depressing and haunting but still beautiful and mysterious aura it creates - that's mentioned in so many reviews.

    Own all three original releases in large bottles and love all, but my preference is for Ungaro II

    Ungaro II myself.

    Something about that lovely fecal note (lol) and lemons.

    Ungaro II is terrifically animalic, but Ungaro I's bitter green wormwood honey patchouli is my favorite. And one of my all-time favs.

    vintage U III > U II > U I

    I didn't like Ungaro I. Very generic and forgetable to my nose.

    Now Ungaro II is something special. One of the most memorable openings for me. I get a lot of fresh citrus and don't get fecal from this. I can detect the fecal note in Jicky and Mouchoir de Monsieur and I love these two quite a bit too. I guess I am a fan of civet.


    Have not tried Ungaro III.

    I own all three but prefer the darkness and the wormwood/artemisia-driven power of Ungaro I.

    Never tried Ungaro I, but Ungaro III is my absolute preference, due to the dark, boozy male floral note, with some chypre and even powerhouse elements, followed by Ungaro II, a fragrance somehow in the same style, yet it's notes and their overall association being even more raw, basic, overwhelming and shamelessly direct (all this in a positive way), while retaining a certain powdery and slightly leathery suaveness.

    Haven't tried I, am so-so about III, but have multiple backups of II which I think of as a more synthetic smelling Jicky.

    UII > UI > UIII, imo

    I've heard great things about Ungaro I-II-III, maybe it's time I take the plunge. Are all 3 of these still available, and are the current formulations essentially the same as original?

    Number one. Not sure why Ungaro or anyone else would be bothered with the other two.

    III > I > II.

    Ungaro III is probably my favorite masculine rose.

    I'll admit, I find the fecal note of Ungaro II strangely compelling, but I can't imagine a time when I'd want to smell like that.

    I don't like dihydromyrcenol so Ungaro III is a no-go, and yes I've tried vintage

    Ohh, good that you mention that. I really don´t like that ingredient either.

    I have issues with longevity with III. I do like vintage UIII much better than the bugspray they are calling III now. I have actually never tried I or II, but given the longevity issues I have with III I'm in no hurry to spend big money to get my hands on I or II.

    Considering how long it's been since Ungaro I was readily available, I bet there are a lot of votes by people who have not smelled all three.

    I take it back.

    Ungaro I is amazing.

    Particularly like the tonka-tobacco accord.

    Now I shall have to try I and III. I liked ÍÎ so much after smelling a sample in a blind sniff that I bought myself a full bottle. It has to be good for me to do that.

    Ungaro III was totally uninteresting to me, a standard and a bit heavy handed masculine. Never smelled I.

    just make sure to do a little reading on BN about formulations and packaging. I believe there are at least 2-3 different versions between box and cap colors and the juice is quite different for each, especially with III.

    Plum Japonais, Italian Cypress,

    Lavender Palm, Arabian Wood, Champacca Absolute and AMBER ABSOLUTE, etc...


    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    I'm pretty sure I voted II back then and that hasn't changed.

    The growling lavender > The masculine rose > The indolic ripe fruit amalgam.

    Funny. The SO and I are binge-watching The Sapranos (again) and, after just now applying a bit, I can't help but think that UI and T would be a good match.

    Ungaro II, but then again, I'm very much civet kind of guy. It's one of the fragrances that must be applied very lightly. Heavier application seems to make it not only quantitatively but also qualitatively different.

    I think I love Ungaro II the best, but I also love U I and vintage U III. The current reformulation of U III is terrible.

    Vintage Ungaro III is a giant (I'm lucky to own a bottle- the last version is unfortunately less deep, more synthetic and watered down), but also the others are great, in particular I. UII is not properly my kind of scent but is so sensual and animalic.

    i'm guilty of blind buying all 3...and after trying them immediately bought backup bottles of all 3...
    1st place...Ungaro II...love civet..love citrus...perfect combo of the 2
    2nd place...Ungaro I....love that tangy wormwood added to a classical smelling scent
    3rd place...Ungaro III...it's OK, but there's lots of rose fragrances I like more...
