    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.

    Ungaro II and vintage Ungaro Homme III

    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.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    "Flayed strips of sodden mossy bark, dark purple twig-rich earth, and the last breath of flowers held in the huge hands of slowly moldering, motley-colored, waxy autumnal leaves, and in that forest, everywhere, one senses the reverberation of a cool, detached, and moist metallic patchouli echo returning through the trees. The color of the bottle, a deep rich, vibrant brownish red. The fragrance, a nonpareil."

    Ungaro 1

    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?

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

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

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

    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.
    In my swap list: Gucci Pour Homme (2003) BNIB.
    I'm looking for Reflection Man or Andy Warhol (silver bottle w/Andy's face)

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

    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.
