Reviews and Problems with Ungaro Apparition Homme Cobalt
Showing 1-10 of 17

Summary: This fragrance, while not being an infamous or particularly mediocre creation , exudes lack of complexity or better absence of real distinction in a way it pales in comparison with its great predecessors, in particular Ungaro l and Ungaro lll. I find it youthful and sparkling in a way it reminds me a bit the taste of some vermouths or some italian light liquors.
Summary: Thought this was going to be a good one after the huge dose of mandarin orange and all the interesting notes in this. Unfortunately none of the other notes show up and basically what your left with is an extremely boring skin scent that lasts for a couple of hours.
Summary: It's almost as if evil little razorblades with fly's wings are invading my nostrils and scraping the inside of my nose. Awful to the point of being painful. You can emulate the smell of Apparition Homme by dousing your body in the cleaning fluids you'd find in the cabinet under the sink. Simply putrid.
Summary: Somewhat dissapointed with this fragrance, I expected a lot more from Ungaro and Polge. Not a bad fragrance but less than expected. It is fresh but doesn't qualify as aquatic either, the opening is very fruity with the tart rhubarb and mandarin but soon the anise takes command with the peppery background to end in a somewhat pleasant vetiver note.
Summary: I get a sweet and soapy pear/papaya opening. Very synthetic too; the opening is decent but once it fades a little it starts to get more chemical in smell.. the result being something that smells like glue for about 25 minutes before the base notes kick in. For me, I picked up on the base notes about 25-30 minutes after having this on my skin.. at which point, I picked up on the woods and vetiver. While at the same time, the base still smells soapy as well.
Summary: This is the only Ungaro I've ever smelled. The only reason I own this, is name recognition upon seeing it for $10 at T.J.Maxx. It's overly sweet (like something from DIESEL), berry-like, and prominently showcases black licorice. Each one of the previously mentioned attributes creates for a mediocre (at best) recipe. My ex claimed to love this on me (the six times I actually wore it). I never told her what it was (in fear of her buying me more).
Summary: This is a review for the INTENSE version, also by Polge and released in 2007. It's a little more "oriental" than the original, playing up a little more vanilla/amber instead of the fresher, crisper notes. Nevertheless, this doesn't make it any less generic and ho-hum than the other reviews of the original. It's not a BAD fragrance, by any means, it's just not something that sticks out on one's shelf or to one's nose.
Summary: Compared to Ungaro's previous trilogy, this is a pale, really pale launch. After those marvellous creations, this casual, light and refreshing scent will shock a lot of people. It's simple in its composition: basically green tea and pepper. The combination of these two notes produces something like ginger, just a bit less spicy and somewhat reminded me of CK Euphoria, just better.
Summary: This is a darker take on a rhubarb top note. Not heart notes and a very thin anise/licorice accord at the base. Too biting be romantic, too dark to be casual and too cloying to be good for office wear. I don't know where I'd wear this. I like the scent but it's confusing.
