Brake strips in vodka
Nowadays, an oud flanker is launched by every perfume as soon as it has only walked over the counter three times. Oud always goes. Apparently even years after the peak of the trend. But the fact that the people were more than supersaturated is shown by the silent response of this Ungaro derivative, which was released three years ago. I hadn't heard of him or seen him in the shop before, just a phantom. Until I found it on the net at a trashy price and simply pressed buy - because I appreciate anything but any original more and more over the years. How does the Oud-Spross?

Good, good, good. Yum. Usually. And there's the catch. Because "Ungaro Pour L'Homme III" with its alcoholic (vodka) masculinity is anything but normal, mainstream, irrelevant. This oudige offspring on the other hand radiates a certain boredom. Don't misunderstand, it's a tasty cocoa scent with an aluminium-like coating that doesn't really go with it, which can probably still be interpreted as the original DNA of the original (Rose+Vodka). But there's not much else. Who looks for an unsweet, dull Kakoduft - gladly strike! However, those who expected a Ungaro III or another innovative, unusual variation will be disappointed. It smells a bit like cocoa vodka - and if that suits you, you have to decide for yourself. I'd rather have one or the other. Like sharpened pencils in the chocolate museum, like Christmas at the Kremlin, like oud without eggs. Don't go together. Bites himself.

Flacon: mine has strange black mini dots on the gold... not too good quality of the coating. Otherwise good. Top spray head.
Sillage: rather skin tame
Shelf life: only after 7 hours does it evaporate

Conclusion: I like the original more - you don't have to squeeze in oud everywhere! Nevertheless: portable and safe, it is safe. Especially for Oud fans who really need to test everything Oudige.

A stunning unconventional Cocoa-Oud accord
Today I am wearing Ungaro III Oud, which is supposed to be a flanker of the Original Ungaro III with a bit of more sensuality and mystery, and it is all worth the blind buy! The scent follows the oriental woody-spicy oud trend, yet without the presence of the rose. The fact that it doesn't have any rose, even the slightest of rose, might be a plus in my opinion because you immediately move away from the oriental middle eastern vibe. Don't get me wrong, I love the blend of rose and oud, yet I think oud is very versatile and could deliver a new generation of scents when used in Mediterranean style scents. Seriously.

First impressions are mainly black leather, bitter cocoa, and a hint of balsamic woody-amber notes of oud in there, but little trace of the original version. The oud is barely present enough to really call this an oud fragrance if that is what you're looking for. However, the slightly burnt leather and bitter cocoa are nice to my nose.

Ungaro III Oud opens up very sharp, spicy, and crisp, with undertone of medicinal note, a kind of like cough syrup, probably that is the cardamom giving the sharpness on the opening. Besides, there is a bit of burnt leather as I mentioned, it is not disturbing but can only be noticed when smelled close on the skin. The same goes for pepper, it doesn't last very long but creates a "barbershop" vibe on the opening for few minutes.

Then the tart cocoa mixed with oud take the lead. This is all we can praise for! Clean oud, this time not dirty, opulent, or burnt. This smells fresh and cocoa is also not dark but very round, giving warmth to the scent. If you're anything like me, and you're a big fan of chocolate -believe it or not, some people aren't- you will be loving this stage, being this the most gourmand part of it.

For those who are in search for oud scents without a rose but more linear and fresh type, this is a must try. Longevity on my skin is moderate, whilst performance wise, it's not really a beast though I went light with the sprays. As I've already said, it compares quite differently to the original version, being something that would be more ideal for Autumn or better for Winter. They're different enough to warrant owning both if you happen to like oud-based cologne.
