Emanuel Ungaro L’Homme

Fashion house Emanuel Ungaro introduces a new masculine fragrance L’Homme 2018 – the new flanker to the original L’Homme perfume. Emanuel Ungaro L’Homme is a stylish, sensual, and very masculine fragrance that denotes wealth and the self-confidence in man. It is a modern perfume, yet with a classic approach to make men look sensual and seductive.

Ungaro L’Homme is his fragrance, an original olfactive interpretation of ageless youth in which richness and sophistication find an appealing, innovative twist, combining elegance and sensuality with contemporary urban nuances.

I adore masculine fragrance that stands for a tobacco/wood aroma and yet maintains the classical beauty. Created by Véronique Nyberg and Alexis Grugeon, this perfume is a nice fragrance for daily use opening with fresh bergamot, spicy black pepper along with floral notes of iris, lavender, and sage. The woody base indulges with leather, cedar, and patchouli nicely sweetened with peach flavor. Emanuel Ungaro L’Homme is fire and ice on the other side due to a pleasant burst of woody/aromatic ingredients.

 

Emanuel-Ungaro-L'Homme-Flacon

The flacon of Ungaro L’Homme reflects the dialogue between rigour and freedom, classicism and modernity. The intensityof its matt sky blue flacon contrasts with the shiny silver label and cap, where embossed lettering adds a touch of refinement.

Emanuel Ungaro L’Homme is available as 50 and 100ml Eau de Toilette.

Fashion house Emanuel Ungaro launches a new perfume for diva women, La Diva Mon Amour. The new perfume La Diva Mon Amour got its inspiration from brand’s iconic and timeless Diva perfume launched in 1983. The new perfume ideally describes the Parisian daily style of a woody/aromatic perfume.

Emanuel Ungaro La Diva Mon Amour is a fruity/floral perfume made of fresh mandarin notes, raspberry, black currant along with floral accords of roses, freesia, and licorice. The base calms on a woody base made of musk, Tonka bean and Peru balm notes. Any woman will find this perfume romantic, elegant, and captivating the same as the lovely Paris city.

The Nose: Pascal Gaurin

Pascal Gaurin Nose

Pascal Gaurin was born circa 1970 in France. This French Perfumer works for IFF (International Flavors & Fragrances) as Senior Perfumer for the Fine Fragrances division (Click photo to enlarge).

Pascal had no objective reasons to become a perfumer, but chose it thanks to his gift. His fascination with scents was so great that as a child, he literally explored the world with his nose, causing his mother to wonder if he was afraid of being poisoned.

Pascal studied and graduated at ISIPCA in Versailles and a year after that he began to work in IFF, first in Hong Kong, where he enriched not only his olfactory palette, but also gained a deep understanding of the art, customs and olfactory preferences of people in Asia. Then, in 1997, Pascal was offered the chance to work in IFF, New York, the city of his dreams. The city where everything happens, and where all smells come together.

Most inspired by very dense essences, Pascal Gaurin is fond of resins, deep woods and anything that can express extreme sensuality. His taste for darkness probably originates from his grandparents’ home in Creuse, France. ‘The forests are very dark there, it always feels like it’s night time, you can feel the vapors of humus, mushrooms, leaves and bark. . . I love frontal materials, those you need to tame like sculptor does stone, by keeping the volume but making it flow’. This is where he gets his affinity for cistus, patchouli, Cashmeran and vanilla, ingredients he qualifies as erotic.”

IFF
