Emmanuel Ungaro U Eau de Parfum
Advantages: Pleasant refreshing perfume - pick up a bargain on Ebay!
Disadvantages: Full price is expensive - now being discontinued.
---Why I Bought This---
I tend to have a lot of Avon products and I know one lady in the village who will wear nothing bar this fragrance. I had also tried the small tester bottles and found them very pleasant - so then thought I would go for the full bottle.
U for Ungaro was launched in 2008 in collaboration between Avon and Emanuel Ungaro. Reese Witherspoon was used for the promotions.
Avon promoted this as an 'alluring scent made up of fresh blossoming florals surrounded by sensual blonde woods'.
'Top Notes: Bergamot, wet freesia and pepper blossom.
Middle Notes: Acacia, lotus flower and osmanthus.
Base Notes: Orris, creamy sandalwood and sensual musk.'
The perfume comes in a pink metallic cardboard box which is embossed with a pattern of 'u's.
Said to be 'effortlessly chic, intrigingly sensual. Fresh blossoming florals surrounded by sensual blonde wood'
50 ml spray bottle.
Contains alcohol and is made in Poland.
Box sealed in clear sellophane wrap.
Inside of the box is white with design of pink 'u's - there is also an inner lining of pink card.
The bottle is clear glass to reveal the pale pink perfume.
The aerosole section is silver colour and the cap is thick good quality clear plastic embossed with a 'u'.
Down the back of the bottle is a line of pink 'u's.
The front of the bottle is emblazoned with 'U by Ungaro' in silver.
The bottle is narrower at the centre.
---Price & Availability---
£12 - but now being sold off to representatives at Avon as it is discontinued - the full price I believe was £20-22.
Can still be bought for under £15 on Ebay as can the small sample bottles which are great for carrying in your handbag.
To begin with this perfume gives the impression of being expensive - it comes wrapped in cellophane and the box is good quality cardboard and nicely designed.
The inner sleeve of pink card is very pretty and bottle's slimline shape is trendy.
the narrower 'waist' to the bottle makes it very easy to pick up and grip and the clear plastic lid is good and strong and expensive feeling (as opposed to some other Avon fragrances I have reviewed!).
Now to the perfume itself - I tend to just put on two squirts - one on each wrist - these tend to last around 10 hours which is great - I would probably re-apply if I was going out somewhere in the evening.
This is a light type of fragrance and not at all heavy or cloying.
It is refreshing and slightly floral - without being too flowery. It is a great all day and evening perfume and is not overpowering, but the fragrance does last very well.
It is said to contain musk but I do not really notice that part at all.
I do not think this isi a fragrance that anyone would actually dislike -and it has a good band of followers on the internet who rave over it.
Being so light and delicate I think it would suit most ages - but is not too frumpy for the younger generation.
All in all a pleasant frarance that I enjoy wearing - but I would not think it was worth the full price and it would not really be one of my all time favourites.
3 stars - Quite nice perfume but not worth the full price.
---Would I Recommend?---
Yes - but only at reduced prices.
Summary: Pleasant refreshing perfume - pick up a bargain on Ebay!
