Ungaro dresses are designed to magnify the woman and highlight her delicate curves in beautiful drapes. It goes without saying that the very first perfume composed for the couturier will have to be as luminous and glamorous as his silky dresses.
Diva will therefore be the perfume that exudes the Ungaro style of its fragrance in its precious draped bottle. and no one doubts that the Diva woman will be dressed in a perfume as precious as her dress. Especially when we know that it is the two masters of perfumery, Jacques Polge and François Demachy, who worked on the composition of the beautiful Diva of Ungaro.
Indeed, we know the two perfumers particularly well to be for one, Jacques Polge, official perfumer of the great house of Chanel, for the other, François Demachy, official perfumer still in post of the Dior house. But the two men also took part in other projects, in particular because the Ungaro perfumery was owned by the house of Chanel for a large number of years. Be that as it may, Diva d’Ungaro is one of the rare perfumes that can be proud of having been composed by these two absolute masters of modern perfumery. An exceptional quality that will make Diva a fragrance that will not only reign in its opulence over the 80s but also become a cult perfume of the time.
Diva, the scent of a pretty passionate and mysterious wild flower
When the names of Jacques Polge and François Demachy appear in the composition of a perfume, we already know that we are dealing with a perfume of character, original, very flowery and high quality raw materials.
Regarding the character of Diva, it is given first of all by the dynamism of its very citrus top notes, but also by its exotic heart with opulent flowers, including the majestic powerful and so mysterious tuberose. Of course, it will be the animal and honeyed depths that will envelop us in a unique wake, with a strong personality.
As for the flowers, great love of François Demachy, they will not be forgotten either in this magnificent Diva. On the other hand, they will be less bucolic than in the usual creations of the perfumer. In Diva, the flowers are spicy, aldehyde, sulfurous, captivating. The rose is dressed in its solar ylang-ylang outfit where the tuberose envelops it in a veil of deep mystery. p>
