Introducing U by Ungaro for Him and U by Ungaro Her Exclusively from Avon

What Happens Next is Up to U

Aug 1, 2008

No fashion house exudes the Parisian soul quite like Emanuel Ungaro.  For the contemporary woman and man, the designs are effortless and modern.  Now women and men worldwide can experience the fashion and style of Emmanuel Ungaro through a new fragrance with the debut of U by Ungaro for Her and U by Ungaro for Him, exclusively by Avon.

The intriguingly sensual style of Emanuel Ungaro is now infused into these two new scents from Avon.  U by Ungaro for Her and U by Ungaro for Him blend style, confidence and allure.

U by Ungaro for Her is the epitome of femininity. The U by Ungaro woman is self assured and naturally sensual.  The alluring scent is made up of fresh blossoming florals surrounded by sensual blonde woods. Top notes of Bergamot Blossom, Wet Freesia and Pepper Blossom mingle with mid notes of Acacia Aura, Living Lotus Flower and Osmanthus.  The drydown is an array of Oris, Creamy Sandalwood, and Clean Musk.

U by Ungaro for Him is a masculine scent as fresh as it is powerful. The U by Ungaro man is daring and confident with a cool sophistication. The fragrance blends an airy crispness that leads to a sophisticated blend of rich, textural woods. Top notes of Green Mandarin Leaf, Ruby Red Grapefruit and Pomegranate sweeten mid notes of Natural Immortale, Cardamom and Cedarleaf. The drydown is a mix of sensual Natural Vetiver, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Tonka Bean and Peru Balsam.

“Avon is excited to add a designer fragrance to the portfolio that conveys the mood of effortless sensuality”, states Katie Lucas, Director of Marketing, US Fragrance.  “The fragrances mirror Ungaro’s fashions – a modern approach to style.” 

To mirror the femininity of U for Ungaro for Her, the packaging is shaped as a soft pink hourglass.  The U for Ungaro woman is naturally sensual and sexy, but does not try to be seductive, her confidence stems from being herself and exercising her desires.

The packaging for U for Ungaro for Him is modern and sleek.  The strong rectangular shape paired with translucent glass inspires exploration into a man’s personal duality.

U by Ungaro for Her ($32.00, 1.7fl oz) and U by Ungaro for Him ($28.00, 2.5 fl oz) is available beginning August 2008 through over 650,000 AVON Representatives nationwide.  To find a Representative, call 1-800-FOR-AVON, or visit us online at
