Inspired by the recent vogue for fruity gourmand male fragrances, Ultra Male shares certain characteristics with other contemporaries such as Viktor & Rolf’s Spice Bomb. Embracing a plethora of aromatic, lavender and amber notes, it’s a modern take on the Amber Oriental Fougère family.
Opening with a sharp bergamot burst, the first volatile citrus notes burn away to reveal its fruity character. Appetising notes of vivid pear waken the senses over a backdrop of warmly aromatic lavender and fresh mint.
- Clary Sage
Through a seamless transition, we discover the spicily aromatic heart comprising of sage, cinnamon and cumin. The warm interlude slowly evaporates to reveal the mouthwatering and sweet gourmand notes of vanilla.
The vanilla’s sensual embrace endures as the base emerges with a resinous blend of cedarwood and sweet earthy patchouli. Particularly seductive notes of labdanum interact with the vanilla to create an overtly amber accord. With the pear, this is one of the most characteristic notes of JPG’s Ultra Male, which is warm, intoxicating and particularly addictive.
