Diva by Emanuel Ungaro Review
The vintage perfumista would have a blast with Diva. This is one of the few fragrances to live up to the name as it is sophisticated, classy and complex all at the same time, and is probably representative of the glamour-loving ‘80s. The powerful scent knows balance, as the spicy intro develops into something softer and powdery. It is heavy but not cloying, as opposed to what some may expect from a fragrance coming from this era. Diva ends with a sensuous combination of iris, vanilla and sandalwood. It is hard to single out the notes of such a complicated scent, but they are well-blended and contribute to that unforgettable feminine smell.
Chypre scent, strong but refined personality
Lasts hours on skin and clothes
Elegant, ideal for formal occasions
Vintage, not for everyone
Emanuel Ungaro’s retro Diva is actually its very first fragrance, but the house did it right, making it memorable to many women who had a whiff when it was released. Its legacy is owed to Jacques Polge who, until 2015, was head perfumer at Chanel. Ungaro’s love for women and the female form manifests both in the scent, which is based on the rose, and the bottle, which takes inspiration in womanly curves.
