Summary: This flanker of Azzaro Pour Homme is really a summer flanker: works great with temperatures over 30 celsius. The cumin note is strong enough to be noticed by anyone, but it doesnt takes out the freshness. Instead, gives it a good base. Despite this is a great summer option, i would stay with Azzaro L'Eau which is even fresher and works even better in hot temperatures maybe due to it's less dense composition.
Summary: I like this well enough and respect it for the classic it is. But I find it a bit linear. I'm still searching for the anise top-note, as on me I get much more of a lemony sandalwood musk, with a flash of patchouli, that doesn't seem to change or evolve during an entire day of wearing it. Now I love anise, but to my mind Brut is a far better example of a great anise scent.
Summary: Sweet, a bit cold in charachter, but masculine and nothing to do with the original. Its only potential fail would be the marketing or, to be precise lack thereof. If you're into Escada Magnetism for men, Roberto Cavalli Black or La Nuit de L'Homme or Feragammo F Black then this is your scent! I almost dare call it a "player". Very contemporary fragrance with no hint of clasicism of the original.
Summary: I absolutely love the note of Rhubarb, finding it bold and sexy with its exotic/aqueous slightly boody vibe, with its sparkling projection. The note of rhubarb (flanked by a notable lemon/orange support) imprints the main temperament to this new flanker so different ( less spicy/aromatic and sweeter) from the main notorious Pour Homme's formula.
Summary: An interesting relaunch of the great classic that now is equally dry (starring is the grapefrut/citrus/geranium accord), less spicy, more lemony (the yuzu is notable), less aromatic and with that final tart/watery modern approach that turns out slightly soapy (in the sense of opaque/neutral/toilette kind). The yuzu and grapefruit combination imprints a more fresh concreteness that is anyway bright, almost transparent, leas herbal and with a slightly bitter background.
Summary: Very comfortable and fresh version of Azzaro pour homme. When it goes to the basenotes, has the spirit of the original with a younger aura. Best if used in spring/summer months. Top notes remember me another fragrance, maybe one of the 90's...When I made my blind buy of this juice my first impression was an old friend that came back to my house.
Summary: Very good review by Sporenburg (with one point I am going to defer on - see below) overall. I have mini Vintage bottles of Azzaro Pour Homme Intense that attest to the fact that it is deeper, more opulent and the basenotes are richer. It is not louder, but the depth allows it to be a more 'Intense' version. I have both Vintage and current formulation of Azzaro Pour Homme. Vintage is excellent and current is very good.
Summary: Like a Greek man with a hairy chest, sat by the beach sipping his ouzo on the rocks, this is a VERY masculine concoction of ouzo - oops, I mean anise - and lavender, set on a wider base of woods like oakmoss, sandalwood and vetiver. Definitely a summer scent in my mind, go easy on the trigger. Please. Fancy something more modern? Try Roger & Gallet's L'Homme!
Summary: Herbal masterpiece I think some of the suggestions for wear here are a little nuts. I would say 1-3 sprays, or else you run the risk of stunning and killing everything in your path. True story: I was at the mall at a perfume/cologne store and the girl gave me a three-spray sample of Azzaro on my hand. She told me to "keep moving." I proceeded to another shop, where I struck up a conversation with a salesman.
