Wonderful spicy oriental...
It just shows you that not all great fragrances need to come from high-end perfume houses! This one certainly offered a lot for it's price and was quite pleasing.
It opens with spicy cloves and cinnamon and spicy black pepper, the caraway is also prominent and stays throughout the duration of the fragrance. i detect a hint of lavender and dry herbs, and the cinnamon definately gives the whole thing a nice warm touch, like a big hug or sitting by the fire. It also has a very nice pepper and sandalwood base, which makes it very smooth and very dry.
Overall, this a really nice creation from Yves Rocher, and I think it's fair to use the phrase "they don't make them like this any more!". Indeed!
Woody cinnamon. Aztek opens fresh, spicy and aromatic to quickly evolve into a moderately sweet spicy sandalwood/vanilla base that's simple, slightly cheap but overall pleasant. Not bad but if you're looking for a spicy/woody composition there are plenty of better options out there...
Cinnamon, sugar and water.
Zero sillage, sticks to the skin.
Weak smell, though thumbs up for not smelling synthetic, it really smells natural, but still I get a cheap vibe of this one.
Non offensive, non attrative also.
This one is very much like Diesel's Zero Plus Masculine. Heavy on cinnamon and woody notes but very little depth or complexity. Actually both the bottle and the scent itself feels kind of tacky and it's a good example of the fact that many cheap fragrances really are plain bad. Any other of the male Rocher launches is a better choice than Aztec.
I don't know about this Aztec scent. It smells like a Pez candy at first. Then cinnamon starts coming out and now my hand smell like a hot ball candy.
Yeah, this is spicy stuff! I like it OK but it is not my favourite of the Yves Rocher scents. My favourites were Samarkande and Trimaran (unfortunately discontinued) and Homme Nature which is one of the very few aquatic-fresh fragrance I can stand.
