    Genre: Fougère

    Azzaro is one of the more spicy and sharp-edged fougère scents, its topnotes bristling with sage, lavender, thyme, and any number of dry aromatics. While it’s not as aggressive a masculine scent as say, Yatagan, (which came out only two years earlier,) it is only slightly less harsh in its profile. Imagine Yatagan having made a few concessions to civilized society, and you might come up with something very much like Azzaro. Not to imply that Azzaro pour Homme lacks distinction. With its brash, unsweetened herbal character it is immediately recognizable.

    As it develops Azzaro’s herbs and spices make room for a piney accord that’s bitter enough to suggest even a touch of creosote. In fact, I’m reminded when I wear it of creosote-soaked timbers. There’s a good deal of moss and vetiver buried at Azzaro’s core as well, and these lend the composition an earthy quality and a certain degree of sophistication it might not otherwise possess. Unlike some of the hard-hitting ‘80s masculines that followed it, Azzaro makes a brisk, outdoorsy impression – more lumberjack than junk bond trader. The lasting power is outstanding and the sillage tremendous, so it pays to wear Azzaro in moderation, especially if you’re going to be working or traveling in close quarters.

    Is Azzaro dated? Only in the sense that no designer label would release a scent like this today. Azzaro is far too assertive for today’s pallid, spineless men’s fragrance market. Thank goodness. And thank Loris Azzaro for leaving this classic stand, alongside the likes of Kouros and Yatagan, as a monument to the scent industry’s braver days.

    Greatest men's fragrance in the last half century. A classic and a masterpiece. The CITIZEN KANE, of male perfumery. 10 out of 10. Wish longevity was 10-12 hours instead of 6-8. A brilliant landmark I. Fragrance history, and like a well tailored suit will be modern and chic forever. I pray they never stop making it.

    Azzaro - Azzaro pour Homme
    I cant explain why this is soo good, but it is... Its opening is maybe a bit too in-your-face and brusque; greatly efficient but not too very refined and quiet, but it settles down in the most beautiful and subtle, warm piquant-green dryout ever. Not very big or full, but loud in a very concentrated kind of way - it manifests a tremendous compressed and lively aromaticness with a lot of fraicheur. And while doing so, it doesn’t try to impress or to be more than it can be - it knows what its qualities are and delivers them without any boasting and bragging, in perfect form; like Ayrton Senna racing on the grand prix of Monaco.
    It kicks off with a blast of anisic, slight soapy clary sage with a peppery feel, and warm spicy juniper-berry. Then it grows to soft-floral lavender with coolish cardamon and lemony green petit-grain with cedarwood, green pine, basil and anise; which has a juicy and lively green flow to it. Somehow this part gets a bit blurry and blown-up to my taste; a very rich melting-pot of notes - but after this it somehow manages to extract the essence of all that is going on, in one focused and compressed 'shine' that radiates a lot of warmth and a superb sweet-bitter balance. Patchouli, vetiver and sandalwood? are joining and preluding its slight salty and dirty animalic, piquant greeny, caraway-spicy toned, oakmoss-based dryout.
    As a whole - this makes a perfume that is almost impossible to dislike; it is simply built with too much intensity, fine-tuned quality and simplicity. Unique, and one of a kind.

    European spice. This is a very distinctly older scent, meaning I can tell when this came out it instantly had to become a staple to a certain type man. It still is relevant today. Hairy chests unite!

    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. As it is, sometimes I think of APH as a very refined fragrance, and other times I think I smell like I'm wearing a big bar of Dial soap around my neck. Not a bad scent at all, but not necessarily one that I want consistently from a cologne.

    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.
