    Chaz is a floral fougere that comes across almost like a leathery chypre. It bears more than a passing resemblance to Balenciaga's Portos, which lacks the distinctive Tonka note of a true fougere, but otherwise has many similarities --- fresh citrus and green topnotes giving way to wood, spices, moss and leather. A product of the disco era, it does have some of that brashness about it, but also a sophistication well beyond that of John Travolta's Tony Manero character in "Saturday Night Fever." I have the original Revlon formula, which is quite long-lasting on my skin.

    H&R's Fragrance Guide lists the notes as:

    TOP: Lavender, rosemary, laurel, bergamot, lemon
    MIDDLE: Geranium, carnation, pine, coriander, cinnamon, clary sage, cyclamen
    BASE: Cedarwood, moss, musk, tonka, amber

    Splash on some Chaz, put on the Trammps' "Disco Inferno" and burn the mutha' down!

    Review of the original Revlon formulation:
    An mandarin-citrus opening that has a somewhat boozy component with a green touch that is very pleasant; it is followed by a herbal moment before developing into a wood-based scent. In the drydown a gentle patchouli leads to a warm amber note, which in the later stages is sided by a restrained moss base. Never loud, this is balanced, well-blended, never heavy and not without a touch of elegance. Decent silage and projection, and four hours of longevity on my skin. Good on a cool spring day.

    My First ever scent.

    This cologne I remember was my first mens cologne to buy in a store. I may have tried Brut or Old spice given to me as gifts though. I didn't know any thing about mens colognes in how to shop for them or how to pick them out at that time. I bought it in either late 1979 or 1980. After awhile I quit wearing the cologne but I still had some left in the bottle. Eventually it went bad and then I threw it out. I heard they re-packaged it with a new look on the bottle and package several years ago. I don't know if they reformulated it too.? The old formula smelled so strong and very woody. My Mom smelled it on me one time and to her it smelled like wood. I heard its' discontinued now and I don't know if they sell it anywhere. I really don't care, as I don't like the scent anymore.

    Pros: Woody type of scent.
    Cons: Smells too strong."

    This is a totally dull, yawn-inducing 1970s-styled aromatic spicy scent (i.e., citrus on top of spicy wood notes and patchouli) with ZERO projection. I don't have the original Revlon version, but I can't believe that this has been reformulated all that drastically from the Revlon, because this still smells like a total 70's fragrance. When you can smell it.

    A perfect scent for the guy who hates smelling fragrance, but loves the concept of wearing it. I hate this scent.

    MY RATING: 3/10

    The current rendition of this by Jean Philippe/LMD is junk. No sillage, no longevity and hardly any scent, period. Lasts for about 6 minutes in a very muted orange (think of an even lighter, weaker 4711), then vanishes. Don't be hoodwinked by the bargain price; spend your cash on Canoe or Old Spice if you have less than a sawbuck to sacrifice.

    I have the vintage Revlon formulation. The opening is crude and "synthetic," which I've now learned to ignore with these older fragrances. Give it time, and it settles very nicely. Some have compare it to Zino, but I find Zino to be more complex and cruder. Zino also has a tobacco note that is missing here. Chaz seems to be a "woody/amber," but it's smoother than others with this kind of base. I'd describe it as a creamy woody/amber. Other than that, I'd guess there is some leather or suede, patchouli, spice, and perhaps an herbal element. It is not musky, and the wood note is much less powerful and wearable than the modern cedar notes so common in recent "men's" fragrances. I was surprised at how mellow this is, in fact, though I would advise against smelling it up close on the skin. It's one of those fragrances that needs to mix with air before it gets to you nose. Longevity is at least very good and projection/"sillage" is good. I don't spray much so it might have much stronger sillage is you spray 4 or 5 times per wearing. I don't find this too "old school" for those not used to such fragrances, but only spray once on your first wearing!
