Chrome fragrance notes

Reviews of Chrome

I love the smell of this -- crisp, clean, and very nice for a simple, inoffensive office fragrance in the warm months. I would rate it higher, but this does not have good projection or lifespan; with 10 sprays, I barely notice it an hour or so later.

Chrome is young, fresh and clean. All good qualities that make this a versatile and popular scent for younger guys. The most recent ads show a "dad" as the target audience, so maybe it's actually more popular with a more mature demographic, considering when it was released.

Yes, it is kinda metallic and cloying, but I like this better than Nautica Voyage. Also, performance is impressive, both in projection and longevity, so error on the side of less if you're trying for the first time.

Resort scent at a recent Bahamian stay. Love it for warm weather beach scent. Every time I wear it, I go back...

Long lasting, fresh, masculine scent from Loris Azzaro that gets compliments every time I'd worn it.

The dominant notes in this one are the musks in the head notes ("transparent" is an interesting description!). The citrus head notes don't last too long, making way for the smoothening effects of the mysterious heart notes. Sandalwood gives it enough stability and predictability.

The Intense version is pronouncedly sharper and also quite nice...a reformulation that magnifies and lengthens the citrus notes quite a bit.

Great scent all year round.

I'm a girl, and I found this scent on a guy to be extremely seductive. My nose is fairly sensitive so more powerful scents are usually not appealing to me, but I found this one to be plenty powerful, but in a good way -- I cant get enough of it!

In fact i was so enamored by it, that i went searching for which cologne it was. I found myself in a tax-free shop at an airport that had a vast array of testers for colognes and perfumes, and after sniffing maybe 10-15 of them, i found it! It was Chrome Azzaro.

I once sniffed this years ago from the bottle and thought nasty, but really I was being prejudice based on the price and image. I decided to give a bottle a chance and am glad I did.

This is like the best deodorant every made more than cologne, but that is why I think it is great. It is quite strong and envelopes you in fresh clean smell. It stays linear for a really long time and never turns cloying.

It smells of fresh citrus without an orange or grapefruit note, citrus without fruit. It is more clean laundry with a hint of fresh metallic note. I hate metal smell, but this is a good metallic (stainless steel dipped in snow, not old copper penny). Not unique, but I would call it a common masterpiece. Great value too!
