I was searching for a nice woody scent with noticable sandalwood, cedarwood notes - and after reading all the reviews I found Azzaro Visit, it was a blind buy. My expectations were so high! I used it for the first time today and I can't say I'm impressed.I was expecting a more fresh, modern woody scent - something like CdG Wonderoud. It is nothing like I imagined. I agree with one of the other reviews that nutmeg or incense is too powerful on this one. It doesn't give that "blue" woody feeling, so bottle is also misleading. To me this is a very "warm" scent - suitable for winter and the wood notes are too sweet. It is very unique though, which is a plus. I think sandalwood note should have been more dominant with fresh spices, then it would be a masterpiece.
In my journey I came upon Visit subsequent to the iconic Gucci pH I (2003) and before becoming familiar with the likes of Rush pH, Tumulte, 2 Man, Bang, and others with that good cedar, pepper, incense character of varying degree. The first two do the job quite well and I've not pursued these others past the samples. Got it covered, so to speak.
If you don't care for nutmeg then I'd doubt you'd care much for Visit. It's loaded with it well into its heart. I appreciate that aspect and that it's not quite as sharp as GpHI. Light blue juice color is odd, perhaps tan would better match the smell but no matter.
I'm 50+, for reference. Paid around $.30/ml for a 100ml bottle dated to 2008 a few years back. Don't know about current formulation(s).
Cheap ripoff of Gucci Rush for Men; it completely lacks in the class, the complexity and the grace of Gucci, but it is not bad if you’re willing to settle and lower your expectations. I mean, it is a bit like a well made doll resembling to a human being, it looks like the real thing but lacking in warmth and vibrancy – in life, shortly. Azzaro Visit is all about synthetic cedar and sandalwood, with a ton of Iso E Super and some violet; fresh, “urban”, really simple and moderately enjoyable. More dry and more woody than Rush, more peppery/nutmeg too, and above all more openly, harshly synthetic... but decent for the price.
I have been looking for sooo long and spent so much time on the internet to find a reasonable replacement for my old favorite GUCCI RUSH for men (that has been discontinued). I finally found a replacement
Azzaro Visit for Men is an amazing scent for a really good price.
Woody, well balanced and with a strong + cypress + cedar (and maybe also sandalwood).
I think it is the scents enhancer "Iso-E super" (that is described as a cedary scent) and that might be the reason for its very good performance.
That is also it's con – it is the dominant metallic - synthetic long- note that sticks out and last all day
I added a half a drop of SANDALWOOD oil to about 2 ml of Azzaro VISIT and got very close to RUSH and almost a whole day of lasting with a strong projection
VISIT is a Woody Spicy which contrary To prejudices can be carried into DAY wear without Problem. Modern but with a touch of traditional feeling. It is Absolutely Woody,Masculine,but not Overbearing. Audacious,Captivating, Earthy,Warm,Strong,Nice but Nothing Extraordinary.
It blends a mildly Sweet scent with a more Subtle Spice which is a Perfect balance for business settings yet pleasure moments. In fact It starts with spicy notes not too strong but It is Strong enough to turn heads. Incense,cedar in the Heart make this quite Masculine.
I recommend it to a Strong and Smart man who likes a Good Woody fragrance with Incense.VISIT is Definately a WINTER fragrance.perfect for any Occasion.I wouldent say I Like it more than CHROME but It is a nice manly smell indeed.
Longevity?Good on my skin like often AZZARO fragrances.
