Reviews of Silver Black / Onyx

The opening is mildly sweet and fruity, like a bowl of fruity cereal. The drydown has a green, soapy freshness to it that might have a small callback to the original Azzaro ph. Later, the drydown is a decent, powdery woods scent.

Seems best for casual, daytime-office wear and maybe all weather except high heat.

I'm surprised some reviewers got big performance out of Silver Black. Each time I've worn it, it comes off as a subtle, quiet scent with decent lasting power. It could be good for close encounters with that kind of performance and seems to have some sexiness to it.

The opening is one of those many fresh bergamot-cum-citrus mixes, but the added apple is a bit extra; the aroma of slicing a green apple....

The drydown adds a nonspecific fruity undertone - young white peach cones to mind - with touches of cardamom and a - quite perfunctory - coriander that is hardly present except in tiny whiffs on me.

The base changes into a mix of a nonspecific woodsiness combines with white musks.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and eight hours of longevity on my skin.

A not unpleasant scent for cooler summer days, more on the bright side but marred by an overly synthetic and generic character. 2.75/5

Silver Black Onyx - Azarro
Sharp anisic-lavender packaged in a wool-like softness. Dark bitter tones with a puff of smoke and slightly urinic-animalic undertones. Strong. Green-herbal. Hot-peppery metallic. Coumarine x 10. Fresh-sweat soapyness. Colour: gun-metal. Freshness sharp as glass. Mossy. Terpenic pine needles. Cederwood-musky powdery. Little refinement. Blasting at high volume. Quickly bores. Cheap. Verdict: atomic stinkbomb.

This is a super powdery juice especially in the dry down. Just not a huge fan of the powder aspect of the juice although I do enjoy the opening a good bit. It has super longevity and projection. No more than 2 or 3 sprays will do for several hours (8 plus). A try before you buy of course unless you are into powdery fragrances.

This fragrance is perfect for a night out (the name 'Silver Black' is very apt), and smells melancholy yet masculine and pretty unique. Starts off with a very invigorating mix of green apple and lime. I can also sort of get a hint of juniper. It is a very dark fragrance from the get-go yet beautifully crafted as well. It leans extremely masculine. The fragrance starts off in its "silver" phase and as it dries down enters its "black" phase, getting progressively darker over time. This is definitely something I can see wearing at night or at a formal event with a suit. The whole fragrance is not sweet at all but at the same time is not astringent; it gets sweeter as it dries down. During drydown I detect patchouli leaves and white musk, along with a hint of coriander making it smell 'darker' and more like a forest. The opening of this fragrance is great while the drydown is utterly spectacular. It reminds me of a beautiful yet gloomy graveyard. Sillage is strong for the first hour and then moderate leaning for the remainder while longevity overall is strong. Overall this is one of my favourite fragrances and has a niche quality to it not seen in designer fragrances usually. It smells mysterious but beautiful and I would imagine a dark elf from the Elder Scrolls universe wearing this.

5/5

It's hard to believe this came out in 2005 and not 1985.
This is a very interesting scent. I smell the green apple but I feel like it's more some kind of spiced apple slices or something. The opening has a nice freshness to it, but then again, most fragrances do. When it gets so dry in smell is when I kind of turn away from it.
It's formal, for an older guy, bordering on old man cologne, at least to me.
If it were a love-it-or-hate-it scent like Kouros or Ralph Lauren Polo I'd give it a thumbs up. To me it's more of a kind-of-like-it-or-hate-it scent.
