    For the fly guy after hours, evening out, date, whatever...

    Sweet top, fruity drydown. A confident scent, without being all up in everybody's face. Oozing pleasant aromas as it develops. Stays for 5-6 hours with the help of hirsute arms.

    Not bad, but nothing special.

    Similar to: Azzaro pour Homme, Openings of: A*Men Taste of Fragrance, Valentino V pH, Spicebomb, Polo Red, Hot Water.

    Azzaro pour Homme Elixir is a decent release. As of late, it seems that Azzaro is trying to capitalize on the "pour Homme" brand, making flankers of the original. A wise decision on their part, since Azzaro pH, is probably one of the best fragrances and top sellers of all time. I can't say the same about Elixir though. At first, I really loved it. So much that I bought a 3.4 oz bottle. But as the weeks and months went by, it just got pushed further and further back on my shelf. My shelf of 150+ scents. When you have a lot of fragrances, scents like Elixir become boring and redundant. It has a good opening, but after that, it's just a boring, generic, tonka and oakmoss dry down. Very common, and just annoying at this point. So perhaps this review may be a little biased, as my frustration with redundant designer release dry downs becomes perceived.

    Onto the scent itself though. The opening is a blast of pink pepper, balanced out with that more and more common "Swedish fish" accord. The same accord I find in the openings of Taste of Fragrance, Valentino V, Spicebomb, Polo Red, Hot Water, even Pure Havane. And, if you have smelled these openings, you know the candied "red" gummy accord I speak of. How appropriate, most of these scents are marketed as "red" scents or with red bottles, denoting the smell of the color red. Elixir is most certainly a red fragrance, in the opening. But as it dries down it shows more of its similarities with the great Azzaro pH. You get that oakmoss, bergamot, lavender, geranium, coumarin; everything that makes it a common fougere. It's really nice, but again, so redundant. The tonka emerges in the middle and is prominent in the dry down. Longevity is 8+ hours on my skin, with average projection throughout.

    If you want masculinity, stick with the original. There is no anise in Elixir, which is the key ingredient in the original, which is what makes it so amazing. Instead you get a fruity top here. A spinoff of the original, with a more modern and youthful appeal to it. But, as said, I prefer the masculinity of the original, which is a timeless classic.

    Pros: Longevity.
    Cons: Boring."

    A cheap alternative

    Very much like Code without the strong leafy vibe. An OK fragrance for the price I just can't personally wear vanilla so will pass.

    Another proof that manly and sweet can coexist with little fuss. Take the original APH which is a bit sweet but quite dense, and thin it out to about 70% strength then vanilla in the middle. There is a rosy thing going on too though a bit synthetic and probably two note vibing off each other. If you are looking for a scent that says you are manly yet sensitive, this is a good choice.

    safe scent. bergamot,rose,vanilla and tonka bean. a nice light oriental well worth the cash. i don' get any lemon or pear which might not be a bad thing. good projection and sillage as with most azzaro's..
