Reviews of Wanted by Night

Where do I begin?
(No beginnings or endings
Seems to be the rule.)

So I might as well
Blame it on Pine-Sol again
(He of little faith)

Born to come at me
A thousand different ways
By Beauty's design

Eyeing clear facets
On Ambroxanne's better hand
Sayin' "Hey there, babe,

Lookin' for a job?"
Like she'll turn down anything
"This one is easy."

Until she objects
"Not those three jokers again!"
Pine-Sol starts laughing

Talkin' 'bout Lemon
Vetiver and Cardamom
"That damn kid is fresh!"

Gotta be Cardy
"He lit my damn wig on fire!"
Pine-Sol crackin' up

He knows the story
"And me - a married woman!"
She puffs 'em out good

"Double the money"
Meaning original price
The old gal is in

Athena wakes up
No mortal fucks with that girl's
Higher abstractions

"It's gonna be great"
Pine-Sol unrolls the blueprints
Amber gets that look

Zeus tuckin' it in
As throne-room doors fly open
"You ALLOWED this crap?"

With judicious cringe
"My radical abundance..."
Dodging thrown fire-tongs

"It has a purpose."
"That is MY fucking temple
He's walking into."

"Cedar will be here."
"What's that thing she's holding?"
"You don't need to know."

Gaining composure
Trying to explain Amber's
Terpenoid beauties

"This will all work out."
Lost to sound of fuck you heels
Poseidon wakes up.

"What is going on?"
Cinnamon shaking her head
Tobacco snickers

"They said we're needed."
Glancing into the rear-view
"I'm not seeing it."

"Whatever it is
If they wanted us to know
They would have told us."

"Ask the three stooges!"
Pine-Sol laughing in the van
"We's jus da cleanas!"

Vetiver blows smoke
"Don't mind us, Miss Cinnamon."
"Hey, bro - we're Wanted."

Cardamom high-fives
Vetiver high-fives Pine-Sol
High-fives Lemon Oil.

Scanning her temple
Through defiling Cyclops eyes
Athena spies him

Faithful acolyte
Walking into treachery
Her temple defiled

By schemes within schemes
Lies that hide in tiny print
Warfare cast as law.

Whisks him back in time
To wondrous gift of vision
Both promises made

And promises kept
Of her temples not defiled
When so instructed

Athena winking
Argus the Kid finds Beauty
Beauty finds Argus

Plot unfoldimg
Dance of love but no handles
Where treason thought them

Temple plots undone
By higher plots, higher loves
Vetiver's arms raised

In a fucking V
Ambroxanne comes up snake eyes
But hits the jackpot

Pine-sol engineered
"Dude, you're a freaking genius.
He's gonna buy it."

Pine-Sol turns around.
"All these jokers think that this
Other shit matters."

All eyes on the screen
Cardamom shaking his fist
"Buy the fucking gun!"

Neptune walks up to
Athena on topless beach
"Sorry, I'm busy"

Behind her Chanels
Eyes wide shut in far-off land
As he walks away

She yells after him
"No other gods before me!"
Neptune turns around

"It's why Zeus loves him.
But he will never love Zeus
The way he loves me."

The Lone Gunmen cheer
As face-palm bottle heads for
Radio City.

Athena inhales
Cedar's violin aloft
Radio silence

Temple doors erupt
To cheers from parked cleaning van
As Argus walks free

Tobacco looks at
Cinnamon looks at Cedar
Looks at her fiddle

Staring at zeroes
"I thought this guy had a gun."
Beach babe laughs "He did!"

Someone says "That's it?"
Lemon Oil turns to Pine-Sol
"We really did it."

"Ambroxanne did it.
Just like she pulls Cardy's chain
She's what makes the sale."

"And the other stuff?"
"It's all unimportant, kid."
"Then what the hell is?"

"Only simple stuff."
Acolyte smiles at goddess.
Zeus smiles at them all.

If Azzaro Wanted (2016) never really had much chance with the fragrance community, then Azzaro Wanted By Night (2018) likely has even less, since it's another "faux ambergis" build with the heavily-abused ambroxan base aromachemical, but jacked up to parfum strength. Other parfum counterparts of popular masculine fragrances embroiled in the "ambroxan Loudness War" usually mix some brisk aromatics or dry woods into the base to keep the sweetness equal to the standard eau de toilette entry, but with beefed-up resonance, which is how Chanel approached Bleu de Chanel Parfum (2018), and Dior handled Sauvage Eau de Parfum (2018). Azzaro Wanted By Night plays equal parts flanker and "parfum edition" of the original Azzaro Wanted, upping the concentration of the scent and also to adding to the note pyramid without much counter-balancing of the sweetness such amplification entails, creating a club-friendly rendition of Azzaro Wanted that explains the title. For Mr. Joe Blow of Averageville, this is probably a good thing, as he can now take his favorite daily driver for a night cruise to the local watering hole for overpriced drinks and phone numbers passed on napkins, but for the "discerning fragrance connoisseur" that doesn't buy anything without a minimum of 3 accents over the vowels in the title anymore, this one is guilty of high treason for taking the house of Azzaro even further down the dark path of the "basic broseph dude". All cultural division parody aside, Azzaro Wanted by Night does seem to cash in shamelessly on the style of Versace Eros (2013), YSL La Nuit L'Homme (2009), and Paco Rabanne 1 Million (2008), but it makes sense, as the perfumer behind the latter is also responsible for this creation, even if he's not alone.

Michel Girard joins with Quentin Bisch, who previously developed limited "modern update" editions of both Azzaro Pour Homme (1978) and Azzaro Chrome (1996) in 2016, with the pair tackling Fabrice Pellegrin's original work in Azzaro Wanted by adding in cinnamon, tobacco, lavender, and cedar to the primary accords, plus tweaking some knobs to reach the desired effect. Sweet French lavender joins the ginger and lemon of the original's top, which sufficiently dulls the "freshness" of it and makes it more compatible with night air. From there, we get the same transition into cardamom and cade oil, with the juniper note that produces turned up higher and flanked with cinnamon and tobacco, delivering a rich, spicy, intoxicating effect only a few minutes into the wear that greatly appeals to fans of assertive club scents, but admittedly few else. The base comes rather quickly and congeals with the heart to produce a linear effect that lasts the rest of the wear, replacing the vetiver of the original base with cedar, but doubling down on tonka and ambroxan. There's so much ambroxan here, that Wanted by Night might as well be the reference scent for it, as once the cinammon and lavender finally fall by the wayside, the ambroxan sweetness just throbs and throbs on skin until washed off. Sillage is intense, and longevity is near-immortal, which ironically makes this take on the Azzaro Wanted scent profile more suited performance-wise for day wear, even if stylistically, it's a nightmare of alpha male aggression. A little goes a long way doesn't begin to describe this stuff's power.

I can't bring myself to hate Azzaro Wanted by Night, as I find the original a really nice semi-oriental take on the ambroxan trend, with some old-school thinking applied to an ostensibly new-age kind of genre. Once all the faux-ambergris and norlimbanol scents finally fall out of fashion the way 90's calone and hedione freshies eventually did, this may very well be considered the Joop Homme (1989) of it's generation in terms of sheer "come here baby" loudness and swagger, even if it's not pulling up to the club in a lowered Subaru Impreza WRX with running lights like the rest of its ilk. Bottom line, Azzaro Wanted by Night smells like it is made to be lightly layered on top of the original Azzaro Wanted and "take over" for the business casual feel of the original, adding sexy spice and amped sweetness on top of the skin scent left behind by the original, so if worn that way, I give this a thumbs up, as it's literally like an accessory to the original for club or party use. As a scent on it's own, I couldn't see owning this, even if I had the original, as like with other "distinguished fragrance connoisseurs" I poked fun at above, I am too busy playing with smelly juices to be bothered with my local club scene, and am instead sitting here writing these reviews for you. For a club-worthy flavor enhancer to the original Wanted, or just a heady sweet party juice for an all-night bender, this is a good addition to your wardrobe, but for everyone else, there really is nothing to see here, but you probably guessed as much by the name alone. I highly recommend sniffing the original Azzaro Wanted before going anywhere near this, as they are literally night and day, pun fully and unapologetically intended. PS: I still love this bottle design!

Very sweet opening, just like the original Wanted. Smells like La Nuit mixed with the original, thinking maybe cardamom was added but it's nowhere to be found in the notes. I'm not getting any tobacco and only a small hint of the cinnamon, but I do get the cedar even with all the sweetness.

I feel like they got it right with this as far as a flanker goes. It does feel more appropriate for night or cooler weather event. Also, more refined than the original.

Projection is very good for 4-5 hirs and then the skin scent lasts all workday.

The prominent impression I get is that of sweet fruitiness. The fruity side is quite nonspecific, with touches of ginger and vetiver. The sweetness is mostly cinnamon-based, a bit vanilla-like at times, although otherwise not particularly typical.

So far it reminds me of the original, but here there is added depth and spiciness; a soft spiciness. I do net get any convincing tobacco or woods.

I get strong sillage, excellent projection and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

This spring scent has many characteristics of the original, but this flanker is a bit deeper in its timbre and a bit spicier. The sweetness is quite overwhelming and cloying at times, and the whole is excessively synthetic. Not Azzaro’s finest hour. Apply with caution. 2.25/5.
