    An interesting relaunch of the great classic that now is equally dry (starring is the grapefrut/citrus/geranium accord), less spicy, more lemony (the yuzu is notable), less aromatic and with that final tart/watery modern approach that turns out slightly soapy (in the sense of opaque/neutral/toilette kind). The yuzu and grapefruit combination imprints a more fresh concreteness that is anyway bright, almost transparent, leas herbal and with a slightly bitter background. A good example of cool and dry woodsiness with a notable final watery virile vetiver. Longevity and projection are in the average.
    P.S: i've tested again this fragrance and i felt on my skin a more developed sort of almost marine kind of soapiness reminding me some creations from Il Profvmo or Profumum Roma (Pioggia Salata, Acqua di Sale etc). Yes, i detect a sort of opaque salty/marine green soapiness that frankly diverts notably from the classic aromatic greeness from Azzaro Pour Homme. I could assert that l'Eau Pour Homme is basically a different kind of fragrance.

    Why neutral? Well, original is original and that's that. There is a strange watery echo in this fragrance in the dry-down, not necessarily bad. Citruses are mildly felt only in the initial moments after spraying but all in all this scent is too similar at one point to the original, at the other point it is way similar to the Cerruti 1881. So, all in all not bad, classic scent in the spirit of the 1980's but also unnecessary and I find it quite doubtful that it'll be noticed or get a lot of attention.
