    Azzaro pour Homme by Azzaro

    I have so many fond memories of this. My best friend acquired it in 1982 and it always brings back those free and easyish days of yore. Underage consumption of gin and tonic and dancing to "Let The Music Play" whilst smoking and smelling of APH.
    Azzaro PH is perhaps the true grandfather of all the 80's over the top "powerhouse" colognes for men of that decade. He may have invented it. He certainly ruled the roost by 1982. So it took four years for him to migrate from the Continent. But prior to that, Azzaro wasn't exactly a household name like St. Laurent or Cardin. I'm not sure he even made mens' how he managed to gain such a strong and popular foothold is anyone's guess. But he was quickly overtaken by the many imitators and successors to the throne that came on his heels. Calvin Klein's Obsession for Men comes to mind. And it wouldn't be wrong to say that Obsession is Azzaro PH's not too distant cousin.
    In any event, APH is of course now a classic. Tried and true as they say. Manly yes, and I like it too! A scent for grown-ups. Spicy, leathery, yet clean. Just a touch dirty and very sexy on most men. Or rather it can make most any man sexy. My one point of confusion: this is almost always mentioned in the same breath with Paco Rabanne Pour Homme; but to me they are nothing at all alike.
