    Azzaro pour Homme by Azzaro

    I got this perfume recently online (blind buy) after reading glowing reviews about it. That it is a classic and a "perfection" of an earlier classic (Paco Rabanne Pour Homme) got me very interested.

    The first couple of sprays and it transports you straight to paradise. Like a well made firecracker that erupts over the Thames on new year's eve, this perfume actually starts off with spontaneous, very beautiful, distinct accords. The beauty of the opening is that a million riots open up just in front of you and you know each note is different, natural and very smooth.

    That having said, the perfume does get linear after the top notes settle down. I could not make out the middle notes from the base notes. This is not altogether a big flaw; just that I was expecting an olfactory feast in stages after such a bang of an opening.

    The perfume starts out as a Ferrari but loses much of it's horsepower along the way. On me it lasts less than 6 hours and the dry-down is pretty much weak. Will I buy it again? Definitely. Just wish it would last all day.
