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..
The hardly realizable attempt to ground a new olfactory dimention (more sweet, tasty, dusty, mysterious and appealing??) on the sphere of one of the most appreciated aromatic creations of the parfumed universe. There is the lavender, the oakmoss, some spices plus smoke, geranium, a citrusy accord, may be the aromatic touch of anise and on this plane they added a fruity-tasty insertion (pear and blackcurrant) and a soapy, bit powdery, base because of the vanilla, labdanum and benzoin presence rather than ambergris and musk. Despite named elixir it lacks of the wonderful aromatic-exotic cool touch of the original and is less bold, brash and autoritative of its predecessor for sure . The final sweet-powdery Elixir's warmth, taking the place of the musky-boise' aromatic and masculine Pour Homme's dry down, is common and unoriginal being more similar to the one of some modern creations as Hot Water, Xeryus Rouge or some Carolina Herrera' scents than to the traditional aromatics fougere. The Elixir's aromatic bit watery initial blast is also similar in its conception to the beginning of some upmentioned modern concoctions with their fresh-aromatic or lavender starting and powdery sweet vanillic final. Anyway Elixir deserves its fair attention for the undeniable appeal and for its attempt to offer a different point of view about a stable aromatic protagonist in the olfactory world.
I've always liked Azzaro PH. Elixir is a lighter verison with the pleasing additions of smooth tobacco, rose and cherry notes. This is unmistakably Azzaro PH but with more subtlety. I really like it. A prefect cold weather scent. I think I prefer it to PH!
Azzaro pour Homme Elixir is an alternative for those who like masculine rose notes. Well, for me, anyway because those rose notes, tones and hues are invariably too sweet for me and too dense but there is nothing dense about this fragrance. This is a delightful melange of gourmand and restrained oriental elements that presents as a rather sweet but never cloying lavender and geranium accord before metamorphosing into something akin to a confectionery musk. This stage lasts for around 20 minutes on my skin before the journey rounds out in entirely satisfying sweet gourmand notes that are defined by the tonka bean and restrained accordingly. The vanilla seems implied as if hinted at. This is the most satisfying use of vanilla I have experienced; generally, I find vanilla overwhelmingly, nauseatingly sweet. Azzaro conains it, defines it and bends it to its urbane and chic will. The effect over all is wonderful. It is reminiscent of M7 by YSL but it is more mannered, less strident and never even vaguely like a cough syrup. Rather, it is a demure and confident fragrance. It is nothing like Azzaro pour homme except that both fragrances are timeless and deserving of acclaim. It reminds me of Jacomo de Jacomo Rouge.
Just hate it like most of all others from Azzaro!!! Well, I have to tell... when I first smelt this I was very surprised and I almost bought it. Thank God that tryed on my skin... I spent almost 3 hours choosing others fragrances in the store and... what´s happened?! An awful drydown, just turned into the classic "macho cliche Azzaro" that make me sick!!! The opening is very good... but it has a power to become a Monster!
Azzaro Elixir was a pleasant surprise! This one starts out with a dominant fruity/Sweet smell. A blast of lavender followed by fruits that trough times, gives space to a dominant vanilla/tonka bean chord, and so, the fragrance stays this way, until the end. Anyway, you can't go wrong with this one, specially because it is a cheap fragrance, if you don't like it, the damage won't be much.
I experienced this as a very dark scent. I really liked it. Smelt a basic at the very beginning but dried down as a very masculine fragrance. Lasted really long on me!
"Pour les hommes qui aiment les femmes qui n'aiment pas Azzaro pour Homme." A delightful fruity fougere that re-interprets the amazing Azzaro pour Homme. This is like one of those movies that re-imagines a TV series from the 80s - it nods charmingly to its source material, but it's obviously of the current moment. Fortunately it's also a great, well-constructed scent. Elixir opens with smooth, sweet fruits, and they continue to color the fragrance as it dries down into a lighter, slightly sweeter version of classic Azzaro PH. If you found the original too strong, you might find Elixir just right. Sillage and longevity are moderate. Is it as good as the original Azzaro pour Homme? Maybe not, but it is awfully good.
