    Smile azzaro chrome VS azzaro visit

    One of the first fragrances i ever purchased was azzaro pour homme(1978)-i really loved the anise accord in that one,however times have now changed for me(fragrance wise)and i am now looking to buy my second azzaro fragrance.I have opted for either-chrome(1996),or visit(2003)-i am willing to buy either of these fragrances blind,because from words of wisdom past on to me from fellow basenoters i have bought blind several fragrances and have so far been totally pleased.Which one of these azzaro fragrances should i opt for? Many thanks.

    I've never tried Visit, but I own and wear and enjoy Chrome. Don't expect it to be anything like Azzaro PH! It's more like CK one for grown-ups, fresher, less sweet, less floral with a distinct and very pleasant metallic note that smells to me like freshly polished... chrome! And it projects everywhere and lasts forever.

    I own Visit and have owned Chrome. I kept Visit and sold Chrome off. Chrome isn't unpleasant, it just seems like I've smelled it in many frags before. Visit to my nose is quite different to other scents, very woody with nutmeg. They can't really be compared but I would opt for Visit :P

    Chrome: clean and soapy

    Visit: spicy and woody

    I prefer Visit.

    I've worn both.

    I owned Visit at one time and liked it a lot; however, the longevity wasn't that good for a spicy/woody/incense scent. Chrome is a good, well-crafted "clean" scent with a megaton of longevity, but here in the States it's very popular: the market share stats show it as #5 on the US men's sales charts, up there with AdG, Polo Blue, and D&G Light Blue Pour Homme (and where original Azzaro PH doesn't sell very well anymore). Not sure about the UK.

    You can't go wrong either way.

    I own and love APH (the only time I've ever liked anise). I also have Chrome and Visit, and don't care for either one. It's not that they are bad fragrances, they just aren't great like their older brother. They both, as far as I can recall, smelled like many other fresh/crisp department store scents out there now.

    Another Visit fan here. Chrome is great but it's everywhere and there's a lot out there that smells like it.
    Visit is warm, woody with incense. It's very comforting and lasts on me. BTW, I too, own APH. Still like it a lot but don't reach for it that often. No doubt, a classic and a must-own.

    both are such fabulous scents...very hard to choose. sirslarty has decribed them right, you should go with either one of it depending on your taste...
    if you want something more in lines of Azzaro Ph then Visit should be your choice, chrome is just a blast of freshness wtih amazing staying power. i love both of em..

    Chrome to me is just like CK one and it is the Drakkar Noir of the new generation in the US. For me Chrome does not last very long or project at all - I have noticed that "all men' who wear this scent are very very heavy with applying this so this may lead them to believe it is long lasting with sillage.

    Visit on the other hand is a very rich cedar and incense with a dash of pink pepper fragrance. I find it to be close to Donna Karen's Black Cashmere that was released a few years back. The scent to my skin is very long lasting and if over done can be very tedious.

    Ditto. Visit is a very warm, comforting scent that lasts, though you do have to be a fan of nutmeg!

    I've never smelled Visit. But Chrome was what I wrote back in high school along with Jovan Musk. I recently picked up Azzaro pH and loved it. I also got my old Chrome bottle back recently and it's still as good as ever. I wouldn't describe it as fresh and clean - I would say more professional and cold.

    Visit - Suggested use:- when the weather begins to cool down
    Chrome suggested use- when the weather begins to warm up


    so make your choice based on the current weather trend in your area...

    In my own opinion, Chrome is a little safer to buy blind while Visit like others in it Spicy category is better be tried on first

    I like Chrome - I have a 100ml bottle, a 30ml bottle, and eight 20ml bottles. But I only use it in summer here, and when I go overseas and do lots of walking in warm to hot weather. It just keeps on lasting and keeping me fresh all day when I'm perspiring, where all my the other scents would have conked out.

    I have a 50ml bottle of Visit, and I find it better in cooler weather.

    Visit, simply because it's not as mundane and commonplace as a Chrome-type fragrance.

    The shower Gel of Chrome is the only Azzaro I own (except pH). It's really great to use in the summer, and each time it makes me giggle like a school girl thinking of a certain Chandler Burr who opened a new rating category for it in NYT: Zero Stars !Let's see if I can find that for you:

    "Chrome smells like a sheet of aluminum (!) on a frozen beach, a scent to be bought by a certain type of man for whom beauty and subtlety are Orwellian opposites. It is also a commercial smash.(!) What does that say?" NYT: Men Smelling Badly (Chrome is still the only one in that category. All exclamation marks are mine. )

    LOL! That's actually exactly how I feel about Chrome, I subscribe to Burr's assessment
    100%. When I smell Chrome I am instantly reminded of a rusty metal door handle I once grabbed with my bare hand to open the door on a -30 C winter day. Yes, when I smell Chrome I smell literally rust and every time I have this sensation my train of thought and allusions bring up mental pictures of kids who foolishly lick metal on a freezing day.

    Perhaps it says that he is totally divorced and out of touch with what the typical European and American male appreciates and likes - like an ultra fresh, long lasting, citrus masculine scent?

    Maybe they should make a new version of Footloose where instead of banning rock music and dancing, they ban scents that Chandler Burr and Luca Turin don't like?

    Turin's take on Chrome was,
    "Why, oh why do people want to pay real money to get the smell of their shampoo played louder, in a form that doesn't even wash hair?"

    Which is most annoying - as he doesn't state which shampoos actually smell like Chrome.
    I'd be buying them by the bucket load.

    Visit. Why Yes?

    Well, Visit have a lovely aura, carisma, spices.....Very spetial feeling.....Good longevity and sillage.

    Chrome? Why No?

    Because is a little bit flat and common. Nothing more. Very common style.

    Perhaps that is the case for your nose. But I can instantly spot Chrome when someone else is wearing it. To my nose, there's nothing else quite like it.
