Glad you found this!
Some consider it the best men's Fougère, ever.
The painful 2-5 minutes is worth it. On me it lasts 5-10. I believe it's flennel crashing against anise but I'm not sure.
It does have monster sillage. If Blenheim Bouquet and Vintage Tabarome express aristocratic disdain, Azzaro feels more like a union leader with underworld connections, a pro boxer, or a self made millionaire.
Highly recommended while playing poker and raising it up.
If any of the players ask what you're wearing, shrug and say you forgot-- but you think it's Acqua di Gio
