    Default EL Azuree 1969 - PROS and CONS?

    Why would/ wouldn't you buy it?

    I'd buy it 'cos it's fab -- a sweeter Cabochard.

    Guess the price has to be right, though -- how much, if you don't mind me asking?

    Oh, buy! Here in the UK, it's hard to locate. It's a really good leather, to my mind!

    I have vintage Azuree and it's great. Leather is more pronounced than newer bottles. One of Bernard Chant's masterpieces, along with Cabochard and Aramis.

    Btw, could you tell the difference between EdP and Cologne concentrate?

    I have 1970s-vintage CC. It's strong. Don't know the EDP.

    I didn't know the vintage juice was more leather prominent - good to know. I like the 'new' juice I've smelled but to me it always just reminds me too much of Aramis. A 'more leathery Aramis' sounds great.

    I agree that vintage Azuree is more leathery than the current formulation, but I don't think it's more leathery than Aramis, whose closest relation to my nose is vintage Cabochard. I find that Azuree, both vintage and current, is more citrussy and sweeter than Aramis, but neither is as leathery as Aramis or Cabochard.

    Thanks for your comments Evangeline. I think you hit the nail on the head...Cabochard is my favorite more so than Azuree. If even vintage Azuree is not more leathery than Cabochard, then I will stick with Cabochard.

    For $16 snap it up!! I have the cologne splash which allows more floral(gardinia I think)out in the topnotes and then goes into a great leather the super cologne skips the flowers and goes streight for leather(on me) it seems stronger than Cabochard edt to me ---but then I don't know what vintage (newer or older )that I have.

    One reason I think my vintage Azuree is more leathery is that the citrus top notes are inherently unstable and die over time. My bottle is OLD; dates from the early 1970s, per some pictures i've seen out there.
