    Default Azzaro Pour Homme - bad blind buy

    Hi all,

    Was in TJ maxx and saw the azzaro pour homme and bought it blind. I don't think it for me as I get a terrible headache from it. I just had 2 sprays on my wrists and had to wash it off for the headache to go.

    Has anyone else had this issue? I hope I can return it.

    I have a friend that had this issue; however, he get headaches from most any perfume (fragrance).

    Personally, I don't get headaches from any perfume.

    Not my type of fragrance; and you should be able to return it to TJ Maxx

    I have never had that problem with this fragrance, but of course if you don't like it return it.

    No headache problems with it. Kind of like it, just not crazy about it. But at least, even if you can't return it, you didn't spend too much.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Can you really return an opened fragrance in the USA? In Spain this is impossible...

    In my experience, it is rare to be literally irritated by a frag (such as it causing throat discomfort). If it's too strong, I would dilute it. However, you may need to get accustomed to notes that you are unfamiliar with and that seem "synthetic" or irritating, such as oakmoss. What I do it to take the cap off and smell it every few days, then trying wearing it again a couple weeks later, with minimal application, perhaps an inch above your navel. Then you can layer clothing on top of it to weaken it if that's necessary.

    That's too bad, I love this one! But if it doesn't work for you, no need to force yourself to like it. Return it if possible, and if you can't just pass it along or try to sell/swap it. Thankfully this is an inexpensive one!

    This has happened to me with other fragrances, but when i gave them a full wearing after 2 days ( after i let my nose take a break), no headaches occured .

    Now if you DIDN'T like the scent, that's a different story ....
    Hypocrites will always be a thorn in my back....and my middle finger will always be the best remedy.....

    Take it back. Then look on Ebay for a bottle of the vintage juice (silver label rather than embossed). It's a much warmer frag, the old stuff; bigger & bolder too.

    A love or hate scent, even if I like its notes, it took quite long to get accustomed to their strength

    Try to return it if not, sell it on Ebay.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    I get a headache from Azzaro pH. One of a very few scents that does it to me. Tea Rose is the other one that gets me every time. Azzaro is a great fougere, but unfortunately it's a bit too intense, with little diminution over time. Sorry to hear this one didn't work for you, hope you can give it back.
