    Default Azzaro Pour Homme (Blind)

    i will have my Azzaro Pour Homme (1978) next week , now I've never smelled this one before but i told my traveling friend to get me a bottle from duty free because it is a cheapy and am really curious about all the hype from this one...

    so what shell i expect from this fragrance ? Am 26 years old and I've read everywhere that it is an old man scent , so does this scent will end on my dad's shelf lol ? or it is a keeper ? i appreciate a little review guys , thanks

    It is a fresh musky aromatic fragrance that smells really pleasing to the nose. Good purchase.

    You may get a bottle of it, but it's not what you would have gotten in 1978 !

    It's a smooth, classy scent that really does smell timeless. I'm a youngish guy and I get plenty of compliments while wearing this. Nobody has ever said it struck them as outdated, so I think you will really enjoy it.

    Azzaro PH was one of the fragrances that turned me to Fougères (and Chypres), the categories that have this 'old man' vibe to them.

    You're 26, great time to explore these categories and have some mature scents in your wardrobe. Maybe like me you'll feel more mature, confident, distinct from the rest of the age pack.

    It's classic, but not as dated, as not be pulled off easily by someone aged 26, IMHO it adds a touch of maturity and elegance without being stuffy, obnoxious or antiquated

    Azzaro is a classic fougere scent that is absolutely required in every wardrobe. It is very inexpensive, but is of high quality. Depending on what you wear now, it may take a few test runs before your nose picks up the true nature of Azzaro. For example, if you've been wearing light, aquatic or sporty fragrances, don't expect the same from Azzaro. Expect better, much better. This one is a winner. Good luck!

    It does not have as much old school vibe as you could expect from date of release but it is very masculine, spicy, dry fragrance. I like it and do not feel it is that much dated but my girlfriend said to me that I should not wear it till I am 50 lol... I am 30 btw but look younger.

    I'm in my mid twenties and I can't imagine myself ever wanting to smell like it. Definitely an older-man scent.

    When you first put it on, it will smell like a pleasant, somewhat generic aromatic fougere. Nothing wrong with that, but let it develop for a couple of hours for the real fireworks. It becomes a scrumptious, can't-stop-sniffing-your-arm extravaganza that lasts and lasts.

    This really is one of the gems of the fragrance world. If you don't take to it at first, do at least give it several complete wearings.

    thanks for the replies guys , i didn't receive it yet , i will receive it around the weekend...
    well i know Paco Rabanne pour homme which they say it is similar to azzaro and i think PR smells outdated...

    I am 31 ( although i look much younger ), and i could not feel comfortable at all wearing this fougere. I surely see where the "old man scent " association comes from ! Maybe it's the way it was blended, maybe it's the spices , i don't know . I just think it did not suit neither my personality nor my age. It "smelled" outdated and old fashioned ( don't ask me to explain that ) .

    I do hope the case would be positively different for you though !

    Some may say it smells outdated as it is simply not a trendy lighter aquatic / sweet smell of today's best sellers. That's all. Think of it as unique. I adore this fragrance. Pound for pound, this has to be my all-time complimented fragrance out of 50 bottles. Tuscany is somewhat similar. I hope you enjoy it. I honestly don't think the formula has not changed over the years.

    It's brilliant. It is an amazing scent in the fougere style, and a real compliment getter, which is a surprise to me. It is hard to describe a fougere, but it's definitely that, with a great animalic note. It turned me on to fougeres, which I realize I adore. It and Rive Gauche share some similarities, but Azzaro is much neater and smoother around the edges, while Rive Gauche is more 3-dimensional.

    Bottom line, it smells great. Calling it "outdated" is such a cop-out. If you can enjoy a good movie from the 70s, you can enjoy a good fragrance from the 70s, and this one is a bit like the Shining; awesome.

    Hmm, well said! I agree completely with this fragrance adding a touch of maturity.

    Some might consider this one a little dated, but it definitely can be pulled off today. If you gave this to your cliche 18 year old, however, they may consider this one of your "old man" fragrances.

    One of the legendary fougeres that should be in everyone's collection. The "old man scent" idea is nonsense, so enjoy formulating your own opinion about it.

    I don't have much of an "old man" associatiation with fragrances anymore, and I never really had much of an "old man prejudice" to begin with. I like what I like, and I typically like super masculine stuff(not always). The first cologne I bought for myself was Drakkar Noir at 16 years old in 2002. Anyway Azzaro is spicy and dark green smelling, and it is powerful but almost never overpowering. Azzaro is very well balanced, and really is very nice, and I think if you are an aquatic kind of guy you will still like it but feel it is more of a formal cologne.
    Some people say it is barber shopish and it is in a way. It does have a slight barbasol type smell to it but more spicy, and less sweet. It is really hard not to like Azzaro, and I have been complimented on it by girls younger than me. I have never smelled Aramis Devin, but I have heard it's like Polo which is actually more brash, and loud than Azzaro.

    Azzaro is of course a classic. I don't wear it too often because I find it a bit sour--but angular fougered tend to be that way. It is in line with Tuscany, Sartorial, Paco Rabanne, and others. It has a somewhat strong anise presence.

    Azzaro is the type of scent you wear when you stop wearing jeans and start wearing slacks or suits. It's not an "old man" scent, but it's definitely a mature, sophisticated one. Definitely one of the best scents out there, and affordable, to boot.

    It's just as good in jeans and a t-shirt as it is in a suit.

    I saw this in a discount perfume emporium the other day, and smelled it from the bottle curiously. It struck me as more 'heavy' than is my usual preference - in a masculine sort of powerhouseish way. I'll apply it to the skin next time I'm there, though. At that price point, it would be convenient to like. I don't normally like anise, so hopefully I can accommodate that note.

    Right, but try wearing jeans and a t-shirt to a job interview.

    My comment wasn't on what type of fashion that Azzarro PH should be paired with, but rather a way of saying it is a classy, sophisticated scent.
