Apple and a slightly utter orange combine to form the opening blast. It is bright and of a cool freshness.

In the drydown a salty undertone emerges, with an aquatic tone attached to it. There is a metallic feel also, also this is counterbalanced later on by a restrained sweetness that is owed to white musks that are added it. The salty and citrus components gradually peter out with time.

The sweet side is further enhanced in the base, when a tonka impression is added, combined with a nonspecific woodsiness.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

A pleasant scent for cooler summer days, with an interesting conceptualisation of the idea that its name conjures up. The similarities between this creation and Nautica Voyage are obvious. This Azzaro is not bad, but a bit too generic at stages. 2.75/5.

This is complete garbage, and I would add that it wasn't always like this. Years ago it did smell like a fresh fruity aquatic, albeit synthetic; something in the territory of Nautica Voyage. Now this reeks of harsh metallic aromachemicals, with unbalanced blending. Now it's in the same camp as Ferragamo's Incanto Blue, though the latter is worse.

For what its worth, Nautica Voyage is a much superior alternative based on current versions. Seriously, even Aqua Velva Ice Blue smells much nicer for a fraction of the cost. Yes, it's in the same general category as Acqua di Gio, but the difference in quality is about the same as the difference in price.

Generic fast food citrus opening collapsing to something peppery and cheap. Sea salt? Does it make any difference? Scrubber.

Fragrance: 5/10
Projection: 7/10
Longevity: 7/10

Similar to Chrome but with better performance and a salty beach note. Thought it was originally coconut or sun tan lotion. I like this better than Nautica Voyage but feel like they are similar.

Performance is really good. Projection is above average for the first 5-6 hours and then the final skin scent phase lasts almost all day.

'Chrome Legend' by Azzaro is a very pleasant surprise and blind buy that I am very glad I took a chance on. Being a fan of the original 'Chrome', I figured this can't be a bad fragrance. I could never really wear the original version anymore as its been played out, advertised, and beaten to death for the last twenty years. Everyone knows it, so I try to not be that obvious when selecting a cologne.

The initial blast smells exactly like seawater, the ocean, saltwater. It has this strange cooling feeling because of the scent. You literally FEEL a good ten degrees cooler just smelling or spraying this stuff on. I get citrus notes, a bit of moss and vetiver, but an overwhelming smell of ocean water. It took a few wears to appreciate the complexity and uniqueness of this, but several weeks later I absolutely love the scent.

It has some similarity to the original Chrome, but is definitely less metallic, more refined. As it settles down, the citrus and sea notes match the vetiver and cedar and it screams spring and summer. A fantastic scent to wear in the high heat and humid environments. It is a fresh, aquatic with a masculine undertone that doesn't offender or irritate anyone. Overall, solid performance.

With a liberal dose of a dozen sprays (neck, shoulders, wrists and chest), I am getting 7-10 hours of longevity, with a subtle trail after the first six or seven hours. It projects fairly good, and sillage is good for the first half of its life.

I only use this in the warmer months and on the hottest of days, at the beach or at the pool, or just out on the terrace having drinks. It works perfectly in these situations and gathers a fair amount of compliments. For the price this commands, if you love the smell of the ocean, or are a fan of sporty aquatics, this will easily be an instant favorite of yours and is blind buy worthy.

I thought I would like this because of the note list, but I do not. It is very synthetic on the first spray. And for me, this doesn't fade. Sillage and longevity were also very poor, I had to reapply twice in an eight hour period. Extremely disappointing.
