Reviews of Wanted by Night

Wanted By Night is on the top of my Fall/Winter fragrance list!!! It opens with the cinnamon and tobacco notes, then the cedar comes out very well on the dry down after about an hour or 2 of wear. It's not overpowering at all in my opinion and a great choice to wear for just about any occasion. I will keep this in my collection for sure!!!

Much better than the original, with a great green apple note in the opening. Spicy and sort of gourmand. Performance is ok, but due to a boring lackluster dry down, it may seem weaker.

What I like about it is that I can't quite think of anything to compare it to. It does have a little bit of the original Wanted in it, but no more than 20%. It's sort of like this is perhaps a younger mans Baldessarini Ambre, or maybe even an update version of DKNY Be Delicious for men. It could also be compared to Givenchy Very Irresistible, but without the mint and chocolate.

I wish the dry down had more depth to it. It's sort fo just a watery, musky, cedar.

Strong, spicy cinnamon. Smells synthetic. Nothing special. Bang average!

I tried the EdP of Azzaro Wanted by Night ( the EdT has brass colored 'bullets' in the bottle).

The opening is not nice. It's too much and it's quite synthetic. A sweet anise, some hints of tropical fruit (mango? tuttifrutti?) and some citrus. As said, they are not very natural fruit notes but the tropical ones are the most natural. At this stage it's sweet and sour, however, the way the sourness comes across is as if it was definitely intended to be sweet but kind of ended up smelling 'off' in a way.

It gets better though. And I think they traded off scoring with the opening for longevity of the fruit notes, which is very good.

The drydown is cinnamon, red cedarwood, ambery sweetness. In the background (and when rubbing) there are still tropical fruit notes present which is remarkable. Good projection and longevity I have to say. Sillage too probably.

All in all I have personally smelled similar note combinations in certain room perfumes (apart from the fruitiness), so this EdP reminds me of those so I cannot position it as a success/positive, even if I don't actually find it that bad, but because it's coming from Azzaro the lack of creativity in that part is not acceptable to me. This might not be the case for others! It's not the manliest in the drydown either, must be said.

A bit of (blonde) tobacco would have helped it a lot imo. I now see that Tobacco is actually listed but I don't get any of it. That said, with more tobacco, it might have gone towards a V&R Spicebomb clone.

A very nice addition to the Azzaro range, created by Quentin Bisch, who is very young and very talented creator, judging by other creations like the JPGaultier Essence and Thierry Mugler Angel Muse, both of which have a lot of body and personality. Wanted by night reminds me a little bit (but not too much) of Azzaro Elixir, but Elixir is an eau de toilette, while wanted by night being eau de parfum is a lot more lasting throughout the day and night. To my opinion, red cedarwood is also quite an original ingredient, as not many creators hace used it. Added on tobacco and cinnamon makes a perfect mix result.

I've tried it a few times. I don't know. Doesn't really impress me much. Probably just not my thing or something. Average. Does not make me want to wear it at all. Nothing interesting. Doesn't stink and not weak. Neutral.
